Okta, a San Francisco–based company providing digital identity management tools to large businesses and organizations, plans to open a new office in D.C. this summer.

The 7th St. NW office will open July 16, as the publicly-traded company is looking to be closer to larger customers in both the federal government and private sector such as the Federal Communications Commission, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and Mapbox.

In a statement, CEO Todd McKinnon said D.C. is one of three “global hubs of commerce and policymaking where an increasing number of our customers are based” where the company is expanding. The others are Paris and Stockholm.

“The success of our customers and partners is Okta’s highest priority, and these new offices in three of the world’s most thriving capitals enable us to further our commitment to our customers in the private and public sectors by providing an even more personal touch,” McKinnon said.

Okta offers a cloud platform that allows enterprises to manage passwords, and offer a “single sign-on” for employees using multiple applications. The company says it helps modernize IT and keep data secure.

The office has room for 80 employees, and a spokesperson said the company will be hiring engineering, sales, marketing and administrative roles.
