Okta partners with Google to secure cloud identities

Identity management vendor Okta and Google have announced a partnership aimed at getting enterprises to secure their users’ identities in the cloud.

As part of the deal, Google will use Okta as its preferred identity provider for Google Apps enterprise customers. Businesses that buy a ton of Apps for Work licenses will also be encouraged to use Okta’s services to manage how their users connect to business apps. 

Okta’s identity management product makes it possible for companies to create one central directory of employees, who can then use a single set of credentials to get into business software that they need to use. That includes Google Apps and a variety of other services like Salesforce, Yammer, and ServiceNow.
