The success of Okta with your organization is built on trust. And trust starts with the transparency Okta provides into our company, product development, and operations.
All customers receive a weekly update giving them visibility into the new set of functionality that is added to the service, and detailed information on any outages is also provided to our customers.
At Okta we realize that our customers rely on the user authentication component of our service to access their business critical applications. With that in mind, we designed the Okta service so that it never shuts down for maintenance purposes. The Okta service and our underlying cloud services platform is designed to achieve zero planned downtime while also supporting the introduction of new functionality on a regular basis.
As a result when we track and publish availability, it is really the true availability of the system. Our calculations are not adjusted to account for planned downtime — because at Okta there is no such notion.
There’s no magic wand for building a highly scalable, highly available service. Every system tier must be built and tested to operate with these goals in mind.
As part of our commitment to security, Okta has used the SOC 2, Type I and Type II processes — formerly known as SAS 70 — to successfully audit the operational and security processes of our service and our company. The detailed results of this stringent process are available upon request — simply email firstname.lastname@example.org

In addition to providing increased availability to our customers, our zero planned downtime also enables us to rapidly introduce new functionality into our service. In 2010 alone we had over 50 feature releases. These rapid development cycles, combined with no maintenance windows, allows Okta to provide a combination of innovation and reliability that is unmatched in the industry.
Okta truly values transparency and building trust based relationships with all of our customers. This page is just one piece of that relationship and we would very much like to continue that conversation.
