Sydney, Oct 27 2015 – VMtech, one of Australia’s leading Hybrid Cloud Solutions Specialist is excited to announce their partnership with Okta, the leading Identity and Mobility Management Company.
This partnership extends VMtech’s Security and Cloud offerings to include Identity Access Management (IAM), which VMtech is experiencing as a key area of concern with customers who are considering moving all or some of their applications to the Cloud.
Len Findlay, CEO at VMtech commented, “As companies transition more applications to the Cloud, the associated security risks regarding who is accessing these applications and what these applications can access, are both serious and frequent concerns. The partnership between VMtech and Okta not only augments VMtech’s expertise in the field of IAM, but also gives our customers the assurance that their sensitive data and applications are secure through a proven and cost effective identity management platform”.
“Some of the feedback that we have received during our recent joint customer engagements with Okta, arise around the depth offered by Okta’s identity management platform and its ability to handle both multifactor authentication (MFA) and single sign-on (SSO)”, said Richard Clark, CTO at VMtech. “Okta’s faster and easier integration will enable our customers to be more willing to accelerate their adoption of identity and access management services”.
“Since launching in Australia in June 2014, we’ve seen impressive demand for our integrated identity and mobility solution. Our partnership with VMtech will only accelerate our growth, bringing Okta’s offerings to VMtech’s wide array of customers,” said Graham Person, Okta’s Regional Vice President of JAPAC. “Our products give employees, partners and customers access to the best tools available, while enforcing strong security protections, which is exactly what VMtech customers looking to move to the cloud need”.
