Okta's approach to compliance

We certify our services against the strictest standards and help you meet compliance requirements through our solutions.

Our secure systems help our customers to earn their users’ trust. We do this in two ways:

There aren’t many companies that have experience running digital commerce in a highly regulated industry such as aviation. Okta brought those two pieces together in a unified way so that we could address physical and electronic security.

Okta helps us be HIPAA compliant … largely because we don’t have to go in and manage and maintain the identity of our customers.
