Okta Workforce Identity scales up by the user, and then by the service that you're purchasing. The solution is not the cheapest but not the most expensive. They are in the middle rating. I rate the price of Okta Workforce Identity a three out of five.

The pricing seems very reasonable. None of the customers have complained about it.

This is an expensive solution but the security makes it worthwhile.

This solution is costly. With Microsoft, you get the exact same information that Okta gives out of the box: free, because that's what Microsoft does, and even if I compare to other cloud IDPs, with Okta, access may offer free access for startups, and if you have fewer users, it's okay. Pricing is decent. The moment you talk about the enterprise level, for example, we were talking about implementing Okta across the US with multiple customers, and the cost they gave us was two million dollars. The cost is not justified for the single assets of this solution, so Okta is bad in those terms.

We pay for the solution on a yearly basis. We recognize it as quite expensive. We were using a standard license during the trial. We felt that we would get more features. However, there were some misunderstandings with our reseller and the reseller did not know this product very well. Therefore, it was hard at the beginning to get to know which features were covered under which license.

The solution is designed to be a software as a service, or SaaS. The pricing comes at a moderate cost. It's not the most expensive option on the market. Their prices are publicly listed on the website. Any additional fees would definitely come into play if you need professional services from Okta themselves.

Okta price list is competitive. It is available online. For special pricing depends on projects, size, nature of the deal- Okta business is always available to support

The price of this product could be lower. It's just like Box, where when it first came on the market the price was lower. Once people started using it, the price increased.

I believe it competes well. The pricing is pretty competitive. I know that Microsoft also provides something similar with its MFA and identity services.

I think the approximate cost for the license is somewhere between $20,000-$21,000 a year and that includes everything.

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 like additional support and so on.
