    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.

    The Okta Identity Cloud

    In our organization, we use quite a lot of tools and systems to help our clients. If you have the same situation in the company, this tool is very well suited for you. Having Okta Identity Cloud manage and store those tools and systems helps us do our tasks more efficiently.

    Pros

    Amazon Cognito

    • Strong integration with React.js and client-side applications
    • Easy to bridge Cognito identities with the rest of the AWS ecosystem
    • Easy to store user profile data directly in Cognito rather than having to build additional services/endpoints
    • Easy integration with AWS Lambda to extend and add sophistication to the service

    The Okta Identity Cloud

    • Okta provides us a one-stop Sign in for all of our business needs.
    • Okta is a very useful platform for managing all the users or employees in an organization for user provisioning within the org for access management and also externally.
    • Okta is such a simple SSO system, and I love when my work organizations use it. The ability to have a hub of all my frequently used tools, plus one login for all of them, takes a lot of mental load off me as an employee.

    Cons

    Amazon Cognito

    • 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.

    The Okta Identity Cloud

    • Backup policy! As of today, Auth0 does not provide a centralized way of backing up the information and users in the tenants. From a B2B perspective, this could be a great tool, because it would simplify the backup and data recovery process for the Auth0 customer
    • Import users as a strategy that creates a new user is weird, from a Data Recovery perspective
    • No dashboards to monitor the status of logins, users and data flow between web application and Auth0. This coud be a great tool to customize by our needs, as a way to visualize data and create reports

    Okta has a passion to provide secure and scalable identity solution. Their passion has come across as advocacy in a way that has deepened my knowledge of the field of authentication. I took identity for granted before but after seeing features such as external authentication I know that Okta can enable my business to reach new heights

    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

    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.

    There isn't a clear method to get a hold of support when trouble arises if you're on their standard plan. You can file a support ticket and they generally are responsive. I've often been able to find similar questions to the questions I've had when it comes to support in their ticket history, however, some have been closed without a satisfactory conclusion for the original poster.

    Amazon Cognito

    They are ideal tools to create a secure and unique login experience for our applications. Thanks to its API authorization, Amazon Cognito ensures connections to applications that are secure.It is easy to use and provides easy access to files and applications that you need to complete your goal.

    The Okta Identity Cloud

    We had Azure Multi-Factor Authentication in the past and having The Okta Identity Cloud replace it was a night and day difference. Honestly, this is a difficult comparison since our Azure Multi-Factor Authentication was exactly that only for our users and ONLY did MFA. The Okta Identity Cloud does that for our employees and customers as well as SSO for them AND our PAM to name a few. It's not a stretch to say they are very different.

    Return on Investment

    Amazon Cognito

    • ROI is great for Amazon Cognito Overall.
    • It is included in the AWS Free Tier so you can use it for a good amount without paying, so the software can be tested beforehand.
    • The paid pricing is also affordable, so a positive impact on ROI.
    DR. RAKESH TRIPATHI | TrustRadius Reviewer

    The Okta Identity Cloud

    • We have addressed a major risk with MFA/SSO on the majority of our apps very quickly - 2-3 months to implement completely.
    • Added security without adding very much friction to end user.
    • After a year or less Okta is a main part of our zero trust initiative.
