What we believe
For senhasegura, protection, access and confidentiality of privileged information are fundamental rights of any organization and society as a whole.
To help organizations build sovereignty and security over access and privileged information.
To be the best privileged access management solution in the global market.
senhasegura is a company that is part of the MT4 Technology group. We develop and provide privileged access management solutions, or PASM – Privileged Access and Session Management.
In 2015, senhasegura received the CERTICS innovation seal issued by the Ministry of Science and Technology and Innovation, recognizing it as a Brazilian technology developer and innovation generator in its segment. Also in 2015, one of our first projects was recognized abroad through the ISC² Annual Americas Information Security Leadership Awards, as an outstanding project in Latin America.
In 2016 and 2017, we were listed in Gartner* PAM Market Guide as the only Brazilian solution and among six global options that have all recommended key features. In 2017, we were recognized by Gartner* with the Cool Vendor 2017 seal for our ability to integrate the PAM solution with network and telecommunications automation tools.
In 2018 we were appointed as “visionary” in the Gartner PAM Magic Quadrant, recognized by Forrester as one of the world’s leading PIM solutions in its Forrester Wave report and KuppingerCole also pointed our solution as one of the most comprehensive on the market in its Leadership Compass: PAM 2018 report.
We strive to ensure the sovereignty of companies over actions and privileged information. To this end, we work against data theft through traceability of administrator actions on networks, servers, databases and a multitude of devices. In addition, we pursue compliance with auditing requirements and the most demanding standards, including PCI DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley, ISO 27001 and HIPAA.
*Gartner is an independent consulting company that provides evaluations of technology market solutions.
The password vault concept arrived in 2010, but the senhasegura brand emerged in 2013 through an MT4 Technology business unit division, which was then developed into a PAM solution.
MT4 is a Brazilian group founded in 2001 and made up of technology companies. Our focus is on developing not just a PAM solution, but also technologies related to information security, infrastructure automation and integration. Our mission is to create new technological applications that contribute to client development, generating innovation, efficiency and competitive advantages through applied technology. We also aim to support Brazil’s growth by generating relevant and innovative technological know-how.
Some factors that motivated and drove the emergence of senhasegura:
- Market demand for data protection, especially high privilege credentials;
- Lack of a national solution that meets local requirements;
- Development of national sovereignty in the cyber technology field;
- Growing demand for corporate governance based on regulations such as PCI DSS, ISO 27001 and Sarbanes-Oxley.
With these market factors in mind along with the strategic vision of the MT4 group, the first national PAM solution design was created in mid-2012, named senhasegura two years later.
The basic design for conceiving senhasegura took approximately two years, relying on the participation of many engineers and scholars. The purpose was to create a truly secure solution, capable of delivering a level of security equal to or greater than international competitors, and providing the user with a differentiated use and operation experience.
In all, it took more than 15,000 development and testing hours to reach the first version of the solution. Many challenges were overcome, from the assembly of robust appliances to the creation of secure storage mechanisms, using the most advanced cryptographic resources.
Development and research are constant to keep us at the market forefront, offering our clients an outstanding product. Today we have a team of dedicated engineers and more than 60,000 development and testing hours accumulated over 6 years.
The year 2014 was a turning point for the group: we attended a series of events in the security segment, leaving anonymity behind and gaining robust clients. We saw this as a sign that we were on the right path.
We believe in fulfilling our purpose of enhancing corporate security and protecting one the greatest assets: information. We also aim to develop 100% national technology.
