Keeper vs Bitwarden: A Side-by-Side Comparison

Keeper vs Bitwarden: A Side-by-Side Comparison

Keeper Security and Bitwarden are password management solutions offering varying user features and benefits to their customers. Bitwarden is a good password manager with a password generator tool, autofill, two-factor authentication and more. Keeper is an enterprise solution that offers these same capabilities and more—combining a password manager with secrets management and connection management.

Bitwarden vs Keeper: Certifications and Capabilities 

Keeper offers additional features, certifications and capabilities that Bitwarden doesn’t. Check out some of the extra value that Keeper provides. 

Certifications 

Keeper is the longest standing SOC 2 and ISO 27001-certified password managers in the security industry. Our platform is also listed for use by the federal government through the System for Award Management (SAM). Keeper is the only password management tool currently available in the FedRAMP marketplace. Plus, our cryptography module has been certified and validated by the NIST Cryptographic Module Verification Program (CMVP) to the FIPS 140-2 standard. We are also compliant with the following:

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
  • ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations)

Bitwarden is also SOC 2 and ISO 27001-certified and compliant with HIPAA, GDPR and CCPA. However, it is currently not available in the FedRAMP Marketplace. 

SSO Integration 

Keeper’s online password manager integrates with all major single sign-on (SSO) identity providers (IdPs)—without needing a master password. Keeper SSO Connect is a 100% cloud-based SAML 2.0 service that seamlessly and quickly integrates with your existing SSO and passwordless solution, enhancing and extending it with zero-knowledge password management and encryption.

Bitwarden requires users to enter a master password when using an IdP solution.

Advanced Reporting and Alerts

Keeper provides visibility into password security and internal controls with robust reporting, logging alerts for 100+ event types (broken down by category) and SIEM integration to mitigate cyberthreats and maintain compliance standards. Keeper customers can also add BreachWatch, our dark web monitoring feature, and get notified if their login credentials appear on the dark web. Our detailed reports and alerting tools allow you to take action whenever suspicious activity occurs.

Bitwarden does offer vault health reports that provide limited information. It does not have commensurate reporting, notification and alert capabilities.

Customer Support

Keeper’s live support is available 24/7. Keeper also offers product training and onboarding with your subscription. 

New teams can easily access our documentation portal if they prefer to search for an answer online. Our portal contains guides and instructions to help you and your team learn more about your new password management solution and the features that come with it. For more information, check out our resource center for white papers, case studies, webinars and more. 

Bitwarden does offer a help center, but it does not have phone support or 24/7 live chat.

In addition to our cloud-based password manager, we offer solutions for secrets management and remote connection management. Bitwarden does not offer either service.
