Here’s a bit more detail…

Password fatigue – often a problem especially with so many applications, including a mix of on-premise and SaaS based applications. Okta provides single sign on for over 4500 applications.

Controlling user access as applications move beyond the traditional organisations’ boundaries to SaaS based services how do you manage these different points of user access? Okta provides a single place for administration and policy management, including use of multi-factor authentication (MFA) to strengthen application security.

Accelerated consumption of cloud applications  including Office 365, SalesForce, Concur, BOX, and Dropbox. We achieve this through providing a single federation hub which can also provision accounts directly in the downstream cloud applications.

Mobility Management – users wish to access applications & data anytime, anywhere, anyplace. Okta provides a mobility management module which links devices to users and allows organisations to control these, including the types of applications and data they can access.

BtoB and BtoC channels – How do organisations interact, collaborate and transact with their business partners, suppliers, consumers, customers and citizens? With organisations developing digital strategies the Okta platform is designed to underpin web portals, internet sites and SharePoint sites, managing the identities and security layer of the solution.
