When implementation IT tools, the IT department must take a position on identity management also when acquiring Workplace from Meta. We describe in more detail what this means, and suggest an identity management solution that, among other things, minimizes administrative efforts, streamlines the login process, and provides an extra layer of security.
What if not all identity-related questions can be answered?
- What if your company already has an existing identity management solution and the Workplace integration is available, but all the questions still cannot be answered?
- What if your company only has a form of user administration in place?
- What if there are multiple sources of user administration in the organization?
- What if the organization has many frontline employees who only need access to Workplace and not thecompany's other applications?
Solution: The identity management platform Okta can handle all identity-related questions
Okta is easy to integrate, user-friendly and provide an extra layer of security
The identity management platform Okta is the leading cloud-based solution for identity and access management. The solution handles all identity-related issues, and is easy to integrate, user-friendly and provide an extra layer of security.
Organizations that have grown through acquisitions
Organizations that have grown through acquisitions of companies with various sources of user administration such as HR systems, LDAP directories or several Active Directory, can be integrated with Okta and then be able to provide Workplace securely and easily to all employees.
This was the case for Data Respons Group when they wanted all the companies in the group to use Workplace. With twelve different companies in one Workplace instance and with many different solutions for managing user identities, it was necessary to facilitate an easy and secure login, as well as a robust solution for identity management.

Easy integration with Active Directory provides user-friendly login
All users in Active Directory can, based on filters, be automatically imported into Okta and from there provisioned to Workplace. This process does not require any involvement of the employees.
Employees will only receive an invitation by email from Workplace from Meta to join the service. When they log in, they are not prompted to remember a new password. They get however automatic access through the login process they already use for the company's other applications.
Frontline employees who only need access to Workplace
Frontline employees do usually not have their own company computer and often do not have access to the company's collaboration tools. This may contribute to this group of employees feeling less connected to the company, and may be one of the reasons for high turnover in such positions.
Companies often struggle to include this group of employees because they lack the infrastructure required to effectively manage access for them at an affordable price. By combining Workplace with Okta, administration will be easy, time and cost saving for frontline employees as well.
Okta provides an extra layer of security
Okta also provides an extra layer of security. The solution includes advanced security features to prevent cyber attacks such as protection against DDOS (distributed denial-of-service), password attack detection and one of the market's most useful multi-factor authentication.
