  • Auth0 Platform

Overall Satisfaction with The Okta Identity Cloud

Auth0 is being used for the authentication process. There are several websites and applications that need a ready-to-use authentication platform and Auth0 was selected. It's better to let experts managed the authentication process and our clients can focus on the business logic, this way they don't lose time on something already made.
  • It's an already created Authentication Platform
  • No more thinking about implementing the login/logout process
  • Can use other method of authentication besides user/password
  • There should be more examples how to put the functionality to work on already made web apps
  • More easy to use second factor auth
  • Our platform is more secure using Auth0
  • Our time was well invested on creating the app and not the login/logout logic
  • The user are happier with a ver straight forward sign up and login process
Okta is very similar to Auth0, but we got some references that used Auth0 so we decided for that, most because it was recommended.
With Amazon Cognito was the same, there were not experience with any of these before so we went with Auth0 as first experience and stayed with it.
For any websites or web app that's needs an authentication process, you can rely on Auth0 to managed that. No more thinking about how to managed the login process, how to offer several options to login nor to think about the logout process, managing the session, etc. Auth0 can do all that for you.

Configuring The Okta Identity Cloud

The configurability is more than enough, you have a lot of options to work with it. We used in a very basic manner but it seams quiet powerful to do a lot more. You just have to experiment and work your way through all the options it has to offer.
