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.

Kedar Mendhurwar C.

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.

David F.

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.

Hands Down The Best SSO/Adaptive MFA Solution on the Market

Reviewed 3 years ago

We have been more than pleased with Okta. It makes signing into a bunch of different applications so much easier and only having to remember one password. Without having any prior knowledge with SAML, being able to set up new applications was still very simple and straightforward.

Pros

Okta has simplified everything for us. The process of setting up applications is pretty straight forward, and the number of applications that are supported is amazing. The adaptive MFA is really neat so we can easily balance security and usability to meet just about everyone's needs. The amount of work we have to do to onboard a new user has been reduced drastically through the support of SCIM and APIs. They continue to innovate and bring out new features that further enhance the usability and security of Okta.

Cons

Only minor issues with Okta, primarily being chose of wording for some of the settings that lead to some confusion on when Okta sessions expire.

No need to remember a password or ever log in again!

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I use this software for a company I work with and love how I don't ever have to remember passwords - AND how it logs me in automatically. I'm a man who loves things to be easy, and Okta removes those extra clicks of having to select my username and click submit (I'm looking at you, LastPass).

Cons

When I'm logged into Okta, it automatically selects my credentials for me. So for sites that I have lots of user names for, it overrides my ability to choose one. I then have to open an incognito window, and pull my un/pw from LastPass - which is a pain.

Great MFA

Reviewed 3 months ago

great that it doesn't disclose what you are authenticating

Pros

Most banks and services use mfa, and 2factor. but they identify who / what you are authorizing. Okta doesn't. If you have criminals trying to access your logins. Okta gives 1 major step of security above the other. s

Cons

nothing, it's fine. it ticks all the boxes for what i need.
