Salesforce.com reveals details of upcoming Chatterbox, Identity services

Chatterbox will give companies a secure, easy way to share files, Salesforce.com says

By , IDG News Service |  Software

Okta's software provides a centralized and secure way to manage user identities across multiple cloud applications and also integrates with on-premises Microsoft Active Directory systems.

McKinnon expressed little concern about competing with Salesforce.com, saying that Okta's software likely will have a much broader reach than whatever Salesforce.com ends up doing. "It definitely has our attention," he said. "But my sense is that it will be very Salesforce.com-centric."

However, details Salesforce.com released Wednesday suggest it may have more ambitious plans.

Identity will "deliver a single, social, trusted identity service across all enterprise apps, delivered with the simplicity, transparency and trust of the Salesforce Platform," the company said. The product is scheduled for general availability next year, according to Salesforce.com
