Overall Satisfaction with OneLogin

Due to the multitude of sites that need to be accessed by its community members, Berklee decided to implement a web single sign-on solution. The solution aimed at serving multiple purposes:
  • Simplify access to the various application
  • Increase security by enabling the roll-out of two-factor authentication
  • Increase automation around provisioning and de-provisioning of accounts.
OneLogin was the best solution in terms of ease of implementation and maintenance, and the most cost effective. All of our community members eligible for accounts (employees, students, alumni, contractors) use the platform to authenticate to more than fifty (50) web-based applications.
  • Numerous predefined connectors: Those connectors to the most popular applications allow to have a quick start.
  • Easy integration with various directory solutions: This allows to quickly setup an existing set of users with no password change, whether they are managed in Active Directory, OpenLDAP, G-Suite
  • Availability of APIs: The APIs offered allow to manage users and users attributes and allow to have more flexibility to provision data to and from the platform.
  • Lack of administrative APIs for creating or setting up new connectors: This prevents the automated integration to federations and requires manual setup rather than discovery-based automated setup.
  • Customization of the interface: The potential configuration of the interface are still limited at the moment (logo, primary and secondary colors, background). This prevents the usage of the platform as a communication medium or to organize the space in a more standard fashion (for our institution)
  • OneLogin made it easier to roll-out new services to our Alumni population, increasing our engagement with our community
  • IT Operations now spends less time managing accounts and can focus on other tasks
With similar functionalities, OneLogin was the most cost effective solution. We also compared OneLogin to on prem open source solutions but we were worried about the management overhead that would be required by such systems. Cloud services like OneLogin were allowing to limit that overhead as there is almost no infrastructure to maintain
OneLogin is well suited for environments that are fairly standard and in which teams do not have a lot of technical expertise in the various single sign-on protocols. The setup and maintenance is very easy while providing a really robust service.

The lack of possible customization could make it less attractive for specific environments that do not have standards in their infrastructure.
