This week, Gartner released its second Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide, and Okta was once again named a Leader. They placed highest in “ability to execute” in the report, a recognition Okta also held last year.
Gartner’s recognition follows continued momentum for Okta, including its recent customer conference, Oktane18, where the company launched Sign In with Okta, Project Onramp, API Products for One App and ThreatInsight. At Oktane18, Okta also unveiled new partnerships with VMware’s Workspace ONE and Workplace by Facebook. Okta also continues to expand globally, recently announcing that it will be doubling the size of its San Jose office and opening new offices in Washington, D.C., Paris and Stockholm.
According to Gartner, “Access management applies to technologies that use access control engines to provide centralized authentication, single sign-on (SSO), session management and authorization enforcement for target applications in multiple use cases (e.g., B2E, B2B and B2C). Target applications may have traditional web application architectures, native mobile architectures or hybrid architectures. Increasingly, target systems include APIs. Smart or constrained devices with or without human operators may be incorporated as well. Applications may run on the customers’ premises or in the cloud.”
