Okta is a bold, silicon valley, on-demand software company delivering a product that helps enterprise IT organizations make the move to SaaS and cloud based computing. (apps like salesforce,com, google apps, webex, go to meeting, etc..)
We are very passionate about delivering a product that is as easy to use as a consumer website (google, yahoo, ebay, flickr, facebook, etc..) but delivers robust functionality for employees, IT, and business executives.
To do that we offer a complete solution with a catalog of pre-integrated applications and deep integration with Active Directory that provides IT centralized user provisioning, access management, and reporting. Every employee gets a personalized, Okta single sign-on home page for all of their applications, and business executives get critical reports on application usage and ROI that give them insight into the value they are getting from their investments.
The Okta team has built, marketed, and sold market leading, on demand solutions including Salesforce.com, Successfactors, and Rearden Commerce and is backed by premiere silicon valley angel and venture investors.
The name "Okta" was chosen specifically because it is an actual meteorological term that is a measure of cloud coverage in the sky (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okta). In effect our solution is helping customers manage their cloud coverage.
