Simplified employee access

Online accounting software company, Xero, builds a product that’s secure, easy to use, and (as their tagline proclaims) “beautiful.” As the company prepares for intense growth, IT looks for an identity management solution with those same traits.

The team implements Okta Single Sign-On, to simplify access to the large number of cloud applications that Xero employees demand. At first, IT continues with Active Directory as the master, adding and updating employee profile information manually.
