Pros: First, OKTA is so easy to use, it really has a great interface. Was very simple to setup. Although I personally had a issue with the local client for AD it was a user issue not a OKTA issue. I found its integration is really seamless, and have very little management outside of the regular self audits I do and answering questions if someone has one.

Cons: Support. Don't get me wrong the support is top notch, but I didn't get the enterprise level and sometimes feel the brush off. If i had questions during setup they wanted me to buy a service set to get more money from me. I really just had quick questions. Companies that charge for setup support frustrate me as I just spent money with you and you want more before i even get it running. I think the licensing costs are fair but more than what I would expect from a cloud company just managing authentication for me.

Overall: Single Sign On (SSO) was the biggest benefit. Happy users was the other. Really its not fully utilized and feel like we have been paying for it like a gym membership. You want to use it but users are lazy and find ways not too. And since it only supports Cloud and web applications, local apps are left out. This though isn't a issue for us as we have more than enough to justify the expense of OKTA.

Pros: Our users save minutes every single day, no longer repetitively typing and re-typing their directory password. When we have had issues with applications, their support has been extremely responsive. They also take what the community builds as custom applications and will roll those into the app library as they put polish on them and make them ready for prime time.

Cons: The only downside to Okta is cost. We know these systems are not cheap and Okta is one of the premium models for sure. We decided that with a system which was so user intensive and users had to touch many times per day for logging into applications, we were not willing to sacrifice usability for what came down to not a lot of money. I will tell you that the list pricing on their website is very negotiable. If you can find some other customers to talk pricing to you you'll know that good deals are there if you work it correctly with your account team and their sales cycle.

Pros: Okta is intuitive to manage. It packages a lot of components into a single pane of glass (unlike, say, Microsoft's solution which requires a bunch of disparate systems). You get a log of value for your money. The support and development teams are responsive. The support for single sign-on to non-SSO apps with the browser plugin is very helpful. The product looks nice, and is easy for end users to use. The Okta Application Network has far more apps total, with SAML support, and with provisioning support than the competitors.

Cons: Their MDM solution (OMM) is very basic, and slow to develop more features. It would be nice if you could deploy any mobile app you wish, not just the ones associated with catalog apps. OMM should really support enterprise wireless profiles as well. The browser plugin for IE sometimes misbehaves, and upgrading it doesn't always go as smoothly as it should.

Okta is a powerful, easy to use SSO tool with a decent amount of customizability, easy to administer

Pros: 1. I like how easy it is to set up for the first time. We synced up AD to it with very little work, or issue.
2. I love how easy it is to add new applications and maintain our instance.
3. It's very easy to use. We rarely have issues with end users.
4. There are a lot of built in application setups already, which makes it easy to add most software.
5. The documentation and app setup walkthroughs are great.

Cons: 1. Their customer service is pretty bad. I deal with a lot of vendors and this is one of my least favorites to have to call.
2. While their application documentation is good, the rest of their documentation is pretty hit or miss. I'd say the majority are good, but several are just not very useful at all.
3. While it's easy to administer, this comes at the cost of some customizability.

Pros: So many pros, how to list them all:

- Single Sign-on,
- Multi-factor Auth
- Life-cycle Management
- Universal Directory
- API access management

Okta coves all basis of Identify management in an easy to use software solution. The best aprt is now most of my employees do even know there password for access to critical / sensitive software and applications.

Cons: When okta down, my staff are unable to get access to majority of the solutions they use. This has happened only 2 times and was for less then an hour each time in the 3 year we been suing okta.

Overall: Love it, it the best there is out there!

Pros: My favorite thing about Okta was downloading the app in lieu of giving my company express permission to access my personal cell phone. If you download the Okta app and sync it with our work profile, I am still able to access all the files I need through Box, Outlook360, Concur, ADP, and others. It makes accessing them when I am not at my laptop, extremely easy. In the case of needing to get to my email remotely, it makes the process much faster than firing up the computer, logging onto the VPN, and signing into Outlook.

Cons: Occasionally, I have to sign into the individual apps again, but it's still infinitely easier than working on my laptop in a pinch.

Overall: It streamlines my daily work tasks when I'm away from my computer.

Pros: I use this software for a company I work with and love how I don't ever have to remember passwords - AND how it logs me in automatically. I'm a man who loves things to be easy, and Okta removes those extra clicks of having to select my username and click submit (I'm looking at you, LastPass).

Cons: When I'm logged into Okta, it automatically selects my credentials for me. So for sites that I have lots of user names for, it overrides my ability to choose one. I then have to open an incognito window, and pull my un/pw from LastPass - which is a pain.

Pros: I love that it simplifies my life! I literally don't know what I would do without Okta because it allows me to easily access to tools that I need without having to remember a zillion passwords.

Cons: I can't find anything yet. One thing I've thought about is being able to use it for personal log ins (instead of just work-related ones). I haven't tried this but would love to consolidate my personal and professional log in credentials into 1 Okta account.

Overall: It simplifies my life & allows me to more easily do the things I need to on a daily basis.

Pros: It is very simple to use. The procedures to get into the application are very easy. No previous knowledge is required to understand its functionality. The task of re-typing your passwords is now minimal since this application solves that very problem. They have both Android and iPhone versions, apart from the desktop version. Since there are a lot of applications already enrolled, it becomes easier to use.

Cons: The support team is not very helpful. The fact that they charge you for having a conversation with their support team seemed ridiculous. Also, the very application when all the necessary features are added is quite expensive.

Pros: It's nice to be able to log into many sites with a single click. It also has a nice browser plugin that allows me to access those sites quickly and effectively.

Cons: I don't really like the interface and some elements of how the program works. I regularly have trouble when adding new programs to it. I also run into a lot of issues when trying to access sites from my phone. It took forever to get it set up and working.

Overall: It allows our company to have a secure password management software that allows for randomly generated passwords and single sign on capability which enhances our cyber security.

Pros: With Okta it is very easy to log into various apps without having to enter a password into every single App. I have over 20 apps so having to do duo sign on (insert password and then have system send push notification) is incredibly convenient. Also, it is easy to request and receive an app.

Cons: I have no cons, though I wish I could just obtain the apps without waiting to be granted apps.

Pros: We use it as an external authenticator for our Support Portal and Community for external clients, and for an authenticator for all our work related apps for our internal users (employees). It is a great way to have everything under one roof.

Pros: Okta makes it easy to provide a one-stop portal for all employees tailored to the sites and services they need access to. Instead of complex controls and customization, Okta focuses on getting you set up fast and offering power user options only when needed. This cuts down on time to configure and time to go live.

Okta also has benefits for providers, with a simple developer program and easy app publication.

Cons: Okta can be cumbersome if your services are not well documented. This is a flaw of SAML integrations, and not of Okta, but one that can often pop up during configuration. Okta also has some naming conventions that differ from standards.

Overall: Identity management, SSO, login, user provisioning.

Pros: I like that it bring the internet applications like ADP and others to a Single sign on environment linked to your Active Directory. Having that means users can add approved applications for business or personal use and have them easily secured via AD

Cons: the setup was harder than they let on, however it does work as promised. The application required a small application to be installed on servers to establish the sync with the OKTA sites. I can only get it successfully installed on one server so there is no redundancy. I also feel like their constant barrage of emails about updates is a bit excessive.

Comments: My company has been using Okta for about a year now. All I really have to say is that it's awesome. We rarely have to unlock user accounts anymore, and everybody seems to know where to go to access their apps and resources. OKTA!

Pros: Literally, stores all your credentials and logs you into 1000s of apps and webpages. Customer support is amazing as well!!!

Cons: The only cons I can think of are the one day when Dyn was going through a DDoS attack, half of our users couldn't access Okta. Also, I can see where people could forget their passwords altogether after sustained use of Okta.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's definitely worth a try, and once you try it, you'll be hooked :)

Pros: It's super easy to use and set up. The instructions that it provides is well written. I didn't have to track down my coworkers to set it up. There's a phone app that I set up to push a notification to my phone so I can approve verifications quickly. That is my favorite feature.

Cons: If you don't have a smartphone using this could be rather difficult or if you don't have enough storage on your phone to download the app. When I first set it up I had to quickly type in the code that was generated and sometimes it would not be enough time for you to type in your code.

Pros: I like how it's easy to add and remove tiles. It also automatically logs you in on the selected app and it offers to save password on new app when it's your first time logging to it.

Cons: It can get in conflict if you have other password manager type of apps. If you have LastPass or has password-saving enabled with your browser, you need to update those too if you are updating password on Okta.

Comments: We've used OKTA for over 3 years to integrate SSO with Cloud based applications and custom in-house built solutions. OKTA is easy to configure for Cloud based apps. They give you step-by-step detailed instructions (with pics) on how to configure your Cloud app (Workday, Service Now, Salesforce, etc...ALL the cloud apps are here) and OKTA to just work. For custom in-house built applications, OKTA offers a variety of ways to integrate SSO.

Pros: Extremely easy to use with both Cloud and custom built applications. Once set up, it just works...always.

Cons: Sewing in your own authenticate into your custom apps requires some high-level technical expertise but OKTA offers plenty of examples on-line. We've used it for ASP.NET authentication and custom HTML5/JavaScript client applications.

Comments: As an admin, Okta has been very helpful in provisioning users accounts and assigning apps. The OAN is growing by the day and includes most of the web apps that we use daily. Deactivating accounts is easy as our accounts are all AD mastered and all accounts and downstream apps are deactivated when the AD account is disabled. However, that won't happen until Okta actually syncs with the AD manager server, so one must be diligent during time sensitive terminations (but that's our job, right?). As a user, I really enjoy the single login. Multi-factor Authentication provides piece of mind once you get past thinking of it as a hassle. I like that I can log in from anywhere to just about all my apps.

Pros: Ease of use once set up, growing selection of apps in the OAN, easy provisioning and de-provisioning of apps and user accounts

Cons: AD sync is not real time and the minimum setting is 1 hour. Frequently used Admin controls are buried in the interface.

Comments: Okta has been huge for us at Rosetta Stone. Password reset tickets used to be our number one call driver to the Help Desk. Within two months, it dropped to number 5. Would have been lower but still adding apps. This also allows our Help Desk to work on higher level Tier 2 tasks. Employees can access tools from any device, and user adoption of new tools are increased because they see their apps every day in the tile menu. It¿s helped onboard acquisition groups faster and reduced the need for VPN. The overall move to cloud applications also allows us to focus more effort on change management and building relationships with business units. Okta has been a grand slam for us. Our biggest challenge is there is a line of people beating down our door to get their apps into Okta. That¿s a good problem to have.

Pros: Easy to set up Easy to use Apps available from any device, any browser User adoption

Cons: Connections to app sometimes take longer if changes are made by vendor. New and improved app connection tools are making this better. Employees asking for more apps which is good. System admins fighting other fires.

Comments: We had a requirement for a single sign-on solution following the companies decision to move to exchange online. After testing various other solutions we found okta to be the best.

Okta is most definitely now embedded into our organisation as its now used for a variety of applications and not just office 365.

Pros: Ease of implementation and use. Cost effective Large number of pre-configured applications

Cons: Support wasn't great when we had an issue simply due to the time difference being based in the UK and support is over in the states. Okta are aware of this and I'm confident European support will be at the same level as that of the US in the near future.

If they don't have their computer, but still need to work, no problem! They go to the website, sign in, and all their stuff is there ready to go.

Pros: Open browser, click app, Boom! You're ready to work!

Cons: I would like the dashboard for the enrolled devices to be more in depth. I would love to be able to run reports on how many ipads are enrolled or how many iphones. Current report only says iOS vs Android.

SSO done right

Comments: As a consultant, I've worked with a couple of different SSO products. I've been integrating Okta into organizations for the past few years, and have had great success. Okta has turned SSO and IdM into a streamlined easy to integrate process.
Their OAN catalog of preconfigured applications ensures very quick SSO configuration for most major business applications and thousands of apps you may have never heard of.
Users no longer need to tape passwords under their keyboards or stick them on post-its under the monitor. Configure Okta, and they need only remember one set of credentials.

Okta's support is second to none as well. For the rare time you may need assistance, they are on the ball, and ready to help.
If you are considering SSO for your organization, do yourself and favor and grab the free trial from Okta and check it out.

Comments: I use Okta everyday from a users side and a admin side. Okta is very easy to use on both sides ad it makes deploying applications to users very easy. It also integrates so many applications which makes it easy to provision users in your company new applications.

Pros: many integrations. Universal Directory works amazingly. Great UI for both users and admins.

Cons: Currently has issues with Mac and Office365.

Recommendations to other buyers: There is a great community that have resolved many issues and if you have any it is a great place to reach out to.

Pros: I like the fact that the push notification to approve or deny appears a the top of my screen as a notification, so I do not need to physically open the app, and, I can select approval by simply pulling the notification down. It is also very fast

Cons: Only drawback is that you can only authenticate if you have your cell phone nearby. I wish there was a secondary option in the event I'm without my cell.

Easy to use, easy to implement, easy to administer

Jul 14, 2014
5/5
Overall

Comments: This is THE way to get all of your systems access organized in one place. Ensure the right people have access to the right systems, and more importantly, that the wrong people don't. Make sure they're using secure passwords. And make it EASY for them to do it by giving them a single login and password to a single site. If you have users that need to access multiple systems/platforms, look no further.

Pros: Great support and team. Most integrations of any of their competitors. Not just a vendor; a partner.

Cons: Not a fault of the platform, but the system is only as good as your own implementation and roll-out. And also, a lot of systems don't support SSO, so Okta mostly serves as a password manager at that point, but it's still valuable.

Great Tool in Any Enterprise

Oct 28, 2014
5/5
Overall

Comments: Okta has been a great addition to our enterprise. It is a great service for Single Sign On and Identity Management. Before Okta, many of our end users have had issues with passwords in the many different apps we use which would resort to many IT tickets. Now, our password reset tickets have dropped drastically and once the users have learned how to use Okta, they are very happy.

Pros: - Easy SAML Integration with Okta verified apps - Active Directory Integration - Remote password resets - Password management for all apps - Reporting and auditing

Cons: - Some apps aren't Okta verified making it more difficult to implement SAML but I see this changing in time - Occasional Syncing issues

Pros: The graphical user interface is easy to use and does not take much time in familiarizing with the features. A highly responsive customer service and support team. The set up allows us to even add more applications, it is highly customizable. The application has multi factor authentication. They have reporting and statistics capabilities. They have regular audits and it does not have much issues. The end users too find it simple to use and not much issues are reported. There is this single user dash board where you get to see the whole picture in one frame.

Cons: The cost is quite pricey when it comes to service. Up-gradation, while you use desktop application is very time consuming.

Pros: I love the fact that I have access to different tools through one software. This saves a lot of time and actually improves concentration and productivity. The software is also very user friendly which is a big plus!

Cons: There is nothing negative about this software in my opinion but like all software, it can also be improved.

SSO and IDM above the rest

Dec 10, 2013

Overall

Comments: I've worked with Okta for a couple of years now. I've implemented dozens of applications supporting tens of thousands of users. After having previously worked with PingFederate, (on premise), the switch to Okta was a ray of sunshine. The ease of which you can add applications, users, and permissions is fantastic. The support staff is top notch.

Pros: Quick and easy initial configuration and user imports. Ridiculously easy SSO connection for apps. Support staff is unequaled in support and professionalism. They are building a real community around their product, that makes a difference.

Cons: None to speak of. Okta just works. Plain and simple.

Pros: We use this to manage all of our different portals and it's super convenient. Gives us a single sign on and keeps everything in one spot.

Cons: I have some issues with the verify thing on occasion but that might just be an issue with my phone. Still, would be nice to be able to do something for help within the verify app.

Pros: The password generator, going to one place to get into all your obscure applications so that you don't have to memorise a large number of unique passwords

Cons: Challenging to use and get comfortable with. There are a number of applications that are not integrated into Okta yet or the direct sign in does not work.

Pros: I am the worst at remembering passwords. Thank god for Okta! I only need to remember one and I'm able to log in and enter the fields. User interface is very clean.

Cons: It can be annoying. There is a pop up everytime I enter a password. Overall, the software is great and not much to complain about!

Okta is the leader in IDaaS

Dec 15, 2014
5/5
Overall

Comments: We performed our own assessment of IDaaS solutions prior to Gartner publishing their initial IDaaS Magic Quadrant report. Our assessment including independent research, reference calls, uptime analysis, and on-premise proof-of-concept. We found Okta to be the leader from multiple standpoints. The Gartner MQ confirmed our findings.

Pros: Our ~5000 users love the tool and find it simple and intuitive. In addition, delegating the app administration to app owners has moved the responsibility of access provisioning to the right owners.

Cons: Per design, it does not cover on-premise-non-web SSO

Comments: Don't want to remember 1000 passwords? Don't want to use the same insecure password across all your external cloud services? Okta seems like the solution.

Pros: Integrates into all common browsers. Works with external applications and websites.

Cons: The only thing missing is a password manager to easily manage all your saved passwords (rather than digging deep in the web UI).

Comments: OKTA has been a great tool for our company. We started to leverage it more and more as we migrated services to the cloud. Our user really jump on board due to OkTA's simplicity and effectiveness. It's been great for navigating our 20 plus cloud apps we leverage everyday. OKTA is also great to manage from an IT stand point. If there is anything we can't solve OKTA is very responsive and helpful when troubleshooting issues.

Pros: Very user friendly and easy to use. Also, pretty straight forward when managing it on the backend.

Cons: Doesn't support every app, but OKTA does a great job at responding to requests.
