With the Okta Identity Cloud, they can do so seamlessly and securely,” said Todd McKinnon, Okta CEO and co-founder. “We look forward to working with industry-leading organizations like JetBlue as they take on their most critical initiatives, and we’re committed to helping each and every one of our customers fulfill their missions faster with technology.”
“At JetBlue, we aim to Inspire Humanity through our distinctive product offerings, culture and award-winning customer service. Technology and innovation are providing us with unique ways to enhance the customer travel experience and engage with our customers in new, highly personalized ways,” said Eash Sundaram, Executive Vice President, Chief Digital & Technology Officer at JetBlue. “Okta will enable us to make our customers’ experience with the TrueBlue program not only more personal, helpful and simple, but secure.”
As of January 31, 2018, more than 4,350 customers across nearly every industry and all over the world use the Okta Identity Cloud to manage and secure their extended enterprise, and transform their customers’ experiences. This growth in Q4 FY2018 included new or expanded deployments with Emirates, Farmers Insurance Group, Fidelity National Financial, Indiana Health Exchange, Intercom, MRI Software, Nasdaq, Post Holdings, Snowflake Computing, Wacom and Workfront.
