SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 21, 2018--
Inc. (NASDAQ:OKTA), the leading independent provider of identity for
the enterprise, today announced that the company has been recognized by
Gartner Inc. as a Leader in the Magic
Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide. For the second year
in a row and for both years of the report’s existence, Okta placed
highest on the ability to execute axis. The Magic Quadrant for Access

and published on 18 June 2018. A complimentary version of the report can

“We see Gartner’s evaluation as a testament to Okta’s continued
leadership in access management – no one out-performs Okta, and no one
ever has,” said Todd McKinnon, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder,
Okta. “By serving as the independent and neutral identity layer of an
organization’s technology stack, our customers can count on the Okta
Identity Cloud to securely connect them to any technology that will help
them achieve their missions and do their best work. And because we’re
born and built in the cloud, we’re truly able to connect to everything.
Today with 5,500+ applications, we deliver on not only the ability to
connect people and technologies, we also are able to extend the
learnings from across our vast ecosystem to enhance our network effects
– enabling thousands of organizations to benefit from the power of
smarter, richer authentication.”
The Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide evaluates “solutions
in software or hardware appliance form factors, or as a service to meet
customer requirements for access control to applications and services
on-premises or in private and public clouds.”
In addition to this news, Okta has seen continued momentum, including
its recent customer conference, Oktane18, where the company launched Sign
In with Okta, Project
Products for One App and ThreatInsight.
At Oktane18, Okta also unveiled new partnerships with VMware's
Workspace ONE and Workplace
by Facebook. Okta also continues to expand globally, recently
announcing that it will be doubling the size of its San Jose office and
opening new offices in Washington, D.C., Paris and Stockholm.
According to Gartner, “Leaders in the access management market generally
have significant customer bases. They provide feature sets that are
appropriate for current customer use-case needs. Leaders also show
evidence of strong vision and execution for anticipated requirements
related to technology, methodology or means of delivery; and they show
evidence of how access management plays a role in a collection of
related or adjacent product offerings. Leaders typically demonstrate
solid customer satisfaction with overall access management capabilities,
the sales process, and/or related service and support.”
“When we look at the results, we see Gartner’s recognition as an
affirmation of why more than 4,700 organizations rely on the Okta
Identity Cloud to secure their extended enterprise and transform their
customers’ experiences,” said Ryan Carlson, Chief Marketing Officer,

priority at Okta. We view our repeated placement as a Leader in
Gartner’s research as clear and continued validation of that focus. Our
customers count on the Okta Identity Cloud to securely connect them to
any technology, and we take our responsibility to our customers
seriously. We’re squarely focused on enabling every organization to be
more productive, secure and connected — and will continue to put our
customers first as we lead the market.”
