1Password targets enterprise customers with Secrets Automation
Acquisition lets password manager integrate with enterprise infrastructure
1Password is tackling the enterprise market with a new service based on a product it acquired this month. The password management company launched 1Password Secrets Automation, which it’s offering as a way for companies to manage all their infrastructure secrets in one place.
1Password has historically focused on helping individuals secure personal data, such as login credentials and documents. This week's launch sees it branch out into the infrastructure space.
Aimed at a range of users, including cloud developers and administrators, Secrets Automation will help store tokens, login credentials, and other assets developers were already storing in 1Password's existing products. This will allow them to store their credentials in the same encrypted format but transfer them easily to their infrastructure tools when needed.
Secrets Automation includes out-of-the-box compatibility with HashiCorp Vault, Terraform, Kubernetes, and Ansible, along with client libraries in Go, Node, and Python. The company has promised more integrations soon.
The product includes granular access controls to define permission settings for employees and works across various environments, including on-premises environments and the public cloud.

1Password also acquired SecretHub, a Netherlands-based company started in 2018 that appears to have raised no institutional funding. The company began by building a secure, end-to-end encrypted file synchronization service but pivoted when it realized that it needed an easier way to store its developers’ credentials.
SecretHub has pledged to offer its product to existing customers in the same format through 2021, but it’s stopped taking new accounts.
