To enhance the security of your organization's account, Verkada offers a number of different options.


Verkada integrates with most mainstream single sign-on providers, including Okta, OneLogin, G Suite, and others as long as there are using SAML 2.0. To get started, check out our documentation for SAML providers here.

2-Factor Authentication

If you don’t use a SAML-based identify management service, you can enhance the security of your account by requiring two-factor authentication.

To get started:

  1. Select your organization's name in the top left-hand corner of Command

  2. Select Account Settings under your user's email address

  3. Click Enable next to 2-factor authentication

  4. Re-enter your account's password and follow the steps to finish the configuration

Note: Verkada's standard 2-factor authentication options support both SMS text and authenticator apps for mobile devices. If you are adding 2-factor for PCI compliance reasons, be sure to check the latest standards as mobile authenticator apps may be your preferred option. 


You can sync users and groups from Azure AD and Okta with your organization in Verkada Command. You must add Verkada as a non-gallery application, and we recommend assigning specific users and groups that you would like to sync. When mapping attributes to Verkada, please ensure that a valid email address is mapped to Verkada’s username attribute. You can also map givenName and surname to Verkada Command.

All permissions must be set in Verkada Command for both synced users and synced groups. After setting permissions for a synced group, any users added to the synced group from within Azure AD or Okta will automatically have the group’s permissions applied.
