Our comprehensive Okta consulting services are adapted to provide businesses with an adequate framework that facilitates the creation and management of digital identities.

Whether you need to manage access for workers in a single building or spread all across the globe, our consultants can provide you with a solution that meets your needs.

Secure identity management the Okta way

Our consultants understand the challenges facing large enterprises with legacy IAM systems. These organizations have a wide array of vendors, products, solutions and components that are stacked deep and extensively integrated.

Yet, these organizations are just as challenged with the need for greater agility and a future-ready architecture. While use cases routinely change in line with industry best practices, it is incredibly difficult to change the underlying stack.

At i3solutions, we mitigate this challenge by providing feature improvements and architecture upgrades that ensure Okta benefits can be realized while retaining the built-in logic and solutions in these legacy systems. Our deep expertise in implementing, integrating and migrating solutions, in-cloud, hybrid and on-premises focuses on helping organizations determine their needs and how best to create a secure, multi-functional environment that works for them.  Our Okta technology solutions services include helping organizations:

Strategize: Implementing an IAM solution in a heavily customized architecture requires significant planning. We help organizations determine the best integrations and deployment that fit their business needs, based on best practices for Okta adoption. This includes advising on what features are best and how they combine to provide a blended system that meets your needs.

Integrate: We meet the requirements of enterprise customers by delivering integrated solutions that facilitate secure access, accelerate user onboarding and enhance security without compromising legacy architecture. Whether this requires inventive integration with multiple APIs or a build from scratch, our consultants possess the deep systems integration skills to provide a seamless solution.

Migrate: Our consultants are experts at helping you transition from legacy or custom solutions to your new enterprise identity management solution. This includes moving your user directories, permissions and files while maintaining the integrity of your resources.

Embed: We assist our clients with innovative implementation of Okta solutions by embedding piecemeal components of the platform, such as Single Sign-on (SSO) or Multi-factor Authentication (MFA). This ensures that organizations can enjoy the blended strengths of Okta solutions within their deeply customized solution.

Build: When the answer to your organization’s “build or buy” conundrum is to build; we can build any component of the Okta platform from scratch to power fully customized identity management solutions.

Support: We provide ongoing support to enable swift user adoption and minimize use challenges, while providing training to ensure your personnel can effectively manage the new, improved solution.

Modern identity and access management programs require an innovative approach. Our primary goal is to help modernize your access infrastructure with solutions that will provide an advantage for your business through the digital age.  Our consultants are experienced with providing Okta technology solutions across multiple on-premises and cloud solutions and in many different applications including:

  • Modern custom applications: Our consultants have the knowledge to resolve challenges encountered with these applications when they support federation. We can configure custom integrations with these applications for WS-Fed, SAML or OpenID Connect.
  • Packaged software applications: We assist with integrating packaged software solutions such as SAP environments and SharePoint Server via WS-Fed. For access to other protected SharePoint applications, such as BI features, we can help configure the integration to Windows token service for translation from WS-Fed to Kerberos.
  • Non-proxy applications: For any other software that uses a login form but does not support proxy or federation, we utilize Okta Secure Web Authentication integration for secure and seamless identity management.

Microsoft Office 365 and Okta

With its high rate of adoption amongst high productivity-biased organizations, we provide a lot of Okta integrations solutions with Microsoft Office 365. Deploying Office 365 using Okta provides a seamless authentication experience that leverages on Active Directory (AD) to power deep access management automation.

Our Microsoft Office 365 and Okta integrations include SSO capabilities that work through WS-Federation and WS-Trust for rich clients, web clients and email applications backed by Microsoft. We can help simplify the rollout of Microsoft 365 for your organization or update its capabilities by implementing Okta identity services.

Through the integration with AD, Okta automates the lifecycle management process, resulting in productivity and revenue gains. Rather than the labor-intensive approach of manually creating and updating user attributes, IT can create groups and policies in AD which will reflect automatically in Okta.

This makes provisioning, deprovisioning and updating access attributes much simpler and quicker. It also means your organization can reduce the administrative cost of growth while maintaining an access infrastructure that is seamless and secure.

As a Microsoft Gold Partner, our team of highly qualified and experienced Microsoft Certified developers, consultants, architects and testers have more than 20 years’ experience deploying Office 365 solutions for varying use cases. We can deliver on your Microsoft Office 365 and Okta integration needs.
