Vault for Secrets Management

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-12-14
Review Source: Capterra

Vault is a key part of a company's secret management. Without it we would have to pay for a managed service by a cloud provider.

Pros
Vault is a quick and easy way to securely store secrets for access by multiple users/teams. It provides a service which is highly configurable and open source.

Cons
As Vault is a key-value store masked as a file-traverser, it can sometimes be unclear in which directory a secret is stored.
