We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution's ability to save and manage of all my passwords is great."
"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."
"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."
"The most valuable features depend on a customer's needs. Our customers generally find multi-factor authentication very useful."
"Having a single sign-on to all our applications."
"Its simplicity and its integration with various vendor-agnostic platforms are the most valuable features."
"It's easy to use and straightforward."
"The support for YubiKey is really good because you don't actually have to type in your username and password."
"The interface is easy to use."
"The solution is simple to use."
"In terms of managing the users on a large scale, it would be easier if they had some kind of user management portal."
"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."
"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."
"Therefore, if you have 10 million users, that's almost 100 million, so it is costly."
"The pricing could be improved."
"It can have more API integrations."
"The lifecycle management part can be improved. It should also have identity governance and the ability to choose a specific factor authentication at the application level. Its licensing and pricing can also be improved."
"SSO and MFA for improved end-user experience, and protection against password spray attacks, account password self-service."
"SafeNet's reporting and monitoring features could be improved."
"There's a dependency on Microsoft Azure."
"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."
"License is around US$20,000 annually."
"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 has a yearly subscription. As compared to its competitors, it is quite expensive. It also has a complex licensing model."
