Gartner Refresh Authentication Choices to Improve Mobile Workforce Remote Access
Prevent a breach and unauthorized access to applications. Secure cloud apps, VPNs, and remote access to on-prem resources with Okta. And because Okta builds and manages these integrations for you, Okta has you covered as you continue to add new applications.
Enterprises increasingly use cloud and web-based solutions so they can move their businesses forward quickly. Solutions that used to take 18-24 months to deploy can now be rolled out in weeks. But that speed of deployment can sacrifice security. Okta secures your applications, VPN, and remote access to on-prem resources, and lets you roll out and manage your apps even faster than before. No need to compromise between agility and security.
Define policies for user access to Okta, or specific applications. Use a variety of factors such as network, geography, and user data when defining access decisions. Tailor policies based on your specific requirements and industry.
Okta offers multiple choices for secondary factors of authentication. Okta’s own easy to use MFA mobile app supports both push based authentication as well as a soft token for verification. Okta can also support out of band solutions like SMS, as well as 3rd party MFA products like YubiKey, RSA, Duo, and Symantec.
Deploying security solutions that end users will adopt is key to ensuring the security of your apps and data. If end users find accessing apps to be too complex or burdensome, they will be less productive or turn to shadow IT to get their job done. Okta has designed a more intelligent strong authentication solution that focuses both on security and end user convenience, with risk-based adaptive authentication and easy to use factors like Okta Verify with Push.
The Okta Application Network has thousands of apps and is growing every day. With the Okta RADIUS agent, you can extend protection to your VPN and on-prem infrastructure. With a single solution, and a single integration, you can protect all of your apps and resources now, and in the future.
