Access Auditor

Access Auditor is great for evaluate your Governance Process and enhances that workflow before deployment. As we had to get the business up to speed afterword and that slowed us down.

If you're already using AWS, there's no reason why you should implement your own password authentication or OAuth flows when you can use Cognito instead. It solves that work for you astoundingly well. You might be tempted by a tool like Okta for OAuth flows, but unless you already have a hard dependency on it then you should go with Cognito instead. It's much lighter weight, and it's much more pleasant to extend it with lambdas.
If you don't have any AWS in your stack, or it's very very important to you to stay platform-independent for your login flows, then those are reasons to avoid Cognito.

Amazon Cognito

  • Support team should be very active, need to work on support as once I had a bad experience with them.
  • Error messages are not straight forward (user friendly) sometimes its looks too technical.
  • Could make their API more detailed.
  • Little bit expensive security options specially for startup companies.

All the features AWS Cognito offers gives the user the options they need without making it too complicated. Your customers will be happy. On the administration site usability is also great. After a small learning curve, you can setup Cognito for your usage

It is hard to pick just one. Access Auditor has dramatically improved our processes and saved us a ton of time. Also, their support is top-notch.

It is easy to configure, scale and integrate. However, the documentation is a bit confusing. Summing them up, I will go for 8 out of 10.

Alternatives Considered

Access Auditor

Even if you only use their Auditing/Access Certification tool and not their Identity Management/Password Management tools, you're still able to complete entitlement reviews for SOX or any other compliance requirements.

When compared to Okta, I would say Cognito is still not up to pace with Okta. However, I guess they are constantly updating their features and will soon come with the new features. I would say Cogntio provides a better interface than Azure.

  • ROI from Cognito comes in terms of developer velocity--you'll get logins and user identities up and running faster and more stably if you use Cognito. Once they're working, they'll keep working.
