Employees need simple and secure access to their applications.

While many of these apps are still on premise, a growing number have moved to the cloud or are native apps on tablets and smart phones. 

Okta provides a modern, cloud based Identity and Access Management Solution to connect employees, partners, customers and devices. Today, Okta is securely connecting millions of people to over 4,000 applications across 185 countries.

Easy to configure OKTA offerings include:

Single Sign-On

Comprehensive but flexible Single Sign-On solution for web applications; whether they are in the cloud or on-premise, behind the firewall.

AD and LDAP Integration

Typically, SaaS applications run outside of the firewall or beyond the reach of enterprise directories where usernames and logins are managed. Okta provides a solution to integrate web applications with user directories in order to simplify and accelerate their adoption.

Policy Engine

To govern the access, whether by restricting access to apps based on time of day, or adding additional authentication factors based on physical location.


A full set of REST APIs to allow a custom build branded login page, integration with existing portals, connections to legacy identity systems, etc.


To enable B2B and B2C users to authenticate to your portal or application with their own company credentials using federation standards such as SAML, WS-Federation and WS-Trust.

Universal Directory

Customers can combine users mastered in multiple directories and even across multiple HR systems - all in a single Universal directory with extensible user profiles, app-specific profiles and custom mapping of attributes between profiles in secure and scalable way.

Built-In reporting

For both - IT and Business users, to get the insight across all of web applications.

User Provisioning

Multifactor Authentication
