Okta Integration Simplifies User Management and Helps Secure Access to Company Data for Cotap Customers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - November 12, 2014) - Cotap, an enterprise mobile messaging service, today announced Microsoft Active Directory and single sign-on integrations with leading cloud-based identity management solution provider Okta. By integrating with Okta, Cotap is able to easily connect with any corporate LDAP directory, simplifying user access and streamlining user management capabilities for customers.

"With this integration, we can now enable fast point-and-click provisioning for our customers' IT environments, as well as provide the ability to quickly and securely deploy Cotap across specific teams or an entire organization," said Jim Patterson, founder and CEO of Cotap. "As a result, IT organizations can feel confident knowing employee access to Cotap is managed and secured through a trusted, enterprise-grade identity management service, while users appreciate the single, simplified login experience."

Cotap leverages the recently launched Okta Mobile Connect, which extends the benefits of Okta to native mobile applications and gives users secure access to the best possible application experience from any device, anywhere.

"Okta makes it easy for our millions of users to securely access the applications they need to get work done from anywhere, at any time and on any device," said Chuck Fontana, head of technology alliances, Okta. "As more companies adopt more cloud and mobile technologies like Cotap, creating a seamless login experience while also maintaining end-to-end IT control is critical to empowering employees to work more productively and efficiently."

Okta users will be able to access Cotap through the Okta Application Network (OAN), a full catalog of more than 4,000 pre-integrated applications that are continuously validated, always up-to-date, and constantly growing both in number and capability.
