I have solved multiple use-cases using AKV (Azure Key Vault) working as a Cloud architect for multiple enterprise projects.
For starters , it is very easy to integrated with ADE / Azure Disk Encryption.
I have used it in small clients as an encryption as a service tool , to get encrypted output from AKV to use in front end applications / to store passwords and so on.
Also , I have used it in an enterprise project to create a secret wrapper SaaS tool for API tokens , using envelope encryption , where the API key/token was encrypted using a AKV data key , which itself was encrypted using AKV master key .
We have also leveraged it at length for business facing use-cases , where a managed identity was provided access to specific keys/secrets stored in the AKV.
AKV is a key tool to keep in your pocket for any type of secret management use-cases . It can seamlessly integrate with a wide range of Azure services , so in case you are an Azure shop , then AKV is the one stop toolkit for all your enterprise secret handling needs.
Also for users migrating from AWS to Azure , if the AWS designs involved KMS , then they can seamlessly try to incorporate AKV in their Azure solution , in place of KMS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
