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

Pros
"The app provides ready-made services that we can talk to without issue.""There is a lot of flexibility and a lot of control if you use this efficiently.""There is a certain accessibility feature that I can set using a cloud identity, which is really valuable to us.""We do not need to maintain the hardware.""It is totally awesome in terms of scalability. Its scalability was the main reason for moving to Google Cloud. It also comes with a lot of features. We are satisfied with the features it has."

"The most valuable aspects of the solution are the integration with external websites one-factor authentication.""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.""Enabled MFA to access federated applications as well as increased user satisfaction through improved provisioning times and more reliable processes.""The ease of deployment, ease of use, and speed of delivery is what I like about Okta Workforce Identity. It is very easy to use. For a lot of software, you need to be trained extensively and have a very technical background. Okta Workforce Identity is quite simple. You can integrate any software into Okta. They've got a network of 7,000 applications that easily integrate into it.""Having a single sign-on to all our applications.""The MFA part is the best. MFA provided most of the security that we were looking at with respect to the second level of authentication. Okta Workforce Identity provides a number of options with respect to multifactor authentication, such as the app, phone call, and text. These options provide different ways of logging in for users, and they were a lot more than what we needed. This is certainly a very good feature of Okta Workforce Identity.""The most valuable features are ease of operation and visibility."

Cons
"The initial setup was quite complex.""The setup could be more user-friendly.""the documentation could be a bit better in terms of what is presented on the screen versus what actually happens.""I think this product needs to shift the focus from our software, our solution, like social media analytics to our customers; not maintenance in the hardware.""We have some challenges related to purging the data. We get a lot of data on a daily basis that has to be refreshed on the site, but we are seeing some challenges with that. They can also include some third-party integration. We have one Akamai dependency. If they can come up with some API to talk to Akamai, it would be good."

"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.""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.""SSO and MFA for improved end-user experience, and protection against password spray attacks, account password self-service.""It would be pricing, which is a tough one because it goes against Microsoft. A lot of companies say they're a Microsoft partner, and they get all their software for free. Okta is like a luxury product, and it's not the most affordable one. I would say if they could work on pricing, it would help. Other than that, they've done great strides in developing a product that is really good. The companies that do see the value tend to invest in it.""You can't hide the device when you're checking logs.""They also have single sign-on (SSO). When we bought Okta Workforce Identity a year and a half ago, I was also looking at SSO, but not much documentation was available for SSO. The documentation for SSO should be a little more robust for somebody who is implementing it for the first time.""The integration with third-party tools needs to be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I think that the cost is metered based on the data, but I don't have the details.""Its price is good. For each server, we are saving $300 a month. We have at least thousands of servers. It is a huge cost reduction for us."

"It could be a bit too pricey for small companies. Okta Workforce Identity can add a lot of benefits, but smaller companies may not have a lot of applications that need to be managed by Okta Workforce Identity. In larger organizations, there are more departments, applications, and users to manage. Okta Workforce Identity adds a bit more value to those bigger organizations. In addition to standard licensing fees, there are also additional costs for things""License is around US$20,000 annually.""I believe it competes well. The pricing is pretty competitive. I know that Microsoft also provides something similar with its MFA and identity services."

Overview

Google’s mission is to organize the world‘s information and make it universally accessible and useful.

Since our founding in 1998, Google has grown by leaps and bounds. From offering search in a single language we now offer dozens of products and services—including various forms of advertising and web applications for all kinds of tasks—in scores of languages. And starting from two computer science students in a university dorm room, we now have thousands of employees and offices around the world. A lot has changed since the first Google search engine appeared. But some things haven’t changed: our dedication to our users and our belief in the possibilities of the Internet itself.
