Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It scales in terms of numbers and types of identities. It can govern the on-premise applications as well as the cloud applications. So, it can manage hybrid environments with all types of identities and various load amounts.""The most valuable feature in Omada is the governance. We work with other products and other product vendors, but the sweet spot in the market for Omada is where things are heavy on governance."

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
"They need to improve the cost for small companies.""I would like to see them expand the functionality of the tool to continue to be competitive with the monsters out there. For example, they could add functionality on the authentication side, functionality that Octa and SailPoint have. But they should do that while maintaining the same simplicity that makes Omada a product of choice today."

"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."

More Azure Active Directory Cons »

"The security features could always use improvement, although there has already been a huge improvement from years ago.""it's very dependent on an active directory""Many of the features that exist in Active Directory do not exist in Identity Manager, which means that people depend on Active Directory.""We have a lot of problems when it comes to integrating with Active Directory.""I would like to have better support for multi-cloud sessions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is too high for SMBs.""Omada continues to be very competitive on pricing, especially on the Omada cloud product."

More Omada Identity Cloud 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."

"We pay approximately $6.50 per user for the standard version. If you are paying for an enterprise license that includes VDI then it will cost approximately $25 per user on a monthly basis.""Licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis."
