SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 17 November 2021 - Okta, Inc. (NASDAQ:OKTA), a leading independent provider of identity for the enterprise, today announced the availability of the Okta Identity Cloud and its products in AWS Marketplace in the Asia Pacific region.
AWS Marketplace is a curated digital catalogue that makes it easy for organisations 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, while benefiting from integrations that take advantage of both 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.
