SAAS SSO Implementation

Lessen Inc Mar 2021 – Jun 2022

SAAS SSO – To allow fast growth at a fast pace we needed to be able to bring new applications online quickly and also allow for security while doing it.
Leveraging Okta SSO into our environment allowed us to manage user access and onboarding very quickly. This also allows us to offboard any employees leaving the company via a single click of a button, which protects our environment.
Okta also allows us to leverage MFA for our applications and any internal applications we may build to add an extra layer of security.

From March 2021 to July 2022 we successfully onboarded 67 applications utilizing Okta. With this added security we met opposition because of the nature of MFA. We then leverage the Okta Verify mobile app which allows a much smoother MFA experience and allows our field team to authenticate much quicker.
Also with Okta we have begun using Okta’s Workflow which allows us to connect to specific applications to sync data that otherwise isn’t added based on the application. This has also sped up our timeframe of information and making sure application data is universal.
