Pros
"The most valuable features are ease of use and enabling our clients to manage keys.""The most valuable feature is that you can retrieve user account details from the cloud.""The solution uses the encryption technique to store the secret information data that uses EPCE. There is also one feature that monitors Azure Key Vault.""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.""Azure Key Vault is very affordable, with charges of less than a dollar for over ten thousand keys.""The most valuable feature is the ability to store secrets securely and encrypt them. It is pretty easy and straightforward to use.""The best feature is the integrity of the .NET applications in our company.""It allows me to run applications using these certificates without directly installing them."

"We can use Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention to manage devices and site policies.""For Purview's natively integrated compliance across Azure, Dynamics 365, and Office 365, I would give it a 10 out of 10. It provides all the insights and information.""The auto-labeling feature is definitely the most valuable feature. It goes in and labels the documents for you in different repositories. It covers the Outlook and Exchange repositories along with SharePoint and OneDrive. It is really helpful in those areas.""The product can block the uploads to cloud services.""There's a good amount of documentation in case you run into any problems.""One of the valuable features of Purview is the ability to create a legal hold on a user's account within the compliance portal. That's pretty useful when it comes to any litigation or if you want to redeem the content within a mailbox, OneDrive, or a generic public SharePoint site.""The product has improved compliance and confidence. We are aware of the data that is leaving our organization. It provides confidence in data management and information storage.""I rate Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention's stability a ten out of ten."

Cons
"Currently, our company has to add the secrets manually, one by one, in Azure Key Vault, which is a tedious process.""The solution needs to improve its cost.""The slow response from the support team is one of the shortcomings of the solution that needs to be improved.""While it's very reliable in terms of stability, there's always room for improvement.""We've experienced issues with configuration.""To make it a ten the setup should be more streamlined.""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 →

"Technical support is awful.""The AI advancements can improve the false positives.""The support is poor.""The solution should provide better integration with other systems.""Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention's licensing is expensive.""The scalability, in terms of the portal, could be more user-friendly. Sometimes I have faced difficulties in identifying the options.""There is a lot of ambiguity when you are setting up labels, such as sensitive information labels. It is a little daunting at first if you don't have prior knowledge, and there is a little bit of a learning curve for setting up the labels. Some of the setup wizards could be more helpful from an AI perspective. They can streamline the setup through more AI technologies so that you don't have to jump through so many hoops and different menus and dropdowns. It would be useful to have a setup wizard that is more hands-off and engaging for setting up the information type labels. If you tell them this is what we're trying to protect, it should basically start to lead you down that path of best practices. Such a feature would be great.""They do not provide language options beyond the ones already available, so our language option is missing."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The cost of the Azure Key Vault is very high and the pricing model is based on the number of keys that you store and retrieve."
  • "The pricing is decent. It has a pretty low price. It is a straightforward cost based on usage."
  • "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."
  • "The price isn't high. Any sized organization could easily adopt it. The first 250 keys are available for $5 per month."
  • "The pricing is reasonable and flexible, especially for those already using Microsoft Azure Cloud services. There is a cost associated with retrieval and storage, which is a few dollars. Otherwise, the price can be customized according to requirements, such as how many keys need to be stored."
  • More Azure Key Vault Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It is a part of our Microsoft licensing. We pay for a yearly renewal. Its price is reasonable for the size of the organization we are. It is fairly competitive, and you get what you pay for. We have an E5 license, and a part of understanding the E5 license is to see what all you get with it. If you really look at it from that standpoint, you get a lot of value. You have Defender and all its security features in there as well. Their licensing is fairly flexible. They have different programs. We've seen ones where you could pay for up to three to five years in advance. There is also a monthly pay-as-you-go type of deal, but we're doing a yearly renewal and fixing the budget."
  • "Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention is part of a bundle and is not sold as a standalone product."
  • "The product has the best price-to-performance ratio."
  • "It's a little bit pricey compared to competitors, but it's not too high."
  • "We are using the E3 license for Microsoft 365 with the E5 compliance license add-on."
  • "The pricing is reasonable."
  • "I am satisfied with the tool's pricing."

    Overview

    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.”

    At Microsoft, our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. Our mission is grounded in both the world in which we live and the future we strive to create. Today, we live in a mobile-first, cloud-first world, and the transformation we are driving across our businesses is designed to enable Microsoft and our customers to thrive in this world.
