We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"A high level of security."
"The best feature is the integrity of the .NET applications in our company."
"It is a managed service in Azure, you do not have to worry about security other than managing your own identities."
"The most valuable features are ease of use and enabling our clients to manage keys."
"This solution speeds up the product development life cycle. That is, the time from the development of the product to the time to market is drastically reduced because of the CI/CD pipelines. You can have your code deployed within a matter of minutes."
"The security on offer seems to be quite good."
"We only use the basic features and those are the ones that have the ability to tie into the app, the secrets, and the passwords and encrypt them."
"All its features are really valuable. It's really well thought-out. It's a complete turnkey solution that has all the concerns taken care of, such as access control and management. You can use it in infrastructure as code to create key vaults, APIs, PowerShells, CLIs, even Terraform."
"Passportal is very stable."
"I like Passportal's extensions. You can click the particular company you want and go through all the passwords and usernames associated with that company or the specific webpage you're on or their server or whatever. It's a whole lot faster."
"The integration with Thales HSM is complex and is not out-of-the-box. Uploading the keys was quite a tedious process."
"It needs to offer dynamic secrets management."
"While the solution already does a great job of managing keys, the solution could probably look at maybe expanding more into mobile devices and endpoints."
"Azure has great documentation, but I would like to see more use cases pertaining to specific industries. For example, case studies on how to use HIPAA compliant solutions in the healthcare industry or how to use PCI compliant data analytics solutions in the financial technology industry would be helpful."
"Inability to access the solution on the phone."
"The initial setup could be less complex for first-time users."
"The big problem with Azure Key Vault is key rotation. We haven't found a good way to synchronize the credentials between the databases and Key Vault."
"I can see that other people are doing the infrastructure as code, they are able to easily manage and cycle their passwords as needed using their own interface they created. It would be nice if Microsoft provided more guidance in that area."
"In the future, I would like the ability to have diagrams, such as those created by Visio, available directly in Passportal."
"It goes down a little too often for me to recommend it to somebody else."
"The price of the solution is reasonable for what we are using it for."
"Pricing is quite reasonable and support is included, although premium support is available for an additional fee."
"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."
"The pricing is decent. It has a pretty low price. It is a straightforward cost based on usage."
"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."
"Azure is cheaper than CyberArk... CyberArk is good, but it's quite expensive."
"We pay the license fee monthly and the price is reasonable."
