Secure Access to Legacy Web Applications with Okta
Traditional web applications pre-date modern standards like SAML and OpenID Connect, so they often use legacy authentication methods to grant end-users access. Historically, providing Single Sign-On and centralized access management for end-users across these legacy applications required a Web Access Management, or WAM, product. These on-premise software tools could be expensive to maintain and complex to deploy. With Okta, organizations can protect both on-premise and cloud apps from a single Identity Provider. This white paper describes how web applications that lack modern standard support can be integrated into a cloud-based Identity-as-a-service architecture.
