Okta and VMware have partnered to ensure customers can easily and securely move to the cloud, adopt best-of-breed technologies, and simplify IT management.

The joint solution supports all applications (including native mobile applications and mobile browsers), unlike other solutions that are optimised for a specific suite of apps.
Organisations are using Okta and VMware Workspace ONE to securely eliminate passwords from the authentication experience by leveraging the user and device trust signals. With this integration, users with devices managed by Workspace ONE are given seamless, secure access to applications, without entering a password.
