What is most valuable?

This solution allows us to do the provisioning. Also the most important for us is the ability to enable and disable features for employees as they onboard and offboard.

What needs improvement?

It is a complex solution, and you need a good understanding of how to use it correctly. Otherwise, you can't take full advantage of what it offers and it becomes difficult to use. I don't know if it is possible to make it simpler to use or… more»

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

This is the first Single Sign-On solution that we have been using.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. I think that people have to first do a good mapping of how their use case needs to be installed so that they can do it as easily as possible. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing, we did a proof of concept for both Okta and OneLogin and we like the way Okta integrated.

What needs improvement?

Command line access Reporting

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

Setup is simple if you are an AD admin, cost comparison is nominal compared secured access

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

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

What other advice do I have?

KB article from Okta is very detailed just spend some time on the okta

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspects of the solution are the integration with external websites one-factor authentication.

What needs improvement?

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.

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

We previously used Workspace One Access Solutions from VMware. In fact, we're using it as well as Okta, so we never really switched.

What other advice do I have?

This solution is very good. Okta is, in my opinion, one of the leaders at the moment on the Polish market. However, there is some limited usability because of the requirements. We use the cloud deployment model. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?

Okta's great for their federation capabilities where it lets the IT team enable business with anyone using common federation features across SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, and internal applications. The Multi-Factor Authentication capability lets you address one of the biggest challenges around security - MFA to make it hard for adversaries to get into your systems.

How has it helped my organization?

Okta improved both organizations where I've worked with it: * Better Single Sign-On (reducing the number of passwords) * Improved accountability (to know what users were doing, and where they were working on Identity and authentication services) * Authentication (where Okta's own MFA solutions or work in combination with Duo were very useful for strengthening the security of major systems)

What needs improvement?

Better multi-factor authentication integration and support, it's around v2.0 and will need a 3.0 release for maturity.
