Likelihood to Recommend Well Suited B2C mobile and web apps with a high number of users. Cheaper and cost-effective. If the other pieces of the infra are already using AWS services like Lambda, S3, Pinpoint, etc. Not Suited For: Advanced use-cases (Biometrics based authentication) Email, and other MFA channels. For any use-cases needing SCIM. Customized flows of SSO, and MFA will need a layer on Lambda and other AWS services. Read full review
In the current digital world we are moving into, I would recommend F5 for all SMB to enterprise organizations. There are various models to pick from. This helps secure the environment and make the network robust to any sort of attacks. I am not able to think of any reason why one should not deploy or this device is less appropriate because nowadays every small company has application / ERPs. It is also worthwhile to note in case if all your apps are being deployed in the cloud by another service provider who provides you SAAS access, in that case, you can be at ease as securing these app falls on to the provider. However, should the budget be available I would recommend deploy this and enhancing your security.

For example, the expiration of a temporary password was configured but never communicated.

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.
