Pros
It's due to it's ease of use and wide variety of features that it offers, it is one of the best IAM tools and regarded as one of the best SSO solutions out there.
The Okta Integration Network is a great resource to see if an app / platform is supported. I also LOVE that they offer free training and certifications.
It does what it is supposed to do quickly and neatly which is Okta greatest strength.
Cons
The only trouble is if you forget your password to okta you essentially lose access to everything because it is all connected.
The only downside is the cost which is much higher as compared to its competitors.
I found set up was a little difficult. It may have been the way my account was initially set up but it was incredibly difficult to understand that it was set up incorrectly.

Product support is good. 4 out of 5.Ease of Use.API are readily available to integrate with other application.Maintaince is easy.

Pros

Ease to use and the API are readily available. The SSO part is so nice and you can use for multiple devices. one more feature that i like is Enable passwordless authentication into anything. admin work is simple here.

Cons

as of now we are using this software for good. not sure any problem we are facing with the same. Most of the time we are getting support from the OKTA team faster and the problem resolution/ turnaround time is good.

Needed but not easy to use

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

It is a way to secure passwords. Once you get the hand of it and set it up it is pretty usable.

Cons

It signs you out a lot which is a hassle. If you are not near your phone you get stuck with the 2 factor auth. I don't fully get how to use the Okta dashboard.

Enterprise grade and a pleasure to use!

Reviewed a month ago

Much better than competitors and cost effective to boot, we'll be sticking with Okta along with their several other happy customers

Pros

- Extremely secure- Support for multiple MFA methods- Okta Verify takes away the pain of entering codes and lets you allow sign ins with the push of a button- Extremely rich API support- Cost efficient- Takes away the need to remember passwords for individual applications- Excellent customer support

Cons

- UI feels a little dated, even after the recent refresh. Still intuitive, just not that pleasing to look at- Creating a scoped API key requires logging out and logging back in with reduced permissions

Outstanding software to utilize

Reviewed 14 days ago

It oversees SAML, Single Sign On, and other authentication methods. With less danger of password leaking, we can dramatically cut down on the time we invest logging into various platforms and products. It takes less training for new users and gives them fewer bookmarks to manage. I simply appreciated how easy it was to rapidly log into numerous applications using the same login credentials because it uses multifactor authentication. Additionally, it saves a lot of time and facilitates efficient work. As a cloud-based service, Okta contains dictionaries that list the users who have access to certain applications. Thus, it is safeguarding my privacy.

Pros

I would like it if Okta could make it simpler for other software suppliers to enable provisioning, as it greatly facilitates both the on-boarding and off-boarding of personnel as well as employee life cycle changes.

Cons

Organizations can swiftly use Okta at low overall cost and huge scale due to the service's online system. When I wanted to connect to my company VPN or internal tools, Okta offered the finest security for business tool logins. It offers the best login password process with automatic updates and a 6-digit password system.
