Why OKTA Lifecycle Management?

A growing organization’s employees, customers, and contractors need trusted access to enterprise applications, and increasingly, via their desktop and mobile devices. Often, helpdesk administrators usually depend on standard real-time software to ascertain the right access levels to provision or deprovision users.

These tools usually leave security gaps and downsize employee productivity legs, as well as extend the average response time to users who move within, and out of the organization. Access requests, audits, and a lack of automation eventually result in a reliance on email, tickets, support, and spreadsheets. Thus, access permission and levels get tangled up, and it becomes increasingly difficult to manage a role, geography, department, and any other mix of user attributes.

Okta’s Difference: A Unique Solution for Scaling Organizations

Majority of the assignment and resources accessed are manual and require extensive IT involvement: a typical scenario is one where users submit an access request ticket, and IT checks the access level with the software before approving access to the app. This stacks up for IT teams that oversee a fluid workforce and a large number of applications.

For end users, this process can be strenuous since access to applications can take some time before it gets approved. Legacy governance solutions are complicated and expensive to utilize, and as a result, the IT team will be forced to prioritize to sensitive applications, even though there is a broader need across other applications as each introduces its security risks.

This is where Okta comes into play. As a cloud-based identity lifecycle automation, the Okta Lifecycle management service provides provisioning/deprovisioning functions for onsite and cloud-based applications, workflows, policies, and reporting for a company’s evolving workforce and their devices.

Okra Lifecycle Management automates every lifecycle present in a business process.
