Targeted attacks on corporate IT networks have increased in scale and public visibility – and show no sign of slowing down. In many cases, privileged credentials to business-critical systems are the target for such attacks, as they can be used to move laterally across a network within mere hours or minutes. Many organizations are struggling to secure credentials, which hackers are constantly trying to steal, in order to gain access to corporate networks.
As a result, organizations are adopting password management tools to eliminate storing passwords on sticky notes or spreadsheets. However, many enterprises don’t realize that the password management needs for privileged users are substantially different than for ‘regular’ individuals. Consumer focused products for storing website log-ins such as 1Password, Lastpass and Dashlane are great for personal use – but they don’t address the needs for privileged users within an enterprise.

Vault includes credential management, secure password storage, password rotation, and credential discovery.
