Secret Server Copy-To-Clipboard for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox

26 03 2013

The Mozilla Firefox add-on and the extension for Google Chrome allows values from Secret Server to be copied directly to the clipboard. This allows for ease of access when a user needs to apply information from Secret Server to other locations, however, clipboards generally do not clear the data that was copied.

How do you protect your Secret data from being stolen from your clipboard? Secret Server’s Copy-To-Clipboard extensions add an extra layer of security to your clipboard by allowing the configuration of an automated schedule to clear the clipboard, so that the clipboard is cleared when exiting the browser. Each clipboard extension has a section that allows you to configure these options.


This makes it safe to use your clipboard and know that if you walk away from your computer for a few moments, someone won’t be able to take a password from your clipboard. It also helps prevent the accidental pasting of sensitive information into unsafe places, such as a chat client or email.

Currently, these security options are only available in the Firefox and Chrome extensions. Stay tuned for this functionality in Internet Explorer.

New Webinar – Easily Manage and Secure all your Windows local administrator passwords

13 03 2013

Use discovery to quickly find all your local Windows administrator accounts – import them into the Secret Server vault (even if you don’t know the current password). Then set a schedule (30, 90 days etc.) for regular password changing and never worry about those passwords again.  Whenever a sysadmin needs a password, they just come to Secret Server to find it.  Using Discovery Rules allows all of this to be automated.

Join us for this Webinar on Thursday, March 28th 2013 at 11:30am EST (requires active support). This will be the first of a new Webinar series that will happen on the 4th Thursday of each month.  Change your email preferences to receive updates about these upcoming webinars.

These webinars will also be recorded so you can view them after the event or share them with your team members.  Each Webinar will have two engineers speaking about best practices, features, security and general problems you can solve using Thycotic products.  If you have specific items you would like to see covered, please email your Account Manager.

Thanks, Kaitlin.
