"The most valuable feature is usability, as it is quite user-friendly."
"The API is fine and works well."
"All our workloads are running on AWS, so integration with our workload is much easier on AWS Secrets Manager than going with another solution such as Thycotic."
"This solution is easy to use and to integrate."
"The most valuable feature of HashiCorp Vault is that it's an open source solution. Second, it's cloud agnostic, so it's very easy to maintain and control, which is why we prefer HashiCorp."
"It can still be configured by a separate team other than developers. That's why I think it's more secure."
"The interface is very simple to navigate."
"It would be good if the AWS Secrets Manager were more customizable."
"If you don't have enterprise support, then you will not be able to get through to them to get the help. It is not only applicable to AWS Secrets Manager. It is also applicable to any service on AWS."
"We occasionally have problems with rate limits, although that is a problem more generally with AWS."
"We could use more documentation, primarily to do with integrations."
"The technical support was hard to get a hold of and lacking in service."
"I don't think there are any major improvements required—so far, so good. However, I think that having more training materials, such as videos, and documentation available would be helpful. I would prefer to have more videos available either on the official site or on YouTube."
"The documentation is very general; it should have more examples and more use cases."
