    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.

    Amazon AWS

    Well Suited
    1. B2C mobile and web apps with a high number of users.
    2. Cheaper and cost-effective.
    3. If the other pieces of the infra are already using AWS services like Lambda, S3, Pinpoint, etc.
    Not Suited For:
    1. Advanced use-cases (Biometrics based authentication) Email, and other MFA channels.
    2. For any use-cases needing SCIM.
    3. Customized flows of SSO, and MFA will need a layer on Lambda and other AWS services.

    Amazon AWS

    • Amazon Cognito has a bit of a learning curve. You need to learn its concepts and terminology. The documentation does not describe some topics comprehensively.
    • Some Console screens would benefit from improved search and filtering options.
    • When another AWS product (e.g., SageMaker) configures Cognito on your behalf, it is not clear what you're getting. For example, the expiration of a temporary password was configured but never communicated.

      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.

      Amazon AWS

      AWS Support overall is poor. Your main resources are trainings and the docs, and the docs can be very confusing. Using Cognito well involves having a developer learn it deeply and help support your team in understanding it. That said, Cognito's competitors also have dismal support and even worse documentation, so while this isn't a strength for Cognito it may still be the frontrunner here.

      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.
