HashiCorp Vault VS Akeyless Vault Platform (2023)


Since we provide a variety of secrets management solutions,
we’re frequently asked about the differences between HashiCorp Vault and Akeyless Vault platform – so here it is!

We made a comparison sheet including more than 10 criteria:
Platform; technology; infrastructures; maintenance; required skills; security aspects; high availability (HA) ; user interface (UI) ; Multi-cloud; supporting offline environments, pricing / total cost of ownership (TCO) and more!

We compared 4 editions:

  1. HashiCorp Vault Open-source (OSS)
  2. HashiCorp Vault Enterprise
  3. HCP Vault (HashiCorp Vault Cloud / SaaS)
  4. Akeyless Vault platform

We’ve recently made a spreadsheet that easily gives you see all the features in the products, in detail, and by Editions (so you can use filters  and see for example what features are are only in Enterprise editions; what features are not in a certain edition etc.) .
You can email us (secrets@almtoolbox.com) and get that spreadsheet.

We used the following sources: hashicorp.com, akeyless.io and our accumulated knowledge
