Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The multi-factor authentication process and the geo-locking features are great.""The two-factor login is great. I receive a message and just have to press okay.""The push notifications and the integrations they offer are valuable. Their mobile app is very useful. It is very easy to use.""It meets our security needs very well. It is easy to use, and documentation is also available. It is also very stable and scalable, and its support is also very good. We are satisfied with this solution.""It is a good solution for hybrid environments and VPN."

More Duo Security Pros →

"The solution so far has been very stable.""The ease of deployment, ease of use, and speed of delivery is what I like about Okta Workforce Identity. It is very easy to use. For a lot of software, you need to be trained extensively and have a very technical background. Okta Workforce Identity is quite simple. You can integrate any software into Okta. They've got a network of 7,000 applications that easily integrate into it.""Its integration components are most valuable. It integrates with everything in some way. There are some products, such as O365 or AD, with which it completely and 100% integrates. So, you can seamlessly create accounts across the board with some of these products. For some of the products with which it doesn't completely integrate, you can do some kind of interfacing.""It is dependent on the evolution of your user base. It depends on usage per user, so the more sign-ins there are, the more expensive it becomes, so it works best for smaller companies from a financial perspective.""A solution that's easy to use, stable, and reliable.""The support for YubiKey is really good because you don't actually have to type in your username and password.""It's reliable and it does what it is advertised to do.""Its simplicity and its integration with various vendor-agnostic platforms are the most valuable features."

"The solution provides us with an easy way to configure and join the VPN with Perimeter 81.""Their split tunneling feature has been very valuable to our company since implementing the Perimeter 81 solution.""It helps to quickly get access to the pages I need."

Cons
"Its documentation must be in French because we are a French-speaking country. They should also provide more training documentation. Its management interface should also be improved. They should also improve its update period. If I compare its update period with other products such as Palo Alto firewalls, this solution is really slow in updates.""The dashboard needs to be improved.""Certain customers can not use this product because it is cloud-based.""We had some trouble with the password reset function.""The only time I really had some negative feedback for them was about the UI of their mobile app, but they improved it in the last version. It is good on the functionality side, but their pricing model is a little bit weird. Currently, there is no price advantage in signing up for yearly contracts. If you are on a monthly term or a yearly contract, you basically pay the same price, and that is very unusual. Normally, there is a discount when someone signs up for the 12-month system."

More Duo Security Cons →

"The solution should have greater on-premises availability, not just cloud and more package customization in its processing.""It would be pricing, which is a tough one because it goes against Microsoft. A lot of companies say they're a Microsoft partner, and they get all their software for free. Okta is like a luxury product, and it's not the most affordable one. I would say if they could work on pricing, it would help. Other than that, they've done great strides in developing a product that is really good. The companies that do see the value tend to invest in it.""The integration with third-party tools needs to be improved.""Therefore, if you have 10 million users, that's almost 100 million, so it is costly.""The initial setup can be complex at first.""There are some issues with the interface that can be improved.""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 pricing could be improved."

More Okta Workforce Identity Cons →

"In order to have to bypass the login using the website, a good feature for Perimeter 81 to have is a login instance in the Perimeter 81 application. I'm using a Mac and we don't have that functionality.""I would suggest adding more networking and security features that allow more customization within their platform.""Currently, I am not able to define a different country or location, which can result in negative experiences as the tool is being recognized by websites and this can make it difficult to access them or force me to disable the program temporarily."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "During testing we are allowed a certain number of licenses for free."

  • "Our licensing fee is currently on an annual basis."
  • More Duo Security Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It could be a bit too pricey for small companies. Okta Workforce Identity can add a lot of benefits, but smaller companies may not have a lot of applications that need to be managed by Okta Workforce Identity. In larger organizations, there are more departments, applications, and users to manage. Okta Workforce Identity adds a bit more value to those bigger organizations. In addition to standard licensing fees, there are also additional costs for things"
  • "License is around US$20,000 annually."
  • "I believe it competes well. The pricing is pretty competitive. I know that Microsoft also provides something similar with its MFA and identity services."
  • "It is costly for large companies."
  • "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."
