SailPoint and Okta Partner to Deliver End-to-End Identity for the Enterprise
SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SAIL) and Okta, Inc. (NASDAQ: OKTA) today announced a strategic partnership to provide end-to-end identity for the enterprise – helping organizations balance providing simple, secure user access with meeting complex compliance and security requirements.
To increase efficiency and productivity, enterprises are adopting more cloud applications, building and deploying their own cloud solutions – and all while maintaining significant on-premises infrastructure. The most effective way to maintain security and compliance in this increasingly complex and largely heterogeneous environment is to monitor and protect an individual’s identity.
By working together, SailPoint and Okta provide organizations with an even stronger identity solution that securely and effectively authenticates, provisions and governs access to all applications and data across the enterprise. Enterprises can manage a user’s access throughout the entire lifecycle, including initial onboarding, providing secure single sign-on and multi-factor authentication for application access, and automated off-boarding as users change roles or leave an organization. Key identity functions such as access certification and provisioning of any application, self-service support for password resets, and access requests are all automated. The SailPoint and Okta pairing ensures authorization policies are enforced, and that user access activity is documented, secure and compliant – providing enterprises with the full breadth of automated access and identity governance controls needed to securely optimize and govern work across today’s heterogeneous IT environment.
“Identity is only growing in importance. Today, organizations have to connect to and manage a variety of cloud and on-premises tools their workers need to be productive, and they have to balance ease of use with secure access from anywhere, and on any device,” said Todd McKinnon, CEO and Co-founder of Okta. “That’s why our customers look to us to solve their most complex identity challenges. Okta’s strength in securely connecting and managing people and technology, combined with SailPoint’s strength in identity governance, will provide a seamless experience for customers across industries. The success of our customers is our top priority, and we’re pleased to partner with SailPoint to make security and compliance easier.”
“It is an exciting time to be in identity. When two identity leaders, both known for disrupting and innovating in their markets, join forces to make security and compliance easier, it provides huge value to our joint customers,” said Mark McClain, CEO and Co-founder of SailPoint. “Together, we help companies balance simple, secure user access and management with the necessary governance and compliance controls required to not only ensure users have the right access, but also that their access adheres to corporate policy. This balancing act is difficult for enterprises to manage today, which is why our partnering with Okta is so important. We are thrilled to be teaming up together to deliver the best-in-class identity solution our customers need as they manage identity in today’s modern workforce.”
Organizations such as Sacramento Municipal Utility District are already using SailPoint and Okta today to address their unique access and identity governance requirements.
“At SMUD, our culture revolves around a commitment to innovation and efficiency, and that certainly extends to our investment in key technologies that enable us to innovate and to drive business efficiencies wherever possible,” said John Peters, Senior Enterprise Infrastructure Specialist, Sacramento Municipal Utility District. “We’re excited to see Okta and SailPoint team up, because the integrated identity solution will allow us to seamlessly provide our workforce with secure access to applications with the confidence that we're maintaining the necessary governance over that access.”
Because the realities of modern business require that enterprises do more with less, and do it faster, organizations like Accenture and Deloitte are looking for solutions that provide effective policies, automation and workflows critical to streamlining processes and increasing productivity to support their customers’ IT and business strategies.
“We believe this strategic relationship between SailPoint and Okta can add significant value for our clients and aligns with our vision for the evolution and natural progression of the Identity services market,” said Michael Wyatt, Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory principal and Cyber Risk Services Identity Management practice leader, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “This strategic relationship brings to the industry an integrated identity solution that can provide visibility, control, and automation with user authentication, user access and the ability to govern those who have access.”
SailPoint and Okta will work with customers to determine the best way to manage and protect all identities – employees, customers, partners, contractors – within an enterprise. For more information about using SailPoint and Okta, visit https://www.sailpoint.com/partners/okta
