Okta Acqui-hired Stormpath

  • ‘Note - this is from the Axios Pro Rata newsletter’
  • ‘Okta, a San Francisco-based identity management company valued at $1.2 billion by venture capitalists, has acqui-hired Stormpath, a San Mateo, Calif.-based provider of authentication, authorization and user management solutions for web and app developers. No financial terms were disclosed. Stormpath had raised over $20 million in VC funding from Flybridge Capital Partners, Scale Venture Partners, NEA and Pelion Venture Partners. http://tcrn.ch/2lw4AKc’

  • Stormpath raised almost $25M since 2012
  • ’Notably, this is not a full acquisition: Okta’s co-founder and COO Frederic Kerrest, who answered questions about the transaction over email, did not specify who would retain ownership of the technology. We have followed up with him, CEO Todd McKinnon and an Okta spokesperson to see if we can get more details.’
