Slack

Manage accounts and secure access to Slack for collective collaboration

Overview

Slack is the single workspace that connects you with the people and tools you work with everyday, no matter where you are or what you do. With Slack you get real-time messaging, a searchable record of all your files and conversations, and dynamic integrations with handy bots and apps. Now everyone can finally be on the same page and get their work done. Slack: It's where work happens.

Okta integrates with Slack to create a space where your teams can share, archive, and search for key documents and conversations all in one place while being enhanced through the security of identity management. Your teams can better leverage their collective expertise and keep their work moving forward. Companies across industries like healthcare, aerospace and defense, financial services, and insurance are using Okta integrated with Slack to collaborate securely and efficiently, with the peace of mind that the right users have permissions to the right channels and conversations.
