How Okta's Giving Back to the Community this Holiday Season

When you live and work in San Francisco’s little (or maybe not-so-little) tech community, it can be all too easy to get wrapped up in our world of product launches and funding announcements and to forget about the other communities in our beautiful city. There’s no denying that the Bay Area is home to some of the world’s most innovative and…

Thoughts from the Sony Breach

Sony has made big headlines – for all the wrong reasons – for having sensitive company data stolen and posted online in late November.
