Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The interface is very simple to navigate.""The solution is stable. It has been working perfectly without any problem.""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.""We were using it because we have compliance requirements around secret management. Having a secure vault and encrypting data was an additional requirement. When we looked at it first, we were just looking for a vault, like a lockbox. The greatest benefit of HashiCorp is its ability to manage encryption on the fly. It provides encryption of data at rest, in use, in transit, on the fly, and linked with applications, which was really attractive."

Cons
"In terms of features, the only thing that I found a little bit hinky was that there was no revocation or deletion on the model we were using. Once in a financial year, a client interacts, and you pay for that client for the year. So, there are just little things like that in the pricing. There should be more clarity around the end of the key. I know there is no system like this. They all are the same. I tested Microsoft, Google, and some others, and none of them really want you to delete a key, which makes sense. You delete a key, and you lose everything that it has wrapped or encrypted, but it's actually just a language. Deletion isn't really deletion. It's really revocation, but overall, HashiCorp Vault ticked all the boxes for us, and I couldn't fault it.""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 solution could be much easier to implement.""We could use more documentation, primarily to do with integrations."

"Its user interface should be better, and there should probably be more information about scalability.""I struggle a little bit with the mobile app. As a browser extension, it works really well, and we are able to get to what we need to. However, on the phone, it's not quite as easy to navigate."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The AWS version is much cheaper than HashiCorp Vault."
  • "It could do everything we wanted it to do and it is brilliant, but it is super pricey. To be fair to HashiCorp, we drove the price up with our requirements around resiliency. Because of the nature of our company, we don't really operate in the cloud."

  • "I was not terribly alarmed with the pricing, and am pleased with the fact that a home license is included with each business license."

    Overview

    HashiCorp Vault is an encryption and secrets management system that is identity-based. When there is a portion of data that an organization wants to maintain confidentiality and control securely, it is considered a “secret.” These include such data as certificates, API encryption keys, passwords, and more. HashiCorp Vault creates complex encryption processes that are secured by additional authorization and authentication protocols. The solution will provide comprehensive restricted access to secrets and other confidential data via HashiCorp Vault’s HTTP API, CLI, or UI. The data is auditable and is stored securely.

    Today’s organizations depend upon a plethora of secrets to function effectively. It is therefore imperative that organizations securely control who has access to secrets and other data. HashiCorp Vault is a custom solution that can make the challenging process of securing even the most platform-specific storage easier, and adds detailed audit logs to lock it all down and keep the data safe.

    HashiCorp Vault Features

    • Data encryption: The solution is capable of encrypting and decrypting data, and will not store it. Organizations’ security personnel define their own encryption protocols; developers can store the encrypted data where they choose and are not obligated to design specific encryption processes.

    • Robust secrets: For systems such as AWS or SQL databases, Vault is able to generate secrets automatically. HashiCorp Vault is able to generate AWS keypairs with all the appropriate permissions when necessary, and when the approved time expires, will nullify them.

    • Secure secret storage: Any type of value or key secrets can be stored in the Vault. The Vault automatically encrypts the desired secrets before recording them into persistent storage, keeping them safe and secure. Users can record data using HCP Vault’s Consul service or disk, or choose from other options.

    • Nullification: Vault is able to nullify single secrets or all secrets from a particular group or specific user. This process is integral in securing systems in the event of an attack or inappropriate access.

    Reviews from Real Users

    The greatest benefit of HashiCorp is its ability to manage encryption on the fly. It provides encryption of data at rest, in use, in transit, on the fly, and linked with applications, which was really attractive. The lifecycle of a key is so easy to manage in terms of rotating, revoking, and issuing. They have different auth methods, and I tried all different auth methods. It is seamless.”- Project Manager at a comms service provider.
