Okta is the tool used by the offices of information security and information technology to reduce the number of sign-ons for select applications. When faculty and staff log into Okta, they can seamlessly access other applications without additional usernames and passwords. Okta is a third-party enterprise-grade, identity management service, built for the cloud, but compatible with many on premise applications.
Compatible with all browsers, visit (and bookmark!) UT’s Okta homepage to begin your reduced-login experience. Applications accessible through Okta currently include:
- SANS Securing the Human
- BSwift (HR benefits)
- UT Email / Office 365 (coming soon!)
Okta will use the same user ID and password you use to log in to the University network. Additionally, the process to reset your password has been streamlined to be accessible every day, all the time. Simply click the “Need Help Signing In” and then “Forgot Password.” Okta is mobile-friendly, enabling faculty and staff to access needed programs on the go through their smartphone and tablet.
