Latest news about Okta


2019. Identity management software Okta introduced end-user-security product


Okta developed a couple of new products under the umbrella SecurityInsights. The end user product is called UserInsights. The other new product, called HealthInsights, is designed for administrators and makes suggestions on how to improve the overall identity posture of a company. UserInsights lets users know when there is suspicious activity associated with their accounts, such as a login from an unrecognized device. If it appears to involve a stolen password, he or she would click the Report button to report the incident to the company’s security apparatus where it would trigger an automated workflow to start an investigation. The person should also obviously change that compromised password. HealthInsights operates in a similar fashion, except for administrators at the system level.




2019. Okta acquired workflow automation startup Azuqua



Okta is to acquire workflow automation startup Azuqua for $52.5 million. In a modern enterprise, people and work are constantly shifting and moving between applications and services and combining automation software with identity and access management could offer a seamless way to move between them. The combining of the two companies is intended to move smoothly between applications in a complex workflow without having to constantly present your credentials. S0 product teams will be able to embed this technology in their own applications alongside Okta’s core authentication and user management technology to build integrated customer experiences.


2018. Okta introduced new service - Sign in with Okta



Okta unveiled a new service "Sign in with Okta" that allows employees to sign into third party sites and apps just like they sign in their company applications with a single set of credentials. The new API allows developers to add a few lines code and give Okta customers the ability to sign into one another’s websites in a similar way that OAuth allows you to use your Google or Facebook credentials to sign onto consumer sites. When developers add this functionality, the user sees a “Sign in with Okta” button on the website or service they are accessing. They can then use their Okta login to get into these sites under whatever rules the site owner has defined.


2018. Okta partnered with ServiceNow



Okta and ServiceNow got together to build an app that helps ServiceNow customers using their security operations tools find security issues related to identity and take action immediately. Okta launched the Identity Cloud for Security Operations app today. It’s available in the ServiceNow app store and has been designed for customers who are using both toolsets. When a customer downloads and installs the app, it adds a layer of identity information inside the ServiceNow security operations interface, giving the operations team access to information about who specifically is involved with a security problem without having to exit their tool to find the information.


2017. Okta launches free service for startups



Online identity management provider Okta, which counts corporate clients like Nordstrom and government clients like the U.S. Department of Justice, said that it’s now going to let startups use its services for free. Young organizations with up to 25 employees will be able to use Okta Identity Cloud without charge for one year. CEO Todd McKinnon hopes that they’ll become corporate clients as their business grows and they’re satisfied with the secure sign-on services. There are a lot of companies in the secure sign-in space. When asked about startups like Duo or SailPoint, which recently went public, McKinnon said “they have one part of what we offer” and “we have a broad suite.” He believes Okta’s real competitors are the incumbents like IBM, Oracle, Salesforce and Computer Associates.
