2017 - OneLogin brings some smarts to multi-factor authentication. Okta is in panic


Multi-factor authentication service OneLogin rolled out a new version of its mobile app that uses machine learning to determine your typical usage patterns and only asks you for a second factor when it determines that it’s absolutely necessary. Most MFA algorithms are rather rigid. If you’re on the network at work, you get asked for a password. If you’re not, you get asked for a second factor, but he says, it should be much more subtle than that, understanding how users access the network. The latest version of OneLogin OTP is designed to fix that. If you log in regularly from your home on the same laptop, after several times the system will learn that this is a common location and device, and you will be allowed onto the network without a second factor.

2015 - Identity management provider Okta gets $75M. OneLogin keeps calm


Okta, the cloud identity management company, announced a $75 million round.  Okta was valued at $1.2 billion in this deal, meaning it has entered the hallowed halls of the Unicorn club. While being a Unicorn isn’t what it once was, it still is meaningful and a big step for Okta, which has been trying to move beyond pure identity management into areas like security, mobile device management and two-factor identification. The company has been growing 100 percent year over year and as such they were burning through cash. This puts money in the bank and allows them to buy small strategic companies if they become available.
