Okta integrates great with my phone and lets me sign in to all the apps I use on a daily basis without worrying about security. I really value Okta as a tool to prevent unauthorized access while keeping my devices logged in.
It can be annoying to have to bother with answering the push notification on my phone. Also, the option to stay signed in lasts only 4 hours, which can be an obstacle if I want to work through a long plane ride, for example.
I use Okta to DFA my sign-ins across multiple apps, and Okta has made doing this easy and almost thought free.
2 steps intensification, and very secure. easy to use
small problem when you want to automate something but, it can be resolved with static IP
Access rights, its way better to do it with OKTA and push then with pass only
Okta is an awesome tool for our large organization that uses a wide variety of online platforms. It's basically a one-stop-shop for accessing our online portals and provides secure authentication.
Okta can be glitchy at times, occasionally signing users out of their accounts or not working properly.
We have been using Okta for the number of employees in our large organization. I don't know how it would work for smaller organizations, but it is an excellent resource.
Okta allows the employees in our large organization the ability to access online applications portals with secure authentication. It makes signing in to many different applications MUCH easier.
I have never had any problems logging in with Okta, it is a streamlined way to authenticate access for apps my company uses, and is a great place to start the work day.
I have no complaints with the current functionality of Okta.
Okta makes my workday more efficient. I do not have to remember passwords for different sites, or go through the process of logging into individual applications every day.
I have it set up as a Chrome extension and it helps to quickly sign me into our secure systems. It has an Apple Watch app so I can get push notifications sent right to my watch and easily approve them.
Really nothing to complain about. You have to set a long password and update it frequently, but it works flawlessly.
We have stringent security requirements and Okta helps us keep our passwords secure.
I like that once you have installed Okta you can just access all your apps on laptop and mobile easily and just get to work.
I sometimes experience that some applications are not as smooth to include on your Okta dashboard.
If you need a simple SSO solution that can scale with your requirements then Okta seems like the obvious choice. I assume Okta is best with Cloud services but I guess it does older on-prem software as well.
I now waste no time logging in to my apps. I don't get annoyed trying to remember passwords.
Since my company uses most of the apps within Okta, I can easily access each on without signing into each on individually. I use about 10 to 12 apps. They all in one place. I can even rearrange the apps according to importance. I never had any issues with Okta since we first started using the application about 5 years old.
Certain apps require you to sign in every time. For example, my language app is connected to Okta and I have to use a verification code every time I sign into the app.
When signing into other apps like the Rosetta Stone language app, can users stay signed in even when we click out of the app.
Minimum hassle - able to sign in to all apps at the same time, user friendly, helps keep me organized at the job and I don't need to open a whole bunch of windows just to access my work pages.
It does exactly what it is supposed to do from an IT standpoint for security in log-ins and app usage, from that perspective it's great.
It requires you to have the mobile app and send push notifications to your phone every time you want to sign in to something, which means you're locked out if your phone is dead or you don't have it on you. I've had a few issues of my account needing to be reset, which can take hours in a large company, and you essentially get locked out of every app you need for work.
It is a lot of getting used to in the beginning, be prepared and don't forget your passwords!
Security, IT, Single Log-in, Approved App Management.
Okta is great at helping out company manage authentication with various third party SaaS platforms. The app and browser plugin work as expected and never seem to fail.
To date I haven't had a single negative experience with Okta.
If you're looking for a simple, hosted Single Sign On solution then I recommend giving Okta a try. The app and browser plugin are easy to use and support has been great.
The time to on- and off-board employees has been greatly reduced. Our employees enjoy the benefit of not having to remember and manage passwords for various third party services.
