Okta/Stormpath: a developer identity acceleration play

Adrian Bridgwater Adrian Bridgwater Profile: Adrian Bridgwater


Identity cloud provider company Okta has snuggled up with identity management company Stormpath.

Who brings what to the party?

This new union is designed to bring forward Okta Identity Cloud as an authentication layer for developers to implement at the app, service, device and user level.

Stormpath meanwhile provides identity management for applications and APIs.

The Stormpath team, including co-founders Alex Salazar and Les Hazlewood, will join Okta to develop its identity platform for developers. Additionally, Okta has acquired a license to the Stormpath technology.

Why is this important? 

The need for a unified identity across every app, service and device is indeed increasing as every company ‘transforms’ their business with digital services.

Founded in 2011, Stormpath developed one of the industry’s first identity management APIs for software teams building web, mobile and API-driven applications.

    We are disappointed with the StormPath 5-month shutdown window because it seems to be a rush job. We invested time and money in their product only to be shoved at Okta who has a completely different pricing model. When I spoke to an Okta sales person, I had to inform him of the StormPath pricing. Unfortunately, Okta does not initially appear to have a package that would interest me since their starter package offers services that I do not require for a much higher price. This is not a fit for my small company and we will have to explore other options.
