Thycotic, a provider of privileged access management (PAM) solutions to more than 12,500 organizations worldwide, including 25 of the Fortune 100, today announced the integration of its award-winning PAM solution, Secret Server, with the fastest growing messaging and collaboration platform in history, Slack.

Enterprises are rapidly implementing PAM solutions that secure passwords and other digital credentials to meet security best practices and compliance regulations. Yet, many organizations struggle to gain adoption because traditional PAM solutions require users to interrupt their workflow in order to access credentials. With the Slack integration, users can seamlessly connect to Secret Server using the same communications platform where they already spend a significant amount of time.
“We are firm believers in transparent PAM, which means people should be able to work securely within the systems or workflow they already use and keep PAM in the background,” says Jai Dargan, Thycotic Vice President of Product Management. “Now, Thycotic Secret Server users can stay in Slack and keep privileged accounts secure without any context-switching or disruption.”
