Keeper combines the best of on-prem and cloud|
Keeper is quick and easy to implement, highly secure and intuitive. All of Keeper’s user-facing applications perform encryption on-device, with all the usability benefits of a cloud-based platform. That gives IT admins complete control over the private keys and the physical access to records stored in the vault. Admins may restrict platforms, locations and control every aspect of the usage model.
The cloud component of Keeper’s product is purely for the synchronisation of encrypted data and access controls.
Keeper’s user experience is top-notch with one-click sign-ins, quick import tools, dark/light modes and several accessibility options.
Bitwarden’s self-hosted options are time-consuming and difficult to use. Setting up and maintaining the necessary infrastructure, including servers, databases and security measures, require advanced technical knowledge and expertise.
Bitwarden’s user interface isn't nearly as intuitive. Importing passwords from a browser or another password manager is tricky, sharing and syncing password vaults with other users is complicated, and auto-save and auto-fill can be clunky.
Keeper is the most certified, tested and audited password manager||
Keeper holds the longest-standing SOC 2 attestation and ISO 27001 certification in the industry. Keeper is FedRAMP and StateRAMP Authorised.
Keeper utilises cryptography that has been certified and validated by the NIST Cryptographic Module Verification Program (CMVP) to the FIPS 140-2 standard.
Keeper utilises Amazon AWS in multiple geographic locations and regions (US, Canada, Japan, Australia, EU and GovCloud), providing customers with the fastest and safest cloud storage. Data at rest and in transit is fully isolated in the customer's preferred global data center.
Keeper implements a multi-layered encryption system. Record-level keys and Folder-level keys are generated on the local device which encrypts each stored vault record (e.g. password). For example, if you have 10,000 records in your vault, you also have 10,000 AES Record Keys protecting the data.
Bitwarden is not FedRAMP or StateRAMP Authorised
The Bitwarden platform has not performed any FIPS certifications at this time.
Bitwarden cloud is currently hosted on Microsoft Azure and only in the United States.
Bitwarden does not natively support encryption at the folder level. Bitwarden primarily focuses on encrypting individual records or items within the password manager.
|Keeper’s Seamless SSO Means No Master Password Is Required||
Using Keeper with Single Sign-On (SSO) does not require a master password – 256-bit Elliptic Curve keys are used for encryption.
Keeper integrates with SAML 2.0 identity providers including Azure, Okta, Ping and hundreds of others.
Keeper holds 11 US utility patents on zero-knowledge SSO for password vault integration and other related technology.
Bitwarden requires a master password for SSO.
Bitwarden does have SAML integration, but not natively. The Bitwarden SAML integrations require multiple steps on the admin and user profiles.
|Keeper Provides Next-Generation Privileged Access Management|
KeeperPAM delivers enterprise-grade password, passkey, secrets and privileged connection management in a single, unified platform.
Keeper’s Advanced Reporting and Alerts Module (ARAM) has over 200 trackable events, with the ability to generate highly customisable reports and send near real-time alerts.
Keeper Connection Manager (KCM) is a secure and streamlined remote access solution for managing infrastructure and remote work environments.
Keeper Secrets Manager (KSM) enables organisations to rotate credentials on a fixed schedule or on demand via an intuitive and easy-to-deploy platform.
Bitwarden does not provide many critical components of privileged access management.
Bitwarden has a much smaller number of events (~60) and has no alerting capability.
Bitwarden does not offer secure remote connection management.
Bitwarden’s secrets management tool does not support automated credential rotation.
Dark Web Monitoring|
Keeper's BreachWatch® is a powerful, secure tool that constantly scans users’ Keeper Vaults for exposed credentials on the dark web. The solution immediately notifies you to take action and secure your organisation if login information is discovered.
Bitwarden offers health reports for reused or weak passwords. They do not offer a feature similar to Keeper’s BreachWatch and instead, Bitwarden sends customer-hashed passwords to 3rd party services such as "Have I Been Pwned,” putting full trust into a single person operation in Australia.
|Keeper Provides Top-Notch Customer Service
Keeper provides 24x7 customer service over the phone and through chat.
Bitwarden does not offer phone or chat support.
