Overall Satisfaction with The Okta Identity Cloud

The Okta Identity Cloud is used in our company for Single Sign On and for integration with any third party service where we use as SaaS which has a requirement for one of our employees to login to leverage the capabilities. Their mobile app and the user, application and authorization management that allows us to protect our company assets and ease of accessibility.
  • Simple SAML Integration
  • Many companies have OOTB integration with okta
  • Allow the ability to control/manage and manage SaaS apps within our company
  • Requires an internal team to manage/setup - expertise
  • Setup can be challenging - may require okta support
  • Once app is setup, it is associated with Role Groups - easy to deploy
  • SAML is straightforward
  • Ability to manage passwords and reset within the okta app
We were having issues with password resets and calls to our help desk. Many times this caused confusion and could be a challenge to train helpdesk staff to manage password resets across multiple apps if self service resets were not available. This centralized applications and allows our employees to simply login and access applications.
The Okta team is really supportive and provide great training. If we have any issues with onboarding an application, they have been very knowledgeable and able to help. I would suggest adding support as there are many different challenges with onboarding non-conforming vendor products. the team was willing to go the extra mile to make our implementation happen, and continue to support us moving forward.
The availability is making our company able to work from home more efficiently and make our team members mobile. As demands have shifted, it allows our teams to use BOYD and access company applications securely while in the office, on the road or mobile.
The Okta Identity Cloud had a wider breadth of functionality and had the ease of integration needed for our company to be successful at our SSO Implementation. for our mid size company, it was priced well and allowed us to make some steps forward to simplify our security infrastructure.
  • It is well suited for managing enterprise products
  • For having "one stop" for all applications
  • Easy Single sign on
  • Managing apps is an ongoing process - it is not setup one and done
