I’m not sure I buy the ‘companies would cease to function’ argument for either OKTA or CRWD or any other security company.

With OKTA, if all the employees and customers are logging in OKTA's single sign on and authentication there's simply no way to disable this without re-architecting the system. Not to mention other add-ons the company may have. The cost to switch to create their own authentication system would be so expensive and timely that they cannot switch.

There's a very strong vendor lock-in with a solution like OKTA. CRWD's solutions might be easier to disable on demand though.
