Okta expands single sign-on capability of the Jostle organizational platform, making it easier for users to adopt and use of the cloud-based platform.
Vancouver, BC (August 3, 2011) Jostle® Corporation, a company pioneering a new approach to enterprise software, and Okta, a leading identity and access management service provider, today announced the addition of comprehensive single sign-on capability to Jostle’s powerful, cloud-based enterprise collaboration platform.
With the accelerating number of companies moving into the cloud, demand for secure single sign-on and self-service access to SaaS applications has risen dramatically. Enterprises with dozens or more cloud-based applications face the administrative and financial burden of managing separate identities and access privileges for each software application. By offering the Okta service, Jostle empowers its customers to manage their entire cloud services network efficiently, removing strain on IT resources and facilitating adoption of SaaS applications.
“More and more enterprises have deployed a diversity of applications so that each of their teams can employ the state-of-the art tools that best suit them. In this app-enabled world, enterprises need a secure, simple way to access all of their SaaS solutions at once with one single login,” comments Don Wadsworth, Jostle VP of Sales. “Okta helped us address our customers’ pain with a robust and secure identity management service. Undoubtedly, this new capability will help accelerate end-user adoption of Jostle. We’re very excited to have Jostle’s organizational platform join Okta’s impressive partnership ecosystem.”
“Jostle’s organizational platform represents some of the best values of SaaS computing,” said Roger Goulart, VP, Business Development, Okta. “Their cloud-based approach provides users an easy way to navigate complex organizational structures by integrating existing repositories, so users can have it up and running in less than a day, without the IT headache of creating and managing a new silo of information. Having applications like Jostle in the Okta Application Network is proof of the value and transformation that cloud computing is bringing to the enterprise.”
The Okta service is available immediately on all Jostle Editions.
