Okta Questions we get asked all the time.

What can I manage with Okta?

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 complicated.

Device proliferation, work from home, 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 treated with the thought and desire to increase security, Okta is a great place to start!

What is IDAAS and how can this help my organization?

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 secure 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.

What is Okta's Zero Trust?

With an increasingly mobile workforce, partners, and contractors, and with the widespread adoption of cloud applications and services, it’s no longer supported to assume that your data is secure simply because a credential login checks out. Most data breaches involve stolen identities and credentials from unsavory people. Zero Trust is a wounderful use case where organizations can centralize identity and access control to secure access to apps and services, whether cloud-based on on-premises.

Can anyone see my passwords or logins in Okta?

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.

However, if allowed, end-users 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.

Have you rebranded old Okta instance to new Okta instance?

Yes. We worked with many business whom complete a mergers and acquisition which need to integrate a current Okta instance into their Okta instance. We help guide in validation and sequence to migrate to a single identity.
