Single Sign-On (SSO) providers like Okta protect businesses by combining all company-approved sites and services in a single dashboard. Employees can then use a single, strongly vetted identity to log in to those sites and services using a single set of credentials. It’s better for security, and easier for employees.
Now, 1Password Business customers can access 1Password with their Okta credentials, too. When they do, they can extend their Okta authentication policies to 1Password unlocks, which helps unify auditing, compliance, and reporting workflows.
It also closes the gaps that SSO alone can’t fill. SSO protects logins covered by SSO providers. 1Password protects so much more, like sensitive documents, payment cards, and developer secrets like API tokens and SSH keys. The move also simplifies signing in to 1Password for employees, so there’s one less set of credentials to keep track of.
