Combine identity and email security to safeguard your enterprise
Okta and Proofpoint together help security and IT teams defend against identity and email-based phishing attacks, reduce the likelihood of account compromise for all users, and help keep the enterprise secure. Proofpoint offers powerful tools for preventing, detecting and remediating phishing emails, and Okta delivers pervasive strong authentication, so authorized users can easily and securely access resources, while credential thieves are locked out. By combining identity and email security, you protect users and their accounts and enable a swift, prevention, detection, and response to phishing threats.
Automatically detect and disarm phishing attacks
When Proofpoint’s Targeted Attack Prevention (TAP) email gateway detects emails with malicious links or attachments, it alerts Proofpoint’s workflow orchestration tool, Threat Response Auto-Pull (TRAP). TRAP automatically quarantines suspicious emails and integrates with the Okta Identity Cloud to strengthen the authentication requirements for targeted users, such as requiring Okta MFA, restricting access, and more. Legitimate users can authenticate simply and securely with an additional factor, but the stolen username and password in the hands of an attacker will be insufficient to gain access: access is denied, and the phishing attack is neutralized.
