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

Pros

Azure is a very good cloud platform, their UI is really amazing and they have great customer support, always on hand to provide support.
The AAD is a great and excellent feature that allows you to manage your organization users, computer etc in cloud. The hybrid feature also allows you easily manage your existing on prem servers.
Ease of deployment and support from Microsoft is key to a successful deployment in AAD.

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.

Cons

If we have an outage and can't conenct to Azure AD as has happened in the past, we lose access to other systems such as Office, Microsoft Teams etc. This can obviously lead to productivity issues.
With the dizzying array of permissions available, it might be difficult to determine which one(s) to apply for a specific use case.
Azure AD keeps improving each day and Microsoft has yet to fail in this area. I have not seen yet a con in this ssoftware.

Not sure we will keep this product

Reviewed 4 years ago

We use Okta every day for many applications. For the most part, it simply set it and forget it. HOWEVER, they are not very Small Business friendly. Contacting and working with Contracts and Support require a lot of effort and often with minimal results.

Pros

Active Directory integration, GSuite Integration, a lot of established apps for integration are available through their Add an App page

Cons

Support is slow, and prices are high. When integrated apps are updated by the app vendor, it often just breaks in Okta. They don't seem to be proactive on many of their supported apps.

Great Tool in Any Enterprise

Reviewed 10 years ago

Okta has been a great addition to our enterprise. It is a great service for Single Sign On and Identity Management. Before Okta, many of our end users have had issues with passwords in the many different apps we use which would resort to many IT tickets. Now, our password reset tickets have dropped drastically and once the users have learned how to use Okta, they are very happy.

Pros

- Easy SAML Integration with Okta verified apps - Active Directory Integration - Remote password resets - Password management for all apps - Reporting and auditing

Cons

- Some apps aren't Okta verified making it more difficult to implement SAML but I see this changing in time - Occasional Syncing issues

OKTA is a great tool which saves time and money

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

I like that it bring the internet applications like ADP and others to a Single sign on environment linked to your Active Directory. Having that means users can add approved applications for business or personal use and have them easily secured via AD

Cons

the setup was harder than they let on, however it does work as promised. The application required a small application to be installed on servers to establish the sync with the OKTA sites. I can only get it successfully installed on one server so there is no redundancy. I also feel like their constant barrage of emails about updates is a bit excessive.

Okta has a robust suite of SAML integrated apps

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Okta is an IT focused tool, with a very robust suite of SAML capable apps. The team constantly adds new features such as Device Trust and adaptive authentication. We are most excited for Device Trust (which integrates with your MDM to enforce enrollment by acting as a gateway to your corporate apps) and passwordless authentication. Okta’s Active Directory integration synchronizes profile and group membership to Okta to manage access to AWS applications (and any other web apps). Our Active Directory connector is one of our most achievements — there’s no VPN, no firewall modifications, no need for dedicated hardware and built-in high availability.

Cons

Some of the "apps" in the Okta catalog are actually using password warehousing, instead of SAML, so it's important to pay attention to the details! Okta acts as a Directory Service.

Centralize authentication and authorization for cloud service

Reviewed 4 years ago

We use Okta for single sign-on and security purpose for all publish internal and external sites. We integrate many different services into Okta like ServiceNow, AWS, Webex, Splunk... We use Active Directory to assign the user role to have their permission access for Services with a suitable role.

Pros

Okta support integrate with hundred popular software including cloud services like AWS, AppDynamics or on-premise. With Okta is well integrate with Active Directory to assign user's access right for Applications base on their group or role instead of detail access for each Application. Okta displays all of the apps that our staff have permission to access. Good support on both Webform and Mobile App.

Cons

Okta works great and I almost do not have any complaint about it just it does not support for Azure so we have to use a different tool for Azure authentication and its user interface is too simple so hard for manage when the user has a large number of access Services

Helpful and robust identity management software

Reviewed 2 years ago

The Okta platform's interaction with Microsoft Active Directory is one of its better features, in my opinion. Since practically everything in our organization currently uses AD, Okta seamlessly connects and assists us in managing granular user identities. We can automate a lot of the onboarding and off boarding processes thanks to this, which saves time.

Pros

Okta offers a straightforward, easy-to-use, yet effective SSO protection cover for all business or work related logins. With okta verification, no trespassers or unauthorized individuals can log in or access my workspace or data. It increased security and verification by one level. I enjoy how easily I can access all of my application in one location. I also find that to be ok. I have security and privacy thanks to Okta.

Cons

It doesn't work well mobile devices; I'm having some trouble using the Okta lifecycle Management platform on my phone; maybe, this problem will be fixed soon. If it gave slightly easier configurations and substantially more customization choices, the user interface would be greatly enhanced.

Single sign-on done right

Reviewed 5 years ago

We were trying to solve a ubiquitous problem - how to use cloud/saas services within an enterprise and keep control of the authentication to them all. Okta gives us a centralized place to manage those passwords, automates the integration of Active Directory authorization and authentication, and it also helps employees discover what services are available to us.

Pros

Have you ever heard someone with this "great" idea? "I'm going to make a webpage that has all your links. When you click them, it'll authenticate for you". It sounds great, but in reality it's extremely hard to do. Securely storing passwords, integration with enterprise systems, centralized management of the lists of links, etc. And, if you do one thing wrong, you can compromise the security of...

Cons

At work, I use 3 servers within Okta. One for our "corporate" servers, one for "production" and one for our parent company. The chrome extension only shows the links from the most recently accessed. So, I end up having to use the web pages, even with the extension. Also, having multiple Okta servers doesn't work well with LastPass and other password managers. They see all my servers as the same host. But, I have different passwords. So, I basically just turn off password management for Okta.

Consider your entire ecosystem

Reviewed 2 years ago

We're in the process of transitioning all of our (many) logins to Okta for SSO. Salesforce, Snowflake, Azure, Power BI, etc. Especially for reporting/analytics it has reduced friction bouncing between applications to gather data from disparate software suites.

Pros

Supports a ton of stuff out of the box, and even the stuff it doesn't support officially can usually be made to work. For example, we used Azure Application Proxy to enable Okta SSO for an old on-prem application that only officially supports Azure Federated Services. Their customer service was responsive in this endeavour, although see the cons for details. For supported issues, their CS was very good and quick.

Cons

While Okta customer service is responsive, they sort of passed the buck when issues are between Okta and a non-supported application even when the issue is with Okta, not the unsupported thing. That said, there's a ton of community documentation so it's not the end of the world to find these answers on one's own. Even though it was an Okta issue, they deflected by saying the target wasn't a supported piece of software. Their professional services is NOT CHEAP. Just FYI before you give up on building a solution and thinking about bring them in to finish a job for you

Pros

It's fairly easy to deploy and integrate an app using Okta. The programme has excellent admin and user friendliness. It is one of the best IAM tools and one of the top SSO solutions because of how simple it is to use and the diversity of capabilities it provides. Most apps and most providers that allow SSO interaction with Okta have very basic and straightforward SSO connectivity. Both the option to create a separate directory and the option to merge with your current directory function pretty nicely. It is a comprehensive product when combined with additional capabilities like threat management, Directory service, and life cycle management. This should be done even if cost is not a concern.

Cons

The item takes some underlying setting up the item has many elements that can appear to be exceptionally confounding and the cost goes up with every one of the highlights you want fundamentally for every client

Pros

Installing and setting up the application is a very simple process. It didn't take me much time to get used to Okta. It has helped us save a lot of time by eliminating the need to type and retype passwords huge number of times.

The integration with the AD (active directory) has been seamless, within seconds we were able to import information and create accounts. In addition to thousands of applications in their catalog, they keep adding more each day.

Cons

I found that the report generation features aren’t up to the mark. When we wanted to delete some accounts, I couldn't do it myself and had to get help from a customer support agent. What they said was we can only deactivate, but not delete them. I needed it to be removed from everywhere in fact.

A very solid choice for Identity management and SSO features, their MFA piece is equally good and the admin center is very easy to tell which user is locked out and why, it's a great mid-point for those who want to separate themselves from MS a bit before diving into Azure and their MFA process.

Cons

Biggest con is simply the price overall but that can be said with any identity management software, no one likes paying but we have to do so. We've looked at a few identity management softwares as well and haven't been quite satisfied with pulling the trigger for a switch so we remain on OKTA for a time before switching to Azure.

Great User Experience and Easy Administration

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

Our users save minutes every single day, no longer repetitively typing and re-typing their directory password. When we have had issues with applications, their support has been extremely responsive. They also take what the community builds as custom applications and will roll those into the app library as they put polish on them and make them ready for prime time.

Cons

The only downside to Okta is cost. We know these systems are not cheap and Okta is one of the premium models for sure. We decided that with a system which was so user intensive and users had to touch many times per day for logging into applications, we were not willing to sacrifice usability for what came down to not a lot of money. I will tell you that the list pricing on their website is very negotiable. If you can find some other customers to talk pricing to you you'll know that good deals are there if you work it correctly with your account team and their sales cycle.
