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.

If you have an environment where there is heavy changes being made to your AD, then this is a great tool to have. Now, if your environment is being managed by one person and has very little change activity, then I would stick with searching the windows log files.

Cons
Amazon AWS
  • 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.

Support Rating
Amazon AWS
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.

They are very knowledgeable and willing to assist with any issue that may occur. We have not had to call support very often because they make sure there is a subject matter expert in place before concluding the implementation.

Varonis did a good job compared to the same things that StealthIntercept does. When it comes to configuring the reports within StealthIntercept, the configuration portion is easier. However, the web console in Varonis looked better and is a bit easier to navigate.
