There's a universe of potential challenges associated with managing multiple domains. An acquisition brings in new systems and user stores that you have to connect to corporate resources. A conglomerate with independent business units needs to deliver common applications across the enterprise, but with division-specific policies. Franchisors need to extend a set of applications to thousands of franchises. Whatever situation you’re facing, Okta can give all of your users secure access to the technology they need.
Okta Identity Cloud
User identities live in a lot of different places. With Okta's Universal Directory, you can create a centralized view of all your users, wherever they're mastered. It'll make access management more straightforward and secure and give users a consistent experience across your products.
Build a single repository for user identity information
Store profiles, manage passwords, and apply access policies
