Evident ID, Inc., the revolutionary platform that powers identity and
credential verification for many of the world’s fastest-growing
companies, today announced it has partnered with Okta, the leading
independent provider of identity for the enterprise. The integrated
solution enables businesses across industries to access and move
seamlessly between multiple identity verification methods while
dramatically reducing their exposure to sensitive or regulated
information.

Okta and Evident’s integration makes it easier and quicker for companies
to efficiently verify identity to determine access to a platform, while
decreasing the risks and liability associated with holding personally
identifiable information (PII) by minimizing exposure to personal data.

While legacy verification providers have traditionally leveraged narrow
data sets, Evident’s unique technology ensures that users are
comprehensively verified, and have the required credentials to access
sensitive company information through Okta’s platform. Customers can
choose from a variety of identity proofing techniques using a seamless
integration, thereby mitigating risk and instances of fraud in various
stages of the user lifecycle.

“Our partnership with Okta reaffirms the importance of strong identity
proofing and verification processes as part of any business’ identity
and access management efforts,” said David Thomas, CEO of Evident.
“Given the increasing number of fraudulent identities online,
enterprises must start thinking more broadly about identity
verification. Our partnership facilitates this expansive approach by
providing Okta customers with an easy and secure way to confidently
verify an individual’s identity, credentials, and other key facts to
determine the right level of access for each application.”

“The role of identity continues to expand in our increasingly digital
world, and Okta plays a pivotal role by enabling businesses to create
truly customized experiences through a broad set of integrations,” said
Chuck Fontana, Vice President of Integrations and Strategic Partnerships
at Okta. “By integrating with Evident, Okta is giving our customers the
freedom to verify a wide variety of facts about users while also
minimizing their need to handle sensitive data. Ultimately, our goal is
to enable businesses to use whatever technology they need to be
successful, and with Evident Okta customers will be able to interact
with end-user data safely, collaboratively, and with less friction.”
