Hear from our customers

We're proud to be working with incredible teams, empowering them to work securely and effectively.

I love the ease of use. My favourite is the ability to upload a .env and it automatically parses the file and inputs them into fields 😍

I'm super paranoid about leaking data to prod but Onboardbase makes it easy to secure dev secrets across the entire organization, no matter the tech stack or tool we're using.


Onboardbase is a collaborative secure project development 🔥

Michael Wenhao Wu
Co-founder & CTO, IntelliCulture

It's a data bus that manages all the secrets we spill everywhere otherwise. It acts as a vault to store data and as the perfect way to call it by adding lines of code rather than lines of secrets.

Co-founder, Innected

Onboardbase helps us manage and share development secrets with our employees and contractors without worrying about security and permissions - all without any effort.

CEO, Testkit

We switched from bitwarden to onboardbase for better developer experience and we have not turned back since.

How long does it take you to onboard a new coder? how long does it take you to create a new project? Onboardbase helps with all those, drastically reducing your costs.

What advantage do you have over a password manager?

Password managers are majorly web-based and don’t integrate with development and deployment environments. Onboardbase does this effortlessly, integrates everywhere, and ensures secrets management and usage are not trivial.

What’s the difference between Onboardbase and AWS Secret manager, Google secret manager or Microsoft Key Vault?

Onboardbase is an AWS Secret Manager alternative with a wider scope across cloud providers and usage detection. It’s also much simpler and collaborative to use.
