Today Opsera announced its technology partnership with HashiCorp, the leader in multi-cloud infrastructure automation software. With this technology partnership, Opsera offers customers the choice to use a dedicated Opsera-deployed instance of Hashicorp Vault provisioned in their customer-dedicated data-plane, or to “bring their own Vault” by connecting Opsera’s platform with customers’ existing Vault instances.
Opsera, launched in 2020 to address a gap in the DevOps market - too many tools and no simple, effective, and scalable way to connect them, with development teams spending excessive time and effort building and maintaining tool integration and scripts, or frustrated by the platform limitations of their all-in-one vendor.
Opsera’s vision is to empower Software, DevOps, and IT Engineers to deliver software faster, safer and smarter. Opsera’s continuous orchestration platform provides self-service toolchain automation, drag-and-drop declarative pipelines, and unified insights. With Opsera, development teams can choose any CI/CD tools they want, operations teams gain improved efficiency, and business leaders have unparalleled visibility into their software delivery.
The key elements of the Opsera Continuous Orchestration platform include:
Customers of SaaS platforms are right to be concerned about security, particularly when they entrust the platform with the keys to their mission-critical software and infrastructure, such as all the tools, rules, code repositories, and connectivity to production environments that running CI/CD pipelines requires. A security flaw or breach can cause irreparable harm to these customers, and easily be the death of a SaaS company.
Fortunately Opsera’s founders and lead engineers have spent decades building and securing Fortune 500 companies and leading technology startups, and applied the lessons they learned to the design of Opsera.
Opsera was designed with layered security from the start. We architected our service by separating our multi-tenant “control plane” SaaS infrastructure from all customer data by deploying a dedicated “data-plane” for each customer. Opsera keeps customer’s tools, integrations, data, logs and configurations in the customer-dedicated data-plane.
In addition, Opsera offers customers the choice to use a dedicated instance of Hashicorp Vault provisioned in their data-plane, or to “bring their own HashiCorp Vault” by connecting Opsera with their existing Vault instances, which already have their predefined keys, certificates and other sensitive information. This approach provides several layers of separation and defense to further enhance zero trust initiatives that rely on trusted identities for authentication and authorization to all layers of networking, infrastructure, and application security.
Opsera offers a dedicated Vault in each customer VPC to manage and maintain customer keys, secrets and certificates. With this approach, customers do not have to worry about the maintenance and management of Vault infrastructure and security. Opsera-provisioned Vault offers the following benefits to the customers:
As part of offering “Choice and flexibility” to enterprise customers, Opsera partners with Hashicorp to empower enterprise customers to integrate their existing Vault instances with Opsera’s platform. This approach allows customers to securely leverage their existing keys, secrets, tokens and certificates into their CI/CD declarative pipelines, to:
Step 1: Choose “Tool Registry” and then “New Tool”
Step 2: Provide Tool Name and choose Hashicorp Vault under Data Management in “Tool Identifier”
Step 3: Click Create
Step 4: Provide Vault URI, Vault Key, Vault Token, and Vault Path and Click “Save”
Step 5: Choose Customer Own Vault for Any tools under Tool Registry
Step 6: Any configurations, scripts, dynamic parameters, secrets, tokens, credentials will be stored in Customer’s Hashicorp Vault.
Opsera is the only CI/CD platform that takes your security as seriously as you do, by designing customer-dedicated VPCs into our SaaS, and provisioning your own dedicated HashiCorp Vault instance, or integrating with your Vault instances.
