What makes Keeper the best 1Password alternative?


Keeper encrypts at the record level

Keeper is built with a proprietary zero-knowledge security architecture, meaning all encryption and decryption is done locally on the user’s device. Each record is encrypted using AES-256 with a different and unique key that is randomly generated, client-side.

1Password is zero-knowledge, but they only encrypt data at the vault level and do not also encrypt each individual record and folder with a different AES-256 key. See their security design here.

Keeper makes sharing easier than 1Password

Keeper provides shareable folders and individual records within a single vault to allow for easy and effective access, sharing and management.

Shared records between Keeper users works by encrypting the record key with the public key of the recipient.

A record share in Keeper is kept fully in sync with the source data so the shared record is always up-to-date. Keeper's sharing also supports bi-directional edits.

Keeper provides users with Time-Limited Access sharing, enabling them to set an expiration date on shares, ensuring access is revoked and extending least-privilege.

Keeper supports One-Time Share links to non-Keeper users, but even that method keeps the data perfectly in sync between the users. Further, Keeper has enabled Self-Destructing Records, allowing users to create records that can be shared with anyone and will delete themselves from the sender’s vault after a specified period or after the recipient views the record.

1Password requires a user to create separate vaults for sharing different sets of passwords. 1Password uses tags and nested tags to organize data between different vaults.

1Password’s external sharing system creates a copy of the record contents with the recipient. Information in the shared data is not in sync with the original source.

Keeper provides market-leading security infrastructure and policies

Keeper has the longest-standing SOC 2 Type 2, ISO 27001 and TRUSTe certification in the industry. Keeper’s ISMS will ensure that strict security controls are in place to protect customer data and ensure secure operation of products and services.

Keeper is also FedRAMP Authorized and StateRAMP Authorized – proving our commitment to maintain the highest standard of cybersecurity.

Keeper is ITAR compliant, with all development and engineering comprising US-based employees that are US Citizens.

Keeper does not outsource any software development.

Keeper integrates with all SAML 2.0 identity providers including Entra ID (Azure), Okta, Ping and hundreds of others.

1Password is not FedRAMP Authorized or in progress of achieving authorization.

Superior SSO integration

Keeper integrates with all SAML 2.0 Identity Providers (IdP) including Azure, Okta, Ping and hundreds of others.

When using Keeper with SSO, there's no master password, and encryption is performed using 256-bit Elliptic Curve keys.

Keeper holds multiple US utility patents on zero-knowledge SSO integration and other technology.

Keeper has a dedicated application in both the Azure Marketplace and Google Workspace Marketplace, providing quick time-to-value for organizations and easing SSO integration. Keeper is the only dedicated app in the industry in the Google Workspace Marketplace for SSO and SCIM configuration.

Keeper provides a fully cloud-based system for syncing Google Teams to Keeper without hosting any infrastructure.

1Password has an integration with Okta and Azure, but it's using OIDC, not SAML.

1Password does not have a generic SAML connector.

1Password does not hold any US utility patents.

1Password is not available in the Azure Marketplace or Google Workspace Marketplace.

1Password does not integrate with Entra ID (Azure) for seamless authentication.

Logging in to a new device

Keeper is seamless, using push notifications to allow for a frictionless login experience.

The Keeper Automator service provides automated device approvals without any user interaction required.

Logging in to 1Password with a new device requires an old device or admin-initiated recovery. Recovery is a back-and-forth of emails and a login by the admin.


Keeper supports direct SCIM provisioning with any identity provider, without requiring any software installation.

Keeper supports multiple identity providers, configurations and nodes for different organizational units all within the same Keeper tenant.

1Password’s SCIM provisioning requires installation of the 1Password SCIM Bridge in either on-prem or cloud environments.

1Password only permits the use of a single identity provider. They don't support advanced configurations, nodes and multiple identity providers in the same environment.

Dark web monitoring

Keeper's BreachWatch® keeps everything in our infrastructure and protects hashes with hardware security modules.

BreachWatch backend architecture was built to prevent the correlation of a breached password to an actual password in the user's vault, no matter the size of the data breach. The hashing used in the breached password detection utilizes a physical Hardware Security Module to ensure that hashing can only be performed online - to prevent any threat of brute force attack on the BreachWatch data.

1Password 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 isolated hosting in more regions

Keeper offers hosting in US, US (GovCloud), EU, AU, CA and JP.

1Password only offers US, CA and EU hosting.

Keeper's secrets manager is a superior technology

Keeper provides 6 API languages and more than 20 integrations with popular CI/CD and developer tools. Management of secrets is fully integrated into the Keeper vault and the Commander CLI. Keeper's secrets manager platform provides record-level and folder-level access.

Keeper Secrets Manager (KSM) is fully cloud-based and does not require any on-prem service to broker requests. KSM was built from the ground up to be fully integrated into Keeper's platform.

Keeper supports automated password rotation, enabling users to securely rotate credentials in any cloud-based or on-prem environment. Users can rotate service accounts, Active Directory accounts, Windows or Linux Users, cloud accounts, SSH keys, database passwords and more.

Automated password rotation is managed directly in the Keeper vault.

1Password's secrets automation platform offers only 3 pre-built CI/CD integrations, 2 IaC integrations and 60+ Shell plugins.

1Password automation, which is based on an acquisition of SecretHub, requires the user to install a "Connect Server" in their environment.

The Connect Server is deployed through Docker and encryption responsibilities are passed on to the customer to implement TLS encryption in their Docker or Kubernetes environment.

1Password does not support automated password rotation.

Other critical differentiators

Keeper offers a multi-tenant MSP solution.

Keeper's node architecture allows different identity providers to be used within the same tenant.

Keeper Connection Manager (KCM) provides privileged sessions and secure remote access. KCM is fully integrated with cloud-brokered connections to remote infrastructure and remote browser isolation for secure and recorded browsing sessions.

Keeper Compliance Reports provides on-demand visibility to access permissions on records and credentials in your enterprise, without exposing secrets.

Keeper allows admins to create password generator enforcement policies at the domain level.

Keeper leads in customization. Admins can enable custom record types for distinction in their organization and upload personalized logos for better adoption. Users can also change their theme colors, giving them a more user-friendly experience.

Keeper secures master password-based accounts with 1 million rounds of PBKDF2, device approvals and super-encryption on our infrastructure.

Keeper provides secure, end-to-end encrypted messaging with KeeperChat.

1Password does not offer an MSP solution.

1Password does not offer node architecture or multiple identity providers.

1Password does not offer any kind of privileged session management software.

1Password does not offer password generator enforcement policies for domains.

1Password requires users to store a secret key in addition to a master password rather than securing keys with PBKDF2.

1Password does not offer any kind of encrypted chat.
