New partnership! Okta and its identity and access management solutions
Have you ever had a situation where a former employee continues to access and misuse your organization’s online resources? If you have, it is because you have not yet covered a critical security issue for your company.
Knowing who has access and to what information resources in the organization is key to deal with any information security eventuality. How do you know it? Through the Identity and Access Management Systems (IAM).
Managing who and how each employee accesses your resources in an automated way assigns certain access privileges according to the security and role policies you choose. This way, only authorized people will be authenticated, accepted and audited so that the company’s data is not at risk of being misused.
Okta Inc., the San Francisco-based company, knows that identity management for any organization is a top priority. That’s why they’ve taken it upon themselves to offer a wide range of solutions that help companies manage and secure user authentication in modern applications, and that also represent a great help for developers when creating identity controls in web applications, services and devices.
Okta’s services are varied, and among them stands out a single-sign-on solution that allows users to log into a variety of systems through a centralized process. To make it clearer, for example, with this solution your employees could log into Gmail, Workday, Salesforce, and Slack with a single login.
Let’s look at some of Okta’s products
The company provides software in the Cloud to enable access to applications and other tools more smoothly and securely. Its products are basically focused on solutions for:
Single Sign-On: This is a reliable single sign-on service that integrates with all your web and mobile applications.

You’ll have faster user login and use of new applications. This solution is an easy way for end users to access their applications, which are fully customizable for each device.
Multifactor Authentication: A multi-factor authentication solution for employees, partners and customers accessing applications, systems and devices. With it, administrators can easily implement multifactor authentication, without affecting the productivity of the end user. This allows for the creation of intelligent policies based on the login context that limit identity challenges to risky login attempts. You can implement a variety of different factors for authentication at the usability and assurance levels.
Universal Directory: This solution will make it much easier to manage all your users, groups and devices, from any number of sources. Okta’s Universal Directory allows you to store an unlimited number of users and attributes of applications and fonts such as AD or HR systems. All types of attributes are supported, including linked objects, confidential attributes, and predefined lists.
