Dealers and customers can now access MPS Monitor 2.0 Web Portal using their organization’s credentials, thanks to Okta Identity integration
Milan (Italy), March 24th, 2021 – MPS Monitor®, the developer of the leading platform for the remote monitoring and management of printers and multifunctional devices, has announced the integration of its SaaS platform with Okta, the leading independent identity provider. Okta Identity integration provides Single Sign-On (SSO) access to authenticate users on the MPS Monitor 2.0 Portal. The integration is available to all MPS Monitor 2.0 users worldwide.
MPS Monitor’s Okta integration ensures maximum security and ease of access to the SaaS platform to managed print services providers and customers. Users can now access the platform using their company account credentials, which minimize the time of creating and maintaining dedicated logins and passwords for each specific SaaS web application.
Okta Identity integration enables users to sign in across domains with a single online “identity.” It works seamlessly in the background by delivering authentication details from the user’s organization credentials to the MPS Monitor SaaS service in a secure and private fashion. This helps to save time and money not only simplifying the user experience but also significantly increases the security profile of the platform by preventing the use of insecure or weak credentials.
Customers relying on Microsoft Active Directory (or on Azure AD) for their identity infrastructure can connect MPS Monitor to their Active Directory domain using the Okta integration to reach a complete SSO experience. Even if they do not currently use Okta Identity technology, customers and dealers can easily activate the integration using the free Okta Cloud Connect service for MPS Monitor using this link: https://www.okta.com/mps-monitor/
For current Okta customers, all SSO integration benefits are available in MPS Monitor all through the standard Okta Integration Network OIDC App, which is available to licensed Okta customers from this page: https://www.okta.com/integrations/mps-monitor/
“Our holistic approach to Print Security involves, among all, other critical factors, a secure approach to user authentication for SaaS cloud applications. The current and most common practice of assigning a specific set of credentials for each user to each SaaS service does not meet the most demanding security requirements for user identity and credentials safety. This is especially true with the new Work From Home environment, where business users work from Zero-Trust home networks most of the time. Partnering with Okta to create a deep integration between our SaaS application and the customer’s secure identity infrastructure provides an additional and important step to ensuring full and comprehensive compliance with the most rigid security standards and requirements. We are also very happy to grant our customers free access to Okta technology through the Okta Cloud Connect program so that all of them can benefit from this integration, even if they are not yet Okta subscribers.” says Nicola De Blasi, CEO of MPS Monitor.
“At Okta, we’re on a mission to enable every organization to seamlessly and securely use any technology,” said Ernesto Di Mauro, Territory Manager at Okta. “By bringing together industry leaders in identity and access management as well remote monitoring and management for office printing devices, we are able to increase the security and usability of MSP Monitor’s SaaS services to their global users. The integration of MSP Monitor with the Okta Identity Cloud enables organizations to access the MPS Monitor SaaS platform through a fully secure Single Sign-On process using their company account.”
