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.

I 100% recommend Yubico for organizations that work with secure or confidential information. The use of 2-factor authentication should be a given: it protects information and assets (personal and organizational) and adds an additional layer of security. Yubico's security is demonstrably robust, and it integrates (sometimes with some finagling/legwork) with most 2FA platforms/logins. Additionally, the key itself is either a semipermanent unobtrusive attachment or a small key you can plug into the computer. I highly recommend Yubikeys for both personal and professional use.

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.

  • Unobtrusive use of USB-C key (semi-permanently in a laptop or computer port).
  • Excellent 2-factor authentication requiring interaction/presence of the physical key.
  • Integrates with platforms/password managers for personal and organizational use.

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.

  • Setup can be a little confusing for inexperienced users: documentation and step-by-step instructions will help ensure smoothe onboarding.
  • Specific implementations (like for Google) can be tricky. Fortunately, Yubico provides a lot of support / documentation on impelementation.

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

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

Yubico

I haven't used any other physical security devices previously. YubiKey and other tech giants like Google, Cisco, and RSA all offer some form of physical/hardware-based security, which is implemented at many workplaces. Yubico was selected for its comprehensive documentation, reputation of excellence, and reliability within the security community itself.

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.

  • Cost for implementation can be a bit high (per-key runs around forty dollars).
  • Keeping information and access secure is priceless and should be a part of any business.
  • Sleek/small/unobtrusive, which makes it stand out among other USB security options.
