If your solution falls within their standard use case or you have Office 365 - then it makes total sense. If you need a lot of customization or have a really specific business process that causes you to deviate from the standard flow it usually makes more sense to create a custom solution

One Identity, by Quest
Frankly, it is suited both when someone is working from home or in office. There can be kids who would fiddle with the machine or in office, someone might do it knowingly or unknowingly. This added layer ensures that the user is a tad bit safer. The only problem is that, once you login, you don't get triggers for an entire day. I wish if they add a trigger after every hour or two. I know it would be annoying but at least my identity is secure.

Honestly, they are very similar as is much of their offerings. It really comes down to which ecosystem are you already invested in? It doesn't make a lot of sense to try and interop with every cloud vendor - pick one and use them. While there used to be substantial differences in the cloud platforms, they are at basic parity now

Bomgar is much easier to set up & there is only one step when connecting while Defender takes a few steps.
