Overall Satisfaction with Okta

We are using Okta as our primary identity solution. It is our master service directory for our users as opposed to Active Directory. We use active directory but it gets its information from Okta. It does this for our entire organization. It assists in too many ways to account for here but here are some of the highlights. We use it for application access and deprov. With the right integrations, you can assign licensing with it. We sync attributes with Okta. We leverage the Okta API to manage groups and generate user account reports. There are so many ways that Okta assists our company. It's really amazing. We utilize IWA so when our users are on our network, they are automatically signed into the Okta portal using their Okta/Windows credentials. It's really amazing what all you can do.
  • User account creation and deprovisioning.
  • Application access and management.
  • Single Sign On so user accounts don't have to be created and removed manually.
  • Can't delete deprovisioned accounts.
  • We have streamlined so many processes and reduced the time to complete many tasks for IT.
  • We have automated many tasks to remove the issue with human error.
  • We have opened up a ton of functionality with the application integrations that are available.
  • The feature sets for Okta allow for more creative and diverse solutions to existing issues.
  • User experience has benefited greatly from the Single Sign On experience.
Okta and Ping are similar but the future has been laid out for us by Okta and we believe that that is the correct path for our company and IT team to follow. We try to make sure that we are making progress that we can apply to everything we do and not limit ourselves. We feel that Okta gives us the best chance to do this.

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.
