Is it safe to store passwords in the Discovery Manager?

vScope uses credentials to log in to various components of your datacenter. The benefit is that no agents are needed, which is cost-efficient, safe and fast. All passwords are treated carefully to ensure highest security at all times.

  • Only vScope-Admins can view the Discovery Manager
  • When entering credentials, the password is never displayed – not even to Admins
  • Credentials are encrypted and stored in the vScope backend on the vScope server, on premise
  • Passwords must be re-entered e.g. to login on a server via RDP
  • Passwords cannot be retrieved from the API
  • vScope is read-only and will not perform any actions or write anything to the environment except for on the vScope-server itself
