Azure Key Vault vs F5: What are the differences?
Azure Key Vault: 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; F5: Secure application delivery. It powers apps from development through their entire life cycle, so our customers can deliver differentiated, high-performing, and secure digital experiences.
Azure Key Vault and F5 can be categorized as "Data Security Services" tools.
