My organization uses the Okta Identity Cloud across all of our apps for ease of access. The ability to quickly access everything from a single tile page makes it easy to navigate and operate. Compared to other identity providers, I will always find Okta to be much more user friendly and easy to operate. Much easier to operate than sailpoint.

With respective to user interface and license cost, we thought The Okta Identity Cloud was better than other tools for use. Their customization of license was another reason for us to go with The Okta Identity Cloud over other tools.

Okta is the first of a kind for me and this organization. At this moment, we haven't even considered another provider. I am aware that other companies provide SSO options, such as Microsoft, but if something is working properly throughout your organization, why make a change? Okta just makes my day easier.

They were very similar in scope and application. Our IT team made the final call in moving forward with The Okta Identity Cloud as I believe the integration with The Okta Identity Cloud was more aligned with our current systems in place as well as our future systems roadmap. Thinking with integration in mind has been key to optimizing our relationship with The Okta Identity Cloud.

We have used Azure Entra ID which sometimes lacks compatibility with new SAAS apps and also not so easy to manage user access provisioning and deprovisioning like Okta. Also I believe managing sign-on policies are easy in Okta as comparison to Azure AD.

I was not involved in the initial decision to select The Okta Identity Cloud over other competing products. However since inheriting the solution, I have looked at other competing products such as Microsoft Authenticator and ManageEngine ADSelfServicePlus and have decided to stay with The Okta Identity Cloud as I am extremely pleased with the features, reliability, and security options it offers.

Okta was the most expensive choise between than, but still our best bet. This was caused because they were able to integrate with 90% of our software without any headache and 10% with some studies - this work would be higher and requires more working hours from our engineers if we opted to their competitors.

I have Exposure to Okta and SailPoint. And they go hand in hand. Where SailPoint manages the Identity Platform and Okta manages the Access management and Federated authentication. There is not such specific to compare. But for SailPoint you need infra, and Deep understanding of code and tool is required. On okta front its more user friendly

The Okta Identity Cloud is efficient when it comes to password reset, unlike other competitors who gave us lots of trouble syncing passwords we have reset to our web software applications.

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.

The industry wide performance and reviews of Okta already made it stand out from the competitors. The customisable pricing model helped us to choose from a variety of models as per our needs. The depth and breadth of features and functionalities covered by Okta made it a no-brainer to go for it.

  • Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Discontinued)
We had Azure Multi-Factor Authentication in the past and having The Okta Identity Cloud replace it was a night and day difference. Honestly, this is a difficult comparison since our Azure Multi-Factor Authentication was exactly that only for our users and ONLY did MFA. The Okta Identity Cloud does that for our employees and customers as well as SSO for them AND our PAM to name a few. It's not a stretch to say they are very different.
