Okta Review

5.0 last month New

Comments: My overall experience with OKTA is very good. I think it's very useful tool for security and administrative purposes.

Pros:

Okta is providing great functionality when you have multiple accounts on cloud providers or tools and need for managing from a single console.

Cons:

They should improve the UI of OKTA periodically.

Okta SSO

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: If cost is not an issue, this is should be the tool to go to. This is one of the best IAM tools present out there.

Pros:

The deployment and app integration with Okta is fairly simple. The tool is very admin friendly and user friendly. It's due to it's ease of use and wide variety of features that it offers, it is one of the best IAM tools and regarded as one of the best SSO solutions out there. The SSO integration is very simple and straightforward with most of the apps and most of the vendors that support SSO integration with Okta. The option to have an independent directory as well as an option to integrate with your existing directory works quite well. Other features such as life cycle management, Directory service and threat management make it a complete package. If cost is not an issue, this is should be the tool to go to. The documentation is very clear and the supoort is very responsive. The deployment takes less than 3 months.

Cons:

The only downside is the cost which is much higher as compared to its competitors

Useful but so frustrating

3.0 2 years ago

Comments: It's been a frustrating journey to say the least. I've heard that it's better to use if you implement it at the very beginning, but can be frustrating if you switch over to it later. My experience has been the latter, so if you're interested in it, just be aware of that.

Pros:

It's nice that all my passwords are managed by one software. And the app is somewhat useful as well.

Cons:

I'll consistently get locked out of the software, and since everything is tied to it, all my other software as well. This has caused me to lose tons of time during work hours that I can't get back.

One Of If Not The Best Authenticator and Sign On Software

5.0 2 years ago

Pros:

My company incorporated Okta into our daily workflow and everything has been a breeze since. No need to type in my password every time I'm logging in or worry about security breaches because Okta saves it all. It has a plug in which makes it even more accessible as you can log into another software without going through the hassle of getting to another page and signing in. It also only requires on log in session so you needn't constantly have to resign into it every time you need to get to another software. The phone's app UI is sleek and modern and receives the authentication requests very fast. You can also add your personal websites that use multifactor authentication to it.

Cons:

No cons to be completely honest. And that's the reason why my company has incorporated it into a lot of things.
