Join the Okta Application Network
Many SaaS and mobile ISVs are experiencing broader adoption footprints within enterprise environments, and this increases the need to better integrate with customers' on-premises environment. Whether integrating into your customers' single sign-on strategy, integrating your application with their on-premise directory, or becoming a part of their automated user management strategy— Okta can help.

Free AD Integration For Your Application
Many SaaS or mobile ISVs and are being asked by customers to integrate AD for user authentication and user management. Exposing an API is an important first step, but without a packaged solution this often slows down sales cycles and post-sales implementations. To implement identity management features through an API, customers must write custom integrations, buy and manage hardware to run the integrations and provide on-going maintenance for both the software and hardware. Okta can help with our Okta Cloud Connect partnerships.
Okta has helped leading ISVs like Workday, Box, ServiceNow, DocuSign, ZScaler and many more address this same problem. Leveraging our patent-pending, best-in-class AD integration, Okta enables our ISV partners’ customers to integrate their application quickly, securely, without additional hardware. And it’s 100% free.
With Okta Cloud Connect, end users get to sign into the ISV’s application using their AD credentials (or better yet transparently using our Integrated Windows Authentication infrastructure) and IT can manage users centrally from their tried and trusted AD implementation. Learn more here
