Identity is no longer just limited to individuals, but more so what these individuals devise and engage with. As mankind develops new platforms for consumers to engage with, this “connected” experience is bound by the trust established between human and non-human identities. Traditionally, much of the focus around Identity has been centered on the enterprise view. While that is crucial, we are seeing a shift in the market where the focus is on the consumer view. Deloitte focuses on a set of Identity-related functions and capabilities that helps enable a single digital identity and drive synergies across other security processes. The Deloitte-Okta alliance empowers our joint clients to safely and securely connect users with any device, application or technology enabling any organization to adopt any technology for both internal and external use.
