Okta is launching a new software developer kit and application programming interface that will enable developers to build biometric and push notification sign-ins.

According to Okta, security and authentication services need to acknowledge mobile-first workflows and technologies.

New York, New Jersey exposure notification apps tap Apple-Google API

New York and New Jersey on Thursday announced the launch of new COVID-19 apps based on the Apple and Google Exposure Notification framework.

New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy made the announcement on Thursday. In a press release, Gov. Cuomo’s office also noted that the apps are interoperable with similar exposure notification titles recently released in Pennsylvania and Delaware, meaning the apps provide patchwork coverage across state lines.

With integrated apps, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware were able to create a regional COVID Alert network similar to one in development on the West Coast. The state of Connecticut has also announced that it will launch a similar exposure notification system “in the coming weeks.”

“Testing is to identify a person, so you can isolate and quarantine that person and then find the connections from that person, and that’s contact tracing. We have

Noyo raises $12.5M Series A to keep building its health insurance API business

This morning, Noyo, a startup that provides APIs that link players in the health insurance space, announced that it has closed a $12.5 million Series A round of funding.

The new capital comes less than a year after the startup disclosed that it had raised around $4 million in pre-seed and seed capital, and that its product was already in the market.

At the time it was clear that Noyo had a laser focus on its part of the healthcare world. Now, nearly a year later, the company confirmed to TechCrunch during conversations surrounding its new capital raise that it’s keeping its focus for now.

Linking the carriers and platforms of other insurance verticals, or varietals, will have to wait.

But Noyo is working in an enormous market, namely the U.S. health insurance universe, one that could provide it with space to grow for years to come. The startup

Norway will use the Apple-Google API to replace its failed COVID-19 app

After the privacy issues surrounding its first attempt at a contact tracing app, Norway is planning to develop a second, this time using the privacy-focused technology produced in Apple and Google’s joint project.

Norway is set to become the next country to develop an app for tracing the spread of COVID-19 across the population, one that will use Apple and Google’s contact tracing system. The technology, which is used to keep track of when people get in close proximity to others and whether they are at risk of infection from a carrier, will be at the heart of the new app for Norway, following the country’s troubled first attempt.

Health minister Bent Hoeie advised to Reuters on Monday that the app would use the Apple-Google system, instead of a home-grown version. “This app is purely for tracking infection, it doesn’t store data centrally,” stressed Hoeie.

The initial

Covid-19 crisis spurred greater API development, survey suggests

While the Covid-19 crisis wreaked havoc with many corporate IT plans — pushing many, at least temporarily, into survival mode — API development either remained constant or even expanded. APIs also have been playing a pivotal role in helping organizations operate on a more virtual level. 

That’s the word from a recent survey of 13,500 developers and other IT professionals, released by Postman. While Postman, an API development platform, obviously has a horse in this race, the sheer magnitude of this study makes it worth a deep look.

The role of APIs in digital transformation efforts cannot be understated, as they are the building blocks for organizations becoming both producers and consumers of software. As observed in previous posts. Even the most mainstream of enterprises (say, retailers or toy manufacturers) are behaving more and more like software companies, increasingly reaching out to customers with APIs and digital
