Thycotic, a provider of smart and effective privileged access management solutions for global organizations, today announced the release of the newest version of its flagship solution, Secret Server. Designed to liberate password management tools from IT departments and make them accessible to end users, Secret Server 8.6 increases organizations' overall IT security by providing the option of using an intuitive user interface that streamlines the process of managing privileged accounts, enabling users without a background in IT security to store passwords and manage their own work-related credentials.
"Rolling out password vaulting and credential management to non-IT personnel encourages employees to be more mindful of the vulnerability of their credentials," said
Secret Server's latest version also empowers IT administrators to better manage privileged access across their organization by setting and enforcing security policies for entire folders, rather than making changes to each individual secret. IT staff can adjust and expand corporate security policies with more agility; saving time and resources previously required to ensure regulatory compliance, while also limiting opportunities for human error.
Other updates to Secret Server include the ability to enroll in two-factor authentication through Google Authenticator. This provides an additional level of security by allowing employees to use their smartphone or tablet as a security token while avoiding any administrative friction associated with managing traditional tokens. Secret Server 8.6 also features expanded support for changing passwords on websites and SaaS applications such as
"It may seem daunting to educate non-technical employees on the dangers associated with mismanaged passwords. However, when you consider the real costs associated with a breach, keeping security policies and best practices limited to the IT department is no longer an option," said
