Okta Partners With Box to Support Contextual Access Management for Box for EMM

OKtaOkta,  an Identity Management solutions provider and newly crowned unicorn, has announced a new partnership with online file sharing and content management service Box to support contextual access management and secure employee access and data “from every endpoint,” according to a statement.

With Okta and Box for EMM, Okta customers can securely enable mobile access to Box, set policies that define how and when users can access enterprise resources, and enforce enrollment in mobility management.

Okta uses integrated identity and mobility management to protect enterprise data and simplify the end user experience through automated mobile app Single Sign-On (SSO) and unified provisioning across endpoints.

“When people are able to act on a constant, uninterrupted stream of context-relevant information, and organizations are able keep that information safe, they can do amazing things,” said Todd McKinnon, CEO, Okta. “Our partnership with Box is a powerful one because we uniquely help companies achieve both productivity and security. Okta’s contextual access management ensures that only secure devices can access Box, without the end user ever being aware of the added security layer. It’s critical that we put the right data, in the right hands, at the right time, and our partnership with Box ensures we do just that.”

According to Okta’s Businesses at Work report, Box is one of the top three most popular applications utilized by Okta customer organizations.

The Okta and Box for EMM integration is available in preview, and will be in production on Wednesday March 23, 2016.
