01 Sep 16

Okta is one of the leading providers of identity and device management in Australia and it’s just announced an expanded partnership with Google.

Together, the two companies will deliver a flexible, multi-cloud reference architecture that enables large enterprises to securely deploy and manage Google Apps.

They will also accelerate the transition of large enterprises’ to a secure, multi-cloud, mobile-centric architecture.

Todd McKinnon, CEO of Okta, says for enterprises today, it’s about choosing the best combination of tools to move their business forward.

“Businesses want to leverage Google’s productivity applications, strong account security and multi-cloud infrastructure to get their best work done,” he says.

“Our alliance with Google will make it easy for customers in the large enterprise segment to securely bring on Google Apps so businesses can spend their time innovating instead of securing complex deployments.”

Both Okta and Google believe the expanded partnership will benefit any large enterprise moving to the cloud and looking for modern productivity solutions.

Diane Greene, senior vice president of Google’s cloud businesses, says they’re doing everything to help their customers easily adopt and adapt to the cloud.

“Google and Okta are delivering a comprehensive set of productivity and collaboration tools for large enterprises everywhere, which will make the shift to the cloud smooth, and as we have seen with our current customers, a huge efficiency and cultural boost,” she says.

The expanded partnership will benefit any large enterprise moving to the cloud and looking for modern productivity solutions. The agreement also builds on Okta and Google’s existing partnerships with Google for Work and Android for Work.
