Delinea secret server enhances disaster recovery and introduces VPN-less session management

Delinea, a leading provider of privileged access management (PAM) solutions for seamless security, has announced new features and enhancements to further expand Secret Server’s award-winning capabilities.

In addition to new design updates based on customer feedback, the company introduced new security controls for better resiliency and Remote Access Service. Their Secret Server offers users a VPN-less session management feature for even easier and integrated privileged account management.

The 2022 CrowdStrike Global Threat Report stated that 80% of all cyberattacks involve credentials. At the same time, organisations are moving more of their infrastructure to the cloud and enabling their employees to work remotely, which can further increasing the likelihood of an attack. To minimise risk, organisations are now looking for further protection for key accounts whilst also managing privileged access, no matter where the vault or the employees are located.

Better resiliency ensures secrets access

The latest release of Secret Server includes enhancements to existing disaster recovery capabilities by providing organisations with automated redundancy to ensure break-glass access to secrets in the unlikely case of infrastructure failure. Whether users deploy Secret Server on-premises or in the cloud, they now have the flexibility to automatically replicate secret data either to another on-premises or cloud instance to ensure resiliency. Cloud infrastructure enhancements provide seamless failover, faster disaster recovery, and hybrid failover.

VPN-less session management for a remote workforce

Delinea is also introducing the new Remote Access Service add-on for Secret Server. This new capability provides VPN-less browser-based RDP/SSH session management for contractors and remote employees. In addition to the current session management capabilities of Secret Server, Remote Access Service improves ease of use and reduces friction by requiring no end-user client or VPN connection to better support the various environments and systems used by an extended workforce. Remote Access Service works with Secret Server on-premises and in the cloud.

Phil Calvin, Chief Product Officer at Delinea, said: “With this latest release of Secret Server, we are improving the resiliency of secrets for our customers with automated disaster recovery options for both on-premises and the cloud.

“We are also improving usability and reducing friction by providing session management capabilities that require no VPN or end-user client to better support the current environment where more employees and contractors are working remotely.”
