Overall Satisfaction with Okta

Okta is being used in my company as an identity and access management solution. SSO and user life cycle management with adaptive MFA have been implemented.
  • SSO - over 50 applications with single sign-on implementation have helped us reduce the cost and password fatigue issues.
  • Life cycle management - Implementing LCM process for more than 10 applications, Okta handles the provisioning and de-provisioning of users in these systems.
  • Adaptive MFA - Advanced security with adaptive MFA and external threats have been reduced.
  • Okta lacks access governance, user access certifications and segregation of duties.
  • Full life cycle management with multi level approval is missing in the tool.
  • Role based access is limited and notification and escalation process is missing.
  • Good cost savings by reducing help desk calls for password management.
  • LCM automation has helped manual action in provisioning and deprovisioning processes.
  • [It's a] really cost-effective SSO solution, for the number of applications the company has been able to implement SSO.
Okta has the best dashboard for navigation and is very end-user friendly. Easy to navigate and configure applications and SSO and a very effective way of managing end-user issues.
SSO-wise it is the best product in terms of end-user experience; [it's a] seamless process for the end user to access all application integrated with Okta with the click of the chicklet displayed on the dashboard.
Okta is the best cost-effective tool for single sign-on and user life cycle management. It has very good reporting and auditing feature and is open to integrations by exposing the API. Adaptive Multi-Factor authentication is top notch and highly advised. The admin roles give a good distinguishing factor for controlling user access with certain capabilities to do only certain tasks. Identity Governance is lacking in Okta; it lacks user access certification and also segregation of duties.
