"Great Product backed by Quality"

What do you like best?

What I like best was that it was a complete surprise to me! I was VERY lucky to have the Microsoft Azure Key Vault included in my package deal. To my complete surprise this is a cloud-hosted management service . This service allows the users to encrypt keys.and protected by hardware security modules.

What do you dislike?

I didnt know this hardware was available! I am not sure yet how I am going to use this product to my advantage other than data security at this point.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I know that Microsoft is always looking for ways to improve their products which always peaks my curiosity, I rely heavily on my Microsoft office suites a part of our day-to-day application as well as utilizing their cloud innovation.

"Password Security"

What do you like best?

The ability to keep my information private from others and stay clear of hack attacks or hack attempts. We also had some pretty sensitive data around our clients that we weren't able to store elsewhere.

What do you dislike?

It was only user friendly to myself and my colleagues, and I wasn't able to use this in my everyday personal life. I did have a good experience with customer service as they walked me through step by step on how to set this product up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a space to keep some pretty delicate information-- including passwords and access to spreadsheets with sensitive client data, and key vault was able to help us keep our information safe.

What Encryption Key Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great Software to Manage Applications"

What do you like best?

I have noticed that azure is widely used by different organizations. This is extremely helpful because if you are familiar with it, then you will be able to spend less time learning the UI and different tools. I really like that it is a widely used service. I like that I am able to use different virtual machines so that we can manager our servers. It is also really good at monitoring your applications and infrastrucure. Microsoft is also a big company so I entrust them with the high sensitive information and a service that our business relies on.

What do you dislike?

The cost can be a little high depending on the type of organization you have. It may not be as good for "smaller" businesses.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to securely and efficiently monitor our activity logs and configure our infrastructure. We also use the SQL database a little bit to run custom built applications to help solve inventory issues.
