It’s easy to be an (Okta) admin

Admin life is not always simple, but we believe executing on your Identity and Access Management strategy shouldn’t be confusing or cumbersome. Okta has purpose built features to not just enhance admin workloads, but simplify them as well.

Simple Set Up

Being an Okta admin isn’t about being an expert at scripting. Okta has out of the box configurations that make it painless for admins to do common jobs like set up new apps or create new policies.

Admin Self Service

Quickly get started with Okta's clear documentation and guided wizard. Okta makes it easy to continue to manage your users and applications by using tools like the self-service feature manager to turn on new features and the public roadmaps to guide your identity strategy.

Delegate IT

Okta helps you empower your stakeholders to do more. Free up your workload by delegating lower level admin tasks or app-specific management to others through a wide array of pre-defined admin roles that can be automatically assigned by group membership. Minimise IT help desk tickets by turning on self-service password reset and MFA enrolment for your end users.

Use one central control hub for everything

Manage users, control apps, and set policies through a single pane of glass. No more jumping around between different tools and screens. A central hub to orchestrate everything means faster workflows and a more cohesive admin experience.

Visibility

Having a complete view of your users isn’t always straight forward, especially in a world where they may live in multiple identity sources. Okta connects to all your user stores like Active Directory or an HR system so you have a consolidated view of all your user’s info in a single location. This makes it simple to manage your user’s attributes, app assignments, and group assignments.

Control

Policies are the first line of defence in keeping an organisation secure. Okta’s central policy engine makes it easy to apply and enforce policy consistently across all users. Control various elements of security, including end-user passwords, the authentication challenges a user receives, the devices they can use, and the places they use them from. Automated provisioning and deprovisioning removes the manual, error prone work of creating and deleting users for each application.

Compliance

With everything consolidated in one place, Okta makes it easy to verify and prove that the controls and policies you’ve set in place are properly followed. Our extensive reports, such as our Suspicious Activity Report, give you clear insights into what’s going on in. And our system log captures all activity in real time so you can act quickly on the data.
