Considered Both Products
CyberArk Workforce Identity
Chose CyberArk Workforce Identity
Centrify offered us more for our money by being more than just an SSO platform. There were several other features included such as MDM and MFA. This started other initiatives for us and felt the other solutions we evaluated would not have been able to provide.
Chose CyberArk Workforce Identity
We reviewed Okta and OneLogin while looking at Centrify for our ticketing solution SSO partner. When doing so we looked at it from the aspect of if we wanted to roll this out where we could see the use cases for it and initially it would be in a couple departments then branch …
Chose CyberArk Workforce Identity
Centrify provided both SSO support as well as Mac support; we needed both. Other products had one or the other, but not both.

This made choosing Centrify a no-brainer as we didn't have to have a wide variety of integrations to do and vendors to manage.
Chose CyberArk Workforce Identity
I think they are quite similar and don't have enough knowledge about one over another.
Chose CyberArk Workforce Identity
Seemed to be the best in breed and the one with deeper Mac integration on the short roadmap. As an Apple Distinguished School, this is obviously very critical to us. Very easy to set up and it has a deep pre-canned application pool for already deployed apps. Very easy for …
Chose CyberArk Workforce Identity

During our evaluation process, Centrify could show in the PoC that they are very flexible and open minded to our ideas. An application integration which was not part of the product catalog has been integrated for free. Furthermore the whole package compared to the …

Chose CyberArk Workforce Identity
Centrify's pricing was much better than their competitors. They also offered a better sign-in/multi-factor experience for our users when doing pilot testing. Their product also included other features like Mobile Device Management that was a nice add-on.
Chose CyberArk Workforce Identity
We started off using ADFS from Microsoft, which took most of a day to get fully functional and nearly a week to get fully optimized. The documentation was inconsistent with ADFS and there was no real support without opening a Microsoft Premier Support ticket. At the time, if …
Chose CyberArk Workforce Identity
Centrify offers many more features and much better control.
Chose CyberArk Workforce Identity
OneLogin and Okta provide similar experiences, but OneLogin is less mature than Centrify. Their Mac and Windows management suites are still in a beta phase are cannot be deployed en masse to our user base. Okta is more expensive and does not have the security compliance. …
Chose CyberArk Workforce Identity
To be honest, all four products were fairly similar in much of the architecture and functionality. We found that Centrify offered a bit more in terms of user acceptance, ease of administration, reporting and MDM capabilities.
The Okta Identity Cloud
Chose The Okta Identity Cloud
Okta single sign-on provided better functionality with a higher variety of directory integration that was important for our particular organization with multiple user directories being accessed by various departments.
Cost was another factor for our selection as some other …
Chose The Okta Identity Cloud
Okta has more robust support for Office 365 than Centrify (which we previously used), and it is easier to configure and administrate. It is cloud-based and easier to manage than Microsoft ADFS. It is similar to OneLogin and Ping but we've found the pricing and support options …
Chose The Okta Identity Cloud
I selected Okta for its robustness of product as well as the clear record of security breaches, which some of its competitors do not have. Ease of use and reliability of the product are things that are unmatched by its competitors.
Chose The Okta Identity Cloud
Centrify solves several problems in our organization. First, it helps improve our security by creating a secure, easy to use user authentication service across applications that would have previously required separate login credentials. RSA- In a corporate setting I feel this …
Chose The Okta Identity Cloud
We had an investment in Okta already, but we did look at Centrify. While Centrify is nice and capable, there wasn't enough reason to change solutions.

Cyberark
Centrify is a great solution for anyone looking to start using Office 365. It is also a great solution for anyone wanting to provide their users with an SSO solution using OAUTH, Federation, or SAML for any hosted service. If you are looking to use Centrify for MDM but you aren't using a hosted/hybrid email solution such as Office 365, there are better on-premise options that should be explored.

I would definitely suggest this tool to my colleagues. When it comes to single sign to integrate all our applications under one umbrella, this will be the tool to go for sure. In our company, when we were moving our applications to the cloud one by one, we wanted one tool that could serve as a platform for all the applications with one password and with enhanced multi factor authentication and we choose The Okta Identity Cloud. When it comes to SAP, integration with The Okta Identity Cloud was a little tedious.

Cons
Cyberark
  • Occasionally, I get logged out of Gmail, sometimes in the middle of an email. I'm not sure why it happens, but I think it has something to do with timing out. Which is strange because I'm on email all day. Not sure why.

  • The user interface of Okta is basic and needs improvement. There's some learning curve for new users.
  • One time integration effort is high for the initial setup. Took us around 3 weeks.
  • Okta times out pretty quick making us login multiple times in the day.

Centrify is central to creating efficiency and safety for our clients and internally. To remove it would cause a massive disturbance in the lives of our employees and our clients.

Okta has a passion to provide secure and scalable identity solution. Their passion has come across as advocacy in a way that has deepened my knowledge of the field of authentication. I took identity for granted before but after seeing features such as external authentication I know that Okta can enable my business to reach new heights

Okta
The Okta Identity Cloud advertises 4 9's of reliability and I would go as far to say that it may even do better than that. As a true Global organization that operates in just about every region of the world, we have yet to have an issue with The Okta Identity Cloud that has impacted our business operations.

Performance

Okta
The Okta Identity Cloud performance is very good and there is never any reports from the user community or from the IT administrative team of slow response or sluggishness. In addition, integrations with other systems does not slow them down and everything works seamlessly. The only other feedback is that once in a while there is a slight delay in receiving a second factor on a mobile device but this is likely due to a phone endpoint issue and not the The Okta Identity Cloud service.

Support Rating
Cyberark
The support staff thus far has been very helpful. At times I feel they are driving the process forward without my intervention or constant reminder, which is nice to have in a company for a change. Most support seems to be a hassle but so far Centrify appears to treat your project as their own project.

Okta
There isn't a clear method to get a hold of support when trouble arises if you're on their standard plan. You can file a support ticket and they generally are responsive. I've often been able to find similar questions to the questions I've had when it comes to support in their ticket history, however, some have been closed without a satisfactory conclusion for the original poster.

Okta
Okta was the most expensive choise between than, but still our best bet. This was caused because they were able to integrate with 90% of our software without any headache and 10% with some studies - this work would be higher and requires more working hours from our engineers if we opted to their competitors.

Being a cloud native application, The Okta Identity Cloud is extremely scalable and easy to setup. By integrating into existing directories and applications via standard techniques and protocols, it is very easy to both initially setup and add additional users as required. Once all the necessary integrations are setup, it's a simple rinse and repeat process to onboard additional users (which can be automated with imports as well)
