Keeper Security, the leading provider of zero-trust and zero-knowledge cybersecurity software protecting passwords, privileged access, secrets and remote connections, today announces a series of significant new User Interface (UI) updates to its password management platform for a friendlier and more intuitive experience. Keeper's upgraded user interface offers clearer distinctions between elements, as well as enhanced clarity and searchability, to improve the user experience and make it even easier to take advantage of Keeper's powerful features.
"Our customers' satisfaction with their user experience is a priority for us. We are fanatical about creating solutions that are as user-friendly as they are secure" said Keeper CEO and Co-Founder, Darren Guccione. "At Keeper, our design and product teams are constantly working to modernize Keeper's cybersecurity products which ultimately unifies ease-of-use and world-class security."
Keeper customers can expect an updated experience with this overhaul of the vault's user interface – offering a fresh, updated look with modern styling for a welcoming and streamlined appeal. Highlights to the updated UI include:
Friendlier Interface: Keeper's streamlined UI will reduce grid lines and introduce cleaner colors and adjustable panes.
Streamlined Usability: More efficient user workflows will reduce the number of clicks necessary to complete a task.
Accessibility and Inclusion: Upgraded UI will provide colors, contrast and font/icon sizes compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) standards.
Advanced Search: New, easy-to-use filters will enable users to search their Keeper Vaults with the utmost flexibility.
Onboarding: The new onboarding wizard provides a more welcoming guided experience to setting up a user's vault.
Lost Records: Keeper will now show the shared folder name and record contents of all records that are deleted out of shared folders.
When customers log into Keeper, they will immediately notice a refreshed Web and Desktop Vault featuring the new, modern UI. Animated record and folder details are displayed for better clarity, legibility and modern style, and users will be able to customize their individual colors. Users can now enjoy improved vault organization with modern interface elements such as modals, popups and dialogs – all improved to be equally functional and stylish. The interface will also display avatars with initials to allow teammates to quickly identify contacts when sharing records and folders.
As Keeper expands into larger markets, the number of folders and records in enterprise vaults has increased exponentially, with some customers having tens of thousands of record counts. To address this, Keeper will now offer advanced search capabilities to quickly pinpoint data in the vault. This search function will allow users to specify one or more search operators that can be used in combination to locate folders and records – while also allowing for granular searches that include specific values in specific record fields. Meanwhile, the brand new Keeper Quick Search feature will show recently viewed items and provide lightning fast results.
Also coming soon for Keeper's users is a new fixed-sized browser extension, which will stay consistent from screen to screen, and replicate the Web Vault improvements on mobile devices. The browser extension provides a more spacious design, easier identification of key fields, useful settings and features with easy-to-find logos, and simple navigation with new layouts.
For mobile apps, the new UI will feature friendly elements that are easier to read and navigate on smaller screens. For iOS, Keeper users will benefit from performance improvements, faster speeds and enhanced search results to easily find folders and their contents – even with tens of thousands of records. Android users will see cleaner themes with a new default Light Mode and revamped user-selected themes to match Keeper's UI enhancements. Additional features include a navigation bar for quick access to important screens on the app and frictionless Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) login.
Keeper is taking an incremental approach to improving the user experience, continuously enhancing the look, feel and usability of its applications, while staying mindful of the importance of familiarity, consistency and the world-class functionality and security that Keeper users are accustomed to.

Implementing service virtualization for financial software testing is especially important in today's competitive landscape where failing to deliver high-quality applications can result in lost business.
Cox Automotive offers a variety of financial services for the automotive industry, including Dealertrack, which handles retail transactions for vehicle financing and contracting.
"Virtualization was the best thing that could happen to us in the way that it enables us to test the right thing at the right time. We already had many automation tools and could have some ability to mimic component behavior, but it wasn't what we needed. We needed our virtualization services fast, because our problem was here and now, right in our lap," said Roya Montazeri.
The Parasoft Continuous Quality Platform supports the end-to-end testing needs of many industries, including financial services, and provides superior mocking of APIs and virtualizing of a broad range of message behaviors. In The Forrester Wave™: Continuous Automation Testing Platforms, Q4 2022 report, Parasoft was named a leader for the creation and execution of API tests integrated with service virtualization.
Forrester Vice President and Principal Analyst Diego Lo Giudice wrote, "Organizations from any market can partner with Parasoft, but technical scientific and high-compliance markets will find the ideal platform for their use cases. Parasoft is already present in these markets and in the large-logo financial technology market."

Cloudbrink today announced that it signed a global reseller agreement with NEC Networks & System Integration Corporation (NESIC).
NESIC will have exclusive rights in Japan to the Hybrid Access as a Service (HAaaS) platform, which provides fast, secure access to cloud and data center applications for hybrid workers.
NESIC has a commanding position in the Japanese market, where it is a leading reseller of Zoom. Accelerating videoconferencing applications for remote/hybrid workers is one of the major use cases for Cloudbrink.
The deal with NESIC follows extensive testing across multiple applications including collaboration tools, file transfer and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
Osamu Kikuchi, senior vice president NEC Networks & System Integration, said: “Productivity and security are the twin challenges faced by our customers in the hybrid working era. In tests, the Cloudbrink service demonstrated significantly enhanced performance for SaaS applications, particularly in environments where network connections were less reliable, such as for users working remotely from home or on business trips. With the Cloudbrink app, NESIC can optimize the network for our customers wherever they are, without compromising on security and without the need for additional hardware.”
Prakash Mana, chief executive and co-founder of Cloudbrink, said: “We’re delighted to be working with one of the world’s most successful companies. Our approach is all about making sure that the experience users have had for more than a decade in the office can follow them wherever their work takes them. Until now IT departments have struggled to keep remote users secure, as well as having to deal with networking issues they often couldn’t solve. The deal with NESIC testifies that we’ve successfully addressed both of these issues.”
The Cloudbrink service comprises an app and a global network of virtual PoPs called FAST edges to overcome packet loss, latency and other problems at the edge of the network, together with high-performance ZTNA and Moving Target Defense (MTD) for enterprise-grade security. Cloudbrink also provides a connector for secure, low-latency access to data center applications.
Cloudbrink brings the industry’s first highest-performance connectivity to the modern hybrid workforce anywhere in the world. The company uses AI and ML to provide edge-native hybrid access as a service (HAaaS). HAaaS delivers accelerated performance for cloud, SaaS, and data center applications.
