Share information with suppliers and distributors while they manage their own identities.
Leveling the identity playing field
Global enterprises must collaborate with other organizations, not only to innovate and reach new markets, but to survive. Yet, as businesses reinvent their relationships and processes, they aren’t updating or managing technology at the same pace.
When it comes to accessing your information and tools, partners can have very different requirements. Some will want to federate into your apps through an identity provider. Others will have standing Active Directory credentials to integrate. Still others will want to apply multi-factor authentication policies to regulate access. You want to support the diversity—and do it efficiently.
Okta lets your partners manage access to resources on their own terms.
Okta Identity Cloud
AD and LDAP Integration
Manage user accounts on your terms. Use your existing Active Directory or LDAP as your master data store, or make Okta your source of truth. Okta securely delegates authentication to AD or LDAP, and automatically syncs user data between applications.
Make AD or LDAP your source of truth to manage authentication
Easily write users to AD or LDAP to grant secure access to your app or portal
Master user profiles in AD or LDAP and sync them to Okta
Connect any number of AD instances without changing the original stores
Federating an organization into your app is tough. With Okta, it's easy. Think of us as your ambassadors. Okta's platform connects you to any number of federated identity providers—then negotiates implementations and manages trust.
Rapidly onboard partners and customers to your application, with no extra work for your team
Make it easy for partners to manage access to your applications locally, according to their own policies and processes
Secure your connections with standards-based federation
Do it all at scale
With Okta, you can automatically create user accounts for on-prem and cloud services, and then revoke access when an account is canceled. Implement Okta's connectors or write your own to build cross-application experiences that are more secure, more intuitive, and more delightful.
Push attributes from any user store into external services for automated provisioning
Read and write user profile information from any application, such as Salesforce, Box, or Sharepoint
Read and write attributes from multiple databases, or write to multiple AD and LDAP stores
Deploy Okta's on-prem connector to provision applications behind the firewall
Be good to your partners
Broaden your ecosystem, improve collaboration, and scale your enterprise
Enable partners to manage their own identities and policies with locally flexible options
Increase the security of collaboration
We wanted a truly global collaboration system that let every person participate as themselves. We started by using Okta to get one federated source of identity for all of our distributors and for ourselves. And then we connected that Okta solution to our on-premise SharePoint environment.
