Okta Identity Cloud serves as the independent and neutral identity layer of an organization’s technology stack, securely connecting users to any technology.
While each industry has faced unique challenges during the pandemic, modernizing and securing digital customer experiences through more effective identity management are shared priorities. The Okta Identity Cloud has helped some 9,4000 organizations to create the most seamless experiences for both their workforces and customers, reducing development time for new digital features, closing security gaps in customer experiences, and creating digital experiences that inspire trust, loyalty, and engagement.
Okta was built as a 100% cloud-based service during the infancy of the current cloud era, with a dual focus on accessibility and security. While cloud-focused, Okta also serves as a bridge to on-prem apps and services, acting as the connective tissues across an organization’s technology stack.
With Okta’s cloud-based service, there are no servers or on-prem software to deploy, update and manage — which results in a lower TCO overall. Deploying Okta starts at just $2 per month, per user. And during the pandemic, Okta made its technology available to organizations at no cost through Okta for Emergency Remote Work, a program designed to keep every workforce productive during COVID-19.
“Businesses can easily manage and implement updates and configurations as Okta scales up and down, meeting growing and evolving customer needs,” the company said in its entry form. “We let companies easily grant or deny access as new employees are added, with functionality down to specific individuals, further enabling simple scaling of services.”
