Integrate Enterprise Identities

Okta makes B2B collaboration simple and secure

Business is complicated—the technology that makes it work shouldn’t be. Okta’s B2B identity solutions help reduce administrative overhead and simplify partner onboarding.

Big business trusts Okta to secure partner integrations

Minimise Administrative Overhead

Self service

Customers using external partner resources need to establish access to these resources. Typically, this requires extra security processes that must be executed manually—adding a huge burden to already busy teams.

  • Registration: Okta allows your partners to create their own accounts and passwords, and even perform extensible identity proofing, drastically reducing your administrative overhead.
  • Account Recovery: Out-of-the-box workflows give your end users the ability to regain access to their accounts without contacting helpdesk.
  • Support non enterprise partners: Okta masters their local accounts created in the cloud.

Pre Build IDP Connections

Most competitive companies already employ cloud business systems for email. Okta gives you turnkey integrations that reduce partner onboarding and rollout times in all of the most popular business applications.

Pre-built IDP Connections

Preconfigured IDP

We offer connections for the most common enterprise-class providers,  giving your partners effortless access to your application through their existing identities. 

Painless account creation

When your partners already have an ID to access your application, establishing new accounts is simple. Reducing friction increases adoption.

Integration maintenance

You no longer need to worry about maintaining code used for your integrations. Okta’s got it handled.

Enterprise-class solutions with federated Identity

Federation

Of all the ways to integrate enterprise identities—manually, self-service, prebuilt IDP— federation is the most secure and needs the least amount of administrative oversight.

  • Standards Support: Support for industry standards like SAML and OpenID Connect ensure federation by any compliant system your partners rely on.
  • Just In Time: No need to pre-create identities—users can be established as they use the system and are automatically routed to their applications.
  • Highly Secure: Since user access is controlled via the federation connection, access is determined by the user’s status with their own identity provider.

Lifecycle Management

Allowing external users access to internal resources is risky since the lifecycle of their current status is not being internally maintained. Federated identity means the user's identity is associated with the status of their IDP.

  • Leveraged status: A user’s privileges in their own system determines their access to your applications.
  • Automatic revocation: When the B2B relationship ends terminating one connection to that parter terminates all users associated to that connection ensuring access is revoked appropriately.  

Delegated Administration

Decentralising administration eliminates the frustration of menial administrative tasks. Okta’s variety of roles let your partners keep administrative oversight over their own users.

  • Scale administration: Increasing partner visibility reduces helpdesk calls to your team.
  • Role based access: Maintain an additional level of control by delegating administrative access to your choice of roles and groups.
