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.

  • As such I do not find any major things as cons. However they can improve the documentation.
  • Sometimes additional customisation increases complexity. Most of those advanced features are not used frequently.

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.

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.

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.

Return on Investment

Access Auditor

  • Strong customer focus
  • Overall cost
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Amazon Cognito

  • Amazon Cognito has had a positive impact on our business by allowing us to develop services that require user sign-up and sign-in more rapidly. Not only do we not need to build or maintain these features, but Cognito's implementation is also better than what we would be justified in building ourselves.
  • Amazon Cognito makes user management easy. This reduces the time we have to spend supporting users. Non-technical product managers can even use the AWS Console to manage users without requiring support from developers.
  • Amazon Cognito is likely more secure than what would be built in-house; a portion of our attack surface is now managed by Amazon.
