Nous uses Okta, which is an Identity and Access Management system that allows you to easily sign-in to all the applications Nous uses through a single login. It provides essential security to our systems and data, including Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).
Once you sign in, your Okta home page displays all your applications in one location. Simply click the application’s corresponding icon and each application opens in a new browser window or tab and you are automatically logged-in.
Q: What is Okta and why are we using it?
A: Okta is a leading access management system that Nous is using to provide a single login to all systems, and increased security.
Q: What should I do if I forget my username or password?
A: Go to this link: https://nousgroup.okta.com/signin/forgot-password and you will be able to reset.
Q: What is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?
A: MFA is an additional level of security that is essential to ensure our systems and data are secure. When you access some Nous systems from home, or off the Nous network, you will be prompted to login, then you will either receive a push notification to your phone, with an Approve button, or a SMS verification code. This is similar to what you may have seen when logging into your online banking, or MyGov account.
The first time you login with Okta, you need to register your account so that you are setup for password resets and MFA. You would have been sent an email with detailed instructions.
