We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This solution serves as the basis to understand the MS SSO and MFA capabilities."
"The ability to grant access to other organizations is helpful."
"The interface is well laid out and it is easy to navigate."
"The most valuable feature is that it is very easy to implement, you don't need a lot of effort to set up the solution. 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."
"I would tell others that this solution is reliable. If they are looking for a solution that is reliable and that is scalable, then this is a good one."
"The scalability of the solution is good. We haven't felt we've been restricted from expanding as necessary and we haven't heard of any issues from our clients."
"In general, the customization that is offered is very good. The company that I am working with currently is using this feature quite extensively."
"The product allows customization via custom code."
"The product was built to be scalable."
"Once it is set up, it is easy to use and it integrates with most of the products on the market."
"From a technical perspective, the solution is very good we can operate and control the user by ourselves."
"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."
"In the next release, I would like to see improvements made to the interface."
"The mobile access to the solution isn't ideal. They should work to improve its functionality."
"The pricing of the solution is in need of improvement. Oracle products are very expensive."
"The technical support is not very good at all."
"The product is complicated and difficult to install and configure."
"There are problems with stability."
"The initial implementation can definitely be improved because you have to work on several components to configure it correctly."
"There could be some improvements in the documentation and overall knowledge base of the solution."
"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."
"The price is really good and it is flexible because they have CPU licenses. The license is a one-time-only purchase."
