Enjoy more localized services
Authing has ISO, three-level protection, GDPR and other data security certifications, and was included in the "China Network Security Industry White Paper" at the beginning of the launch.
Fast global response time
Authing has been deployed in multiple nodes around the world, and static files are globally accelerated using AliCloud CDN; the average response time is only 500 milliseconds, whether domestic or foreign.
Complete application ecology
Authing is pre-integrated with many common identity sources from home and abroad, including WeChat, Alipay, Weibo, Google, Apple, Twitter, etc., and can be configured in 500 milliseconds.
For enterprise customers, we provide exclusive customer success managers who can respond on average within 20 minutes; for individual developers, there is also a well-established developer forum to answer user questions.
Face challenges of Chinese localization
Unstandardized data security
Regulations in mainland China have strict requirements for security and user data protection. Using Okta directly in China requires solving multiple compliance issues on its own.
Slow Localized Response Time
Okta has not yet entered the mainland Chinese market, with a longer average response time and high latency in the country, which will affect the user login experience.
Lacking third-party identity sources
Okta lacks support for localized "third-party identity sources" such as WeChat, Alipay, etc. But in China, third-party login through these applications is essential.
Limited after-sales service
At present, Okta does not provide official support services in mainland China, with slow response from the community and time difference restrictions.
