Akeyless Vaultless Platform
Other Vaults


Akeyless Vaultless Platform

  • Our SaaS-based Secrets and Access Management platform allows organizations to start managing and securing credentials, certificates, and keys across hybrid multicloud workloads, upon first login.

  • The Akeyless Gateway provides an extra level of protection between private networks and the cloud. Our lightweight Docker container deploys with a few clicks and enables service continuity during network outages.

  • Includes out-of-the-box backup & recovery, replication, 99.99% availability, and multi-tenancy. 

Other Vaults

  • Cloud Service Providers offer proprietary secret management tools with limited to no functionality support for on-premise or multicloud environments

  • On-premise vaults are costly, require self-deployment, and have a cumbersome on-boarding experience for multi-cluster and multi-regional deployments.


Akeyless Vaultless Platform

  • The solution automatically scales for demand peaks across multiple regions and cloud platforms.

  • Automatically updates to provide the latest platform features and security updates. 

Other Vaults

  • Both legacy on-premise and PaaS-based vaults require continuous operational overhead to either self-maintain the underlying infrastructure (on-premise) or oversee software updates, backups and plan for scaling (PaaS). 


Akeyless Vaultless Platform

  • A unified platform with wide capabilities spanning secrets management and secure remote access, for both human and workload access scenarios.

  • Supports static secrets, dynamic secrets and provides automatic rotation of credentials for privileged accounts.

  • Eliminates the Secret Zero problem for legacy on-premise workloads. Akeyless Universal Identity provides a machine identity to secure the initial vault connection.

Other Vaults

  • Most open source and commercial tools only support static secrets storage and retrieval.

  • Other vaults lack privileged access management and secure remote access functionality. Therefore, they require the deployment of additional tools to compensate.

Ease of Use

Akeyless Vaultless Platform

  • Provides an enterprise-grade user interface to empower both new and power users with simplified workflows and centralized reporting across hybrid environments–all accessible from any location.

Other Vaults

  • Other vaults only focus on power users and CLI functionality, and lack an intuitive graphic interface for all enterprise users.


Akeyless Vaultless Platform

  • Built on Akeyless DFC, our patented, next-generation Zero Knowledge technology, which ensures customers have exclusive ownership of their master keys. Not even Akeyless can access and decrypt your keys.

Other Vaults

  • Cloud Service Provider’s vaults require organizations to share their master keys, which may allow rogue admins or government entities to access your data under the CLOUD act.


Akeyless Vaultless Platform

  • Mitigates costly infrastructure investments with simple, pay-as-you-go pricing. 

  • Reduces operational cost: as a SaaS solution, there is no infrastructure or software to procure, deploy and maintain.

Other Vaults

  • Requires expensive computing resources, engineering, deployment, and ongoing maintenance effort and costs.
