Pros: it keeps the simplicity of any 2fa but adds extra features especially for businesses. We had been using it for our 2fa VPN without any issues.

Cons: It is not that popular, for some reason there are many companies that are not aware of Okta.
Another thing is the app and the setup could become more friendly or appealing to the day to day users.

Pros: Okta is integrated with most of the applications that I use for work. It saves me time accessing different tools I use, while keeping log in information secure.

Cons: Updating plug-ins, particularly for internet explorer, can be a hassle. Often when I try to update plug-ins for internet explorer, it does not appear to update properly.

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: It makes our life easier by logging us in automatically into different websites after we store the credentials once.

Cons: Sometimes it doesn't land on a page that it should but takes us to the home page of the website. For example on salesforce if someone sends us a link to a particular record page sometimes it takes us to the homepage and not the actual record page.

Overall: Simple way to sign in into different websites by saving our credentials.

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: 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 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.

Pros: It's so easy to use for snow days like today when I'm working from home! I just send a push notification to get logged in and I can easy log in with my laptop. It's also great for keeping all of our applications in one place!

Cons: Sometimes if there's a heavy amount of people trying to get on in one area you won't be able to log on, but I think that's standard for overload with any software use.

Pros: This has simplified my access to applications that I utilize. I previously had to keep track and manage access for several applications that I use. With Okta I can login to our company Okta portal and then from there I have straight access to the programs and applications I need. This has been a time saver.

Cons: Okta times out frequently but that may be due to company settings. It would be great to have a login session to Okta last longer.

We use Okta at my company to manage single sign-in across many services.

Pros: It is really easy to log onto different services and keep track of passwords. It gives a nice layer of security too since the logins are on behalf of the company. It is convenient to click the Okta icon in my browser to navigate to a particular service.

Cons: It is hard to say, since it functions exactly as I need it to function. One improvement could be on the UI on the site. It looks a bit too much like Bootstrap, but that is just a design decision.

Overall: I don't have to keep track of tons of different passwords, and whatever permissions I need across different apps can be managed pretty easily by my company.

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.

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 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.

Cons: There are a few features lacking, for example searching for groups within Okta can be hard or pulling up reports requires knowledge of their unique search query.

Pros: Okta makes life easy. With automatic provisioning of Apps, accounts, and SAML authentication, it's really saved us time (and money) in rolling out new users, and keep current users happy.

Cons: There are certain features we'd like a little more control over, but for the most part you're able to customize and control everything. It's a struggle to think of something I don't like.

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.

We started using OKTA to help us achieve the SSO agenda we set forth in IT and it worked.

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: 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: 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.

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 :)

Comments: We use Okta Identity Management to help identify our key users and ensure that they are required to use MFA if they are 'off network'. This type of security has allowed our organization to stay proactive & in fact ward of several breach attempts. Very satisfied with everything they've had to offer.

Pros: Improved security. Excellent support. Great community. Clear communication. Transparency

Cons: Feature roadmaps could be more clear. Would like to know when features that pertain to MY environment are being released (otherwise it becomes white noise).

Recommendations to other buyers: Definitely reach out to Okta's sales team at least! If it's not right for you they'll tell you but if you're security conscious, you'll want to use a platform like Okta.

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.

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

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. It's ease of use meant minimal to no training for end users and the implementation was very straight forward. 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.

Comments: So I have been using Okta on a daily basis for over a month. I was very impressed by how easy I could learn and navigate the platform. It helps me perform tasks in current role 5 times faster than what I worked with previously. Earlier this week I just downloaded the app to my iPhone. I clearly was missing out on how much faster I can complete work.

Pros: Easy to Use Great Phone App Great Customer Service Even greater Okta community base

Cons: So far I have none :)

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.

Okta is the leader in IDaaS

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

Great Tool in Any Enterprise

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

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.

Overall

Comments: Okta isn't just Single Sign On, it's an identity solution. They have lots of features that provide added value including active directory integration, multi-factor authentication, and a huge library of pre-verified (integrated), applications. Their support doesn't just stop at a phone call either. They give you the knowledge and tools to conquer the cloud.

Pros: Rapid integration and deployment of apps as well as an easy to use interface.

Cons: Support for on-premises applications is limited but exists.

Okta keeps me sane

Overall

Comments: Easy to use from an end user perspective, which is always nice in a sales office where changes are looked upon with suspicion.

Pros: Okta keeps me from needing to remember a million different passwords, including secure sites like ADP which you can't get from tools like LastPass. They also have a mobile app which is nice.

Cons: The mobile app doesn't log you into other apps, it just takes you into the site through a web browser. This would be nice, except it doesn't always populate your credentials, which kind of defeats the purpose
