Respond to anomalous login behaviour with risk-based authentication
Okta’s machine learning capabilities allow you to minimise the need for prescriptively creating access policies. With the Risk-Based Authentication solution, Okta establishes a baseline login behaviour for each individual user, and responds to anomalous activity with the appropriate set of strong factors for both high and low risk login attempts.
Pre-authentication sign-on policy evaluation
Stop brute force attacks in its tracks by evaluating Okta’s sign-on policies before credential evaluation thereby reducing the likelihood of account lockouts and improving user experience.
Customisable user experience
Easily embed authentication using our pre-built sign-in widget or customise the experience to match your brand.

Real-time log of events, out-of-the-box reports, integration to SIEMs
Event Hooks allow you to be notified of certain events within Okta so you can more tightly integrate with or kickoff processes in downstream technologies. Potential customisations made possible by Event Hooks include:
- Send authentication context to external database
- Push that a password has been reset or changed to security systems
- Notify an IT Slack channel of suspicious activity
Inline Hooks allow developers to modify inflight Okta processes with custom logic and data from a non-Okta source.
- Registration inline hook: Extend self-service registration with external custom logic or 3rd party services
- SAML and token inline hook: Ability to interrupt the authorisation flow to insert claims into an SAML assertion or JWT
- Password import hook: Validate credentials in your existing system and move them to Okta
