Okta Workforce Identity

Okta is great for companies that are needing to get a handle on the number of apps they have, users assigned to those apps and licensing of apps. Okta is great if you have a bunch of apps that you would really like to have an easier method of users tracking their login info. Okta is great for people looking to streamline account creation. If you have limited applications and a fairly traditional user base, you may see some pushback. If you don't have complete buy-in from upper-level management, you may see some pushback.

Mobile device management, email management, content locker and workplace one feature like this AirWatch is one of the top solutions in enterprise mobility. Security and compliance, remotely data wiped and passcode protection and many more policies make AirWatch more trustworthy. AirWatch is a top solution as of now since the last couple of years in enterprise mobility. There are some issues for AirWatch Inbox like applying compliance policies, compatibility with different flavors of Android make n model. AirWatch is releasing patches every quarter but it has bugs and they will try to resolve it in next patch but some issues are still pending since ages and no one has entertaining it now.

Pros

Okta Workforce Identity

  • Okta has a huge library of verified applications. This library of verified applications translates to less headaches for you when it comes to integrating a new application. It also has the unforeseen bonus of acting as an identity app store. When we are evaluating applications we will look to see if they're already Okta verified which can give us a little more insight into the integration process.
  • Okta is able to provision users you choose from your Active Directory environment and create them in the app that allows provisioning. Salesforce is one example of an app that allows provisioning. In one deployment I was able to create hundreds of new users and in one fell swoop.
  • Okta offers some of the best support and training of any product I've seen. During the Heartbleed incident they actually called me to let me know none of my applications were affected.

Cons

Okta Workforce Identity

  • It'd be nice to see the dashboard be more configurable on the user end. I'd like to organize my applications by which ones I use most. There's some on there that I don't use at all and I'd like to be able to hide them.

  • Web Console GUI. The GUI is a little outdated compared to other MDM providers like Meraki, and can be slow at times.
  • Overlapping Profiles. I wish there was a GUI interface to show similar profiles that are being appiled to the same user groups, or a best practices intervention that can show me if there is a better way to layout my profiles.
  • AirWatch Mobile Apps. I would rather have my employees utilize Google Chrome or Firefox on their mobile devices, but can't because they need to access internal content via the MAG. It would be nice if AirWatch could integrate these two items together. All of their mobile apps are sluggish too. Users complain that the Content Locker is not friendly to work with, but on the admin side of things it's great.

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.

We've used it for 3 years and our contract is up later this year. We own the licenses, but we would have to either renew cloud services or bring the services in-house and install on servers here. We may want to see what's new in the marketplace that could be just as useful and cost effective.

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

It works well for our environment and what we're using it for. It actually does more than we're currently utilizing, but I believe our needs will change in the near future and we could utilize more features.

Just in the past few weeks our staff has had several issues with the website. It is either taking a long time to load anything or we are not able to get in at all. This is very frustrating when you are trying to manage and enroll users. It was down 2 days in a row just this past week. Not good!

Went over the availability just a minute ago on the last rating. Don't use the reporting too much but will likely begin that soon. Integration with Active Directory doesn't seem to bog either system down.

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.

They're usually very good. I've talked to any number of techs from level one to level 3. They all seem pretty knowledgeable about the product and how to support it.

Have your organizational structure and heirarchy outlined. This helps when you are ready to create OU's and subs in AirWatch.

Alternatives Considered

Okta Workforce Identity

LastPass is also used in our org but for different purposes. Okta gives more control to the IT department where LastPass gives more control to the user. Ultimately, Okta was a better solution to allow the IT department to scale and keep control over software access over time. LastPass doesn't have as much control there.

AirWatch is the top dog when it comes to Mobile Device Management is my opinion. The granularity of the controls in the console, the vast amount of features available to control Android devices, and their custom application wrapping features are top notch. I think all of the other MDM providers are playing catch-up, and some are moving quickly. For me, the security controls AirWatch has in-place for the web console is one of the biggest advantages they have over their competitors

It is really scalable. They love to have more users as you pay by the license. They are great in this regard.

  • Negative only. Server infrastructure is 300% larger than our other MDM onsite.
  • Airwatch required a team of 12 to support, versus our other MDM of 3 employees.
