The Secret Is Out: Chef & Akeyless Join Forces To Accelerate DevSecOps

Chef recently joined industry-leading speakers from Progress Software and Akeyless at ChefConf '21. They discussed the importance and complexities of Secrets Management and Zero Trust access in large enterprise environments. The session "Secrets Management in Complex Environments at Scale" is now available on-demand.

The panel members shared their unique insights on why the scale and complexity of secrets continue to increase. For example, they discussed the fact that monolith applications have become relics, with containers now being the de facto standard as enterprises refactor apps to become more modular and designed to run across hybrid, multicloud infrastructures.

All workloads need secrets (i.e., credentials, certificates, and keys) to communicate with each other. Workloads are also transient; there is no fixed network location. Thus, securing and controlling their access through the network is becoming increasingly challenging.

In this panel discussion, we explore why Secrets Management and a Zero Trust approach to access is so important, but can also be difficult to accomplish.

You’ll learn how Chef evaluated other, open-source solutions, but quickly realized that a hybrid, multicloud environment needs a more comprehensive solution. And, as a result, they chose Akeyless for their Secrets Management and Secure Remote access initiatives. Now Akeyless and Chef work together to simplify Secrets Management for organizations of all sizes and industries.
