Keeper Security Acquires Glyptodon

Keeper Security announced the acquisition of Glyptodon, the creator of Glyptodon Enterprise, a remote access gateway which provides DevOps and IT teams with effortless access to RDP, SSH, VNC and Kubernetes endpoints through a web browser. Glyptodon is also the company that invented and maintains Apache Guacamole, the open source platform used by millions of people for accessing remote desktops.

The acquisition enhances Keeper Security's continued evolution in the identity and access cybersecurity space, particularly in enabling hyper-secure access to remote resources. It includes integration of Glyptodon Enterprise into Keeper Security's zero-trust and zero-knowledge security and encryption architecture, resulting in a highly-secure, agentless remote access platform, without the need of a virtual private network (VPN).

"In today's changing work environment with distributed technical teams and compute resources residing in the cloud or in a remote location, it is vital that enterprises can securely and quickly connect with those systems," said Darren Guccione, CEO and Co-Founder of Keeper Security. "Acquiring Glyptodon is an important component of our go-forward strategy as we unify essential privileged access management features into our cybersecurity platform to protect organizations in the public and private sectors."

Guccione added, "Glyptodon created an innovative enterprise-grade remote access gateway that provides DevOps and IT teams with zero trust access to RDP, SSH, VNC and Kubernetes endpoints through any web browser - without the hassle, expense and reliability and latency issues of a VPN. It was also a primary contributor and moderator of the open source product Apache Guacamole, which is used by over 10 million IT professionals. This acquisition catalyzes Keeper Security's mission to connect people with the digital resources they need in the simplest, fastest and most secure way possible. Glyptodon's addition to the Keeper portfolio will provide customers with a powerful and modern Privileged Access Management solution. Keeper PAM will have the essential features IT admins need, coupled with the most advanced security and a phenomenal end-user experience."

"We're excited to become part of Keeper Security which is leading how enterprises protect company data at a time when the traditional way of working has been transformed," said Glyptodon CEO Mike Jumper. "Bringing Glyptodon's technology and insight securing enterprise remote computing access to Keeper Security will provide customers with the industry's most comprehensive and secure remote working experience."

Keeper will continue to support the open-source Apache Guacamole project while also advancing the capabilities of its fully-supported, commercial version. Alongside the public announcement, Keeper has integrated Glyptodon and Keeper Secrets Manager, providing encrypted vault storage of access credentials. In the coming months ahead, Keeper Security plans to enhance Glyptodon and integrate advanced capabilities into the Keeper Enterprise platform. To learn more about Glyptodon, please visit
