RingCentral and Okta Partner to Enable the Future of Work with Seamless Mobility, Security and Communication
New integration simplifies identity and access management for IT, supporting secure user access to RingCentral’s UCaaS cloud solutions
BELMONT, Calif. August 25, 2016 – RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE:RNG) a leading provider of enterprise cloud communications and collaboration solutions, and Okta, the leading provider of identity and device management for the cloud and mobile enterprises, today announced a partnership and product integration for RingCentral and Okta customers.
In order for organizations to stay ahead of their competition, they need their employees to perform smarter, faster and more productively. Achieving that goal requires secure digital connections to communication and collaboration platforms that turn knowledge into action by enabling employees to work anywhere, anytime on any device.
The RingCentral and Okta integration makes it seamless for IT to administer provisioning, while allowing users to use single sign-on to securely access RingCentral’s solution, regardless of device or their location. RingCentral and Okta will market the new integration to their respective install base and new customers.
“The partnership with Okta is a win-win for our customers to address the challenge of mobility, security, and workforce productivity as enterprises shift to the cloud,” said José Pastor, Vice President of Product Management at RingCentral. “This integration facilitates seamless provisioning of RingCentral’s solution across an organization, links RingCentral phone numbers to Active Directory, and simplifies user login with Okta’s identity management and Single Sign-on capabilities.”
“Our mission is to improve the connections between people and technology to make companies more productive and secure, ultimately empowering them to move faster and grow revenue,” said Chuck Fontana, Vice President of Alliances and Corporate Development at Okta. “Our partnership and integration with RingCentral provides our joint customers with access to RingCentral via Single Sign-on, and gives IT the ability to provision and de-provision users. Together we offer a pre-integrated solution to customers so they can connect and collaborate in a secure and easy way, enabling them to drive their business forward.”
Okta provides seamless and secure access to applications across the enterprise. The integration with RingCentral offers the following benefits:
- Single Sign-on: Solves the challenge of end-users needing to remember a myriad of passwords, while giving them the ability to log into RingCentral from any device and any location.
- Automatically maps RingCentral phone numbers to Active Directory: IT admins can use Active Directory and LDAP directories to map with RingCentral phone numbers. IT admins do not need to modify or compromise their corporate firewall, to centrally manage end-user identities.
- Leverages Active Directory and Google Apps Directory: Enables user-level accountability and monitoring with the same credentials for internal applications via Active Directory. IT can automatically export RingCentral phone numbers and extensions to Active Directory.
“As an early customer of the RingCentral and Okta integration, we have been thrilled with the seamless access the combined solution has provided our organization,” said Jim Lyle, IT Infrastructure Engineer, Video Equipment Rental. “Our employees benefit from easy access to RingCentral—resulting in greater productivity and easier collaboration across the business and across multiple devices with security automatically built in.”
