Note: This blog post outlines guidance on how to allow SSO on End-Users devices operated by Microsoft Windows OS and running Microsoft Office products.
As many of you know, one of the most important components in SSO (in regards to office 365 services), when a user uses Office applications is Modern Authentication. Modern Authentication is enabled by default in Office 2016, however, to make Office 2013 (we still see A LOT of companies use Office 2010 and Office 2013) fully compatible with Modern Authentication some additional steps are required.
Of course, cloud identity is very big and important topic. We see a lot of different vendors, like Azure AD, Okta, Onelogin, and etc. providing cloud identity solutions.
Recently we were asked to help one VERY big enterprise (more than 80000 users!) with their cloud identity and SSO challenges. This organisation decided to use Okta.
So, the information included in this section represents the summary of the recommended settings, inside OKTA Admin panel and all required changes on the client side.
