"Technical support is helpful.""The solution can scale up as needed.""The security on offer seems to be quite good.""Among the features that have helped improve our security posture are storing secrets in a secure location to create a trusted situation, trusted resources, and incorporating identity access management so that we know who has access to what.""It stores sensitive information in an encrypted way. We don't have to worry about data loss or data theft because no one can see our information.""The GUI was quite easy for me to use.""The most valuable feature is the ability to store secrets securely and encrypt them.

"I really like the zero trust piece.""The most valuable feature of this solution is that it provides us with a secure way of managing passwords.""The solution's stability is flawless."

More Delinea Password Reset Server Pros →

"It needs to offer dynamic secrets management.""Microsoft Azure Key Vault could improve by enhancing the security of credentials. Without the security or the use of key vaults, we would have to configure our credentials into the source code as plain text without the encryption or security.""The big problem with Azure Key Vault is key rotation. We haven't found a good way to synchronize the credentials between the databases and Key Vault.""The integration with Thales HSM is complex and is not out-of-the-box. Uploading the keys was quite a tedious process.""To make it a ten the setup should be more streamlined.""The solution does not allow you to integrate with XML parties if it is not inside Azure itself.""I can see that other people are doing the infrastructure as code, they are able to easily manage and cycle their passwords as needed using their own interface they created. It would be nice if Microsoft provided more guidance in that area.""The initial setup could be less complex for first-time users."

More Azure Key Vault Cons →

"The initial setup and deployment can be cumbersome.""As I am partial to CyberArk, I rate Thycotic Password Reset Server as a nine out of ten, owing to the minor glitches I mentioned.""I would like to see improvement with the integration with Azure Active Directory. This would mean that we can have support on multiple platforms such as Windows, Linux, and Mac."

  • "Pricing is quite reasonable and support is included, although premium support is available for an additional fee."
  • "Key Vault, like every Azure service, has a cost associated with it, but you don't have to spend thousands of dollars to spin up an environment to build a key management system. It's already there."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable for what we are using it for."
  • "Azure is cheaper than CyberArk... CyberArk is good, but it's quite expensive."

    Microsoft Azure Key Vault is a cloud-based data security and storage service that allows users to keep their secrets safe from bad actors.

    Benefits of Microsoft Azure Key Vault

    Some of the benefits of using Microsoft Azure Key Vault include:

    • Secure your secrets in a single central location, enabling you to control how your information is disseminated.
    • Keep your data away from bad actors. Application administrators can store their application’s security information away from the actual application. Microsoft Azure Key Vault reduces the chance that a bad actor will be able to leak an application’s secrets. Because the data is not stored in the code of the application, hackers will be unable to steal the security information.
    • Retrieve your information securely. When the information is needed, the application can securely retrieve it by using a uniform resource identifier (URI) to connect to Microsoft Azure Key Vault.
    • Securely store your digital keys and secrets. Microsoft Azure Key Vault stores data behind layers of security protocol. No one can access the information stored in a Microsoft Azure Key Vault without first obtaining the necessary authentication and authorization. The authentication process allows the system to figure out who is trying to access the vault in question. This process is performed by Azure’s Active Directory. After the person or entity is authenticated, Microsoft Azure Key Vault then assigns them a level of authorization. This determines what sort of actions they will be able to perform.
    • Choose from two different authorization options. The level of a user’s authorization can be either role-based or dictated by a policy that the administrator sets. Azure’s role-based access control (Azure RBAC) enables users to both manage and access stored data. A key vault access policy limits users to data access.
    • Secure your data in the way that best fits your needs. Your data can be protected by either industry-standard algorithm software or hardware security modules (HSMs). Your data is even safe from Microsoft, as the vaults are designed so that not even Microsoft can get in and access the information.
    • Easily monitor who accesses your vault(s). Microsoft Azure Key Vault enables administrators to keep a close eye on their secrets. Users can activate a vault-logging feature that will track every piece of information. It will record who accessed the vault, when they accessed it, and other pertinent details.
    • Choose how you want to store your logs. Users can store logs in multiple ways. These logs can be archived, sent to the Azure monitor logs area, or streamed to an events hub. The logs can be secured to prevent unauthorized viewing and deleted when they are no longer needed.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Microsoft Azure Key Vault stands out among their competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are the overall robustness of the solution and its ability to protect and manage many different digital asset types. The many features that the solution offers allows users to tailor their experience to meet their specific needs. Its flexibility enables users to accomplish a wide variety of security and identity management related tasks. It empowers users to secure a wide array of assets. Users can keep many different types of secrets away from bad actors.

    A cloud architect at a marketing services firm writes, “All its features are really valuable. It's really well thought-out. It's a complete turnkey solution that has all the concerns taken care of, such as access control and management. You can use it in infrastructure as code to create key vaults, APIs, PowerShells, CLIs, even Terraform. You can also use it in different services across the board. If you have app services, or virtual machines, Kubernetes, or Databricks, they can all use Key Vault effectively. In my opinion, in a DevSecOps, DevOps, or even in a modern Azure implementation, you have to use Azure Key Vault to make sure you're addressing security and identity management concerns. By "identity" I mean usernames, passwords, cryptography, etcetera. It's a full-blown solution and it supports most breeds of key management: how you store keys and certify.”

    Roger L., the managing director of Cybersecurity Architecture at Peloton Systems, says, “The most valuable aspect of the product is its ability to keep our admin password accounts for keys and a lot of our high-value assets. It can manage those types of assets. So far, the product does a great job of managing keys.”

    Delinea Password Reset Server simplifies end-user password management. By allowing employees to reset their forgotten Active Directory passwords directly from the web portal or Windows login screen, Password Reset Server can drastically cut help desk calls, reduce costs, and improve staff productivity.

    Calls to the help desk for password resets can reach up to 50%. Password Reset Server automates Active Directory password resets to free up IT help desk staff from time-consuming, inefficient processes and gets employees back to work.
