Identity and device management

Mobility management

Okta is a mobility management system that puts user identities at the centre, securing mobile access while ensuring a positive user experience.

Okta allows you to define access policies based on a user's identity and a device's status. It providing centralized control of how and when users can access enterprise resources and lets you shut down access from unauthorized devices.

As Okta is a core identity provider, the system can act on known user attributes and contextual data to restrict access from end-points that don't meet an organization's security requirements. This provides an advantage over traditional enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions, which depend on proprietary SDKs or complex on-prem gateways to provide conditional access.

Okta facilitates BYOD and allows employees to enroll devices on their own in a secure manner. 


Universal directory

Okta allows allows you to deploy a flexible, cloud-based user store to customize, organize, and manage any set of user attributes.

Okta provides one view of users and groups. IT can easily search and sort, or drill down to individual users for details. The integrated system allows IT to directly import groups, set up algorithms to manage downstream apps and even align attributes between your Okta profile and profiles on other apps.
