Keeping organizations secure, while improving business and user productivity in today’s accelerating threat environment, continues to be a challenge for today’s IT and security leaders. As we have seen time and time again, the ongoing threat from cyber attacks have demonstrated their ability to change the global business environment in an instant. As organizations adopt cloud first, IoT and mobile strategies, their attack surface widens and provides new pathways for attackers to exploit unprotected businesses. Once the attackers get in, they seek access to the heart of the enterprise with the intent to cause costly harm that can include damaged reputations, financial losses and stolen intellectual property.
Today’s business success can depend on how rapidly and securely a dynamic workforce – including employees, contractors, consultants, partners and vendors – can access the systems, applications and data needed to be productive. This broad reach of application access must be managed, monitored and most importantly, secured. Besides increasing complexity, change is the one constant. Users come and go, change roles, leave and join different user groups and are given “temporary” permissions. New applications are acquired or licensed, connected, dis-connected, moved to the cloud and retired.
Enterprises, which employ a mix of on-premises, cloud and hybrid applications, need flexibility and control to support these heterogeneous, broad-reaching environments. On top of these challenges, enterprises in highly-regulated industries need certification of user access to facilitate compliance requirements.
Key Access Challenges:
Cybercriminals and malicious insiders actively look to exploit user or application credentials to compromise enterprise systems and data such as:
- End users demand access to everything – including web apps, SaaS apps, operating systems, databases, and privileged and non-privileged resources – from everywhere, at all times
- IT scrambles to keep the network secure, productive, manageable and in compliance
- CISOs struggle to centralize policy definition, policy enforcement, visibility and access control across all the systems, while preventing data breaches due to unauthorized access
SailPoint + Okta + CyberArk Extends Your Security Perimeter:
The combined solutions from SailPoint, Okta and CyberArk combat these challenges by providing enterprises with automated access and governance controls that work across today’s highly diverse IT environment. Now, organizations can leverage Okta’s access management solutions to provide secure, single-sign-on (SSO) and adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), coupled with SailPoint’s AI-driven identity governance, allowing users to seamlessly authenticate while governing access across any platform or application on-premises or in the cloud. And the integration of CyberArk Privileged Account Security enables a unified, single pane of glass view of all identities, including privileged identities (individuals and applications) and access entitlements across the enterprise.
Together, SailPoint, Okta and CyberArk provide an integrated approach for strategic identity management and privileged access security. With these integrations, enterprises can ensure key identity functions are secure and automated, authorization policies are enforced, and both privileged and non-privileged user access activity is documented and compliant. Together, these solutions provide enterprises with the automated access and governance controls needed to mitigate the risk of a security breach, enforce compliance policies, while managing the demands of today’s modern workforce.
- SailPoint provides AI and policy-driven identity governance to help keep organizations secure and compliant while improving operational efficiencies
- Okta provides secure access for entire businesses via SSO and MFA
- CyberArk provides comprehensive privileged access protection, monitoring, detection, alerting and reporting on all privileged users
Seamless and Secure Access
The integration of SailPoint, Okta and CyberArk creates a complete solution to give end users seamless, secure access to all their resources. Okta provides authentication for users within corporate directories (AD/LDAP) or outside of directories, such as contractors. Together, Okta and CyberArk extend SSO into privileged access beyond web applications, including Windows servers, *NIX and databases.
Intelligent Lifecycle Management
SailPoint provides the ability to centrally manage access for all identity types and automatically grant and revoke access as identity status’ and roles change. SailPoint also extends lifecycle management into CyberArk, allowing centralized provisioning and deprovisioning of privileged account access based on user role and event changes.
Complete Visibility and Control
SailPoint offers complete visibility and governance for traditional and cloud applications, cloud platforms (e.g. AWS, Azure, and GCP), and file storage. Additionally, govern access for privileged accounts managed via CyberArk. SailPoint provides the visibility, control and automation needed to ensure user entitlements are appropriate for their current job/role, and access is frequently certified to maintain a secure and compliant infrastructure.
The combination of SailPoint, Okta and CyberArk enables next level identity management and secure access to address today’s ever-changing threat landscape. The integration leverages SailPoint’s AI and policy-driven identity management to ensure access is always appropriate and secure. Okta provides adaptive MFA that reduces the risk of data breaches – exploiting identities by ensuring secure authentication to all corporate resources. SailPoint creates authorization policies and separation of duties enforced during lifecycle management, providing comprehensive control and visibility of who has access to what – from identities to accounts to entitlements – while maintaining a secure user experience. CyberArk detects and proactively prevents the most sophisticated attacks that leverage the misuse of privileged access.
Together, SailPoint, Okta and CyberArk provide an integrated approach to securely manage and govern all users’ including both privileged and non-privileged, application and data access throughout the employee/partner lifecycle, from onboarding through off-boarding. With these integrated solutions enterprises can ensure key identity functions are secure and automated, authorization policies are enforced, and user access activity is documented and compliant. The end result: enterprises can maintain a high level of user productivity, compliance and security.
