For smaller companies Atlassian crowd is great, however, we grew to a size where we were getting rate limited so we needed to scale up. What we ended up migrating to was the non-cloud solutions for Atlassian products. This allowed us to hit our scale without being rate limited. However, at a smaller scale, this product would work great.

Okta is great for organizations that need a unified, single sign-on application for various websites and internal applications. Also, if you need 2FA, Okta Workforce does it very well. I couldn't see a scenario where Okta wouldn't be appropriate, as it integrates directly into your current authentication solution, whether that be Active Directory, LDAP or some other form. It also could be the sole provider of authentication if needed.

Pros

Atlassian Crowd

  • The ability to Govern Group Permissions for synchronizing users into Crowd, keeping only the users you want in Crowd and keeping unwanted access out. Ability to define authentication permissions and having automated group definitions for new users.
  • Integration into our existing systems, as it becomes merely an extension rather than a separate entity. It works seamlessly with almost all of our systems.
  • Always up to date with compliance and security requirements of the organization. The ability to audit is very key. It's surprising how many systems don't have a fully supportive auditing system.

  • The adaptive MFA is really flexible to each organization's needs. Being able to adjust MFA requirements based on location and application helps protect the data that needs to be protected, but allows for ease of use for other applications that don’t require as stringent protections.
  • Multiple levels of administrative rights allow organizations to distribute responsibilities to different teams and allowing them to assist in the administration. Examples are an IT Help Desk Team and an Application Security Team.
  • Set up is actually quite simple. Some applications do require a little more assistance, but for the most part, its applications are easy to integrate.

Cons

Atlassian Crowd

  • We did not get the speed that we needed vs. hosting our own local atlassian product

  • I didn't like the process for installing extensions

  • Okta offers a few different pricing tiers but for what I'm using it for the price could be better. Since they offer different pricing tiers it's just a matter of matching up what you need the product to do and what you're willing to pay for.

They've shown that they're committed to maintaining a great core product while expanding to be more all-encompassing. They've released the first version of Okta Mobility Management, which is a completely different approach to a traditional MDM-type solution. While we don't use it yet, we're looking forward to how they develop it. It's a good example of a company that's still really growing, but doing it well.

Some of its features are great and some are slightly complex and not easy without vendor support.

Their support team has always been extremely responsive and more than willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. They've done screen shares between our help desk staff and end users to work through issues. They are quick to respond and genuinely care about getting issues resolved. Couldn't be happier.

Alternatives Considered

Atlassian Crowd

In most ways, I preferred Duo Security as it offered a better 2-factor authentication method, and Crowd is definitely better than just having to rely on Active Directory. I have always been of the mind to have a centralized server that sits between your active directory (azure or on premise) and the systems that you integrate it with via LDAP or similar protocols. It would surprise a lot of people to see how many organizations do not secure their active directory or LDAP connections

Okta and Ping are similar but the future has been laid out for us by Okta and we believe that that is the correct path for our company and IT team to follow. We try to make sure that we are making progress that we can apply to everything we do and not limit ourselves. We feel that Okta gives us the best chance to do this

Return on Investment

Atlassian Crowd

  • We ended up moving off of it pretty quickly
  • It helped us realize that we needed to host our own solution
  • The product itself was functional but it just didn't suit our scaling needs.

  • Absolutely positive impact.
  • No longer must you sign on with user names and passwords when accessing different sites within the same network.
  • The product could use a better manual to help guide through the site easier without having to guess and hope.
