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

Pros
Enabled MFA to access federated applications as well as increased user satisfaction through improved provisioning times and more reliable processes.The most valuable feature of this solution for most customers is access management.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.The most valuable aspects of the solution are the integration with external websites one-factor authentication.It made things a lot easier, especially with passwords.It has a wide range of MFA options. I prefer "Okta Verify" out of them all.Other than Okta being an easy and awesome integration tool, one of the best features it has is the provisioning and deprovisioning, which makes management way easier. You don't need to be too technical to understand how it works.The feature that is most valuable to me is the automated user provisioning that we set up using Okta as a major part of that process.

Cons
SSO and MFA for improved end-user experience, and protection against password spray attacks, account password self-service.This solution would be improved by adding biometrics features.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.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.On the admin side, we can create our own passwords instead of generating one, which is usually difficult to explain to a user.RESTful Web Service calls and their response seem a bit slow.We still had to write several internal programs/scripts to complete the user-provisioning process. Okta does not have the ability to provision mailbox accounts for on-premise Exchange or in a hybrid O365 environment. The Group Push function from Okta to AD did not work reliably in our environment.UD attribute mapping, Okta group rules, and dynamic usage could use improvement. It also needs more in-depth functionality and features to integrate with RADIUS solutions.

They could provide more checks and balances to find out if there have been any security lapses, e.g., if somebody is trying to break into the system. Some other products have these detection mechanisms in case someone is trying to hack into the system or find out a user's passwords.
