Pros: I love this tool. No longer have to risk giving out passwords to account. I can just give my user access to an OKTA account and then assign them chicklets to access account, software, groups and so forth, without them ever having to know the password to them. It works well and is fairly easy to use and set up users. The AD tie in is nice and helps in making it easier to add users to your account. Put yourself at ease and give OKTA a real look you will not be disappointed.

Cons: i would say adding users can seem a bit tricky and odd if you don't do it all the time, it could be a little clearer on adding users into your account. but other than that its pretty solid software

Overall: we use this for so much, a user wants to access an email account or group, give them a chicklet for it, it allows for much better sharing of items and greater control over the access as well which is great.

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.

Pros: A true single sign on platform. We are a high volume company with over 1200 employees and utilize multiple cloud-based vendors. Having all of these platforms centralized within Okta is invaluable. I could not imagine my day-to-day without it.

API documentation is extensive and functionality is robust. Okta has become our "Single Source of Truth" for not only connecting vendors, but also our data.

Mobile based app is intuitive and fast for dual-authentication. System is very secure. Hand-offs are seamless.

Cons: Dual authentication and tokens can sometime require a dual submission.

Permission grants and overall setup for user-specific platforms may take some time.

Other than that, not much more!

Overall: I am a user of this software rather an administrator, but do have some visibility to the back-end as I work with our IT department occasionally.

From a user experience standpoint, I have not come across a nicer SSO platform. It is truly a pleasure to use and seamless when accessing our systems.

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.

- 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: We have used Okta for many years in many different ways! We love the ease of use and the ability to have people signed into different applications through Okta. It eliminates the need for employees to manage several different login names and passwords! Who has time for all that?!

Cons: There is absolutely nothing I dislike about Okta!

Overall: Overall, I would recommend Okta to any business that manages loads of people and loads of different applications requiring SSO! We have used it on so many different applications and completely streamlined access for our people, saving us time and in effect...money!

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: Okta is an incredibly helpful tool for keeping everything in one place. Instead of having multiple bookmarks to keep track of your usual spots, Okta keeps them nice and organized. It saves your passwords, so there's no need to remember all the passwords you may use across multiple platforms. It also provides an extra layer of security, which is essential to keeping your information safe and secure.

Cons: No complaints! I have yet to come across any issues with Okta.

Pros: Installing and setting up the application is a very simple process. It didn't take me much time to get used to Okta. It has helped us save a lot of time by eliminating the need to type and retype passwords huge number of times. The support team has been extremely responsive to our concerns and issues were solved with in hours. The integration with the AD (active directory) has been seamless, within seconds we were able to import information and create accounts. In addition to thousands of applications in their catalog, they keep adding more each day.

Cons: I found that the report generation features aren't up to the mark. When we wanted to delete some accounts, I couldn't do it myself and had to get help from a customer support agent. What they said was we can only deactivate, but not delete them. I needed it to be removed from everywhere in fact.

Pros: Best experience I could have asked for. It makes it so easy to log into one account and get access to all of my accounts. I love that I only have to memorize one password and since I work for a cyber security company it makes it easier for us to keep things secure. Also, the Chrome Extension is nice!

Cons: The interface could look a lot better and sometimes the brand logos don't load so it's harder to find what you need.

Pros: Okta users can feed information needed to log in to different websites and the software can remember it for you, thus making it easy to access a wide variety of accounts, without having to remember each and every passwords as the software remembers the saved login credentials. Okta is easy to use and access and can be used in different platforms such as mobile phones and tablets, making logging into accounts easy. This implements the concept of Single Sign On, which needs the user to only log into one account, that is, of Okta to get access to all the applications of which the credentials have been saved.

Cons: The cost of Okta may not be affordable to small and medium scale companies, only the larger or more established companies can use this software to store employees' login credentials and other passwords. The software also does not give options of adding or deleting more or less services to manipulate the usage charges.

Pros: I hadn't heard of Okta before my company purchased it to use for single sign-on. I have at least a couple dozen apps within the Okta site of places I'm regularly logging into. Okta makes it so easy to log-in to the multiple systems I need to access on a daily/weekly basis. You can also rename some of the apps to make them more intuitive if needed.

Cons: I didn't realize the company can set up and send out its own apps into your Okta automatically, and I had already added some of the apps myself, so I ended up with a handful of duplicates. This might be less of an Okta issue and more with how my company handled it.

Overall: I'm grateful for Okta. It seems like a secure way to manage multiple log-ins and systems.

Okta is very efficient software which save lot of time.

Pros: I use OKTA for keeping track of all my passwords..for everything. I have so many logins and I constantly worry that I'm going to forget them and waste time resetting them, or that they're going to be made public somehow and my information will be compromised. OKTA takes care of all that for me by safely and securely remembering everything for me.

Cons: Sometimes OKTA will keep multiple passwords and login info for the same site, but they will use the wrong one for different instances. I also find that using Chrome to remember passwords competes with OKTA, so you have to turn it off, which means you will run into new things that need to be stored in OKTA.

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.

Comments: The best thing about Okta is its ease of use. I have had end users call me and say they must have done something wrong because nothing is ever "just that easy". I always love to be able to say "Okta is"

Pros: Their Support Ease of use robustness of the product

Cons: They are a little limited on what apps they support on Mobility. They are working hard to expand that market and have made several custom connections just for our company.

Recommendations to other buyers: This will save you so much time. Go sign up. Like, now. Why are you still reading this comment? Go already!

Pros: In todays corporate culture you are using multiple resources and software tools in your day to day. Each tool is asking you to change your password and different intervals making it near impossible to keep up. This takes care of all that for you.

Cons: This is a simple tool, that is effective, any new additions could only make it more complicated without a need. Keep it simple, secure and effective this tool does it all.

Pros: Long story short: someone's email got hacked into at the firm. The agency implemented the Okta software shortly afterwards. No one's been hacked since so I guess Okta gets the job done.

Cons: All of the two step authentication options are kind of a bummer. When logging in to our work portal, I chose the option of verification code through text message. Sometimes I have to send the code twice.

Overall: Company security seems to be stronger.

Pros: Okta is a great tool that allows me to confidently store my login info for all the different software apps I use for work. I don't have to worry about things getting stolen due to the 2 step authentication I have applied. Great product!

Cons: This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but every so often I will have to log in several times on the same day, even if I don't move my computer. I'm not sure what causes the re-login screen to pop up, but keeping me logged in while at work would make it less of a pain to access my apps. But that also shows how important security is.

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 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: We started using Okta about 4 months ago after we found it through our non-profit account on Techsoup. (Okta lets non-profits use their software for free!) There are so many features available and we don't even use them all. We use it to assign and remove login rights to various websites to our employees. The great thing about Okta is that you can assign logins to users and they don't have to know the password themselves, this makes it easy to update passwords without having to inform the users. You can also remove rights quickly and easily if employees leave the company or assigned different positions.

Cons: It would be really nice if the software could login to sites that had three required fields (eg. Username, Company ID, and Password)

Pros: As advertised, this is a one stop shop for accessing any of your accounts added to Okta authentication. With the browser app, it's quick to get to each of your applications, and quickly sign on.

Cons: I have nothing to complain about; it does the job.

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.

Pros: It is a big pain to have 10 different passwords for different softwares/websites that have different password requirements that expire at different times. Okta is the solution as a hub.

Cons: Can't complain as before this I had a spreadsheet with all my passwords.

Overall: There are ways to improve it I believe, perhaps adding external websites that the overall company isn't in control of since different departments use different softwares.

Pros: This is a good software for putting internal apps onto for a single-sign on portal that uses AD so you do not have to enter passwords. It allows for seamless transition to those internal apps without the need to sign on.

Cons: So far there is nothing that I have not liked as long as it is set up correctly.

Overall: This helped us consolidate other apps into one login without the need to remember a ton of passwords.

Pros: Super secure, also it allows you to not have to secondary sign in when it recognizes the location you are signing in at is somewhere you've signed in before. The chrome extension is also really handy to get to all of your apps.

Cons: Really there isn't anything I dislike about Okta, maybe that you have to sign in everyday but it doesn't inconvenience me very much.

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.
