Office 365 Adoption eGuide – Identity and Mobility Challenges

This report summarises the most important factors for deciding between Office 365 and on-premises systems to support e-mail, Web-based document sharing, unified communications, and other collaboration functions.

Three Ways to Integrate Active Directory with Your Saas Applications

The adoption rate of Software as a Service (SaaS) applications has been dramatic. Trials of applications like Salesforce.com, WebEx, or NetSuite have transitioned into enterprise-wide deployments, and many organisations have adopted a “SaaS first” policy. The tendency of SaaS applications to be siloed has made identity management, user access and authorisation an increasing challenge. The task of onboarding users is a time-intensive, manual process that involves administrators across multiple departments, which can introduce risk. Additionally, in most enterprises, Microsoft Active Directory (AD) is the authoritative user directory that governs access to basic IT services such as email and file sharing.

Okta Directory Integration – An Architecture Overview

Read this whitepaper to learn how Okta eliminates the pitfalls that come with trying to build and manage multiple on-premises active directory integrations yourself.

Why Choose Okta vs. ADFS?

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 minimise your on-prem footprint as you move to the cloud. Zero servers and on-prem software to deploy, update and manage means lower TCO.
