What is most valuable?

The Single Sign-On and MFA features are most valuable.

How has it helped my organization?

Prior to implementing Okta for our environment, we had our users (15,000-plus) contact the Service Desk to reset their... more»

What needs improvement?

The Identity Management part can be improved a bit.

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

Pricing might be high, but it comes down when the number of people using the product goes up. Check Okta's website for... more»

What is most valuable?

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. We put the process in to save time and... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our organization has a fairly high turnover rate so having an automated process for provisioning and de-provisioning of accounts saves a lot of time from an administration... more»

What needs improvement?

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... more»

What other advice do I have??

In terms of rating Okta, it is always hard for me to say, as I have not used any other product to perform the functions we use Okta for, so I really don’t have a comparison. There... more»

What is most valuable?

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... more»

How has it helped my organization?

All our logins work seamlessly without having to log in multiple times. With multiple applications, you tend to forget your credentials for some of the applications. Some... more»

What needs improvement?

Maybe the interface could use some work but, for the most part, the tool is pretty cool.

What other advice do I have??

I rate Okta 10 out of 10 for being an awesome IdP. The API alone is amazing, not to mention the features and integration they have. Compare to other IdPs, Okta uses a dashboard... more»

What is most valuable?

* User provisioning * User deprovisioning * App assignment * SAML integrations

How has it helped my organization?

We are able to deploy solutions rapidly and also have a better idea on licensing as we can easily see who has access, who has been accessing and... more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see further integrations with applications and services such as Office 365.

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

It's worth the investment. Make sure you fully utilize Okta, even if it takes professional services.

Which other solutions did I evaluate??

I have had experience with Ping and ADFS but not at the places I have worked; only with customers.

We did not previously use a different solution. Okta was the industry leader.

What other advice do I have??

What is most valuable?

1. Active Directory Sync, as its useful for pre-assigning apps, can also be used for de-provisioning apps for exiting users 2. Shared apps with common password can now be managed... more»

How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?

Command line access Reporting

Which other solutions did I evaluate??

Yes, we had previously used a different solution which was replaced by Okta. Non-scalability was the major drawback of our previous solution.

What is most valuable?

We can have all our applications in one central base where you can log into it and access it without having to enter your password for each application. This is because it saves your credentials and updates them accordingly.

How has it helped my organization?

It made things a lot easier, especially with passwords. You have one password that you have to remember, not a thousand for each application that you use for work.

What needs improvement?

On the admin side, we can create our own passwords instead of generating one, which is usually difficult to explain to a user. Otherwise, the application is pretty awesome.

What do you think of Okta?

Primary Use Case: We used this solution for provisioning more than one and a half LAC users and integrating more than 300 applications. SSO and MFA has been implemented on almost all applications. MFA options used: RSA token, Okta Verify, etc. • Improvements to My Organization: Integrating more than 300 applications is quite tough. With the help of Okta and its outstanding user friendly UI, things went fairly easily. • Valuable Features: The ease of JIT provisioning. Wide range of MFA options. I prefer "Okta Verify" out of them all. Last, but not least, the ease of writing rules. • Room for Improvement: RESTful Web Service calls and their response seem a bit slow. • Use of Solution: Less than one year.
