  • An organization who needs a way of managing their entire user lifecycle.

Okta
Basically, there are whole lot of Applications in OKta Integration Network. So whenever you want to integrate those , you are just few steps away. More understandable rules and policies . OKtA is best suited for Single sign on federated authentication. There are options Like Just in Time provision So as soon as user is there in Source you can provision it with no wait

Okta
  • 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.

Okta
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

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

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's Threat Insight adds an extra layer of security which gives it an edge over its competitor and is an early entrant in this market. It has a well-established track record which makes it much more reliable.
