"This solution has a lot of capabilities and features."
"The MFA part is the best. MFA provided most of the security that we were looking at with respect to the second level of authentication. Okta Workforce Identity provides a number of options with respect to multifactor authentication, such as the app, phone call, and text. These options provide different ways of logging in for users, and they were a lot more than what we needed. This is certainly a very good feature of Okta Workforce Identity."
"It's reliable and it does what it is advertised to do."
"The solution so far has been very stable."
"The initial setup of Okta Workforce Identity is straightforward. I was able to get an environment ready within half a day."
"The product requires very little maintenance."
"The most valuable features of Okta Workforce Identity are MFA, and SSO, which have high security."
"The most valuable feature in Okta Workforce Identity is the single sign-on, universal directory, and lifecycle management."
"One of the features that I enjoyed most was the integration with Azure AD because I could use VMware Identity Manager to standardize the User Principal Name coming from Active Directory. You have Azure AD Connect to do that. In between, if you have vIDM handling it, you can easily get the synchronization of users into your VM and standardize the User Principal Name. If you require quality assurance for handling it, you can actually count on the vIDM to do so. That was one of the main things I enjoyed about the product."
"Zero Trust implementation is a great feature."
"Its value is when you use it with a Workspace ONE UEM solution as it is part of the ecosystem for VMware Workspace ONE."
"Okta Workforce Identity could improve provisioning it can be made simpler."
"They also have single sign-on (SSO). When we bought Okta Workforce Identity a year and a half ago, I was also looking at SSO, but not much documentation was available for SSO. The documentation for SSO should be a little more robust for somebody who is implementing it for the first time."
"Okta Workforce Identity can improve by having more features in governance."
"Okta Workforce Identity could improve the way passwords are reset and how it interfaces with Microsoft."
"The integration with third-party tools needs to be improved."
"There are some issues with the interface that can be improved."
"We've not had any problems with Okta."
"It can have more API integrations."
"The mobile SSO doesn't work as well on Android."
"vIDM could be improved with the multi-tenant capabilities that VMware tends to offer—features like customization branding and the integration of the app catalog based on the branding. Since the integration has been at top-level OGs, you were not able to then do rebranding if you were required to use specific user groups to highlight specific applications. At the time, I was personally opening feature requests for these things. I haven't worked with the latest release, so I don't know if these features were already deployed or not."
"The license could be better."
