Acra vs Azure Key Vault: What are the differences?

Developers describe Acra as "Backend security system for SaaS and microservices, with strong encryption and intrusion detection". It provides data protection in distributed applications, web and mobile apps with PostgreSQL, MySQL, KV backends through selective encryption. On the other hand, Azure Key Vault is detailed as "Safeguard cryptographic keys and other secrets used by cloud apps and services". Secure key management is essential to protect data in the cloud. Use Azure Key Vault to encrypt keys and small secrets like passwords that use keys stored in hardware security modules (HSMs). For more assurance, import or generate keys in HSMs, and Microsoft processes your keys in FIPS 140-2 Level 2 validated HSMs (hardware and firmware). With Key Vault, Microsoft doesn’t see or extract your keys. Monitor and audit your key use with Azure logging—pipe logs into Azure HDInsight or your security information and event management (SIEM) solution for more analysis and threat detection.

Acra and Azure Key Vault can be categorized as "Data Security Services" tools.

Some of the features offered by Acra are:

  • Cryptographic protection of data
  • Encryption
  • Intrusion detection

On the other hand, Azure Key Vault provides the following key features:

  • Increase security and control over keys and passwords
  • Create and import encryption keys in minutes
  • Applications have no direct access to keys
