Carahsoft Partners With Okta to Bring Secure and Simplified Approach to Identity and Security to the Public Sector

Okta Identity Cloud Now Available on Carahsoft's GSA Schedule and SEWP V Contracts

RESTON, VA--(Marketwired - October 25, 2016) - Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced a partnership with Okta, a leading provider of identity for the enterprise. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Okta's master government aggregator, making the company's cloud-based identity and mobility management solutions available to the public sector and channel partners via Carahsoft's GSA Schedule 70 and SEWP V contract vehicles.

"Our partnership with Carahsoft and its ecosystem of reseller partners will expand the public sector's access to leading identity management solutions, while giving government agencies the flexibility to choose best-of-breed cloud services without sacrificing security," said Bill Fitzgerald, Vice President of Channel Sales at Okta. "We look forward to leveraging Carahsoft's government expertise to expand our reach within the federal, state, local, and education markets."

With government agencies deploying new mobile applications and portals for government employees and citizens, identity has become a major security priority for government IT departments as they modernize their infrastructure. By using a solution such as the Okta Identity Cloud, organizations can connect and protect employees, partners, suppliers and constituents. With deep integrations to over 5,000 apps, the Okta Identity Cloud enables simple and secure access from any device, empowering users to work faster, stay secure and do significant work using whichever services and apps they need.

"With users now able to access government apps and portals from any device at any time, we needed a strategic partner in identity and security," said Michael Shrader, Vice President of Emerging Solutions at Carahsoft. "The Okta Identity Cloud complements existing SaaS platforms and mobile apps, making it easy and cost-effective for agencies to embrace new technology trends at a large scale while eliminating additional security risks. We are excited to add them to our portfolio and make them available to our customers and reseller partners."
