Reducing risk: The case for stronger identity and access management
Cyberattacks are on the rise, driven in large part by ransomware and data breaches. The most popular ways to start an attack? By exploring users via phishing schemes and by obtaining weak or stolen credentials.
Although not a silver bullet, strong identity and access management can greatly reduce the likelihood of ransomware attacks and data breaches by increasing your user security and by taking weak or stolen credentials out of the cyberattack chain.
Okta Advanced Server Access (Okta ASA) extends the Okta capabilities to the infrastructure, reducing the likelihood of lateral movements and privilege escalation via identities.
Together, Okta and AWS deliver the Okta Advanced Server Access QuickStart for AWS.
The QuickStart accelerates Okta security adoption across AWS, providing an initial environment with Okta security over Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).
