Okta’s role in identity management is unparalleled. It is an enterprise-grade, identity management service, built for the cloud, but compatible with many on-premises applications. With Okta, IT can manage any employee’s access to any application or device.
While Okta continues to provide authentication and access to network resources, Security 4X is a purpose-built application focused on groups and membership management within Universal Directory. Security 4X will help your team scale through control, automation, and audit of several important areas:
Day-to-day authorizations – Daily security adds and changes to groups and group memberships costs an enterprise time and money. Security 4X streamlines the authorization process for Okta.
Tier-to-tier and platform-to-platform transitions – Migrating security from one platform to another, undergoing a reorganization, and testing security changes en masse is complex. Security 4X provides a suite of tools that allow you to broadly manage these types of changes.
Delegate Administration – Security 4X has a web-based administration portal, called “WebGrant”, that allows IT to delegate some administrative authority to authorized business administrators who can independently add and remove users from groups. WebGrant also comes with its own audit reports to provide visibility and traceability of all membership changes.
