Deploying Okta at Somerford Associates — Our Story

We are a Premier Partner with Okta and a user, so we know first hand the value and security Okta provides.

Moving an entire identity stack to a new software can be hair raising, but luckily with the use of Okta at Somerford we were able to move our SSO and identity management to Okta easily without any friction and provide better functionality for our end users.
So — how did we do it?

Identify Your Users and Groups

Identify Your Apps and Access Controls

Connect to Existing Directory

Implement Groups and Security Policies

Start Configuring Apps

Testing Apps with Users

The Big Bang!

Longer term we have leveraged Okta’s automated provisioning and deprovisioning to reduce the administration of users, this has reduced the time it takes to create a user from around 1 hour to less than 10 minutes. Moreover, Okta Workflows will now provide us automated deprovisioning of applications that do not currently support SCIM or SAML and send us an email once they have been deprovisioned.
