Spreading the Love: 500 Okta Employees Around the World – And Growing!

Share

As Okta’s Head of People Operations, I consider myself one of the luckiest people at the company. Every day, I get to talk to people across all functions, see how they’re doing and find Okta DNA among new hires that join our family – which we’re excited to celebrate is still growing after we recently reached the 500 mark. (Did I mention we’re hiring?)pasted image 0

From our San Francisco HQ and Seattle to Toronto, as well as London, Sydney and our newest office in Amsterdam, pride and passion runs strong throughout our global team as we continue to grow. It’s easy for us to see how that DNA takes shape – we’re here everyday – but we pulled together a few quotes for those outside these walls to get a glimpse at what makes Okta different:

How Okta Helped RentPath Build a Home for Advertisers

Share

Whether it’s searching for an apartment or buying a new house, chances are you’ve at some point experienced one of life’s most stressful, time consuming experiences: finding a home.

RentPath logo

One organization curing the housing headache? RentPath. The company helps consumers find their ideal home through its suite of sites, including ApartmentGuide.com, NewHomeGuide.com and Lovely; meanwhile, property managers, landlords, home builders and real estate agents manage their orders and listings – across all RentPath websites – from one central interface.

It wasn’t always this simple. Before RentPath started using Okta, all of the company’s real estate-focused sites existed separately, requiring advertisers to log in and manage listings individually within each siloed service. To consolidate user identities and to create a central interface for customers, the RentPath team initially built its own solution based on LDAP, but this infrastructure lacked efficiency and functionality.

Is Your Product Enterprise-Ready? (Part 1: Enterprise Authentication)

Share

For many companies, creating an “enterprise-grade” product is the ultimate dream: Build an early version to fit smaller organizations’ requirements, demonstrate market viability and, finally, scale to larger customers. To be sure, that process of building an enterprise-grade SaaS product – and growing into a stable company that can support it – is no small feat.

Here at Okta, we sit at the interface between global Fortune 500 enterprises and the 4,000+ SaaS products they use every day. Through our work with an array of companies and teams building B2B cloud services, we’ve learned a few key steps to becoming enterprise-ready. The first? Establishing proper authentication.

Introducing Okta’s Interns (And Giving A Peek Into Our Pantry): Say Hello to Summer 2015

Share

Textbooks have been left abandoned in dorm rooms, Fourth of July fireworks have been launched and summer is in full force. While we’re not able to enjoy much sunshine in San Francisco during the traditional summer months – have you heard of our friend Karl the Fog? – school is out, and that means we’re able to welcome 30 new faces as part of our summer internship program.

Our largest intern class hails from 20 different schools and are from places as distant as Kuwait and The United Arab Emirates. But instead of simply sharing statistics and facts, we’d like you to hear about the class from the interns themselves.11659414_10153455824407520_2213048901306378405_n

We decided to pick their brains to see how their summer has been going thus far. As it turns out, they’ve already made impactful contributions to projects, visited (and escaped!) Alcatraz and found their favorite snack in the kitchen pantry. We’ll let them take it from here.

The Power of Better Connections: Acxiom Turns to Okta for Identity Management (and 900% ROI)

Share

acxiom-logo-retAcxiom (NASDAQ: ACXM) connects audiences to the things they truly care about. Whether working with a major US airline to offer a personal touch to its most valued frequent fliers or with one of the largest retail store in the US to personalize customer experiences across all touchpoints, Acxiom knows the power of better connections. The company’s technology platform weaves an intricate web of customer data, business intelligence and deep analysis that empowers 7,000+ global brands across many industries to engage in meaningful ways with the audiences that matter most to their organizations.

In powering these connections, the company’s 5,000+ associates use a wide variety of applications, including Workday, ADP, Salesforce, Tidemark and most recently Office365, to get the job done. That’s why Acxiom turned to Okta for its cloud identity and access management needs. While Acxiom associates are busy working with customers on their marketing initiatives, Okta takes away the pain of connecting employees with the applications and devices they need to get the job done – and creates a delightful user experience for associates worldwide. Since deploying Okta, Acxiom now saves more than $60,000 per year in IT-related costs, improves end-user productivity to the tune of $1 million per year and strengthens its security, valued at more than $40,000 per year.

We sat down with Pablo Valarezo, IAM program manager, to discuss why Acxiom selected Okta and how implementation has simplified daily operations for associates worldwide – and resulted in ROI of more than 900 percent.

Share

Authentication can be one of the most significant sources of friction for your application’s users. This usability barrier can impact adoption of your product, increase the burden on support operations or product administrators and, in some cases, degrade security.

At Okta, we spend a lot of time working with developers to design and build better authentication flows. We’ve found that a handful of simple patterns help your users get to what they came for more quickly, and you can implement these patterns today. Here are four ways to make authentication easier for your users.

Gatwick Airport Takes Flight With Okta Identity And Mobility Management

Share

Gatwick Airport is the second largest airport in the UK, serving approximately 38 million passengers flying to more than 200 destinations across 90 countries per year. All of this traffic is managed through the most efficient single-runway airport in the world.gatwicklog

It’s the job of Gatwick’s 2,600+ employees in the office and in the field to ensure that flights get out on time, passengers are safe and that every customer experience is a delightful one. In order to accomplish those three things, Gatwick employees need to be able to communicate and access applications anywhere, anytime. Okta has made secure communication and access both possible and seamless since 2013. We recently sat down with CIO Michael Ibbitson to discuss why Gatwick needed a secure identity and management service, why they ultimately selected Okta and the results they’ve seen since.

Share

Today we’re excited to share that we’ve added Etihad Airways to the Okta family. Operating 260+ flights per day to more than 110 destinations globally, this brand is one you’ve probably heard of or seen, whether at an airport, in the sky or on a sporting arena.

A Mobile World With An Identity Core: Okta Launches New Mobility Features

Share

At Andreessen Horowitz’s recent annual investor meeting, Benedict Evans delivered a presentation titled “mobile is eating the world.” In it, he pointed out that mobile isn’t just “mobile” anymore – we use mobile devices everywhere, not just while we’re on the move. At Okta, we’ve always been very mindful about simplifying and securing the end-to-end enterprise workflows that IT admins and end-users experience, and these workflows are increasingly executed on mobile devices. This is why we launched our Okta Mobility Management (OMM) service last November. By integrating identity with mobility management, we’ve been able to simplify the user experience while improving security in the mobile-cloud world.

Since the launch of OMM in November, our team has been regularly releasing new mobile capabilities that are easy to administer and intuitive for end users to consume. Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of a new set of updates to OMM and Okta Verify, our MFA solution.

The first update is Okta Verify with Push, which simplifies the end user authentication experience by sending an actionable Push Notification to any device – iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Android or Windows Phone – so users can easily authenticate by pressing “Approve.” There’s no need to hunt for a 6-digit code to be manually entered – now you can just touch “Approve” and you’re in. And if users enable Okta Verify with Push on the Apple Watch, the authentication process is even simpler – they don’t even have to pull out their phones! Take a look at how it works:

A Day In The Life of Bill Losch: Okta’s CFO Puts Money On The Cloud

Share

IT teams are responsible for finding, implementing and ensuring technologies are adopted by their organization. But technology decisions are no longer solely under the jurisdiction of that team or the CTO. Today, CFOs are responsible for evaluating technology purchases and assessing a return on investment. Whether that’s calculated through employee productivity increases or financial savings by eliminating outdated software or needing one less employee to sit at a help desk, the CFO needs to determine whether it’s worth the investment.

As it happens, our CFO is well-versed in both cloud-based technologies and making decisions that impact a company and its investors for years to come. We decided to sit down with Bill Losch to find out what a typical day at Okta is like, and to provide some color to the advantages of implementing and partnering with cloud technologies.

How long have you been at Okta, and what first attracted you to the company?

leadership_billI joined Okta in June 2013, so it’s been almost two years. While I had experience working at larger companies – DreamWorks Animation, Yahoo! Inc. and Universal Studios, to name a few you might recognize – I first and foremost wanted to work at a technology company that was solving a real painpoint for companies and consumers.
