Keeper’s powerful Automator eliminates the repetitive task of device approval for Keeper administrators. With Keeper Automator, users will enjoy instant access to Keeper on any new device without having to wait for manual administrative approval. Now with Microsoft Azure support, administrators can deploy Keeper Automator to an Azure Container Service, providing a fully cloud hosted instance of Automator.
What is Device Approval?
To prevent unauthorized access to your data, Keeper vaults must be decrypted on any device you authenticate to. On any new device, a private/public key pair must be generated on the new device to unlock your vault. This is accomplished through device approval.
What is Keeper Automator?
In the past, device approval required a manual step. An administrator would approve devices individually from the Keeper Admin Console, or a user could approve a new device from a previously approved device. Automator takes device approval to the next level, allowing organizations to host a service which performs the device approvals and key exchange automatically, without any user interaction.
Customers are delegating all login security to the identity provider when this feature is activated, for this reason, we recommend enforcing MFA on your IdP. The use of MFA on the Keeper side can also be either enforced by the Administrator or added by the individual user, in addition to the identity provider MFA settings.
The Next Generation of Automator is Here
Up until now, the Automator Service has been exclusively an on-prem solution. Administrators had the option to deploy Automator through a lightweight Windows service or an always-on Docker container that monitored your Keeper instance for device approval requests. Our latest update and integration with Azure Cloud Service, fully automated device approval in the cloud is now a reality. No on-prem installation. No on-prem maintenance. Automator is now in the cloud and always on!
