HashiCorp is the company behind the wildly successful open-source software projects Terraform and Vault. Terraform enables the deployment and management of infrastructure as code across multiple clouds and platforms. With more than 26k stars on GitHub, Terraform has become the de facto standard for automating infrastructure deployments on-premises and in the cloud.
Vault is a secrets lifecycle management application that provides the secure storage, generation, and encryption of sensitive data. Vault can be deployed on any cloud, on-premises, or even in a hybrid scenario. Integrating with multiple authentication platforms and providing dynamic management of cloud credentials, Vault is becoming the preferred secrets management solution for many organizations.
