"The ability to give some groups access to different kind of databases with the storage of a password is the most valuable feature.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the random changing of passwords.""Provides us with the ability to control access [to secrets] by groups.""It offers the possibility of secure administration of hardware devices, as well as Linux systems administration from a Windows environment.""Ease of use because of its monolithic software.""The most valuable feature is session monitoring.""The user interface is quite good. It's very straightforward.""I find it really easy and computer confident, and the experience with the product is really good. Additionally, customizations are easy."

Cons
"A drawback for some clients who have to be PCI compliant is that they still need to use and subscribe to an HSM (Hardware Security Module) solution.""The documentation is very general; it should have more examples and more use cases."

"I don't know what kind of a cryptographic it uses to encrypt the password but it should be one of the stronger ones. Some of the cryptos have been accessed by hackers.""We could definitely use some help with API tokenization. If we had a way to store tokens that would be fabulous.""One of the things that we want is to be able to do some of the management of it using APIs.""I would like to see the shadowing of ongoing terminal sessions (Remote Desktop Mirroring).""Documentation could be improved if they were to include more about connectors. There is not enough documentation.""Having more detailed reporting would improve this solution.""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.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I am using the open-source version of Vault and I would have to buy a license if I want to get support."

More HashiCorp Vault Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It isn't terribly expensive.""The price of this solution is good.""Pricing is comparable to competing products.""The pricing is standard in this business and we have no complaints about it.""Its price is okay. We don't compete on pricing. We seldom use price to win over our competitors. We prefer it this way because if we can sustain the price, we make more margin as well. We don't want the price to go down to the bottom where despite the win, there's no margin at all.""Secret Server is expensive when compared to the cost to some alternatives.""There are different plans and additional licensing costs that can be instituted for add-ons."
