RevBits , a software provider for comprehensive 360-degree cyber defense, today announced the availability of its CI / CD access management module, further enhancing the management solution privileged access of RevBits, rich in features.
Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI / CD), enable software developers and DevOps teams to meet the high and dynamic demands of users. These two methodologies combined create a CI / CD pipeline, allowing DevOps to deliver software updates more frequently and more reliably. However, in the absence of sufficient supervision, or if safety is not a key requirement, they carry potential safety risks.
Building on its technological leadership in the access management market, RevBits has added to its solution what Gartner considers an advanced PAM feature. The RevBits PAM solution with CI / CD access management extends the capabilities of system administrators to manage and control secret access more completely.
“CI / CD Access Management was designed to address the unique scalability and agility challenges associated with authenticating, authorizing and auditing secrets in DevOps environments,” said David Schiffer , CEO of RevBits. “As a module of our advanced PAM solution, CI / CD enables organizations to reduce the security and compliance risks associated with the proliferation of secrets, while improving productivity. ”
When DevOps create an application for a test, staging, or production server, they often include secrets. These can be credentials or security keys, which authenticate data associated with an API, application, SSH, certificate, etc. The RevBits Secrets Manager, can be audited and centrally managed to protect and control secrets.
“Using a secret management plugin in CI / CD environments is a more secure approach. By applying common DevOps tools like Jenkins, Kubernetes, and others, developers can configure variables and associate them with the location and values they imputed for secrets, ”said Mucteba Celik, CTO of RevBits. “By continuing to enrich our PAM solution, with modules such as CI / CD access management, RevBits continues to provide the tools businesses need to protect their valuable assets, networks, applications and services. ”
