Cerby and Okta partnership announcement
ALAMEDA, CA – October 3, 2023 – Cerby, the comprehensive access management platform for nonstandard applications, today announced a partnership with the World’s Identity Company, Okta. Cerby's partnership with Okta expands the reach of Okta's identity-powered security platform to nonstandard applications, those that lack support for modern identity and security standards like SAML, SCIM, and APIs.
Customers who leverage Cerby's integration with Okta get a comprehensive solution to apply continuous authentication, authorization, and monitoring capabilities, ensuring that only authorized users can access sensitive data or applications. Ultimately, the Cerby-Okta partnership enables customers to simplify their security stack, reduce costs, and confidently safeguard their digital assets.
"With the growing complexity of IT environments and the increasing frequency of cyber attacks, organizations must have a comprehensive and adaptable approach to identity security," said Cerby CEO and co-founder Belsasar Lepe. "Our partnership with Okta enables us to extend the benefits of identity-powered security to thousands of nonstandard applications that may have been previously vulnerable to attacks. The partnership with Okta strengthens our customers' security posture and aligns with the zero trust security model that is becoming increasingly essential in today's threat landscape."
Organizations often manually manage access to hundreds of applications. They are in this bind due to the applications' lack of support for identity and security standards required in the enterprise to manage at scale. Okta and Cerby allow organizations to automatically:
- Extend Okta's SCIM capabilities to any app regardless of the underlying platform APIs.
- Manage the user lifecycle of onboarding and offboarding access to any app.
- Include any app in a zero trust protect surface.
Oktane, hosted by Okta, is an annual event that brings together industry professionals to delve into cutting-edge advancements in authentication and authorization. This gathering serves as a platform for Okta to unveil its latest products while recognizing and celebrating its partners and customers.
