Defender is appropriate for access a company's environment when not on site. It may not be appropriate for users that are only working on site.

Okta Workforce Identity

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

Defender

  • Fast to connect
  • Easy to use
  • Doesn't slow down my computer

Okta Workforce Identity

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

Okta Workforce Identity

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

Defender

  • Defender allows me to connect to the clients environment
  • Without Defender I would not be able to support my client

Okta Workforce Identity

  • The IT resources were high before Okta. Okta helped us bring those costs down.
  • Okta has helped us be more secure and thus helped us with our exposure to unauthorized account access.
  • Industry adoption of Okta has made it easy to interface with other third party SaaS and services.
