Manage access to all applications, on-prem and in the cloud
Enterprises are now beginning to centralize their IAM programs around IDaaS, moving the center of gravity of identity management to the cloud. With this transition comes the need to modernize on-prem applications, or implement solutions that enable more direct integration to IDaaS.
Once the F5® BIG-IP® platform and, more specifically, F5 BIG-IP Access Policy Manager® (BIG-IP APM®) is deployed and configured to Okta, IT admins can manage access through a single pane of glass in the Okta admin console. Network admins are able to maintain the security of on-prem access through F5 BIG-IP APM.
With F5 BIG-IP APM integrated with Okta, end-users can authenticate once into Okta and seamlessly access on-prem applications. In addition, F5 BIG-IP APM extends Okta’s authentication capability to applications that do not have native authentication mechanisms or support header-based authentication. Finally, F5 BIG-IP APM provides an additional layer of security for on-prem applications by securing all HTTP traffic to and from an application.
