miniOrange cracks the pricing part as it has the most reasonable per-user rate for Workforce IAM solutions. For customer-specific IAM services, miniOrange maintains a tier-based structure which includes affordable pricing for user authentication.
"An additional steps are required to enable Microsoft MFA services. When it comes to MFA authentication, Duo only offers a few options; it misses out on popular authenticator-based techniques Authy and Google Authenticator, Push Notifications, Hardware Token, etc. Adaptive Authentication functionality is not in an optimum mode."

6.Enhanced Concierge Style Customer Support
When the talk is about having an overall Identity and Access Management implementation for organisational security, receiving timely and effective support is a must. Organisations don’t just look for help to resolve an issue when something stops working, they also need guidance and advice on best practices or options to address business challenges.
"Being forced to search high and low for a telephone number to speak to someone who can help or being funnelled to an unhelpful 1st line support are the biggest complaints we hear from Duo Users"
Dedicated Focused Support (24*7)
miniOrange has a dedicated Customer Experience support team to ensure every customer interaction is of the highest level. Each call is routed directly to experienced technical engineers, so calls are resolved quickly without having to navigate time-consuming and sometimes frustrating faceless chatbots.
We strive to maintain continuity in customer communications by routing calls to engineers who have previously worked with the customer. This provides a greater perspective and a deeper understanding of the customer environment to ensure optimum call closure times and customer satisfaction.
Along with providing high levels of support, and working closely with our experienced development team, customers often benefit from our unique consultative service regarding solving business issues.
7. Handling Multiple Directory Environments
Organizations maintain multiple sorts of directories for different sorts of users and employees. Acquisitions and mergers are one of the major reasons that organisations are required to maintain multiple directories. Managing all these multi-domain environments makes it burdensome, takes a long time to manage and maintain, and becomes costly. If not well thought out, it can lead to security issues.
miniOrange Directory Integration
miniOrange Unified Directory Integration, one of the core services of miniOrange, provides real-time synchronisation in a bidirectional way against multiple directories. A wide range of directories- Microsoft AD, Azure Active Directory, Google Workspace, etc. with additional integration with any of the local databases.
miniOrange acts as an IDP, acting as a single source of truth, creating a single view for all digital user identities and what access they have to applications and resources. Clearer and concise reporting means the admin’s audits are satisfied. This approach then allows for Joiners, movers and leavers (JML) to be handled on an automated basis too with the Unified approach: if a user is disabled somewhere, ALL their access from other directories is also disabled, in real-time, thanks to the bidirectional synchronization capabilities.
