Bitwarden, the cybersecurity company that sells a popular password manager, has released an open-source end-to-end encryption software that allows developers using Teams to securely store, manage, automate, and transfer secrets.

Cyberattacks on major companies have become a major issue around the world, with 60% of global IT leaders reporting their company has faced a cyberattack within the last year. 43% of attacks have reportedly been on small businesses, with 60% of these businesses going out of business within several years of the attack.

Global incidents like the MOVEit data breach have impacted hundreds of companies worldwide, and the trend of large-scale attacks is only increasing.

Bitwarden’s new Bitwarden Secrets Manager feature protects business secrets through end-to-end encryption, allowing unlimited secure safety and storage of API keys, authentication certificates, and other sensitive information used for business purposes.

It grants user permissions depending on individual users, groups, and service accounts, allowing for flexibility in where you share secrets.

This lets developers share secrets without needing to send .env files or hard-coding their information and leaving it vulnerable to cyberattacks. It also comes with a growing list of out-of-the-box integrations and SDKs, offering as much flexibility for developers as possible.

The feature makes it easy for IT professionals to perform audits and manage employees via a Single Sign-On (SSO), System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM), while DevOps benefits from a single comprehensive system and a scalable secret management system based on least privilege access.

“When you want to share secrets, you don’t want to send it via email. (With Bitwarden Secrets Manager) It can be transferred to another teammate in a safe way,” said XEOS software engineer, Jonathan Vervaeke.

The Bitwarden team also revealed that the planned updates for their feature include additional integrations, enhanced access management, and expanded language support. These features will be rolled out over time.
