Portnox CLEAR+Okta Integration Delivers Improved Network Access Management
September 11, 2019 |
Portnox CLEAR, our cloud-delivered NAC-as-a-Service solution, integrates with Okta for improved identity and network access management. This integration helps to simplify and secure identity management processes for new and existing CLEAR customers who already rely on Okta for single sign-on (SSO).
Identity & Network Access Management Benefits
The Portnox CLEAR+Okta integration offers several distinct use case benefits for organizations seeking to improve identity and network access management, including:
- SSO & multi-factor authentication (MFA)
- Portnox admins can now perform SSO and optionally use Okta MFA to access the Portnox admin console
- End-user self-onboarding
- End-users can simplify the Portnox self-onboarding process for various endpoints by using their Okta credentials for SSO
- Network authentication synchronization
- Admins can synchronize network authentication and access segmentation with pre-determined Okta groups
- Risk-based application access
- Portnox risk scoring can be leveraged as part of the decision- making process to grant or deny access to certain cloud apps
