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.

WatchGuard AuthPoint

WatchGuard Authpoint works well in a small or large organization as the user creation can be manually achieved or synced with AD. The platforms it can work with are pretty vast and they haven’t tried to reinvent the wheel. Things like radius and saml are utilized, which is clearly not trying to break away from what’s already available with most vendors. So more time is spent using the product rather than trying to work out how it will integrate with other systems.

Pros

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.

WatchGuard AuthPoint

  • It's a very simple to activate and use multi-factor solution. With the addition of the new hardware tokens, it is accessible to all companies.
  • Branding and management of the solution online sticks to the same WatchGuard experience and familiarity staff and clients know.
  • Add very simple ways to secure systems and give a great reporting function to keep an eye on what’s occurring across multiple systems.

Cons

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.

WatchGuard AuthPoint

  • There have been some issues we've had with deployment, for instance, removing a PC from the domain then does not let you log in as a local user - this is more of an inconvenience considering this application should be removed prior to domain removal (lesson learned).
  • Have noticed some times the push requests are slow to come through and the timeout period needs to be adjusted to make sure you can log in - not huge impact.

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.

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.

In general, the support for WatchGuard AuthPoint has been very good. I've only had one subpar support case which involved setting up AuthPoint with SSL VPN as the technician wasn't able to explain clearly what he meant in regards to ports in use.

Alternatives Considered

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
JJ McMahon | TrustRadius Reviewer

WatchGuard AuthPoint

Although some of the applications have overlapping features, none of the other management and or security solutions that we have used or evaluated are similar enough to AuthPoint to draw any meaningful comparisons.

Return on Investment

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.

  • Objective 1: Protect Office 365: ROI is negative -- spent too many hours troubleshooting issues and ended up removing from the client's O365 Tenant.
  • Objective 2: Protect Windows Logon -- ROI is good here. Easy setup and configuration. Functions as desired.
