We performed a comparison between Auth0 and Microsoft Entra ID based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Single Sign-On (SSO) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"It supports identity federation, FSO and multi-tenancy."
"It has a lot of customization and out-of-the-box features."
"It is easily connected and easy to put our app in single sign-on."
"It's a very powerful platform. It has the ability to do the usual stuff, according to modern protocols, like OIDC and OAuth 2. But the real benefit of using the platform comes from its flexibility to enhance it with rules and, now, with what they call authentication pipelines. That is the most significant feature, as it allows you to customize everything regarding the authentication and authorization process."
"The most valuable feature of the product is scalability."
"The most valuable feature is interface application integration, but we haven't fully used it yet. We'll need it in the future for a few potential clients."
"The most important thing for me is compliance. Everything that they have developed in Auth0 is already certified by many regulators such as ISO. So, we do not need to take care of that. We have the shared responsibility model to share assets with other products we are using in the cloud."
"The most valuable feature is the authentication platform."
"The best feature is the single sign-on provision for the various type of users."
"Active Directory itself is the best feature it has. It also gives us a single pane of glass for managing user access."
"Personally, I'm a great fan of Azure Active Directory due to the security and compliance features that are there in the classic or default Azure Active Directory."
"Azure AD has features that have helped improve our security posture."
"It's something we have to deal with every day. It is present. If you're in a domain environment, you'll need it to log in. If you work in a Microsoft-centric environment, you can't avoid it."
"We can centralize and manage everything much more effectively with this tool."
"Technical support has been great."
"When they introduced the Organizations feature they did support different login screens per organization. However, they introduced a dependency between this feature and another called the New Universal Login Experience. The New Experience is a more lightweight login screen, but it is much less customizable. For example, today, we are able to fully customize our login screen and even control the background image according to the time of day. We have code to do that. But we are not able to write code anymore in the New Experience."
"There could be easy integration with IoT devices for the product."
"The price modelling is a bit confusing on the site and can be costly."
"There is a possibility to improve the machine-to-machine authentication flow. This part of Auth0 is not really well documented, and we could really gain some additional knowledge on that."
"The tool's price should be improved."
"The Management API could be improved so it's easier to get user information."
"The product support for multi-tenancy could be improved."
"I hope, in the roadmap, Microsoft eventually offers the same features as Okta. It will take some more time to mature."
"If any service is down, it can affect a whole region. We would need to wait on a ticket and get word from Microsoft to understand the issues. If it takes longer to resolve the issue on Microsoft's side, all we can do is wait for them to fix it."
"The support could be better. Lately, they sort of dropped off a bit in terms of quality."
"I haven't had any issues with the product."
"I would like to see improvements made when it comes to viewing audit logs, sign-in logs, and resource tags."
"I would like it to be easier to integrate third-party applications."
"The solution can improve the educational portion because it is an administration cost."
"Though the installation was seamless, it took longer than expected to be completed."

And Engineer Lead for SaaS Technology & Customer Success at a media company says, "The solution's overall flexibility and customizability were the chief factors for selecting it in the beginning. They still remain among the best reasons to use Auth0. The flexibility that you get, and what it's allowed us to do on top of it in terms of code, is key.”
"It's a very powerful platform,” says Shlomi C., a System Architect at Skai. “It has the ability to do the usual stuff, according to modern protocols, like OIDC and OAuth 2. But the real benefit of using the platform comes from its flexibility to enhance it with rules and, now, with what they call authentication pipelines. That is the most significant feature, as it allows you to customize everything regarding the authentication and authorization process.”
Jakub W., Principal Architect at a computer software company, says "The most important thing for me is compliance. Everything that they have developed in Auth0 is already certified by many regulators such as ISO. So, we do not need to take care of that. We have the shared responsibility model to share assets with other products we are using in the cloud.”
For Siddhit R., Linux Platform Engineer at a tech services company, "The most valuable feature is that it is simple to integrate, irrespective of your codebase.”
