SiliconAngle reports that Okta has expanded the availability of its Identity Governance platform to the general public. Okta touts that cloud-native Identity Governance platform, which integrates identity and access management with governance, not only bolsters security risk mitigation but also enhances the efficiency of IT departments. Meanwhile, increasingly sophisticated cyber breaches have prompted the introduction of new Okta Identity Cloud governance features in Okta Identity Governance, including Okta Access Requests, which facilitates streamlined application and resource access. Organizations could also leverage Okta Access Certifications for access review campaign creation and management. Such a feature allows periodic critical resource reviews. Meanwhile, the Enhanced Governance Reports capability enables adherence to audit and compliance requirements. Okta said that such capabilities, in addition to the Okta Lifecycle Management's lifecycle automation features and Okta Workflows' customization and extensibility, could help organizations to better grant proper resource access to their workforce.
