  • Duo / Cisco Secure Access and by Duo
At the time I was using a similar product from Duo, they required a customer server to manage the SSO functionality. I believe this has changed now but when we selected Okta it was still the case. I believe the Duo MFA functionality is a bit better than Okta's and they include some good device fingerprinting info and policies which Okta does not. While you can mix and match MFA, I'd suspect many companies would not elect to do this as it might increase complexity and potentially introduce supportability issues.

I did not like the log-in that Perimeter 81 had us do every single time. It got really annoying. The Okta Identity Cloud doesn't make us log in every single time, and when we do log in, it's already secure so it's easy. Once we started using The Okta Identity Cloud, it cut the downtime I would spend looking for passwords and log-in info. That all happens in one easy click now.

While I wasn't involved in the official purchasing process of Okta, I would imagine that the scalability that Okta provides and usability would be a big differentiator in whether you were to utilize Okta over Azure AD for SSO purposes across a your user base.

Our time with the above-mentioned tool was really good, but [Auth0] is the perfect solution according to our needs. It helps us a lot in improving the manageability of our IT department and the efficiency of our users by allowing our users to access various programs with just a single login. It allowed us to concentrate on our key company objectives and allocate resources to items that will set us apart from the competition. Create what makes you stand out.

Auth0 is extremely easy to use; it is also quite affordable. After reading some blogs, documentation, and reviews, it seems to me that the authentication, authorization, and security that it offers is also superior to Microsoft Azure Active Directory and The Okta Identity Cloud, especially when the price point is taken into account.

During the proof of concept, the time required to integration Auth0 was substantially less than other products evaluated. While all products met the proof of concept requirements, Auth0 documentation and sales support provided an edge when selecting a product.

  • Duo / Cisco Secure Access and by Duo
We use Duo hand-in-hand with [The Otka Identity Cloud] and they work very well together. I would recommend using both to anyone that wishes to have a secure single sign-on experience. Dual authentication and [The Otka Identity Cloud]'s secure platform make sure I feel safe when I sign on, especially in a remote work environment.

Overall based on our evaluation, [The] Okta [Identity Cloud] was a better-suited solution for global deployment and provided the level of confidence for [an] Enterprise-scale [deployment] with integration to AD and other Cloud SaaS suites.

Great product and large user base, easier to integrate.
We used Auth0 to take care of single sign-on from all of our clients' auth domains. After initial development to integrate Auth0 with our systems, our client onboard has been very much simplified. The SSO integration becomes a configuration setting on Auth0, and identity to our internal account mapping (before we eventually get the auto-provisioning ;)

Auth0 is one of the best login solutions for any website or application. The pricing is more considerable than other similar software. It is easy to use and does not require much effort in deploying. However, the deployment process is not so simple for drag and drop websites or apps.

Auth0's documentation, framework support, large community, and overall developer experience make the cost trade-off worthwhile. Auth0's developer experience makes it significantly easier for our firm to quickly develop apps that require user accounts, even if we use an SPA or a more obscure framework like Cordova or Nativescript. While other solutions are an order of magnitude cheaper, at our scale and expected MAUs the premium is offset by lower development time.

Azure AD had better developer library support and documentation, but we weren't with Okta because it had more flexibility in how user tokens for OIDC could be generated. At the time, a few years ago (2017), Azure only allowed so many AD groups into the token but Okta didn't have that limitation.

TransferWise has used Google Single Sign On service and Amazon IAM capabilities, and I have used Microsoft Single Sign On and User Authentication services before in previous companies - Okta is simple to use and easy to integrate with other providers, compared to the alternatives - since they are focused on this area, they can deliver better user experience than large companies that try to sell their software productivity tools as a bundle.
