Press: InfoTrust Expands its Offerings with Okta’s IAM Solution

Cybersecurity practice InfoTrust, has enhanced its industry leading Cloud Security portfolio by partnering with Identity and Access Management (IAM) market leader Okta to offer their multi-factor authentication (MFA) and Single Sign-On (SSO) solutions.

This offering meets a real need for Australian organisations. Although IAM technologies are not new, data from Using IAM in the Age of Megabreaches report from Okta shows that 43% of security professionals worry that inconvenient authentication controls are being ignored/subverted and 33% believe there is a lack of IAM policies within their organisation.

“Through our customer engagements we know that organisations in Australia are struggling to centralise identity and access control and ensure strong, smart authentication methods for their employees” says Dane Meah, InfoTrust CEO. “Credentials and access must be trusted if organisations are going to be secure and minimize their risk of a significant breach. At InfoTrust, we’re in the business of creating secure and productive customers, so we wanted to offer a solution that not only elevates security but improves productivity and efficiencies for end users and the IT organization. Okta was the obvious solution”.

“Okta is a customer first organisation. Everything we do, has customers at its heart and we wouldn’t be able to do that without partners that share this value” says Matt Paull, Director Regional Alliances APAC, Okta. “With its cloud and customer-first approach, InfoTrust represents an ideal partner for us. We are thrilled to be working with them and bring identity-driven security more mainstream and accessible to businesses in Australia.” 

With overseas expansion already underway and the launch of new products and services, InfoTrust is one to watch for 2019.

InfoTrust was founded in 2014 by Dane Meah and Simon McKay. With offices in Sydney, Melbourne, and Manila, InfoTrust now supports over 350 clients including tier 1 banks, federal government, energy providers and insurers.
