This is the most advantageous point, that you can do anything on Azure without taking too much time.""The single sign-on is very convenient for us.""The most valuable feature is the ease of scalability.""The single sign-on of the solution is the most valuable aspect.""The most valuable feature is the ability to set up conditional access, where you can enforce users to connect using multifactor authentication."

Cons
"The SSO MyApps interface is very basic and needs better customization capabilities.""Microsoft needs to add a single setup, so whenever resources join the company or are leaving the company, all of the changes can be made with a single click.""My only pain point in this solution is creating group membership for devices.""I would rate it an eight out of ten. The price plays a factor in the rating.""It would be ideal if the solution moved to a passwordless type of environment. It's the future of authentification. It's also more secure and convenient.""I think the documentation and configuration are both areas that need improvement.""We would like to have more granularity in the Azure conditional access in order to be able to manage more groups for devices and for applications.""Technical support could be faster."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis and the cost depends on the number of users.""This product is sold as part of the enterprise package and our licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis.""MFA and P2 licenses for two Azures for fully-enabled scenarios and features cost a lot of money. This is where Okta is trying to get the prices down.""We are a non-profit organization, so we get good prices from Microsoft for their products. It is working well, but it could be cheaper. For the type of organization we are, it would be good if they could give a little bit more and be more generous like Google, which has completely free services. Microsoft has free versions or web services called Office 365 E1, which is free for use, but we want to have it with more qualified clients.""We pay about $35 per user.""I think we're on the E3 — I think it was about 35 dollars per user.""We got a good deal. If you get rid of all the products providing features that Azure Suite can provide, then it makes sense cost-wise.""Microsoft has a free version of Azure AD. So, if you don't do a lot of advanced features, then you can use the free version, which is no cost at all because it is underpinning Office 365. Because Microsoft gives it to you as a SaaS, so there are no infrastructure costs whatsoever that you need to incur. If you use the free version, then it is free. If you use the advanced features (that we use), it is a license fee per user."
