Supported Directory integrations

For most companies, Active Directory (AD) or LDAP play the central role in coordinating identity and access management policies. Directory integration typically serves as a "source of truth" for user identities, and it provides access control to on-premises resources such as networks, file servers, and web applications. A by-product of the transition to cloud applications is the proliferation of separate user stores; each cloud application typically is rolled out independently and therefore has its own unique database of user credentials.

Okta's cloud-based identity and access management (IAM) service solves these problems with a single integration point that provides a highly available solution for all cloud and web-based application Active Directory integrations.
