Xello and Okta partner to modernise identity for regulated enterprise

Melbourne, Australia 19 November 2019 - Xello, a Melbourne-based provider of digital business solutions, today announces a new partnership with Okta, the leading independent provider of identity for the enterprise, to offer regulated enterprises new solutions that focus on modernising their cloud identity framework.

Through this partnership, customers will be able to accelerate their adoption of cloud and multi-cloud services and identity and access management capabilities with the Okta Identity Cloud platform, leveraging Xello’s extensive identity experience and integration expertise to extend secure authentication with Single-Sign On (SSO) and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to any enterprise application, across cloud, hybrid and on-premises environments.

Today, continuous digital transformation and cloud computing has made it possible for users to have ready access to resources at any location across multiple devices. Properly configuring permissions and restrictions on what organisational identities can access both internally and externally, while controlling it in an efficient manner and securing the data, is crucial for enterprises with an increasing number of cloud-based applications.

With Okta, Xello introduces several new modern identity solutions – the Modern Identity Assessment & Modern Identity Integration - that better helps Australian regulated enterprises enable seamless, secure authentication for any application and environment.

“Xello is an exciting partner to join our ecosystem in ANZ, specifically focusing on the Victorian region and helping customers drive greater adoption of the Okta solution and achieve better digital outcomes,” said Matt Paull, Director of Regional Alliances APAC, Okta. “Xello is a key partnership as Okta continues its accelerated growth in the region.”

“Xello’s partnership with Okta will massively accelerate Xello’s Security & Identity practice for our regulated enterprise clients,” said Peter Lillywhite, Managing Director of Xello. “Xello has a very rich history of experience with Identity and Access Management solutions and combining this with the leading identity vendor in the market will allow Xello to position itself as the leader in Modern Identity and Access Management solutions for regulated enterprise clients.”

“Applications and data are increasingly managed outside of company networks and infrastructure and are fully accessible on any device from any location. User access to these external apps and data must be seamlessly authenticated to ensure sensitive resources always stay secured, but current identity management processes often remain decentralised and unable to streamline the user experience. This is where Okta excels.”

With the new partnership, Xello customers can now benefit from the combined value of Xello’s deep identity expertise and Okta’s market-leading Identity Cloud services to leverage a more modern solution approach to user identity across the business.

“We are excited to partner with Okta to help regulated enterprises modernise their identity and access capabilities with one unified solution that authenticates and protects users across all devices, environments and resources,” Lillywhite continued.
