Zero Trust Security

Zero Trust starts with identity. Identity starts with Okta.

Identity-first approach to Zero Trust security

Identity is the core of a Zero Trust strategy. In recent years, we’ve seen the perimeter moving to the identity layer and a rise in identity-based cyber attacks. As a result, people are now the most critical component of the Zero Trust ecosystem.

An identity-first approach to a Zero Trust Security strategy ensures the right people have the right level of access, to the right resources, in the right context, and that access is assessed continuously—all without adding friction for the user. Getting there can be easier said than done, but we're here to help.
