Set up reliable and secure contact tracing at scale quickly

If you’re looking at designing and deploying a contact tracing program at your facility and are using Okta’s cloud-first authentication for your employees, contract workers, partners, etc., we got you covered. 

Together, Okta and Safeteams enable you to: 

  1. Securely authenticate users using a single sign-on for the Safeteams web-based application without compromising on security.

  2. Quickly trace interactions to preemptively identify possible points of infection transmission and follow up with measures like creating silos in teams or replacing in-person meetings with virtual contact.

  3. Deliver a holistic, centralized, near real-time view of transmission within the community to facilitate quick and decisive responses. 

  4. Maintain social distancing protocols on-site to minimize the risk of transmission between workers.

How Okta and Safeteams combine forces to enable contact tracing at scale 

Safeteams is built on the same technology that powers our other brands—PixMob and Klik. With over fourteen years of experience in building IoT technology, our products are known for their world-class quality and performance. Currently, Safeteams is the chosen contact tracing and social distancing solution for over 29000 workers in 85 facilities across the world.

Our top-of-the-line wearables help companies and other large facilities automatically trace interactions to limit and contain disease exposure and transmission. Additionally, Safeteams is security and privacy compliant, and the gathered data can be fully anonymized and only visible to account admins. By using wearable technology, you authorize contact tracing only on-site, without invading the privacy of workers. Authorized account administrators can view near real-time interaction data to suggest practices that minimize contact, provide ongoing guidance and resources for affected employees, and schedule follow-up actions like checking on isolation status.

Okta’s single sign-on creates a single control pane that centralizes all contact tracing activity, facilitating quick and informed decision-making.  Okta’s password management system becomes the single source of truth for your workforce, simplifying and securing login, minimizing user friction and IT burden.

Together, Okta and Safeteams empower workplaces to quickly establish a contact tracing program at any scale.
