The price of the solution is reasonable for what we are using it for.

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. You pay as you go, similar to other services in Azure.

The pricing is decent. It has a pretty low price. It is a straightforward cost based on usage.

You do need a special agreement in order to receive technical support. While I don't directly deal with pricing, my understanding is that it's okay, and not too expensive.

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. It is billed in blocks, such as 1,000 passwords that I can store. However, if I am paying to store information for 1,000 users then the pricing is not discounted if I only need to store 500.

Azure Key Vault is a SaaS solution. You can easily store passwords and secrets securely and encrypt them. Azure Key Vault is a great solution to ensure you are compliant with security and governance regulations. We like that with this solution you can retrieve your user account details from the cloud. Azure Key Vault is easily scalable. We found it easy to use and the GUI is very good too. Azure Key Vault would be more attractive if it would expand endpoints. The addition of mobile devices would be great. It would also be advantageous if Azure Key Vault had better integrations and offerings for companies of all sizes. AWS Secrets Manager is quick to deploy and does a great job. The UI is easy to use and provides a good group of APIs that works well with Java, Python, etc. With AWS Secrets Manager you can rotate secrets safely without code deployments. The solution offers pay-as-you-go pricing. You can easily replicate secrets in multiple AWS regions to support your applications and disaster recovery scenarios. You need to have advanced enterprise support to get the quality assistance you need to handle issues. We would like to see AWS Secrets Manager with more customizable options; currently, it can be very cumbersome. If you are not in the AWS ecosystem, AWS Secrets Manager may not be a good fit for you. Conclusion: AWS Secrets Manager offers flexible pay-as-you-go pricing, but as a whole is a somewhat clunky solution. It is most effective in the AWS ecosystem. Azure Key Vault is very well thought-out and easy to use. We found it to be extremely secure. We like that it is Microsoft-backed and feel that it offers the best processes for encryption and ciphering of keys. As we are heavily committed to the Microsoft ecosystem, Azure Key Vault is a great fit for our organization.

I work at a large enterprise financial services firm. If I use Microsoft Azure Key Vault as a password vault to manage connections (authentication configs) to on premises systems (mostly database servers), can it be replaced with CyberArk or its Azure plugin/feature (if it exists)?
