Identity and access management company, Okta recently announced plans to expand its platform to two key areas: privileged access and identity management. The company is known for its identity access management product, which allows companies the ability to sign on to multiple cloud products with a single sign-on. While the first area, privileged access, gives businesses the ability to provide access to a limited number of people and key administrative services within an organization on demand, the governance area provides a way for security teams to conduct detailed reports and search for identity-related issues.
Some key features of privileged access include the ability to restrict access to a specific time slot and record a video of the session so that there is a trace of exactly what happened while someone was accessing the system. For Octa CEO Todd McKinnon, these features provide additional levels of protection for these sensitive accounts. Looking at the other area, the governance piece provides a way for security teams to perform detailed reports and search for identity issues. While both products were recently announced at the company’s virtual octane customer conference, they will not be available until the first quarter of the following year.
