SAN FRANCISCO and WASHINGTON, April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA Conference - Thycotic, a provider of smart and effective privileged account management solutions for global organizations, today announced the integration of its flagship product, Secret Server, with Nexpose, Rapid7's vulnerability management product. As account access control becomes an even more critical facet of security infrastructure, this new integration provides IT administrators with the ability to perform more secure credentialed vulnerability scans.
Rapid7 is a leading provider of security data and analytics software and services. Rapid7's Threat Exposure Management solutions, which include Nexpose, allow information security teams to assess, prioritize, and quickly mitigate risk across their environments, from endpoint to the cloud. Nexpose can analyze vulnerabilities, controls, and configurations to find the "who, what, and where" of IT security risk across the modern network. With Nexpose, users can efficiently manage vulnerabilities found in operating systems, third-party software, Web applications, browsers and databases, as well as identify misconfiguration issues, all in one solution. Nexpose offers robust analytics for prioritizing security issues, including business context and exploitability, to allow security teams to focus on the most critical risks.
"Rapid7 is committed to providing solutions that are simple to use and effective at solving complex security issues," said Buck Watia, senior director of corporate and business development at Rapid7. "The integration of Nexpose and Secret Server delivers convenient credentialed vulnerability scans, limiting the risk associated with the sharing of privileged account passwords."
With the integration of Secret Server and Nexpose, IT administrators are able to mask credentials when accessing key applications and accounts on their network to perform vulnerability scans. Nexpose retrieves passwords directly from the Secret Server vault, which in turn maintains detailed security audit trails, tracking when a user accesses credentials and for what purpose. Administrators will maintain the ability to automatically generate complex passwords and perform scheduled rotations of credentials, diminishing the risk of privileged account abuses.
"Thycotic's partnership with Rapid7 is a natural one, because both companies share a similar focus on providing the customer with the tools they need to make securing their organization's sensitive data easy," said Jonathan Cogley, founder and CEO for Thycotic. "Users of both solutions are able to add an entirely new layer of security to their networks with very minimal effort."
Thycotic will showcase the capabilities and security features of Secret Server as well as the new Rapid7 integration live at the RSA Conference, April 20-24, 2015 in San Francisco.
