Organizations can gain the benefits of centrally-controlled, high assurance identities with significant and direct cost savings that comes from eliminating passwords.
“Okta enables every organization to use any technology, and in today’s hybrid IT environments, that means delivering seamless user experiences across every application an organization relies on,” said Chuck Fontana, Vice President of Okta Integrations and Strategic Partnerships. “Partnering with Secret Double Octopus gives Okta customers the ability to remove the need for passwords for Active Directory and other legacy directories, creating a better user experience for end users and better security for an enterprise.”
