Featured Review
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 in Okta Workforce Identity is the single sign-on, universal directory, and lifecycle management.""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.""I find the provisioning features and the integration with other applications useful.""The most valuable features of Okta Workforce Identity are MFA, and SSO, which have high security.""The solution so far has been very stable.""A solution that's easy to use, stable, and reliable.""What I found most valuable in Okta Workforce Identity is that it worked together with VMware Workspace One, so there was this device check at the same time. My company used the trusted device method that enabled you to define that only the trusted devices including the Workspace One agent were able to access the applications directly without an additional authentication step.""The provisioning functionality has been the most valuable. This solution has good performance, fast integration and is very responsive."

More Okta Workforce Identity Pros →

"In my role, the most valuable features are two-factor authentication and self-service password reset. The most helpful feature for the institution as a whole is probably the single sign-on. As an IT director, I care about security and ease of use.""It's super useful to have a single pane of glass when it comes to access management.""When it comes to access management, the solution's single pane of glass is extremely important. The single pane of glass for access management enables collaborative work between IT and security. We have access to certain applications that require device trust. Based on the role, we can access those applications through OneLogin Desktop.""Once I made the OneLogin ID, it would essentially make user names and passwords for every application that we had.""The most valuable feature is the ease with which we can manage the sign-on feature."

More OneLogin by One Identity Pros →

"We've not had any problems with Okta.""Support could be a bit faster.""The guest user access could be improved.""The initial setup can be complex at first.""We experienced some technical glitches that need to be resolved.""This user integration with the Okta integration network could be simplified.""The only aspect in which it can be improved is that the interface could be cleaner. I found this even when I was trying to do my certification exam because the certification is hands-on. You find yourself fumbling around a little bit to find simple things. This happens even when you start to get familiar with the product.""The solution can be quite expensive."

More Okta Workforce Identity Cons →

"The solution keeps going down for many hours, which impacts the entire company. You can't access any applications. OneLogin Desktop has a huge problem where it locks your computers and you need to reset the whole computer, which is pretty insane.""We've been experiencing some pain points since the acquisition. For example, there have been some outages we didn't see previously, which are a big topic with my executive team. You have hundreds of applications relying on this service for login. If the service is unavailable, nobody can log into these applications.""To offboard, you have to manually click on this checklist, each of the checkmarks. It would actually be really nice if, for offboarding someone, you just click "offboard" and it automatically runs a script to do that.""I would like better reporting from SmartFactor Authentication when a user is not able to sign in due to a new location, new IP, new device, et cetera.""This product doesn't necessarily provide us with all of the functionality that we need, such as being able to share passwords with external users."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price of this product could be lower."
  • "It has a yearly subscription. As compared to its competitors, it is quite expensive. It also has a complex licensing model."
  • "The pricing is reasonable."
  • "This solution is costly. Pricing is decent if you have less users, but it significantly goes up the more users you have, with its cost not justified."
  • "This is an expensive solution but the security makes it worthwhile."
  • "The price of Okta Workforce Identity is competitively priced. We pay annually for the use of the solution."
  • "The price of the solution is good."
  • "The cost per user for this solution is really high and could be reduced."

  • "The price of the licensing is fine."
  • "The pricing and licensing are reasonable. It is much cheaper than other products."
  • "We were happy with the price we got when we signed up, but I don't know what will happen when the time comes to renew because it is a different company now. We haven't seen any pricing models or had that discussion yet. My renewal is a year and a half away. It's worth what we're paying for it. There's no way we could provide the level of service for cheaper or try to do the same in-house."
