Thanks to Eric Berg, Chief Product Officer at Okta for sharing the advancements made to the Okta Identity Cloud to power a new independent directory standard and integration ecosystem for the extended enterprise. Updates include a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) interface for Okta Universal Directory, an expanded, richer Okta Integration Network, automated access for customers and partners, and end-to-end auditing.
â€œWhile the benefits of the cloud have been well established for years, many organizations are still unable to take full advantage of innovative new services due to their reliance on legacy infrastructure, which adds complexity and cost to implement and use,â€� said Eric. â€œModern IT requires a dynamic system that can help them match the racecar pace of technology innovation. Weâ€™re investing heavily in building on our independent and neutral platform to manage these demands â€“ and todayâ€™s new features make the Okta Identity Cloud the most comprehensive integration solution available for businesses today.â€�
