Cons
"Inability to access the solution on the phone.""Azure needs to provide versions of Key Vault that are suitable for different sizes of companies.""The initial setup could be less complex for first-time users.""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.""It needs to offer dynamic secrets management.""I would like more code examples.""The integration with Thales HSM is complex and is not out-of-the-box. Uploading the keys was quite a tedious process."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""The pricing is decent. It has a pretty low price. It is a straightforward cost based on usage.""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 price of the solution is reasonable for what we are using it for."
