We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Enabled MFA to access federated applications as well as increased user satisfaction through improved provisioning times and more reliable processes."
"The initial setup is easy."
"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."
"It's reliable and it does what it is advertised to do."
"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 solution so far has been very stable."
"The support for YubiKey is really good because you don't actually have to type in your username and password."
"Their split tunneling feature has been very valuable to our company since implementing the Perimeter 81 solution."
"It can have more API integrations."
"The pricing could be improved."
"You can't hide the device when you're checking logs."
"SSO and MFA for improved end-user experience, and protection against password spray attacks, account password self-service."
"The integration with third-party tools needs to be improved."
"There are some issues with the interface that can be improved."
"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."
"The solution can be quite expensive."
"I would suggest adding more networking and security features that allow more customization within their platform."
"License is around US$20,000 annually."
"It has a yearly subscription. As compared to its competitors, it is quite expensive. It also has a complex licensing model."
"The price of this product could be lower."
"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"
"It is costly for large companies."
"I believe it competes well. The pricing is pretty competitive. I know that Microsoft also provides something similar with its MFA and identity services."
"Overall I am very happy with the solution’s flexibility and pricing."
