New Features

  • Okta is pleased to introduce another popular, leading-edge authentication option! YubiKey is a multifactor authentication device that delivers a unique password every time it’s activated. End users simply press on the YubiKey hard token in the USB port to securely log into their accounts. Security is assured, as all YubiKey validation occurs within the Okta Cloud. For more information, see Using YubiKey AuthenticationThis is an Early Access (EA) feature; contact Okta Support to enable it.
  • Okta is also introducing a new feature for our Active Directory-mastered group password policy users. Working in conjunction with AD, the Softlock feature provides a new way to prevent end-user lockouts. This option also prevents a malicious third party from using Okta to lock up an end user. For details, see Configuring Group Password PoliciesThis is an EA feature; contact Okta Support to enable it.
  • We now allow admins to display a warning message in the browser when an Okta user attempts to log in to an unknown org. This security feature prompts end users to use caution before they enter their login credentials for an org that is not their primary org. This feature is Generally Available (GA). For more information, see Using the Okta Settings Page.

  • Consistent with our support for other SAML apps, we now support custom app login URLs for Google Apps. This function allows you to redirect unauthenticated users to a custom login page when they attempt to access a Google application. For more information, see Redirecting Users to a Custom Login Page.

Plugin Update

We have improved how the Okta browser plugin recognizes the login fields of apps that users navigate to directly, without going through the Okta Dashboard. The enhanced plugin allows users to log in to more apps automatically, without requiring them to enter their credentials. This feature does not require a plugin update. This feature is GA and is enabled incrementally as shown in the Features Summary table above. 

Browser Support

On December 11, 2015, Okta will discontinue support for Microsoft® Internet Explorer 7 (IE7), as well as all versions of Compatibility View that represent IE7. After that date, Okta Customer Support will no longer investigate issues related to IE7. For more information about supported browsers, see Platforms Browser and OS Support.
