HashiCorp Extends its Zero Trust Security Solution with Secure Remote Access Delivered in the Cloud
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HashiCorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: HCP), a leading provider of multi-cloud infrastructure automation software, today announced the general availability of HashiCorp Cloud Platform (HCP) Boundary, a secure remote access product. With this release, Boundary joins HCP Vault and HCP Consul to provide the industry’s first zero trust security solution to secure applications, networks, and people built for the cloud.
As organizations move to the cloud and adopt cloud operating models, they require a different approach to security — commonly referred to as zero trust security — where the default security posture is to trust nothing, authenticate and authorize everything. But the gap between legacy security postures and the accelerated move to the cloud is contributing to a significant increase in security breaches. According to the HashiCorp State of Cloud Strategy Survey, 89% of respondents believe security is the number one determining factor for cloud success, which is driving organizations to adopt zero trust security postures.
HashiCorp’s approach to zero trust security focuses on using identity to secure applications, networks, and people across multiple clouds, on-premises, and hybrid environments, which reduces the attack surface and automates complex security workflows. This ensures people, machines, and services are authenticated, every action is authorized, and data is protected.
“As organizations continue to expand their cloud estates, they must shift their security strategies to keep up with the growth and complexity of applications, network components, and cloud-based systems,” said Armon Dadgar, co-founder and CTO, HashiCorp. “At HashiCorp, we have always believed that identity is the foundation for zero trust security for applications, networks, and users. With HCP Boundary, companies now have a modern solution for privileged access management, securing access in dynamic, ephemeral environments for their workforce. We think we’ve reached an important milestone for our customers by delivering a security solution built for today’s threat and infrastructure landscape.”
As organizations move out of traditional datacenters and into multiple clouds, hybrid, and edge environments, securing their infrastructure becomes more complex at scale. The HashiCorp zero trust solution covers all three of these aspects:
General Availability of HCP Boundary
HCP Boundary allows teams and users to access the critical systems they need while abstracting the session connection, establishment, credential issuance, and revocation. Boundary provides operations and security teams the ability to dynamically pull in cloud service catalogs and on-premises resources and map out policies to which systems, users, and groups should have access. To do this Boundary leverages Vault to provide passwordless connections, and after each use revokes the credentials. This helps ensure critical information like credentials, networks, and resources are never exposed to the user or outside actors.
In addition to core secure remote access capabilities, Boundary also offers:
