As part of CyberIAM’s expansion of its delivery services we recently partnered up with Okta. They provide cloud software that helps companies to manage and secure user authentication into applications, and for developers to build identity controls. Okta has been named a leader in Gartner’s magic quadrant for Access Management and works well with our long standing implementation partners – SailPoint and CyberArk solutions.
As part of our new partnership, CyberIAM wanted to put some of our experienced IAM consultants that had a background in SailPoint implementations on to Okta’s Technical Consultant Boot Camp to learn how to implement common Okta deployments.
The weeklong training started with learning about standard deployment methodologies and core Okta functionalities. The team defined users in Okta and configured external directories. Day two had them configure groups, deploy Salesforce and Box into Okta and then configure custom application integrations. Day 3 moved on to configuring the Universal Directory and Deploying Google G Suite then Office 365 with Okta. Day 4 continued with the Office 365 deployment, then moved on to implementing the Okta policy framework and manage access request workflows. The final day was spent on practical work and exam preparation.
The team found the training and the instructor excellent and are very excited to work on Okta projects.
