An account takeover (ATO) is an identity attack where the hacker gains unauthorised access to your users’ accounts and steals money, credentials, or information. Did you know that 80% of targeted takeovers can be traced to weak or stolen passwords? That’s why Okta uses smart adaptive policies and strong authentication to prevent identity theft and cybercrime against your business and valuable consumer accounts.
The world’s largest companies trust Okta with their customer accounts
What types of cyber crime does Okta’s account takeover solution prevent?
We know attackers leverage a number of different attack vectors, so we built protections against the most common attack types.
We automatically analyse the risk from contextual signals associated with login requests, with no user input or interaction required. Our AMFA serves as powerful protection against cyber crime and account takeovers by:
Analysing signals associated with each authentication request
Using AI/ML in conjunction with a heuristics-based policy engine for security coverage
Integrating Okta’s threat-feed to provide insight into an attacker’s profile
Eliminating friction for legitimate users by only prompting MFA during elevated risk scenarios
As a vendor-neutral platform, Okta prioritises integration with the best security solutions available. We are not beholden to proprietary stacks, which frees you to choose the technologies that are just right for your customers. Take advantage of our best-in-class partnerships to provide complete protection against account takeovers.
