Announcing Okta SSO for HashiCorp Terraform Cloud for Business
Companies of all kinds and sizes are adopting more cloud infrastructure and employing DevOps programs to streamline the delivery and operations of software. In doing so, they begin to foster a culture of automation that spans people, process, and technology. As a leading provider of open source technologies across the infrastructure landscape, HashiCorp enables teams to innovate faster, bringing new digital experiences to customers in a seamless and scalable manner. With the announcement of Okta SSO support for Terraform Cloud for Business, Okta and HashiCorp enable teams to continue innovating without compromising on security—aka moving fast without breaking things.
HashiCorp Terraform is an open source infrastructure-as-code (IaC) product for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently. Many Okta customers have adopted HashiCorp Terraform as a mechanism to automate the provisioning of resources across their cloud environments—whether deploying to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, other clouds, or an on-premises datacenter, Terraform can be a single control center to create and manage dynamic infrastructure resources.
We’ve made it easy for Okta customers to inject identity & access directly into their IaC in the form of certified Terraform Providers. Okta Administrators who wish to configure their orgs programmatically, can leverage the core Okta Terraform Provider to automate common tasks such as user and group management, SAML/OIDC app management, Sign On policies, and more. Developer and Operations teams can leverage the Okta Advanced Server Access Terraform Provider to automate least privilege access controls across the Linux and Windows cloud instances they provision across their dynamic hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
Terraform Cloud for Business
Terraform has grown from a popular open source tool to an enterprise-grade technology used by organisations of all kinds and sizes. Terraform Cloud is a hosted solution that provides capabilities for teams working together to collaborate and automate workflows. The introduction of Terraform Cloud for Business brings additional governance and policy controls for the organisation. A common need for the business is a strong identity foundation to improve their security posture, speed up the onboarding process, and to unify user activity.
By adding support for Okta Single Sign-On, HashiCorp customers benefit from the market leading identity platform to better support their distributed workforce. End users can login to Terraform Cloud through a convenient and familiar experience, and administrators can ensure that the right people have the right levels of access. Security without impacting productivity – the best of both worlds.
