2016 Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Management as a Service

Gartner Names Okta a Leader for Third Year
Running in Gartner's IDaaS Magic Quadrant

Gartner recently named Okta as a leader in the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Management as a Service (IDaaS). This is the third consecutive year Okta has been recognized as a leader, and the only vendor named a leader for all three years of the report’s existence. Okta also achieved the highest overall position for its ability to execute for the third year in a row.

Thousands of customers and millions of people use Okta every day. We’ve been rapidly accelerating the pace of our innovation by introducing a new identity and governance (IGA) product and adding new features Okta’s enterprise mobility management (EMM) product. We’ve also gained traction with major security standards, including becoming the first IDaaS vendor to earn Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) STARLevel 2 Attestation, achieving ISO 27001 certification, the launch of an EU-based data center and HIPAA compliant data center, and pursuing authorization with FedRAMP. We believe that Okta’s placement in this year’s IDaaS Magic Quadrant is a testament to this progress, and to the continued success of our customers and partners.

This Magic Quadrant rates vendors on their ability to be global, general-purpose identity and access management (IAM) service providers for multiple use cases. The vendors in this Magic Quadrant must provide some level of functionality in all of the following IAM functional areas: identity governance and administration; access, including user authentication, single sign-on (SSO), and authorization enforcement; and identity log monitoring and reporting.
