Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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.""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.""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 supports identity federation, FSO and multi-tenancy."

"It enhances security, especially for unregistered devices. It 1000% has security features that help to improve our security posture. It could be irritating at times, but improving the security posture is exactly what the Authenticator app does.""The most valuable features are the Conditional Access policies, SSPR, and MFA. Another good functionality is registering enterprise applications to provide access to external parties. These four features are precious and are the most used across different use cases for various clients and projects.""It's very good at not disrupting the user experience.""It has given us the ability to be able to establish single sign-on identities in which we can establish credentials no matter where we are, whether it is on-premises or in the cloud, in a hybrid cloud, or in an additional connection from another cloud where we share equipment or host.""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.""The best thing about Active Directory is its compatibility. It works with lots of third-party vendors. We're using multiple products, and they're all integrated with our Active Directory.""My two preferred features are conditional access and privileged identity management.""The most valuable components of the solution are provisioning and deprovisioning since both features work...Microsoft Entra Verified ID is a very stable solution."

More Microsoft Entra ID Pros →

"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.""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.""The product support for multi-tenancy could be improved.""The tool's price should be improved.""The Management API could be improved so it's easier to get user information."

More Auth0 Cons →

"If your organization requires additional security then the subscription will be more expensive.""The solution can improve the educational portion because it is an administration cost.""I would like them to improve the dashboard by presenting the raw data in a more visual way for the logs and events. That would help us understand the reports better.""Compatibility features for legacy system integration with new features will be challenging at times.""The only improvement would be for everything to be instant in terms of applying changes and propagating them to systems.""In terms of connecting the web application, there is technology for single sign-on. When we use it, the solution opens very slowly. It might be a bandwidth issue, and some content will not work on that portal.""Technical support could be better.""I would like it if Intune could manage MacOS or iOS directly. Right now, we have to use a third-party solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "There are different price levels: B2B, B2C, and enterprise. The basic plan is about $1,500 per month."
  • "Pricing of Auth0 is a pain point. Their pricing model is very confusing, at least for an enterprise. I don't like their pricing model. I think it's too aggressive. It's not very cheap for a service that only does authentication."
  • "It is a relatively inexpensive product in the industry."

  • "It is a packaged license. We have a Premium P1 subscription of Office 365, and it came with that."
  • "It's relatively inexpensive in comparison with third-party solutions. It's highly available and supported by Microsoft Azure in our enterprise agreements. With the addition of their B2C tenants, it's hard to beat from a cost perspective now."
  • "The solution has three types of tiers: E1 has very basic features. You get limited stuff in E2 and cannot have Office 360 associated with it. E3 is on the costly side and has all the features."
  • "We don't really have a choice. It's the one shop in town. If you want this, you have to pay for it."
  • "The price of the solution's license is good."
  • "The price is fine. It's a good value for the money compared with other solutions."
  • "We have a yearly license."
  • "The subscription should be categorized by business size. For example, small companies should have a discounted price, this would help small companies and the organization to be automated."
