More CyberArk Identity Pros →

"The most valuable features are ease of operation and visibility.""I am able to authenticate my users on cloud and SaaS applications such as Workday through Okta workflows.""It's reliable and it does what it is advertised to do.""We find the solution to be reliable for our customers and it is nice that it is cloud-based and can be accessed from anywhere.""The initial setup of Okta Workforce Identity is straightforward. I was able to get an environment ready within half a day.""This solution has a lot of capabilities and features.""The most valuable feature in Okta Workforce Identity is the single sign-on, universal directory, and lifecycle management.""The initial setup is easy."

More Okta Workforce Identity Pros →

"They could improve their UI and make everything more user-friendly.""The solution could be easier to use and I found it to be very complex involving many steps.""More integrations would be better.""They can include the Mobile Device Management (MDM) feature.""CyberArk Identity could improve by having the ability to better manage the network, such as Cisco. There seem to be some issues in this area.""The user interface could be improved."

More CyberArk Identity Cons →

"Application updates are lacking. Customer support needs to be improved.""There are some issues with the interface that can be improved.""Okta Workforce Identity could improve the support system, they are too slow.""Therefore, if you have 10 million users, that's almost 100 million, so it is costly.""It's not compatible with on-premises installations, unless you host it as a SaaS. We were not able to do that. For example, imagine a scenario where the cloud is not available. Then, Okta will not work for you. That use case will readily fail because it doesn't have an on-premises installation that you can use to authenticate or provide identity and access management. If you have a purely on-premises solution that is not connected to the internet, then this will not work. This is one area that can be improved.""The pricing could be improved.""Okta Workforce Identity can improve by having more features in governance.""The solution should have greater on-premises availability, not just cloud and more package customization in its processing."
