Engineering Manager

Privileged Access Management (PAM) enables organizations to easily automate access control to modern cloud infrastructure. PAM integrates with existing operations tools such as Ansible and Terraform, enabling fast and easy adoption by operations teams, and exposes an easy-to-use API allowing customers to create powerful access control automations.

Now Okta is taking that a step further with the announcement of Okta Privileged Access.
