Okta announces new products and enhancements for Oktane21

 Okta has introduced Okta Privileged Access and Okta Identity Governance for identity governance and administration (IGA).

The Okta Integration Network has also expanded across four main areas, including risk and fraud, customer data orchestration, data privacy and compliance, and the software development lifecycle. These new integrations leverage identity to help solve highly complex digital transformation challenges from securing transactions to digital onboarding.

In addition, the new Okta Starter Developer Edition has launched to provide developers with tools to embed Okta authentication, authorisation and user management into applications at scale.

Okta Privileged Access unites flexible, least privileged access requirements with identity to enable organisations to accelerate and strengthen Zero Trust security posture. Fine-grained, user, and role-based security policies can be applied seamlessly from a central system to manage who can access what at the infrastructure level. Further, compliance outcomes become streamlined by tying session logging to specific users in a centralised view.

“Thousands of servers power Zoom’s frictionless communications experience,” said Gary Chan, Head of IT Infrastructure & Employee Services, Zoom Video Communications, Inc. “And with millions of people turning to Zoom each and every day, security is very important for us, even at the deepest layers of our technology stack. Okta helps us to secure our core infrastructure at scale with a flexible, identity-centric solution for privileged user access and management.”

Okta Privileged Access will be available in Q1 2022.

Okta Identity Governance harnesses popular workplace tools to promote delegation and self-service, streamlining the evaluation and decision-making of who should have access to what resources and when.

“T-Mobile is constantly transforming its technology to empower our employees with modern tools to best serve customers and keep up with their dynamic expectations,” said Warren McNeel, Senior Vice President of Product & Technology, T-Mobile. “Okta’s powerful automation is a core part of our IAM strategy and enables us to offer our employees seamless, secure access to critical resources in remote or in-office workplace environments. Both the business and customers benefit when automation is closely united with identity. Okta Identity Governance further streamlines user access across a wide array of devices, applications, and digital processes.”
