Okta’s commitment to GDPR compliance
Okta welcomes the arrival of the GDPR. We view it both as an important step forward in streamlining and unifying data protection requirements across the EU, and as an opportunity for Okta to strengthen our long-standing commitment to data protection principles and practices.
Okta will comply with the GDPR in the delivery of our service to our customers. We have closely analyzed the GDPR’s requirements, and based on our findings, we are working to make enhancements to our products and services, our documentation and our contract documents in order to help our customers meet their GDPR compliance requirements.
While Okta can’t solve all the challenges presented by the GDPR, Identity and Access Management using a product such as Okta can provide a strong foundation for GDPR compliance and can help reduce your risk. Be sure to consult with your organization’s legal team to understand how the GDPR may apply to your organization.
