How to start?

Okta offers a free forever Cloud Connect version which you can use to integrate one SaaS-service f.ex. to your AD (Delegated Authentication). If you have implemented or are implementing a cloud service (Box, Office365, etc.) you can offer your users the possibility to authenticate to the service using their own AD credentials via Okta or via desktop SSO.

Implementing the service is quick. Typical implementation is done in one day with the help of our specialists.

You can book a demo via the contact form.
