"The most valuable feature is the ease of scalability."
"We're using the whole suite: device management, user credentials, everything that's possible."
"Azure Active Directory provides access to resources in a very secure manner. We can detect which user is logging in to access resources on the cloud. It gives us a comprehensive audit trace in terms of from where a user signed in and whether a sign-in is a risky sign-in or a normal sign-in. So, there is a lot of security around the access to resources, which helps us in realizing that a particular sign-in is not a normal sign-in. If a sign-in is not normal, Azure Active Directory automatically blocks it for us and sends us an email, and unless we allow that user, he or she won't be able to log in. So, the User Identity Protection feature is the most liked feature for me in Azure Active Directory."
"The initial setup was very straightforward."
"It enhanced our end user experience quite a bit. Instead of the days of having to contact the service desk with challenges for choosing their password, users can go in and do it themselves locally, regardless of where they are in the world. This has certainly made it a better experience accessing their applications. Previously, a lot of times, they had to remember multiple usernames and passwords for different systems. This solution brings it all together, using a single sign-on experience."
"With Azure Conditional Access you can specify network locations where you want some of the services in the organization to be available to users, and where you don't want users to have access."
"It's definitely both stable and scalable."
"The scalability is good now, and I find it to be more stable and faster since scaling up to ESX."
"Having a single sign-on to all our applications."
"This solution has a lot of capabilities and features."
"The product requires very little maintenance."
"The solution so far has been very stable."
"The most valuable features of Okta Workforce Identity are SSO, MFA, and beneficial feature sets."
"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 is easy."
"I am able to authenticate my users on cloud and SaaS applications such as Workday through Okta workflows."
"SAP CDC is very easy to use and the best part about this tool is its documentation."
"Azure Active Directory could be made easier to use. We have large amounts of data and storage. We are looking for video files and media content for applications, we will think about options, such as cloud storage or a CDN."
"Active Directory could always be more secure. Right now, we've got two-factor authentications. All services based on Active Directory have a username and password. If somebody hacked our username, they could easily get all the data from our side. So I want two-factor authentication and a stronger password policy from Active Directory. The domain controllers should be more secure as well."
"One thing that bothers me about Azure AD is that I can't specify login hours. I have to use an on-premises instance of Active Directory if I want to specify the hours during which a user can log in. For example, if I want to restrict login to only be possible during working hours, to prevent overtime payments or to prevent lawsuits, I can't do this using only Azure AD."
"Azure Active Directory could improve the two-factor authentication."
"If your organization requires additional security then the subscription will be more expensive."
"Overall, it's not a very intuitive solution."
"The conditional access rules are a little limiting. There's greater scope for the variety of rules and conditions you could put in that rules around a more factual authentication for other users. If you have an Azure AD setup, you can then connect to other people's Azure AD, but you don't have a huge amount of control in terms of what you can do. Greater control over guest users and guest access would be better. It's pretty good as it is but that could be improved."
"Microsoft is working with Microsoft Identity Manager for Active Directory on-premise. It will be very important to have these identity management solutions directly in Azure Active Directory. It's very important to have some kind of Azure identity manager as a technology for identity and access management for working both in the cloud and inside the Azure suite."
"This user integration with the Okta integration network could be simplified."
"It can have more API integrations."
"You can't hide the device when you're checking logs."
"Okta Workforce Identity could improve the way passwords are reset and how it interfaces with Microsoft."
"The guest user access 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."
"Okta Workforce Identity could improve the support system, they are too slow."
"I have struggled to give different access to different users in the same application."
