Okta SAML integration

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an extra layer of security used when logging into websites or apps. Individuals are authenticated through more than one required security and validation procedure that only you know or have access to.

Acceptto integrates with Okta via its SAML solution and provides single sign-on (SSO) MFA to ensure the convenience of cloud SSO without its potential security risks.
