One of the biggest challenges when migrating to Office 365 from your existing Exchange infrastructure, is that of Active Directory integration. Watch this demo to learn how to easily connect your Office 365 environment back to Active Directory without any new servers in your data center.
Cloud-first, mobile-first organizations are seeing huge benefits from taking a more distributed approach to IT. Business units are given more freedom to evaluate and select SaaS applications that will enable efficiency and growth. Users are given more freedom to use the devices that make them the most productive.
When this trend started, most IT organizations were able to implement some basic, manual processes to administer and govern IT in this best-of-breed distributed environment. However, as the number of touchpoints increases, IT needs to automate to keep pace.
This paper goes into more detail on the top 5 reasons to automate identity lifecycle and identity administration and build a solid foundation for future cloud-first, mobile-first IT.
Have you ever wondered which enterprise cloud apps are most popular? Or which industries tend to use Office 365 versus Google Apps? Did you know that 43% of Okta customers have enabled deprovisioning? From where we sit, Okta has a unique view into the adoption and utilization of cloud apps in the enterprise. Our Businesses @ Work report takes an in-depth look into how organizations and people work today, and the apps and services they use to be productive.
The shift to the cloud is changing how companies think about their IT infrastructure and what they must do to manage it. The on-demand applications and services that comprise a cloud services network enable companies to rapidly deploy powerful capabilities to a broad set of users at very low costs. However, they also introduce challenges associated with securing and controlling users and access, simplifying adoption and scaling of these applications, and providing insight into utilization to ensure the business is optimizing its cloud investments. Okta’s on-demand identity management service enables companies to address these challenges head-on by being designed from the ground up as a scalable, secure, multi-tenant service that protects your data through centralized access control. This whitepaper details Okta’s focus on security and reliability, how Okta enhances security and how Okta itself stays secure.
Most organizations have a dirty little secret: they are relying on user and password-based authentication to protect sensitive internal applications. With 81% of data breaches involving weak or stolen credentials1, applications that use single-factor authentication are an easy target for attack. Unfortunately, updating internal cloud applications—as well as legacy and custom applications—to support multi-factor authentication can be an IT headache for many organizations.
Okta and Palo Alto Networks have collaborated to make rolling out multi-factor authentication a snap. Join Daniel Lu, Product Marketing Manager at Okta and Kasey Cross, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Palo Alto Networks, to learn:
>The latest trends in credential-based attacks
>Why every sensitive cloud application needs multi-factor authentication
>How to enforce network-level multi-factor authentication without touching your apps using Palo Alto Networks and Okta
