Okta is recognized in Gartner’s 2017 Cool Vendors in Healthcare Providers report, which highlights organizations that are bringing technological innovation and modernization to the healthcare industry. Gartner says, “Gartner’s Cool Vendors research helps CIOs stay ahead of the IT technology curve, while making better strategic decisions about technology and services.”

In the report, Gartner analysts make three recommendations, one being that healthcare provider CIOs: “Bring in a centralized, cloud-based identity and access management solution to protect the access and usage of the data. This cloud-centric approach to secure access provides easily managed and protected connections between IT services and the data.”

At Okta, we know that protecting personal health and identity information is paramount within the healthcare industry. We partner with HIPAA-covered entities and their service providers to secure this very data, while enabling these partners to quickly innovate and remain leaders in the industry. In 2016, we debuted our HIPAA Compliant Service instance to better serve the highly-regulated and security-conscious healthcare industry. From end-to-end encryption of data to dedicated hardware, Okta enables organizations to manage employee, vendor and patient identities with a single, secure solution.
