With the exploding adoption of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, enterprise IT is fundamentally changing. While on-demand services provide tremendous ROI, they also introduce new challenges that must be overcome to truly capitalize on their potential. Identity management problems such as controlling who is granted access to which applications and data and how to control access to these applications leveraging on premise directories such as Active Directory, have become increasingly important. Single Sign-On and provisioning solutions that are optimized for the cloud are necessary to help address these challenges. This whitepaper presents the eight biggest identity and access management (IAM) challenges associated with adopting and deploying cloud and SaaS applications, and discusses best practices for addressing each of them.

Most IT decision makers are struggling to master identity management in an infrastructure where modern cloud-based software must function with legacy on premise systems. According to a recent IDG Research study, 91 percent of respondents say solving this identity management conundrum is critical or very important to succeeding at their digital initiatives. And the vast majority of respondents long for a solution that is both efficient to manage and provides users and customers with an outstanding experience. This white paper examines how your peers are looking at digitizing their businesses, lowering the total cost of ownership, and building an identity management strategy to support their business’s goals.
You're moving towards Office 365 and you want true single sign-on for users. You also want to ensure authentication is directly tied back to the policies and user status in Active Directory. With Okta's lightweight agent, you can minimize your on-prem footprint as you move to the cloud. Zero servers and on-prem software to deploy, update and manage means lower TCO.
Current Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) solutions have optimized heavily for complete customization, leaving customers with full flexibility in designing rules and workflows. The problem is that it takes these solutions too long to deploy, at too high a cost, and rarely do they deliver on the ROI that was originally anticipated. Okta believes there is a better way, and a way to reach a much broader set of organizations, by building a cloud-based IGA product that is optimized for out-of-the-box capability and is easily configurable. Read this white paper to learn the four key feature areas.

For many organizations, portals are an increasingly important way of providing critical application access to partners and/or customers. Assembled from multiple web applications, portals introduce unique identity management challenges, because unlike internal employees, users from customers or partners aren't typically stored in the corporate directory. This forces administrators to maintain multiple user-stores and end-users to register, and manage logins for, each app individually.
