Bitwarden Announces Secrets Management With a Combination of Open Source, End-to-End Encryption, and Ease of Use

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.-- (March 28, 2023) -- Bitwarden, the leading open source password manager trusted by millions, today launched the open beta of Bitwarden Secrets Manager, designed to centrally secure and manage highly sensitive authentication credentials within privileged developer and DevOps environments. 

Development teams work across applications and multi-cloud infrastructures, using different tools and platforms. This leads to distributed secrets – API tokens, keys, passwords, credentials, certificates, and more —  that are difficult to manage and control, or hard-coded into source code files. 

Existing solutions have steep learning curves and are unwieldy for many teams. The implications are serious: According to the GitLab Security Trends analysis, 18% of projects hosted on GitLab were vulnerable to leaked secrets. In a separate GitGuardian report, 5 million credentials and other secrets get leaked on GitHub every year. 

For developer, devops, and IT teams, Bitwarden Secrets Manager provides a singular, simple, and convenient way to secure, control, and manage secrets. The new offering, now in beta, builds on the same trusted open source, zero knowledge, and end-to-end encryption foundation featured in the company’s industry-leading password management offering. 

Open Beta Program

During beta, users can explore early features of Bitwarden Secrets Manager, which includes the ability to create, manage, and edit secrets and projects; SDK and CLI tools; GitHub Actions integration, and more. For more information about beta, please visit:
