    A tool for secrets management, encryption as a service, and privileged access management

    If data infrastructure is evolving to a dynamic nature, why is it still the case that you're using static database credentials inside your organization? Not only are these shared credentials used by humans, often times the same credentials are used in all of the API calls made by the applications. This poses a huge security risk as a leaked database credential in the wrong hands can cause havoc. In this blog, I introduce the concept of dynamic credentials and use HashiCorp Vault to dispense a short-lived credential to connect to a managed PostgreSQLĀ® service.
