Overall Satisfaction with Okta

We have deployed Okta for the entire organization to simplify the login process for the apps we used, both in house and the Cloud. We have a mix of SAML and SWA apps. All users have really come to enjoy one place to go to login to corporate applications.
  • SSO via SAML is super easy
  • Integration with Active Directory (AD) makes managing the apps and access a cinch
  • The logging within the app is great, should any security or personnel issues arise
  • Always available.
  • Access any where on any device helps too.
  • We have expanded are use of the full provisioning with SaaS apps that support, which has increased the speed with which to users have access to apps.
  • MFA has been key to ensure a secure platform for our company
  • While not a specific Okta issue, I agree with a previous reviewer and would love to see how Okta could push SAML more into the market so more apps would be easier to integrate with.
  • At times, troubleshooting issues can be challenging. Engaging with support has helped get through those issues.
  • Increased employee launch (or termination) as they join the company
  • Scalability - as we add more apps, we just plug and play. No development work required.
We had an investment in Okta already, but we did look at Centrify. While Centrify is nice and capable, there wasn't enough reason to change solutions.
This app is good for any company managing SSO across multiple apps. Also, if you are company starting out, managing a user directory in Okta is the smart way to go (as opposed to Active Directory).

The only challenge is the DIY'er, where the investment has already been made. My suggestion is consider moving away from DIY, as building and maintaining will be costlier.

Using Okta

Its embedded and any change would be difficult. Plus our employees really like it.
