“JumpCloud’s integration takes what makes Okta great and extends it to all of our IT resources,” said James Tommey, director of IT at CS Disco. “Now with the integration, we can extend a user’s Okta identity to all of their resources without disrupting the user experience at all, and it only takes a couple of minutes to complete.”
Okta is the leading independent provider of identity for the enterprise. Millions of users rely on an Okta identity to login to countless applications such as Zoom, Slack, GitHub, Salesforce, and more. The JumpCloud Directory Platform unifies identity, access, and device management. IT organizations overseeing remote users who need to manage resources beyond applications can now use JumpCloud to extend Okta user identities to devices, servers, applications, storage systems, and networks. With the release of this integration, end users are able to use their Okta identity for virtually all IT resources and IT teams benefit from an automated integration for easier identity and access management.
“Through our newly released integration to Okta, end users can easily connect to virtually all of their IT resources while IT can leverage the JumpCloud Directory Platform to extend their ability to provision and deprovision an end user in one spot,” said Lindsey Bond, technical product manager at JumpCloud. “JumpCloud aims to make the entire identity access and device management cycle convenient across different operating systems, applications, and networks. This newly released integration with Okta unlocks more value for users of JumpCloud and Okta.”
