SSO for Thick Clients

Maximize your Okta investment and extend Okta's capability to use Single Sign-On for traditional Thick Client apps.

What is TecSSO for?

Traditional thick client apps, including desktop or mainframe apps, use external identity stores and do not have federation capabilities. Passwords for all these apps are unique and the user has to remember all of them.


Tecnics Single Sign-On (TecSSO) is an all-in-one solution which addresses the thick client use-case for Okta users. TecSSO enables a seamless Single Sign-On experience for users, so that they don’t have to remember every password

How does TecSSO work for end users?

Do users have to login to Okta dashboard to access Okta protected apps?

If the users are logged into TecSSO, they also get a seamless SSO experience for Okta apps.
