Easy and flexible integration regardless of the codebase

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is that it is simple to integrate, irrespective of your codebase."
  • "This is a costly solution and the price of it should be reduced."

What is our primary use case?

We were evaluating Auth0 as centralized authentication solution for our in-house development. We are searching for the best solution to take care of this because our product development is ongoing, and we want to find just the right fit. Ultimately, we did not choose Auth0.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it is simple to integrate, irrespective of your codebase.

What needs improvement?

This is a costly solution and the price of it should be reduced.

For how long have I used the solution?

We had been evaluating and testing Auth0 for between three and four months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is pretty much stable. We did not encounter any issues with respect to integration and testing.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Considering we are conducting a PoC, we are not able to fully test scalability. However, our understanding is that it scales well.

How are customer service and technical support?

My team was in touch with their counterparts from marketing and technical resources, but because it was a PoC engagement, we did not take it further.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use another SSO product before our current PoC began.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have been evaluating multiple single sign-on solutions including Auth0 and Okta.

We run a successful proof of concept but we did not select Auth0 because their entire structure is hosted on AWS, and we are a data center company so we thought that having the backend hosted on AWS was not the right choice for us.

Had this same solution been available as a private deployment then it would have been the right fit for us.

What other advice do I have?

During our exploration and evaluation, Auth0 and Okta were the top contenders from a pure authentication point. My advice for anybody who is considering such a system is to have multiple authentication systems evaluated from a technical point of view, and adopt the one which rightly suits your use case and requirements. Different products have different features sets, but what matters most is that it is purely compatible with your use case. Scalability is probably the most crucial factor.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Easy integration, straightforward operations, but interface needs improvement

Pros and Cons

  • "Some of the valuable features of the solution are the easy integration with processes, such as Single Sign-On. Overall WSO2 is straightforward and does not need customization."
  • "This solution does not have BPM workflows already integrated, we had to integrate the BPM module externally. They do not provide full-featured auditing and certification modules out of the box."

What is our primary use case?

We have multiple clients and we have been evaluating different solutions to meet their need requirements. One of our clients is in a security practice and we are evaluating this solution and Okta.

What is most valuable?

Some of the valuable features of the solution are the easy integration with processes, such as Single Sign-On. Overall WSO2 is straightforward and does not need customization.

What needs improvement?

This solution does not have BPM workflows already integrated, we had to integrate the BPM module externally. They do not provide full-featured auditing and certification modules out of the box.

In an upcoming release, they could improve the user interface by making it more user-friendly. Additionally, they have most of the connectors for the cloud version of the solution, but not on the on-premise or hybrid versions. We are left to come up with our own API-based connectors.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for approximately two years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In my experience, I have found this solution is best suited for small integrations.

How are customer service and technical support?

The support we have received from WSO2 was very good and I would recommend the support.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I have found the solutions license is priced competitively compared to others.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have evaluated Okta.

What other advice do I have?

This solution is good for small organizations where they are looking for end-to-end infrastructure that is completely in the cloud. It is very good for Single Sign-On and deep provisioning.  Additionally, they also support different types of architecture integrations, such as on-premies. 

I would recommend it based on the cost, licensing, and integration.

I rate WSO2 Identity Server a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud
