Frequently asked questions about Okta.
As a business, by using Okta’s cloud-based system, you will have the ability let Okta’s cloud-based system manage end-user passwords in a highly secure, highly encrypted format. A single set of credentials grants users access to the apps they need in the cloud, on-premises and on mobile devices.
Yes. Okta, first and foremost, is an Identity and Access Management (IAM) system served over the Internet. Securely give internal (employees) and external (partners or vendor) users access to applications to conduct business. This will free a tremendous amount of resources. This will eliminate calls to the IT support desk for password resets. Have you ever asked IT how many times they reset passwords? It’s more often than you think. Make employee on-boarding and off-boarding a breeze. Easily and securely extend and revoke access to resources.
No. Okta is a security-first service, and to allow such access would be disastrous as this gives anyone with more authority and control unfiltered access to anything you own. The good news is that Okta will never allow admins, owners or even itself to view your login credentials.
End users, however, if allowed, can reveal passwords that they set for themselves. This can also be controlled if you wish to have users never see a single password or username ever again.
When an employee, partner or vendor access is created, deleted or suspended, the credentials stored will be removed and wiped out — not the data behind the application, just the access. This will give you complete control and privacy required from both administrative and end users.
We get it, such a ubiquitous term “manage.” If you think about how you wish to grow and protect what you own as a business, everything starts with a login. The login credentials provide so much in an app-dominated world. Now, couple that with growth, relationships with partners and vendors, and managing this can become complex.
Device proliferation, stay-at-home work, and travel in remote locations can become a security problem. It’s the ability to control and handle this access that is important. It’s a complex problem, but when handled with the thought and desire to increase security, Okta is a great place to start!
Yes. We worked with a major electronics firm with multiple locations and personnel around the world. SAP was the backbone for this electronics firm, needed to increase the security in foreign countries where it manufactures. With our ability to be flexible, we were able to achieve a SAP-Okta integration.
Your business has data, applications and services that all require a login and password. To what and whom you give access is critical. IDAAS (Identity As A Service) ensures access to those apps are protected and only those individuals are allowed to view and use those applications.
By implementing a proper IDAAS service, your business is now centralized and the exposure to data loss is significantly decreased.
