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

Pros
The single sign-on is the solution's most valuable featureThe most valuable feature is the integration with the Active Directory.The most valuable feature is that it meets the requirements of the customer. You have a lot of features in the product. Every product has them, but the question is, are these products going to meet the requirement of the customer?I liked the debugging part. There are only two files (trace file and log file) that you need to look into while performing debugging, and the logs give you the exact info on where and what needs to be fixed.You can quickly deploy the entire product with a basic config within couple of hours.

The most valuable feature of this solution for most customers is access management.This solution allows us to do the provisioning. Also the most important for us is the ability to enable and disable features to employees as they onboard and offboard.The most valuable aspects of the solution are the integration with external websites one-factor authentication.It made things a lot easier, especially with passwords.It has a wide range of MFA options. I prefer "Okta Verify" out of them all.Other than Okta being an easy and awesome integration tool, one of the best features it has is the provisioning and deprovisioning, which makes management way easier. You don't need to be too technical to understand how it works.The feature that is most valuable to me is the automated user provisioning that we set up using Okta as a major part of that process.Valuable features include UD, SSO functionality, MFA and Adaptive MFA functionality, ability to link multiple Directory databases with UD.

Cons
We're currently unable to find information about if the solution can do a full implementation with SQL. Some better and more accessible documentation for new users or those curious about the product would be helpful.To add more value to this solution it needs to be more user-friendly.CA has reporting at the moment. With the reporting, every particular segmented product has a reporting engine. I would like to see centralized reporting for all of them together.The GUIs are not very clear, especially when integrating with other products from CA.

This solution would be improved by adding biometrics features.I don't know if it is possible to make it simpler to use or simpler to understand, but that would be the most important thing to improve.The solution lacks an on-premises deployment model so it can't offer a hybrid solution. It would be ideal if clients had options that weren't just cloud-based.On the admin side, we can create our own passwords instead of generating one, which is usually difficult to explain to a user.RESTful Web Service calls and their response seem a bit slow.We still had to write several internal programs/scripts to complete the user-provisioning process. Okta does not have the ability to provision mailbox accounts for on-premise Exchange or in a hybrid O365 environment. The Group Push function from Okta to AD did not work reliably in our environment.UD attribute mapping, Okta group rules, and dynamic usage could use improvement. It also needs more in-depth functionality and features to integrate with RADIUS solutions.
