Feature by Feature Comparison



Rotate the identity and secret credentials at high frequency.
Existing solutions rely on static or semi-static credentials that are easy targets for adversaries.
Verify trust in a workload identity at each session.
Automated PKI certificate identities, may be self-signed, seldom rotate and lack a workload identity chain of trust.
Scale with operations in real-time and in all environments.
Existing solutions can't operate across all cloud environments in real time and interrupt operations to rotate secrets.
Harden both the client and server endpoints from attack.
Existing solutions may protect the API endpoint, but do not protect the client endpoint in an exchange.
Tamper-proof data in transit between endpoints.
Existing solutions may use TLS or mTLS, but these may not be present everywhere, leaving data exposed.
Reject all malware before it reaches an endpoint.
Existing solutions may scan traffic for malware, but inspection can't find all malware before it is delivered to an endpoint.
Eliminates the "secret zero" problem since secrets aren't stored.
Secrets vaults require more access keys. Creating a chain of keys and storage.
