Identity as a Service – Accelerating time to value for our customers.

Puleng Technologies, a leading South African User and Data Security practice, has partnered with Okta, the recognised leader in the Identity as a Service (IdaaS) Market, to provide a identity management platform that will enable clients to decrease costs, increase efficiency and secure their IT environments, and ultimately enable businesses to grow faster. Providing innovative yet simple solutions to their customers needs is a priority for Puleng Technologies. This Identity Management platform provides one service from which IT teams can manage people, applications, and policies across all cloud and web applications through a single sign-on portal securing and connecting all applications while enhancing the end user experience. Nick Miles, Channel Director EMEA at Okta, said: "Many businesses view BYOD as an IT problem with a new set of challenges regarding access management, security and control across the business. Okta is bringing an enterprise grade solution to secure these applications and create a seamless end-user experience". The platform integrates with existing directories and identity systems, as well as thousands of on-premises, cloud and mobile applications, and runs on a secure, reliable and extensively audited cloud-based platform. An administrative dashboard contains a summary of key usage and activity statistics, notifications of any problems or outstanding work to be completed, as well as shortcuts to the most commonly performed tasks. For end-users, this means receiving a customised homepage providing single sign-on and self-services across applications.

Muhammad Mayet, Director of Security at Puleng, said " As a company, we are driven to provide exceptional client service. Working with Okta will allow us to offer our customers a solution that is different and a technology that provides business benefits and a rapid return-on-investment. Local companies will be able to accelerate the time to value for IDaaS implementations by leveraging the experienced team at Puleng to integrate, develop and deploy this solution."
