OneLogin Review

It has resulted in a highly productive IT services organization but 24/7 product technical support would be welcomed.

Valuable Features

  • Desktop SSO - Single Sign with multiple cloud based SAAS Providers using corporate Active Directory Credentials
  • User Mapping – Control Access to cloud based SAAS Services using AD Security Groups
  • Self Service for AD Password Resets
  • Ability to Integrate with multiple directories
  • High Availability Configuration - Ability to establish a failover architecture
  • Multifactor Authentication

Improvements to My Organization

By using OneLogin, we have eliminated the need for users to remember and use multiple credentials for several cloud based SAAS applications. In turn this has resulted in fewer calls to the IT Helpdesk. The change password feature acts as a self-service mechanism and enables users to reset their Active Directory Domain credentials without involving the need to contact the IT Helpdesk. Overall it has resulted in a highly productive IT services organization.

Room for Improvement

Probably establishing a 24/7 product technical support with dedicated staff. Personally, I have never had to call outside business hours, so not sure if this is applicable. However there have been times where reaching a technical support resource during US Business hours is difficult. In my experience the easiest way to access OneLogin Tech support has been over email and their Ticketing System.
