Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It scales in terms of numbers and types of identities. It can govern the on-premise applications as well as the cloud applications. So, it can manage hybrid environments with all types of identities and various load amounts.""The most valuable feature in Omada is the governance. We work with other products and other product vendors, but the sweet spot in the market for Omada is where things are heavy on governance."

"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.""Its simplicity and its integration with various vendor-agnostic platforms are the most valuable features."

"The solution was easy to deploy.""It helps the end users to work on the road without needing to set up all kinds of VPN connections""The most valuable feature is that it will use my credentials to access various parts of the infrastructure or other solutions, such as vRealize.""The most valuable feature is single sign-on.""The most valuable feature is the User Experience Designer, which has been very helpful for our project."

Cons
"They need to improve the cost for small companies.""I would like to see them expand the functionality of the tool to continue to be competitive with the monsters out there. For example, they could add functionality on the authentication side, functionality that Octa and SailPoint have. But they should do that while maintaining the same simplicity that makes Omada a product of choice today."

"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.""It can have more API integrations."

More Okta Workforce Identity Cons »

"The security features could always use improvement, although there has already been a huge improvement from years ago.""it's very dependent on an active directory""Many of the features that exist in Active Directory do not exist in Identity Manager, which means that people depend on Active Directory.""We have a lot of problems when it comes to integrating with Active Directory.""I would like to have better support for multi-cloud sessions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is too high for SMBs.""Omada continues to be very competitive on pricing, especially on the Omada cloud product."

More Omada Identity Cloud Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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.""It is costly for large companies.""The price of this product could be lower.""It has a yearly subscription. As compared to its competitors, it is quite expensive. It also has a complex licensing model."

More Okta Workforce Identity Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We pay approximately $6.50 per user for the standard version. If you are paying for an enterprise license that includes VDI then it will cost approximately $25 per user on a monthly basis.""Licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis."
