Call to Action – ITconnecter will provide a non-biased, external review of your current SSO requirements and map how okta, MS ADFS and any other options you are interested in compare for your companies specific requirements at our cost (25% of what any other consultant would charge).  Just reply to this blog post with a request for more details.

Re: okta, their okta Cloud SSO whitepaper compares  cloud-based SSO with Microsoft ADFS.  Regardless of whether you are a Microsoft-only shop today, any IT organization should absolutely review this space now based upon its potential corporate impact across any/all cloud implementations (public, private and hybrid).

Kudos to Mr. Bertrand Leroux and and Mr. Mark Settle, CIOs at Activision and BMC Software, for “getting it;;” this is at least the second “true cloud” solution their firms are already using, well ahead of their peers (and competitors)  CONGRATS!!!!

From the okta whitepaper – “The Okta service provides directory services, single sign-on, strong authentication, provisioning, workflow, and built in reporting. It runs in the cloud on a secure, reliable, extensively audited platform and integrates deeply with on premises applications, directories, and identity management systems.

Enterprises using Okta today include Activision, Allergan, BMC Software, Groupon, Informatica, LinkedIn, Purolator and SAP. …form the foundation for the industry’s fastest growing, vendor neutral Enterprise Identity Network. Okta’s Enterprise Identity Network seamlessly and securely connects organizations, applications, and people, anywhere, anytime, from any device.
The Okta team … is backed by premiere venture investors Andreessen Horowitz…”
