Acceptto MFA for Okta SAML

Introduction

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an extra layer of security used when logging into websites or apps. Individuals are authenticated through more than one required security and validation procedure that only you know or have access to.

Acceptto integrates with Okta via its SAML solution and provides single sign-on (SSO) MFA to ensure the convenience of cloud SSO without its potential security risks.

  1. An Acceptto Appliance connected to your user directory (for example Microsoft ‘Active DirectoryTM’).
  2. The user population that is going to be authenticated via SAML must be enrolled in the It’s Me Application.
  3. A user with administrative privileges for the Okta panel.
  4. A user with administrative privileges for the Acceptto Appliance.
