A New Okta Blog for Developers

Share

appsWe joke that ‘there’s an app for that’ for nearly everything you can think of today (and some things you probably haven’t thought of yet) – but the numbers don’t lie. Apple announced that there were more than 1.4 million apps in the App Store as of January 2015. There were more than 9 million registered developers by Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference last year, up 47% from the year before, and two-thirds of the developers attending the event were there for the first time.

And that’s just Apple.

It’s a truly remarkable time. With the unprecedented efficiencies of cloud computing and the massive adoption of mobile devices, it’s not just consumer-facing apps that are exploding in number. Companies of all sizes and in all verticals are building applications to engage customers, share information with partners and automate business processes. With this growing array of SaaS and corporate applications comes a growing need to efficiently and securely manage access and to make access easy for users on every device. And we’re here to help.

Making Security More Usable: A Podcast with Todd McKinnon

Share

Usable security. Does it exist?

That’s a question our CEO Todd McKinnon recently sat down to discuss with a16z’s Michael Copeland and Pindrop Security’s co-founder and CEO Vijay Balasubramaniyan. Whether it’s through an experience that’s almost invisible in a user’s workflow or the promise of simple security with an added authentication layer, security-minded companies like Okta are working to make solutions that are both powerful and easy to use. Recent high-profile breaches have heightened overall market awareness of security, not just within CSO and CISO communities, but with CEOs and boards of directors everywhere.

The full podcast is below – but if you don’t have 30 minutes to listen in full, here are a few of the highlights. (If you want to catch a colorful discussion on the difference between a good and bad enchilada, a short history lesson on steam shovels and a convincing analogy on why bank robberies never stopped the Mint from printing more money, you’ll have to give it a listen.)

SMC Corporation of America Embraces Tools On The Ground and In The Sky With Okta

Share

SMC LOGOManufacturing has come a long way since the textile factories of the Industrial Revolution. Recently in the United States, the state of the manufacturing industry has sparked a debate around a possible contemporary revolution thanks to more competitive global costs and increasingly efficient technologies. One company making a difference in the manufacturing industry today? SMC Corporation of America.

SMC provides companies with ways to automate their manufacturing — delivering products that meet global standards and have the power to help industries automate processes and increase efficiency. Experts in providing physical devices that streamline everyday tasks, SMC realized they needed a solution to make the cloud applications they use every day as accessible as their products. We sat down with Bob Stephan, IT application services manager at SMC Corporation of America, to learn how Okta is securing SMC’s network, making applications accessible and ultimately improving the lives of employees on a daily basis.

A Day in the Life of Grant Bauer: Selling Okta From the States and Across the Pond

Share

IMG_1737Some people consider trying a new place for lunch a risk. Others would categorize bungee jumping, skydiving or other extreme sports as taking a chance. And then there’s another breed entirely, those that can handle a transcontinental move solo. Our very own Grant Bauer is of the latter. Leaving friends, family and teammates back in San Francisco in 2013, Grant took a hop, skip and a jump across the pond to London to sell our identity and mobility solution to burgeoning markets across EMEA.

We recently sat down with him to see how the opportunity came about, why he took the leap and what it is about Okta that’s so special – no matter which side of the Atlantic you’re on.

To hear about our culture of promoting from within and the nuances of selling Okta to a foreign population, check out our interview with Grant in our latest “Day in the Life” segment below. Continue reading →

Achieving Hypergrowth in the Enterprise: My Keynote at #DemoTraction

Share

DemoTraction_Growth

“This is my slide to prove we’re growing fast.”

That’s how I kicked off my keynote at DEMO Traction last week – and for good reason. I’d argue there’s no better way to capture the attention of a conference obsessively focused on growth than to share that Okta has achieved more than 100% year-over-year revenue growth. Continue reading →

Hey Hey MFA – AMAG Pharmaceuticals Talks Creating A Password-Less Environment at Bio-IT World

Share

Guest post from Nathan McBride, vice president, IA & chief cloud architect, AMAG Pharmaceuticals

Update: We’ve posted the full deck from Nate’s presentation here.

Implementing a cloud and mobile enterprise for AMAG Pharmaceuticals began with just a rough sketch in 2008. Six years later, we are officially and fully in the cloud. No more Exchange, no more SharePoint, no more eRoom and (definitely) no more Active Directory for AMAG Pharmaceuticals. We’re now a fully mobile, browser-based, BYOD organization. (And with a staff of only seven full-time IT folks to boot.) What was one of the biggest factors in making this dream a reality? Our continued exploration and use of MFA across our environment.

Nate McBride, AMAGThis is the focus for my presentation, “Security in the Cloud: How AMAG Protects Company Data with Multi-Factor Authentication,” at Bio-IT World tomorrow. (I’m presenting at 12:00pm at the Seaport World Trade Center if you’re in Boston.)

We think of our MFA-related efforts at AMAG in two big phases – pre-2011 and post-2011. We define the earlier window by a few key milestones, namely deprecating Active Directory and replacing our data center with Google Apps (ultimately using it as our “master” directory). It was also a relatively opportune time to play around and brainstorm what our authentication strategy needed to like in this new environment.

EMM and MFA without the WTF

Share

If you happen to be at RSA this week, you’re likely to encounter all sorts of acronyms – including CSA, MDM, CISO, MFA, CCSK… the list goes on. Keeping up with all these acronyms is one thing – and trying to keep up with the latest technology is an entirely separate task. As we look at the proliferation of mobile devices – and additional security challenges that come with these devices – we’ve heard time and again, “Between EMM and MFA, there has to be a better way.” This is a message that deeply resonates with Okta customers who have had experience with various EMM and MFA solutions – but why?

download_20150421_122556Let’s start with Enterprise Mobility Management. Let’s face it, no one loves their EMM vendor. Of course, love is a strong word – especially when we’re talking about enterprise security technology providers – but just about every customer we’ve spoken with shares a common disdain for legacy providers because they’re solving old problems in device-centric ways, not putting the user first. Users know this – they don’t want to give up control of their devices to IT, thinking that their personal photos and emails will deleted when they leave the company. There’s also the fear that with legacy EMM, IT can track your every move, read your personal emails and can wipe your phone on a whim. And because legacy solutions aren’t user-centric, they derive their value at the expense of the user experience. In other words, people can’t stand their EMM providers because they feel like they are sacrificing privacy and have to overcome too many annoying hurdles to actually get to the applications or data they need to be productive. There has to be a better way.

Challenge Accepted: Join Us in Chicago and NYC to Discuss New Ways to Approach Your Cloud and Mobile Strategy

Share

Cloud and mobile: perhaps the two biggest buzzwords of today’s enterprise lexicon. And while it’s true these terms are used in almost every article about business technology today, it’s not without good reason. IT leaders know that having a solid understanding of and strategy for implementing cloud and mobile technology extends well beyond watercooler conversations at the next big conference – it can be an important driver for business growth.

So, we’re throwing down the metaphorical gauntlet and challenging IT leaders to rethink their strategy for the cloud and mobile enterprise.

Bringing Town Hall to the Cloud: How Okta Helped Peterborough City Council Make the Move

Share

The structure of your local town hall meetings – attendees presenting ideas, voicing opinions and airing grievances to elected officials – may not have changed much over the past decade, but it’s likely the structure of your local council’s IT has. Peterborough City Council’s certainly has. Peterborough City Council, the local authority of Peterborough in Cambridgeshire, England, has certainly changed theirs.

Peterborough has over 180,000 residents, and the council employs 1,400 members of staff. The council runs everything from the bin collections, through to housing benefits, right through to adult social care, school admissions, education and many other services.
