Okta extends its channel reach across ANZ

08 Feb 2017

​Okta today announced the joining of three new channel partners to its reseller community, making its intentions for growth clear in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).

airloom, MOQdigital and Unify Solutions are now onboard to grow and increase awareness of the Okta Identity Cloud and drive Okta’s offerings across ANZ.

Okta’s director of channel alliances and ISV relations for APAC, Reno Maglitto says their channel partners play a crucial role in bringing the Okta Identity Cloud to more ANZ enterprises, allowing them to deliver more value to their customers, including new industry verticals, from retail, manufacturing, transportation and the public sector.

“As our customers grow their businesses and adopt multiple cloud services, any efficiency gains become vital for their success,” Maglitto says.

“Saving time and managing resources effectively can provide the edge that businesses need to stay ahead of their competitors. By working in unison with strong channel partners, we will be able to help our customers navigate their cloud and digital journeys.”

MOQdigital and Unify Solutions will work with Okta to delver identity and accesss management to their customer base, while airloom will use Okta to bring a secure and simplified approach to identity and security for its clients.

“Okta integrates seamlessly with Microsoft, particularly Office 365, which we see more and more customers deploying each month,” says Mark Goodall, chairman and CEO of Unify Solutions.

“Partnering with Okta will enable us to offer organisations a solution that is not only secure, but highly efficient, ultimately helping our customers bolster operational productivity.”

According to Malcom Salameh, CRO of airloom, the modern workplace is built around cloud infrastructure, which requires a new way of thinking.

“A key cornerstone of our solution is to leverage the Okta Identity Cloud to unify user identity and provide seamless access to cloud applications from any device,” Salameh says. “We see Okta as the best in class solution to provide our clients the fundamental capability required for their digital transition.”

Business development manager at MOQdigital, Damien Harrison says that more than not, their clients are looking for ways to streamline productivity for their workforce and are deploying cloud applications to make this happen.

“Working closely with Okta allows us to offer best of breed solutions that are secure and easy to manage and implement,” Harrison concludes.
