If your workloads are running on AWS and you want a quick and easy integration with a solution to manage your secrets, AWS Secrets Manager can do the job. If you're not hosting your application on AWS or you're trying to do something on-prem, AWS will still be able to solve most of your issues, depending on the use case. It certainly cannot act as a PAM solution. I would rate AWS Secrets Manager a 10 out of 10. Everything is good, and I have not had any issues with it. It is a part of the overall workload. It is just a piece of interface for us to save the secrets.

We do not make much use of the interface. Rather, we use the programmatic interface. In summary, this is a good product and well suits our needs. There are no missing options that are blocking our use case as of now. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

I have been using AWS for the past 10 years and am quite comfortable working in that environment. The Secrets Manager is just one of the AWS products that I use regularly. Overall, this is a good product, we are satisfied with the support, and I recommend it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
