Secret Keys to the Password Kingdom

Building trust with customers is a must for MSPs. And because of the unique nature of MSPs, it’s not always easy. Your customers aren’t simply giving you administrative access to a few admin accounts—they’re sharing secrets which must be securely managed across all the systems, apps, and users you manage for them. Passwords, SSH keys, licenses, cloud infrastructure logins, and SaaS portal accounts are just the beginning. To solve issues quickly, your technicians can’t waste time locating the credentials needed to resolve issues and make users happy.

Account Takeover IS Your Problem

Phishing and malware are scary enough, but the number-one tactic used by bad actors to get access to and take over accounts is something different: using compromised credentials. Why? Because it’s so easy. Data breaches happen almost constantly, and credentials get leaked. At the same time, people are prone to reuse the same few passwords across all their accounts. These two facts spell trouble, as it’s almost impossible for an IT professional to know if working credentials to their company email or CRM are floating around the dark web. Almost impossible that is, until now.

Network baseline: new technologies, new challenges

The issue of network baseline arose quite some time ago. Everything started from the understanding that networks are not static entities, but are a set of elements that change over time. It was also understood that networks are not only made up of physical and tangible elements, such as a router or a switch, but we must also have more abstract elements, such as the traffic pattern over a WAN link, for example.

While our eyes were turned to the screen, something else was happening—two former co-workers were deciding it was time to start a new adventure together. Know what that means?
