Okta and KPMG Australia form strategic alliance

Okta to prepare Australian businesses for the digital future with joint offering

SYDNEY, August 21, 2023 – Okta, Inc. (NASDAQ: OKTA), one of the leading independent Identity providers, and KPMG Australia have announced a strategic alliance and the launch of a new offering, an outcome-driven transformation solution that empowers businesses to prepare for and protect themselves in the digital future.

"The alliance with KPMG Australia further expands our partner network, enabling us to bring our leading identity and access management solutions to a wider audience,” said Phil Goldie, managing director of Okta Australia and New Zealand. “Digital identity serves as a foundation for cyber security, and we are excited to collaborate with KPMG to empower organisations in their digital transformation journey and help help reduce their cyber security risks."

"We are living in a new world where access and identity is at the core of business protection, and ultimately the key to business success," said Martijn Verbree, National Cyber Lead at KPMG Australia. "By combining Okta's Workforce Identity Cloud with our deep experience in business transformation projects, we aim to facilitate sustainable change, enhance performance, and deliver tangible value to our clients."

To support the alliance, KPMG Australia has established a dedicated team of over 20 Okta-skilled and experienced professionals. KPMG's global Identity and Access Management capabilities will further bolster the team, collaborating closely with Okta to provide holistic solutions to clients seeking to modernise their business processes and systems.

Powered Enterprise | Cyber enabled by Okta

Powered Enterprise | Cyber enabled by Okta is a collaboration between Okta’s IDaaS platform and KPMG’s Powered Enterprise methodology. This alliance helps organisations accelerate the delivery of cloud access management programs and services allowing a smooth transition to the cloud without the limitations of traditional legacy IT. Central to the alliance is the KPMG Powered Framework for Okta, a solution that leverages KPMG’s extensive experience in functional transformation with the latest cloud technologies, ensuring businesses achieve their objectives and rapid modernisation with a high level of certainty.

Goldie adds, "This alliance reinforces our commitment to expand our channel network with like-minded partners in Australia and New Zealand. We are focused on working with partners to develop solutions based on a zero-trust security approach formed from an identity-first principle."
