KeeperPAM vs One Identity
Comparing PAM Solutions

One Identity is difficult to use and lacks critical security certifications. Switch to KeeperPAM for an ultra-secure, easy-to-use solution that’s deployable in minutes, not months.

KeeperPAM vs One Identity: Features and Categories

Flexibility with identity providers

Flexibility with identity providers

Keeper Security is not an identity provider. There is no switching of supporting systems required to implement KeeperPAM. No matter what solution you’re using, Keeper can be integrated using SAML 2.0 – giving you more flexibility to select the systems that fit your needs, not the matching pairs that other providers require.

KeeperPAM deploys in minutes, not months

Legacy PAM solutions like One Identity rely on complicated appliances that have to be deployed either as a physical or virtual machine. They claim that this enhances the user experience by simplifying deployment as the solution is preinstalled on those appliances, but this is a very dated approach to technology.

KeeperPAM is a fully cloud-native, zero-trust and zero-knowledge PAM solution that deploys in minutes, not months – all while providing industry-leading security that is trusted by thousands of organisations and millions of people globally. Keeper SSO Connect® is patent-protected to provide a zero-knowledge, SOC 2 and FedRAMP-Authorised, multi-cloud SSO integration without any hardware or on-premises components needed. Keeper SSO Connect integrates with your existing SSO solution to enable zero-knowledge password management and encryption, allowing organisations to securely and easily authenticate users into their Keeper Vaults and provision user vaults quickly.

Keeper's security is far and away the most stringent in the industry, with Keeper leading its peers in obtaining SOC 2, FedRAMP and StateRAMP Authorisation - among other certifications.

Alternative PAM solutions, such as One Identity, do not typically claim to adhere to a "zero-knowledge" policy. The entire Keeper ecosystem is zero knowledge and zero trust by design. All vault data is encrypted and only accessible by the user - even Keeper employees cannot ever access customer vault data.

PAM for All Users

Integrating with existing solutions

Integrating with existing solutions

One Identity has been reviewed by both analysts and users alike as being far behind when it comes to integrations that allow end-users to leverage the solutions they need to perform their jobs. In the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Privileged Access Management, One Identity was identified as being too dependent on additional One Identity products for extending functionality.

Keeper has more than 75 integrations ready for use out of the box with simple documentation and support teams ready to help users deploy quickly and effectively.

Integrating SIEM solutions with Keeper’s Advanced Reporting and Alerts Module provides activity reporting with a variety of filters. Administrators can enable BreachWatch® event data to flow into any SIEM that uses syslog and gain visibility into whether a user’s credentials in a record have been exposed in a publicly known breach that could leave the organisation vulnerable to attacks or takeovers.

Keeper makes privileged account session management and recording easy

One Identity approaches secrets management with an open source add-on to their Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Appliance and stores and forwards credentials using HashiCorp Vault command line tools. One Identity specifically calls out that due to the customisation required, support is unavailable for this add-on, and professional services are required if help is needed.

Keeper Secrets Manager (KSM) is part of the KeeperPAM platform and has been optimised for the cloud from day one. The fully managed, cloud-based solution secures confidential data and infrastructure secrets. Integrating with KSM doesn’t require any on-premises appliances to be installed and can be plugged into your build systems quickly and easily.

Some capabilities like rotation use a lightweight gateway to perform the actions locally to prevent the need to open up any firewall ports to the outside. By combining passwords and secrets into a single user-friendly UI, IT admins can easily manage complex policies and create detailed reporting – streamlining audits and ensuring compliance.

PAM for all of your privileged accounts

PAM for all of your privileged accounts

One Identity's Safeguard is made up of several different products, each with its own complicated deployment methods.

Keeper just works. With a cloud-native design, the Keeper Vault provides high availability out of the box.

Given One Identity's complexity, it's usually only deployed to IT teams, leaving privileged accounts and sensitive information in other business lines exposed to cyber attacks.

On the other hand, Keeper is inexpensive, simple for end-users and deploys in minutes. This allows organisations to provide PAM for the masses, ensuring financial data doesn’t leak from the finance team, legal teams are secure, and HR isn’t unintentionally exposing the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of you and your colleagues.

Why Choose Keeper Over One Identity?

For too long, organisations have been forced to adopt complex PAM solutions if they wanted to protect privileged users, even if that meant purchasing difficult-to-deploy solutions they would not use. 58% of IT leaders stated there was waste in their PAM solution. As a result, many organisations don’t have the functionality they need to secure all of their privileged users and instead are left with hefty service bills and limited visibility.

KeeperPAM is a next-gen PAM solution that brings security and business efficiency to organisations of all sizes. With Keeper, enterprise-grade security is available for the entire organisation, not just the IT team. KeeperPAM deploys quickly and is built for privileged users across the entire organisation, including finance, HR, marketing and more. Get just what you need from a PAM solution and protect every privileged user in your organisation without the complex deployments and service fees of legacy platforms.
