Connect 9slides with Active Directory with Okta

As companies continue to adopt 9slides 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.

We’re excited to announce we’re partnering with Okta the leading enterprise grade identity management service to provide a easy way to connect Active Directory to 9slides, while providing:

Simple Set Up and Configuration – Enable AD integration with a simple, guided process.

Integrated Single Sign-On – Easily authenticate users through their existing windows credentials – now they can access all their apps without logging into them separately.

If you are interested in migrating your account to new Active Directory connected account, please reach out to us at team@9slides.com
