Okta, Inc. a leading independent provider of identity for the enterprise, announced the availability of the Okta Identity Cloud products in AWS Marketplace in the Asia Pacific region.
AWS Marketplace is a curated digital catalog that makes it easy for organizations to discover, procure, entitle, provision, and govern third-party software.
Businesses across APAC are now able to quickly and seamlessly purchase both Okta’s Customer Identity and Workforce Identity products in AWS Marketplace.
Integrations take advantage of Okta and AWS, including AWS Control Tower, a service that provides the easiest way to set up and govern a secure, multi-account AWS environment.
AWS Control Tower makes Okta more powerful and effective for enterprises.
Through this new integration with AWS Control Tower, organizations can further optimize identity management with simplified single sign-on experiences, user provisioning and password management to streamline multi-cloud access management.
