Gain an effective protection system.
Reliability in security is essential to a successful identity management program. That’s why Okta takes a comprehensive approach, baking security features into every aspect of the business — from user authentication to password management, to cross-application use.
Security starts with people.
Okta gives your users a secure, single sign-on experience, where they can access all of their enterprise apps in one location. The security and compliance features of Okta simplify the cloud experience for your users — and reduce the risk of lost, weak, reused or physically stolen passwords.
Enhance compliance with a central platform.
Okta practices security at the molecular level by implementing best practices into every step of the development lifecycle. Protection is built into checkpoints from development to design, to the moment a build is validated and deployed.
Working with both external researchers and its own internal team, Okta regularly validates the design and service implementation. Plus, all access to and communication with the Okta service ensures secure and verified connections.
Protect the data.
In the age of digital transformation, data security is more important than ever. Okta guards customer data with a state-of-the-art key management system. Using next-generation cell technology, customer data is encrypted at the data field level from the browser to the agent.
Protection of customer data is audited in accordance with FedRAMP, NIST 800-53, HIPAA and ISO 27001 requirements. Okta also employs internal, third-party and customer-based research teams to perform penetration testing for vulnerabilities.
The security and compliance features of the Okta security platform support an underlying permissions model designed to give you flexible control over access permissions — and administrative rights for your users. The platform is simple to use and includes flexibility to add numerous roles with different permission levels.
