Now, Oktais expanding those capabilities to help organizations increase security even for users who do not have mobile devices or physical tokens with support for email as a second factor of authentication.

And, with Okta’s new IP blacklisting, teams can add specific IPs or ranges to a blacklist that blocks login attempts.
- Rapid Customization and Branding: Developers can ensure that every touchpoint is on brand with support for hosted and customizable registration and login pages. Additionally, with custom URLs and email domains, developers can ensure users know and trust links, sites and the source of system email notifications. For applications that will send authentication messages to users via SMS,
Oktanow supports developers to integrate their own SMS provider like Twilio– allowing the developer to control the phone number used in the message and determine rates directly with the vendor.

With Okta’s new self registration-as-a-service workflow, developers can now also quickly and easily set up a secure registration flow for their application’s users.
Oktahas also extended API support for common developer workflows, including email verification and password reset, making it easier for developers to customize and embed in their existing business logic.
