Thales SafeNet Trusted Access (STA) and Thycotic work together to minimize the risks associated with hijacked credentials. STA validates identities and enforces access controls for privileged users logging into the Thycotic console, while Thycotic provides privileged management features for privileged users/accounts and manages passwords and privileged sessions.
STA provides powerful protection for privileged accounts by enforcing access policies and multi-factor authentication (MFA) at the Thycotic login screen.
By continuously applying authentication and enforcing rigorous access policies at the access point, STA offers a Zero Trust approach to security that allows only verified administrators to access privileged accounts.
Thycotic Secret Server is protected by military-grade AES256 encryption, which is implemented through unique encryption keys. These keys are then protected by an additional encryption key managed by Secret Server. The HSM integration provides an additional level of security, via an external, dedicated hardware module.
