Overall Satisfaction with The Okta Identity Cloud

OKTA Identity cloud is being used in our organisation for configuring SSO for SAAS applications, On - perm application and applications in our own data centre. We are using OKTA Identity system to manage the users in the directory which is the internal directory for our organisation. OKTA is being used for configuring Multi factor authentication to make sure the users who are from our org is using the applications.
  • Multi factor authentication.
  • Okta universal directory.
  • IP zone restrictions.
  • Okta Integration Network.
  • Agent based configuration for SSO.
  • Need more customisation.
  • Speed of deployment.
  • Easily understandable.
Okta provides Okta universal directory which is very much comfortable for organisations having multiple Directories managed. We can manage all directory in single location which is Okta universal directory. From this feature we can maintain only one SSO tool for entire organisation. This feature reduced the workload of managing life cycle management of the users in the organisation.
Okta gave the best certification platform to complete the certification without any malpractices. Which will make sure that no fake Okta professionals are being circulated in market. As Okta is growing up in the market there might be a chance for professionals who might have getting the certification by doing malpractices. This is restricted in the Okta certification exam.
As Okta is cloud based IDaaS solution, administrators don't need to bother about the application downtime, patching activity, certificate expiry, load balancing, patch update, new feature introducing, etc. Each and every detail is managed by Okta team itself. Which allowed us to concentrate on other development areas of IAM.
I worked on Ping Identity Platform already. So Ping platform is an on-prem based solution. We needed to make sure that the servers where the application is hosted is up and running always. Patching needs to completed based on the vendor release. Ping solution needs more manual work for the application to be enabled for SSO.
Okta will be used very well whenever the applications are available in OIN.
Okta have an option to manage or maintain different set of directory managed users in single place.
Okta MFA is very easy to understand from end user perspective.
Okta Admin need not to be a knowledgeable person in Okta tool. Whomever knows about SSO concepts can easily get started working on the tool.
