Amazon Cognito

It's well suited for quick start of application, which needs to be integrated with multiple other applications. It may be not suited for applications which are already using high security in place, meaning if customers are already using OAuth, then I don't think this would be an effective solution.

  • SFI, allows you to connect and manage all your applications in one easy to use interface.
  • It has the ability to use many different authentication standards to fit all the different needs of the applications.
  • If the standard isn't supported it has the flexibility to create your own custom solution.

Cons

  • Maybe they can improve more on the grouping part.
  • All the users come under the same Cognito User Pool. If the IAM can be restricted to per group level of User Pools, then that would be really helpful.

  • Not really anything, but perhaps the price, but it is fully featured and robust.

Alternatives Considered

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.

We looked at Ping and some others, SFI was ideal because it did what we needed and we are a Salesforce shop.

Return on Investment

  • It has a very high positive impact. It reduces a lot of man-hours trying to develop and integrate with many other platforms.
  • I would appreciate it if there are additional IDPs added to Cognito.

  • The biggest return is on the auditing and ease of use for the users.
