A detailed comparison
Descope is multi-tenant by design and can support advanced B2B enterprise requirements. Tenants can easily be created and managed from the console or Management SDK.
Auth0 was not designed with B2B orgs in mind and offers basic tenancy support. Supporting multiple customers requires higher tiers and lots of custom coding.
“This is the fastest implementation of RBAC in a product I’ve ever seen.” - Co-Founder and CEO
Descope’s SAML self-service flows allow your customers to easily set up their app with their own IdPs.
Configuring SAML self-service requires wrapping Auth0 with lots of custom logic that’s a challenge to implement and maintain.
"Every B2B SaaS app needs to think about SAML and access control from Day 1. Descope helps us offer these capabilities to our customers with minimal engineering effort." - Co-Founder
No-code workflows to create and customize flows such as user invites, step-up auth, user merging, and identity orchestration.
Lots of custom coding required to create desired user journey logic. Resources needed to maintain in-house.
The Descope Flows feature is exceptional and super intuitive! While we try to enhance customer experience, our own experience with Descope has been delightful.” - Co-Founder
With Flows and connectors, you can easily create branching user paths based on risk scores ingested from 3rd-party fraud services like reCAPTCHA.
Risk-based MFA only available on the Enterprise plan. Weak or absent customizability with external fraud service connections. Code-heavy approach for implementation and upkeep.
Workflow-based approach that makes it easier to modify user journeys without redeploying the app.
Updating user journeys often needs time-consuming code and configuration changes.
