HashiCorp released HashiCorp Vault 0.8 with updates to both the open source and enterprise versions, including new plugins, disaster recovery, mount filtered replication capabilities, and multi-factor authentication (MFA).

“The previous release of Vault Enterprise introduced multi-datacenter replication, which has enabled many of our enterprise customers to adopt or expand their usage of Vault. The new release makes the multi-datacenter capability richer and adds disaster recovery replication for the most mission-critical use cases,” said Armon Dadgar, co-founder and CTO of HashiCorp. “Additionally, we have added a secure plugin mechanism which allows users and customers to innovate on top of Vault and build on the secure foundation it provides.”

Vault Enterprise 0.8 comes with disaster recovery, mount filtered replication, and MFA. The open source version includes secure plugins. More information can be found here.
