Who was at the Okta Oktane conference?
Manak Ahluwalia, CEO of Waltham, Mass.-based Okta partner Aqueduct Technologies – a member of CRN’s 2022 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 – said his customers have enjoyed the simplicity of Okta’s single-sign on authentication platform.
As more customers embrace cloud-based services, a way to secure identity and access and streamline the user provisioning process also becomes more important, Ahluwalia said. The same goes for customers going through mergers and acquisitions and ones building more robust processes for a growing workforce outside of the office.
“It just gives them a really good workflow to be able to universally take somebody in and out of the entire application stack,” he said.
He said that if Okta invests in its channel partner program, he’d like to seemore enablement around its applications as well as its identity storage features plus more best practice integration guides for interoperability with Okta.
Okta used the conference to unveil its Okta Customer Identity Cloud for managing authentication, onboarding new users and streamlining registration and login for devices, stacks and platforms; announce improvements for its Workforce Identity Cloud and to tease upcoming changes to its partner program.
