Gartner defines the Access Management market as: "The access management (AM) market is defined by customers’ needs to establish, enforce, and manage run-time access controls for internal and external types of identities, as well as machine identities, interacting with cloud, modern standards-based web and legacy web applications" Auth0 focuses on SaaS-delivered developer-centric and Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) use cases.

Access Management

The Magic Quadrant recognized Okta (Auth0) as a Leader based on our Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision.

Auth0 believes that CIAM should do more to balance the three forces of security, privacy and convenience — not just keeping the bad actors out, but also driving customer loyalty and conversion and revenue to create a great experience for our customers, partners, and their end-users.

We believe vendors' experience in the space is a key consideration for Gartner in their Magic Quadrant Evaluations. As stated by one of our customers in their review of Auth0, included in the 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Voice of the Customer Access Management Report, Auth0 comes with great features out-of-the-box. We went live easily with Auth0 as our Identity Provider. The platform/vendor does not just support us in a technical angle, but also understanding our user journey and sharing their experience (with other clients) and what approaches to take to minimize risk and even enhance user experience during the migration. — VP, Core Product Development, Retail industry

Auth0 / Okta Both Recognized as Leaders

Because Okta closed the acquisition of Auth0 in May 2021, we believe we are both represented as vendors in the 2021 Magic Quadrant for Access Management. Our capabilities and visions were evaluated separately, but to great success — both Okta and Auth0 were recognized as Leaders.

As we move forward we will combine Okta’s proven ability to execute and leadership in Workforce and CIAM with Auth0’s role as the innovator of a modern CIAM and developer experience. Together, Okta and Auth0 are the future of identity, working to solve every identity use case for customers.

Next Steps with Okta

Bringing together two strong market leaders is a challenge — but we both see the positive impact this will bring for our customers and for the identity market. We know we have a lot of work ahead of us and will rely on customer feedback. We’re grateful for your trust as we continue to innovate with Okta.
