Quotes From Members Comparing IBM Tivoli Access Manager vs Okta

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
The integration effort with the end application is quite straightforward and easy.Single Sign-On functionality is valuable because the core purpose of the product is to allow universal (or bespoke) SSO for application suites.SAML 2.0.OAuth 2 is now the de facto standard for API protection and scoped authorized delegation. IBM TAM now supports OAuth 2 and can act as fully compliant OAuth 2 authorization server.The Verify feature: A push method which customers are going for.

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
Multi-factor authentication with social integration needs to improve.The profiling element is incredibly robust, but also equally as complex, it requires an off-site course to be able to understand the context or the plethora of options available.The self-service portal needs improvement.An Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for the newer appliance versions for hosting the virtual appliances on AWS will help.Looking at their roadmap, they have a broad grasp of the security features which the industry needs.

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 might be high, but it comes down when the number of people using the product goes up.
