"The initial setup is easy.""It is dependent on the evolution of your user base. It depends on usage per user, so the more sign-ins there are, the more expensive it becomes, so it works best for smaller companies from a financial perspective.""It's reliable and it does what it is advertised to do.""The support for YubiKey is really good because you don't actually have to type in your username and password.""Enabled MFA to access federated applications as well as increased user satisfaction through improved provisioning times and more reliable processes.""Having a single sign-on to all our applications.""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.""It's easy to use and straightforward."

"Right now, we have to apply many workarounds for the solution to do what we need it to do. There are a lot of bugs.""The pricing needs improvement.""The skills needed now are very niche and quite low level and they need to simplify the development aspect of it.""The user interface needs improvement. It needs to be more intuitive.""Scaling this solution can be difficult.""The documentation of how to make different connections to different databases needs to be more centralized."

"The integration with third-party tools needs to be improved.""You can't hide the device when you're checking logs.""The guest user access could be improved.""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 solution can be quite expensive.""It can have more API integrations.""The initial setup can be complex at first.""Therefore, if you have 10 million users, that's almost 100 million, so it is costly."
