Okta is a cloud-based SSO platform that allows users to enter one name and password to access multiple applications. Users can access all of their web applications, both behind the firewall and in the cloud, with a single sign in. Okta provides a seamless experience across PCs, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. (DSSO) is the functionality that allows usersIn Okta literature, we generally refer to "users" as the people who serve as Okta administrators.

It provides a superior user-experience as users don’t have to login multiple times.

This enables you to have no maintenance overhead and also removes the burden of worrying about High Availability as Okta handles the Kerberos validation. ClosedDiagram
