MFA for Windows Credential Provider

Overview

Users can use the Okta Credential Provider for Windows to prompt users for MFA when signing in to supported Windows servers with an RDP client

Additionally, with version 1.2+ of the agent (EA), end users can reset their Active Directory passwords without contacting their administrators. This is done with a “Reset Okta Password” link on the sign-on screen.
