One week ago CyberArk released another update for Conjur Enterprise, which now has reached the 13.2 version and this was definitely another step in the right direction!
This release includes the usual bugfix, expands the integration of Conjur ( eg now OpenShift 4.14 is supported) but most importantly adds 2 super interesting features:
CyberArk Vault Synchronizer high availability support
Enhanced Conjur to support Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver
Synchronizer high availability enhances the DR strategy of Conjur and now it's possible to setup a "passive" Synchronizer in DR site aware of the status of the primary Synchronizer that comes to live in case of a failure.
This feature consents an optimization of the resources and of the strategy building the DR for the customers!
The enhanced support to Container storage interface driver, consent to Conjur to inject directly into the correct pod the secrets bypassing the need to have a sidecar/init container.
This new feature consents customers to optimize the resource usage on the clusters and continue to fetch secrets securely.
CyberArk Conjur is in constant evolution release by release, and in my opinion, the evolution of Conjur during the last year has been terrific. Big kudos to CyberArk !
Asa final reminder, CyberArk Conjur is a secrets manager and is available in 3 different versions:
