Microsoft Azure Key Vault Primary Use Case

SK
Cloud Architect at a marketing services firm with 11-50 employees

I have used the solution on a couple of projects for a client, mainly for storing credentials and secrets, such as API keys and application or username passwords into the vault, as well as certificates. 

It is used for anything we need to keep safe and secure and not have users access, except via applications that programmatically access Key Vault and retrieve the secrets and connect to other APIs. That way, we don't supply usernames and passwords within application code or to people. We vault them in Key Vault and those secrets can be used within an application without human intervention.

Azure Key Vault is a SaaS solution.

Currently, we're looking at how we're going to use it in our dev environment. We actually have another product that we're using. We're going to test out those keys for maintaining our secrets, however, we first have them in our dev and test environment before we roll it out, as another protection area.

Co Founder & CTO at a manufacturing company with 1-10 employees

I am a system architect and this is one of the products that I work with when designing systems for our customers. This key vault allows you to store passwords and secret keys so that you can retrieve them when needed. Each customer will have their own secret password that can be used in a cloud-based scenario to retrieve their login usernames, passwords, and other secrets.
