New (Free!) Integration: Connect Box to Active Directory with Okta

By

As companies continue to adopt Box throughout the enterprise, identity and access management become increasingly important. If keeping up with the changing roles of their employees wasn’t enough, IT also needs to manage a growing number of different logins, permission levels and credentials for all their users.

One way to do that is through Active directory, a service that centralizes network administration and security. With AD, admins can easily assign roles and enforce security protocols across an entire organization.

Today, we’re excited to announce we’re partnering with Okta to provide a free solution for all Box customers, Directory Integration Edition for Box. This gives you a simple, easy way to connect Active Directory to Box, while providing:

  • Simple Set Up and Configuration – Enable AD integration with a simple, guided process
  • Security Groups – Automatically provision and deprovision user accounts in Box based on AD Security Group membership
  • Integrated Single Sign-On – Easily authenticate users through their existing windows credentials – now they can access all their apps without logging into them separately
  • Multi-factor Authentication – Ensure secure access to Box by leveraging multi-factor authentication

Click here to get started – you and your team will be more secure than ever. Still have questions, or just want more info? Join Box and Okta for a webinar on Tuesday, August 14th at 11:00 am PT / 2:00 pm ET to learn how to equip your team with seamless and secure identity management. Register now!
