Authenticating people into your systems becomes increasingly complex as usernames, passwords, attributes, access levels, and user stores grow. And if you’re trying to upgrade the infrastructure for your app or portal, or link identities from different databases, implementing an identity and access framework that integrates all your systems can be expensive, insecure, and hard to scale.
Customers have integrated with the Okta Platform to secure their environments, manage millions of external users, and save the cost of building their own solutions.
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
Create a consistent UX across every part of your app
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
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
