Dashlane
It is well suited in org where password protection is mandatory. Most companies need it hence as the service you're providing needs to have a secure vault and this is where dashlane comes in picture. Also great as a authenticator app. Even has VPN for those that need. It is less suited for personal projects.

HashiCorp Vault, in my opinion, is a defacto standard for any cloud or automation implementation. They're the best of the best as far as products for secrets management and the ability to use it against relatively any service you have is unheard of for other products. HashiCorp has really taken out all the stops when it comes to creating a nice, extensible tool that people can use to suit their needs.

Pros
Dashlane
  • Their Secure Notes are an easy and great way to save and protect important data and notes not specifically password-related.
  • I really like their Payments feature. I've used that at my desk and when traveling to fill-in payment information on the fly.
  • I've recently begun using Dashlane with PassKeys and found the process to be simple and intuitive to use.

  • The HTTP API you use to write and read secrets is open and can be used by any application.
  • It keeps our sensitive data/credentials out of our GitLab repositories.
  • Sealing and unsealing the Vault on demand adds an additional layer of security.

Cons
Dashlane
  • Dashlane can be frustrating to use on my Mac. There are often times where the app is open but simply will not display the dashboard. I am forced to close the app and relaunch it to gain access. Support has been unable to fix this for me.
  • There are times where Dashlane tries to interact with a web form that it should not interact with. It feels like it is getting in the way and hindering the form completion rather than helping with efficiency. Better detection of form types would be a big improvement.
  • Refining the way that Dashlane deals with replacement/updating passwords would be a welcome improvement. It is very easy to get duplicate entries into the system so that you have 2 or more logins to a website to choose from even though only one of them is current.

  • Documentation could be better.
  • The multiple key unseal process can be a problem if the need arises.
  • It would make more sense if HashiCorp Vault combined with HashiCorp Consul to create a unique product.

It has served us very well until now and at the pricepoint it doesn't make us second guess our current relationship.

HashiCorp Vault is the best there is out there, and it has become critical to our secret management use cases. It would be difficult to find anything that would suit our needs better and that would be beneficial for us to switch over to.

Usability
Dashlane
While Dashlane has some very useful features, the interface has never left me with the feeling that it was extremely intuitive or advanced. I have also often struggled when creating or allowing access to new passwords or accounts and having others be able to see or be able to access them without getting on a call or chat to get it configured correctly.

We spent a little more time than we imagined to conceptually understand how HashiCorp Vault operates, as well as how it is configured. This is not trivial, and keep in mind that you will need to take some time to get a thorough understanding of the tool. The documentation could be more helpful in this regard.

Dashlane
We've had no issues with Dashlane. I can't speak to their customer service because I have not personally needed to contact them. I guess that speaks about their product if we've not had any issues to reach out about. Great for supporting data/information on multiple platforms that are shared among team members.

Hashicorp has been very responsive to our questions and inquiries up to this point. We are currently working on them to develop a more granular permissions model within Vault. We are very close to achieving our objectives with the help of their support team. We do not seem to be in the same time zone which makes it hard for escalated issues.

Dashlane
Dashlane loses against 1Password in almost every way. The only aspect that is better for Dashlane is the ability to share with your organization as it will pre-populate a list of users.
I didn't select Dashlane, it was selected for me. If it was up to me, I would choose 1Password over Dashlane all the time.

HashiCorp Vault is way better than Azure Key Vault; it has more features and it goes beyond a key-value secret store.

Return on Investment
Dashlane
  • Password policy enforcement
  • Better security since it handles all 2FA for each login we enable them
  • Productivity went up since 2FA is automatically filled by the app, so people don't need to complain about the hassle to input the 6-digit code

  • Helped us reach our security compliance goals.
  • Helped us strengthen our security position in our infrastructure by improving on poor secret management practices.
