I am using Okta Workforce Identity for identity access management.

We are using Okta Workforce Identity for our clients to be able to plug into the applications without entering the credentials. We are using a single sign-on for our services.

Workforce is used to both manage our identities with multi-factor authentication for the users and it's also used to handle workflow, so onboarding and offboarding, et cetera.

We implemented this solution for all employees within our environment. So, the entire single sign-on is through Okta for all of our employees through all applications.

We've been using this solution for SSO and consolidation of IDs.

I did about six months' worth of work on it. It was more towards getting our lab set up, getting the certification done, etc.

The primary use case is for identity and access management. The single sign-on and access control can be done as a part of Okta. You have APIs to work within Okta and user provisioning.

We are using Okta as a service where users can access our services that are maintained in the cloud or on other websites.

Okta essentially helps us to onboard employees. We do have difficulty onboarding specific employees, as we're a growing company. Okta helps us provision the software as a service applications that we have in our company for the new hires. We do about 5% software as a service application. Once they join the company, it's a simpler process and a quick onboarding process for them.

We use this solution for MFA and single sign-on. It's our enterprise-wide identity management system. It identifies all of our users prior to accessing any of our applications.

We are a solution provider and Okta is one of the products that we implement for our clients. I am a solution architect and help to design the system. Most of our clients have a hybrid architecture where they want to use a single sign-on. They have some applications on-premises, whereas others are on the public cloud. This means that they have a two-tier or three-tier architecture.

We mostly use it for MFA for logging into our Windows RDS environment and a web-based application called Tableau. We are using the latest version.

My primary use case is to have a single sign-on and to have identity access management. I'm the team management manager and we are customers of Okta.

It has got a big network of apps that easily integrate into it, making deployments a lot faster than traditional identity platforms. So, the use case will be companies that are looking to be on a cloud journey for cloud adoption strategies. It also suits companies that have on-premise applications and would like to make them web-based, essentially, access them on one portal. Thus, allowing companies to ensure that they can pretty easily manage access to these applications by their users.

SSO and MFA: To extend Identity Authentication on the existing IAM identity and account operations to the multiple domains for administrative and help desk personnel. Improve consistency of the identity management processes across the organization and improve compliance with governance mandates. The access management with Okta revolves around the establishment of a single authentication store (reducing the number of accounts), which will allow the migration of existing applications to federations, or a common identity store. It will also establish a suite of centralized authentication services that can be used for future applications and systems platforms.

The primary use case of this solution is a single sign-on software. We apply a menu to everyone in the company with software that they have access to and allowing them to use that as a single point of sign-on for all of their applications.

We primarily use the solution to access cloud solutions and VDI.

* Supporting SaaS implementations from corporate login. * I'm a consultant and have worked with Okta at two clients. Both had started to leverage Okta for single sign-on to SaaS services and internal systems. One was more advanced, the other was only doing limited federation and not taking advantage of the power of Okta.

Jaskeerat Singh - PeerSpot reviewer

We used this solution for provisioning more than one and a half LAC users and integrating more than 300 applications. SSO and MFA has been implemented on almost all applications. MFA options used: RSA token, Okta Verify, etc.

We use it as an SSO hub for applications to be added/removed from users' profiles and troubleshooting, as well as an active directory. I work at a service desk providing IT support to PayU international and Naspers.

* SSO integration with an on-premise Active Directory environment * Universal Directory synchronization and leverage UD to integrate with other cloud federated applications * O365 SSO integration

Okta is not just an identity provider (IdP) since, with the help of SAML, it can also be a service provider (SP), which then allows it to integrate with a different identity provider. In other words, it provides SSO. In my organization, we use Okta as a centralized solution for our multiple platforms. With just one login users are able to access any associated platforms without having to log in multiple times.

We use Okta primarily for user-provisioning and as an SSO portal for access to our applications.
