Get a single, consolidated view of every user

Multiple identity sources. One view.

Many companies have multiple identity sources with different types of users, such as contractors, partners, customers, and acquired companies’ employees. 

Okta Universal Directory provides a single view across all these groups with AD and LDAP directory integrations and out-of-the-box connections with HR systems like Workday, SaaS apps like G Suite, CSV files, and third-party identity providers.

Centralise user management

Get a flexible user management system to manage access and profiles with ease

Consistent user management

Stitch together user profiles from multiple identity sources, modify user attributes across sources, and manage user lifecycle states.

Central and secure policy engine

Boost security by setting consistent user access policies with a central policy engine. Create policies based on unique user contexts such as user location, IP, device, group membership, and more, and enforce these policies with any combination of MFA factors.

Streamlined password management

Customise group-based password policies, enforce AD and LDAP password policies, and enable self-serve password resets to relieve burden for your IT helpdesk.

Get your cloud afloat

Trying to reduce your dependency on AD and LDAP? Store your users in the cloud.

Plenty of room for every user

With a cloud directory, you can store an unlimited number of users, including non-traditional users like contractors or temp workers. Store an unlimited number of custom attributes along with credentials and app assignments. You can even store device information.

Monitoring, reporting, and exporting

Get a real-time syslog to troubleshoot and address security issues immediately. Use pre-built reporting to see how end users use apps and services. And easily download or export your data to CSVs, sync it with SIEMs, or access it via API.

We removed 17 on-prem servers, along with some expensive legacy software, as a result of using Okta and Universal Directory. That saves us in the vicinity of $300,000 per year.
