The New Okta Developer Experience: Secure Applications, APIs, and Infrastructure

Okta, Inc.’s new Okta Starter Developer Edition provides developers tools to embed Okta authentication, authorisation, and user management into applications at scale. The new Okta Starter Developer Edition is now available at no cost for up to 15,000 monthly active users. It delivers coverage for multiple applications and includes access to many of Okta’s Customer Identity products from Adaptive Multi-factor Authentication to API Access Management. Developers can access enhanced documentation, sample applications, and new integrations spanning continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), microservices and APIs, among more.

“Okta’s vision is to enable everyone to safely use any technology,” said Diya Jolly, Chief Product Officer, Okta. “Developers are foundational to bringing that vision to life, and it’s our goal to make every piece of the development process easier with Okta. Developers can ramp up at no cost with the Starter Developer Edition, and our reimagined developer experience delivers tools that seamlessly work with developers’ toolchains across whatever hybrid, cloud, or multi-cloud environment they’re building on. If developers need to do something with identity, they can do it with Okta.”

“MongoDB was created to unleash the power of software and data for innovators everywhere,” said Benjamin Cefalo, Director, Product Management, MongoDB. “And we’re drawn to technologies that share our DNA to solve complex scale and agility challenges. With Okta, we put the power of identity security to work. The Okta platform and APIs enable our teams to move rapidly and build highly scalable, customisable, and secure experiences that delight users.”

Unleashing The Okta Identity Cloud for Developers
Developers can immediately benefit from more of the Okta Identity Cloud’s power than ever before with the new Okta Starter Developer Edition available at no cost for up to 15,000 monthly active users. In addition, this new offering includes powerful Okta Customer Identity products including Adaptive Multi-factor Authentication, enabling developers to build more securely for free.

Auth For All: Secure Applications, APIs, and Infrastructure
The new Okta Starter Developer Edition is complemented by a reimagined development experience and redesigned console for all Okta customers that delivers faster time-to-market and full application development lifecycle support. Developers can now get up-and-running rapidly through enhanced documentation, guides, and sample applications for the most popular languages and frameworks including Go, Java, JavaScript, Python, VueJS, React Native, and Spring Boot. In addition, powerful new integrations with DevOps, SecOps, and API Security tooling means developers can leverage the power of identity across a variety of use cases to secure applications, APIs, and infrastructure. New integrations include Heroku to automate identity across CI/CD pipelines, Kong to protect APIs, and an updated Okta Terraform provider to replicate Okta configuration across environments.

“Kong enables developers, enterprise architects, and infrastructure administrators to address their application connectivity needs in today’s cloud native world,” said Reza Shafii, VP of Products at Kong Inc. “The capabilities provided by our Kong Konnect platform are amplified by deeply integrating with other leading platforms like Okta. With Okta and Kong working together, two critical factors in modern application development become significantly easier to deliver on – connectivity and authorization – giving application owners back more of their hard-earned time and enabling them to build more reliable digital experiences at a more rapid pace.”
