"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."
"This solution is easy to use and to integrate."
"The interface is very simple to navigate."
"The solution is stable. It has been working perfectly without any problem."
"It can still be configured by a separate team other than developers. That's why I think it's more secure."
"Technical support is pretty good."
"I have found most valuable the automatic scheduled password rotation and remote desktop monitoring. Additionally, the documentation is readily available and easy to find and the dashboard is straightforward."
"The most valuable feature is session monitoring."
"The user interface is quite good. It's very straightforward."
"The discovery engine is really robust and flexible. It had some session management features that are better compared to some other vendors. Overall the GUI is very good and straightforward to operate compared to other solutions. For example, CyberArk and Hitachi tend to be hard to navigate."
"There has been no downtime this year."
"I have found the password management and the secret management features to be the most valuable. Our customers find its ease of integration and the use of power shells really attractive."
"What I like best about this product is the interface."
"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."
"The technical support was hard to get a hold of and lacking in service."
"We could use more documentation, primarily to do with integrations."
"The documentation is very general; it should have more examples and more use cases."
"In terms of what could be improved, the whole thing with distributed engines, et cetera, is a little bit tricky."
"I think that the main interface should integrate better with non-standard applications and clients, to connect with other systems."
"The initial setup and deployment can be cumbersome. It's not an easy process."
"This product is excellent in every way except minor details in handling extremely large environments."
"There could be tweaks here and there. For example, instead of going to one main function to do this and another main function to do that, the solution could remap the user interface so that a person only has to go through one function. The way that function branches off should make a bit more sense."
"One thing that I wish they would do is to have a Kubernetes or container-based deployment supported, but they're not quite there yet. Containerization or support for containerization would be fantastic."
"There are some things that I know are really important to include like A/B version features which are available in Windows. I would say that they should be included in the road map."
"Improvements are needed in session management, behavioral analytics, and the reporting segment."
