Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

If an organization is looking for a good comprehensive identity management/governance suite that is easy to implement, CA identity manager may be a good/robust product. It is best to understand specific use case for your organization and try out the product before a final purchase decision as is the case with all sw products.

The Okta Identity Cloud

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

Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

  • It has complete identity management and governance capabilities equipped with a simple, intuitive user experience and helps simplify processes such as user access requests and access certifications. This in turn helps in improved productivity and user satisfaction.

The Okta Identity Cloud

  • 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

Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

  • Bringing on new users and removing existing user when new employee/contractors join or leave an organization can be improved by linking directly to HR module.
  • The slightly complicated GUI makes drill down difficult for a new user.

The Okta Identity Cloud

  • 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

Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

The final contenders were CA and Oracle - Oracle was tedious to implement and maintain while on the other hand CA was easy to implement and maintain and came at a much lower price.

The Okta Identity Cloud

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

Layer7 Identity Suite (formerly CA Identity Suite)

  • For us, it was a fairly easy implementation over 60 day period that provided ROI fairly quickly
Shiv Shivakumar | TrustRadius Reviewer

The Okta Identity Cloud

  • 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.
