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.

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.

It has a wide range of MFA options. I prefer "Okta Verify" out of them all.

Okta Cons

James Lambert
Sr. Systems Engineer at a healthcare company with 5,001-10,000 employees
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.

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.

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.
