Bitwarden Secrets Manager Safeguards Sensitive Credentials Across Development Cycle

Bitwarden Secrets Manager Safeguards Sensitive Credentials Across Development Cycle

By Greg Tavarez

Data breaches and security are top of mind for many. However, managing passwords, keys and other sensitive information is critical but still a challenge for businesses working across myriad environments, platforms and teams. As a result, developers have an increasing role to play in maintaining the security of sensitive company data.

Safeguarding critical assets (such as database keys, codebases, and privileged credentials) is paramount. By ensuring the security of these elements, development teams can seamlessly navigate diverse environments and platforms without falling prey to vulnerabilities. According to a recent survey conducted by Bitwarden, the significance of this issue is underscored by the fact that nearly 25% of developers have encountered the harrowing experience of a data breach.

On top of that, the poll found that almost one-fifth of the respondents disclosed that they dedicate over five hours per week solely to the meticulous task of managing developer secrets. This commitment speaks volumes about the intricate nature of the development environment, where safeguarding sensitive information commands a substantial portion of time and attention. The poll serves as a wake-up call for development teams to bridge the gap between awareness and implementation.

To allow DevOps and IT teams to securely store, manage, automate and share sensitive authentication credentials at scale throughout the development lifecycle, Bitwarden launched the general availability of Secrets Manager.

Bitwarden combines zero knowledge, end-to-end encryption with an easy-to-use interface and predictable pricing for secrets management.

The platform boasts comprehensive developer-focused documentation, accompanied by a continually expanding roster of out-of-the-box integrations and software development kits. Facilitating streamlined operations, Bitwarden enables the effortless provisioning of employees through single sign-on, system for cross-domain identity management and directory integrations.

This holistic approach is further augmented by its commitment to predictable pricing, consolidating Bitwarden's position as a comprehensive solution for efficient secrets management.

“In just the last year alone, we’ve seen a spike in what should be preventable data breaches, with the culprit in many cases being poor management of sensitive credentials,” said Michael Crandell, CEO of Bitwarden. “Bitwarden Secrets Manager addresses this by giving developers, DevOps, and IT teams the tools to secure their secrets throughout the lifecycle and reduce their chances of unprivileged access that results in a data breach.”

With a growing number of enterprises embracing digital evolution and transitioning to cloud-based systems, it becomes imperative for them to maintain a watchful stance, safeguarding their crucial information and themselves against unauthorized entry.
