Key Vault Pricing

Safeguard cryptographic keys and other secrets used by cloud apps and services

Azure Key Vault enables Azure subscribers to safeguard and control cryptographic keys and other secrets used by cloud apps and services.

  • Encrypt keys and small secrets like passwords using keys in Hardware Security Modules (HSMs).
  • Import or generate your keys in HSMs certified to FIPS 140-2 level 2 standards for added assurance, so that your keys stay within the HSM boundary.
  • Simplify and automate tasks for SSL/TLS certificates, enrol and automatically renew certificates from supported public certification authorities (CA).
  • Provision and deploy new Vaults and Keys in minutes without waiting for procurement, hardware or IT and centrally manage keys, secrets and policies.
  • Maintain control over encrypted data – grant and revoke key use by your own and third-party applications as needed.
  • Segregate key management duties to enable developers to easily manage keys used for dev/test and migrate seamlessly to production keys managed by security operations.
  • Rapidly scale to meet the cryptographic needs of your cloud applications and match peak demand.
  • Achieve global redundancy by provisioning Vaults in Azure data centres worldwide and keep a copy in your own Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) for added durability.

Azure Key Vault is offered in two service tiers: Standard and Premium.

Premium Standard
Secrets and Software-protected keys $-/10,000 operations $-/10,000 operations
