Overall Satisfaction with Okta

We recently deployed Okta for the entire organization to simplify the login process for the applications we use, both on-premise and in the cloud. It also solves the problem of single sign-on and mainly saves a lot of implementation time, deployment, and maintenance cost for hardware and software. It solves the issue of simplifying security and authentication in the whole organization.
  • Easy to navigate
  • A trusted tool used in most corporate environments
  • Simplifies corporate authentication with an added layer of security, I.E. the multi-factor authentication
  • Password Vault for Unix landscape is not easy to set up when compared to other SSO tools
  • Adds an additional layer of complexity if you have multiple forests/domains in the environment
  • It all depends upon the size of the organization but Okta is scalable to a mid-sized organization.
  • We have seen unauthorized access is blocked and after Okta implementation, any suspicious activity is reported as well as recorded.
Okta works well and is used in many of the utility companies for securing their environment. The Okta UI is simple and easy to navigate and integrates well with most corporate applications.

It is suited everywhere due to the number of cyber attacks and malicious attempts to steal identities or information. The additional layer of security and integration with corporate apps leaves no room for hackers. It helps to track devices where the user logs in and simplifies the security audit procedure.
