2014 - Online identity management market heats up with SailPoint funding to strike back at Okta
Sailpoint, an identity and access management provider, now has new funding in the form of an unspecified investment reportedly worth several hundred million dollars from private equity fund Thoma Bravo. The company brings together single-sign on, password management, user access provisioning in both SaaS and on-premises and will continue to offer both deployment models going forward. Iidentity and access management has been a hot market of late with IBM buying up two IAM companies — Lighthouse and Crossideas in the past month. Other companies in the IAM space include Ping Identity and Okta.
2014 - Okta gets $75 million to develop cloud identity management solution to win over SailPoint IdentityNow
Cloud-based identity management provider Okta took in $75 million in a series E financing round, bringing total funding to $155 million. Okta allows companies to manage who has access to what in its internal network with its cloud-based service that functions as an IT monitoring tool. After signing up for the service, a user can install Okta’s on-premise software and tie it in with his Active Directory or other network tracking services, said Okta COO Frederic Kerrest. From there, a company can then configure its cloud services to use Octa so the software can communicate back to the cloud, thus blanketing a company’s cloud infrastructure with the same information the administrators already set up in their original firewall. Okta is not the only company creating identity management tools, as legacy companies like IBM and Oracle and several startups have their own offerings as well. But Okta seems to be the hottest company on this market right now.
