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

Pros
The most valuable feature is that you can manage users from one central location.The most valuable feature is the performance.Although we have not looked at the whole product and explored it completely, we find that all the authentication features that we are using now are valuable.The Cloud Identity is well advanced in terms of features, applications, and the components that it is offering.The main control page and the ability to manage all our users from a web-based portal are the most valuable aspects of the solution. That's particularly useful because we're a heterogeneous network.

Enabled MFA to access federated applications as well as increased user satisfaction through improved provisioning times and more reliable processes.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
In the next release, I would like to see integration with different systems, mainly wireless SIEMS and other analytical systems that we want to introduce.The pricing for this solution is a little bit higher than AWS and others, which is something that should be improved.To improve the product, the integration with third-party products could always be smoother.The interface could be improved by simplifying it further.The solution needs to better integrate with Mac's OS.

SSO and MFA for improved end-user experience, and protection against password spray attacks, account password self-service.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The fees are paid monthly and there are no additional costs other than the licensing fees.The product is billed on a monthly basis depending on the number of users.Licensing fees are on a yearly basis.We probably spend about $50,000 a year on licensing.
