Okta rolls out identity-based security service

SiliconANGLE reports that the new Security Center service by Okta has entered general availability. Okta says its Security Center uses insights from the company's Customer Identity Cloud offering to help users improve their identity security posture. It delivers a unified view of all authentication events, threat response efficacy, and potential security incidents, while also providing a real-time view of the company's attack protection status, its authentication traffic, and threat monitoring activities. In addition, the service lets customers measure how the security protocols they have implemented is impacting their company employees user experience, allowing them to strike a balance between the two. "As attacks against identity flows get more sophisticated and evolve to bypass detection, security teams often have to go through a learning curve on their own production environments, which can mean delayed detection of attacks and consequent business losses. Security Center leverages our focused expertise in identity security and packages it in a way that security operations professionals can understand and take action, said Jameeka Aaron, Okta's chief information security officer for customer identity.
