Enterprise organizations experience a unique set of security challenges and characteristics that may make them a good fit for self-hosting their secrets management solution.
Enterprises often find themselves as prime targets for malicious attacks due to their expansive tech stacks, sheer size, and organizational complexity. As a result, they need to invest heavily in dedicated security teams and establish robust protocols.

Dedicated security teams bring the technical expertise needed to launch and maintain a self-host environment. A self-hosted secrets management solution not only empowers development teams with secure secrets management, but also helps DevOps adhere to enterprise security protocols.
