    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.

    PingOne from Ping Identity

    Really like [this] solution, it fits our requirements 100%. There are unlimited possibilities to extend the product, either by creating additional adapters or selectors. We really like the policy management level in PingFederate. It's extremely helpful when we can specify customer journey per many different requirements like user location, application type etc. As well, both StepUp and TopDown authentication flows were implemented [easily].

    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

    PingOne from Ping Identity

    • Based on open standards, we can use as much or as little of the Ping suite as we like, depending on which other technologies we've already implemented.
    • Continuous innovation and product enhancements have ensured their products continue to meet our rapidly evolving needs.
    • Ping Identity has been an outstanding partner, starting with the RFP process and continuing to this day, years after the sale. They are focused on our success at every level of the company and are highly responsive to our needs, issues, and product suggestions.

    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.

    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

    Easy to use; all UI's are user friendly and easy to learn.[The] possibility to use API is [a] big value as well. We really like integration with CyberArk; with it we can manage privileged accounts according to company standards without breaking any rules, and we can be 100% sure that only approved persons will have administrative access.

    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.

    Ping's support is willing and attentive, but if I am in a position to engage them I am often at a point where most of the usual support engineers would not be in a position to answer the questions I have. However, Ping has been more than willing to engage their product and development teams with our organization as we take advanced deployment and use case challenges to them.

    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.

    Two-way authentication and ease of use. I've used several applications that just email a link but never ask for a verification code. By entering the verification code you are sure that the site is safe, secured, and reliable. Using Ping, we can ensure no one other than you will access the application using your credential as you can log in only after you confirm using the verification code that you receive on your personal email or device.

    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.
