Modernize your IT

Whether you're modernizing legacy authentication, automating your joiner-mover-leaver process with an HR system, or meeting cyber insurance requirements with MFA, a neutral identity control plane powers this transformation.

Modern identity and access management connects all of your users to their apps, infrastructure, and APIs, no matter whether they are, in the cloud or on-prem.

Streamline the M&A process for Day 1 Access

When you’re growing through mergers and acquisitions (M&A), combining applications and IT processes doesn’t have to be hard.

Okta accelerates M&A and helps to avoid the friction and cost of consolidating Active Directory (AD) domains, so you can seamlessly transition any number of organizations to a common set of tools and handle authorization quickly, without interruption for day-one access.

Implement Zero Trust security

In this new world of remote work, identity has become the new perimeter. That requires enabling secure access for all of your users – clinicians, employees, partners, contractors – regardless of their location, device, or network.

Okta's identity control plane enables your journey to Zero Trust maturity by providing flexibility in how you get there, and the choice of partners you connect with.

Better patient experiences start with identity

Today's patient experience requires many usernames and passwords, across many apps. That causes unnecessary hurdles. Putting identity at the center of your engagement strategy changes that.

Whether you're investing in the digital front door or a new member portal, a single identity is changing how patients engage in their health journey.
