Overall Satisfaction with The Okta Identity Cloud

The whole organization uses The Okta Identity Cloud as an identity manager for all of our applications. It allows us to easily and securely make sure everyone in the org has the access necessary for the tools they use. On-board and off-boarding employees become extremely easy and there isn't a worry that individuals are storing passwords in a risky manner or creating 'weak' passwords.
  • Keep passwords secure
  • Make on-boarding and off-boarding easy
  • Centralize password management
  • UI interface not as clean as alternatives, like LastPass
  • Price, more expensive than some competitors
  • Amazing password security to prevent any breaches
  • Saves time and money on-boarding / off-boarding employees
  • Saves time not having to deal with managing passwords for the many applications needing access
The Okta Identity Cloud allowed my organization to centralize it's management of practically every application that we used. The different departments and roles were able to get different levels of access, based on their needs. As employees joined and left the company, it was very quick and easy to get their access added/removed, which typically would be a tedious process, often error prone and causing security vulnerabilities.
Not really. We didn't have a need to speak with their support.
The Okta Identity Cloud's uptime was in fact flawless. Throughout my entire time using The Okta Identity Cloud, I had never experienced an outage or been unable to authenticate into an application due to The Okta Identity Cloud being down. It served it's function extremely well and was very reliable. This allowed my organization to work effectively, and skip the common issue of not remembering a password.
The Okta Identity Cloud was very effective in being able to store passwords securely, and give access to various groups and roles in my organization. On-boarding and off-boarding employees worked very well. When compared to LastPass, The Okta Identity Cloud was more expensive and the UI wasn't as good, especially when using it across different operating systems and devices.
The Okta Identity Cloud worked great for password management and centralization. It was very easy for everyone in the organization, both technical and non-technical, to get it setup and use it. It is widely used by both small and large organizations alike, and is a very trusted option for identity management. However, while The Okta Identity Cloud is effective, I've found LastPass, to be cheaper and easier to use, and performs the same functionality.
