Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

"We don't need to connect anymore. It is automatically connected when you log on in Windows.""The ZPA is a unique feature which offers VPN along with all the additional security needed."

Cons
"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."

"SCMP support would be one of the biggest improvements in my opinion. More speed improvements are also required.""It's an expensive solution."

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."
