The Challenge

  • Cloud and digital transformation initiatives bring significant advantages, but introduce new security challenges
  • There is more data to protect, in more locations–including cloud, mobile, and on-prem–than ever before
  • Organizations need end-to-end visibility into security threats and security controls across the entire IT environment, from applications and data all the way to the end users themselves

Security teams can automate response actions against these threats, like disabling suspicious users or forcing multi-factor authentication, to protect the enterprise

Enhance security through identity and analytics

Okta’s identity solution provides a wealth of information about user activities, such as what resources are being accessed and when, from what devices and locations, and other authentication activities. Sumo Logic collects this user-centric security data, along with other security-related data in your environment, enabling increased visibility into suspicious users or endpoints, as well as security controls to protect the enterprise.

Equip your teams with a clear security picture

Visual dashboards present this aggregated data clearly and concisely, using machine learning to spot inconsistencies and issue alerts, allowing you to monitor and troubleshoot any security issues as they arise. Additionally, Okta data feeding into Sumo Logic enables long-term log retention and forensic analysis.

Okta UserActivity
