2016 Enterprise identity management leader Okta expands partnership with Box


Cloud identity management and mobility management provider Okta announced a partnership with Box to support device-level security for the Box mobile app. Okta and Box have a long history together but this expands the friendship. The new solution will allow to apply a set of policies on the device, such as requiring a device PIN before you can use any of the managed apps. Okta’s EMM solution also includes integrated identity across participating apps with Single Sign-On (SSO) along with unified provisioning across all devices, according to the company.



2015 Identity management provider Okta gets $75M


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.



2014 Okta launches Mobile Device Management solution


Okta, which is known as a cloud identity management platform, makes a leap to mobile device management, announcing a new product called Okta Mobility Management that provides a simple way to separate work and personal data, giving IT controls they need over work content without compromising personal content on the phone. Why Okta wants to combine identity management and mobile device management? Until now, if you wanted to use Okta on a mobile device, you would have to go through a web interface to access your company apps. This wasn’t terribly efficient, so Okta created a simple way to get native apps loaded on an employee device, while providing the same single sign-on capability they were getting from a web interface.



2014 Okta gets $75 million to develop cloud identity management solution


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.
