Code42 and Okta Collaborate to speed up the Right Response During insider Risk Investigations.

Code42 | April 07, 2021

Code42, the pioneer in Insider Risk Management, today reported that its IncydrTM data risk detection and response product has been integrated with Okta Identity Cloud, the leading user identity management solution. The integration combines Code42's unique data-centric approach to insider risk with Okta's leading approach to identity and access, making it easier for security buyers to build Zero Trust data security environments. Since the integration automates access controls, provides additional user context, and automates response workflows for departing or high-risk users, security teams can execute smoother, more effective investigations. Today's distributed and remote workforces, enabled by the advancement of collaboration technology, have generated an exponential risk of data leakage by shifting the perimeter from the network to the endpoint,” said Ananth Appathurai, senior vice president of strategic partnerships and ecosystem at Code42. “The Code42-Okta integration is a powerful way to pair access controls with best practices for insider threats to enhance security postures.” Without proper access controls, data can be deliberately or accidentally exfiltrated. Users that exhibit potentially risky file behavior will have their permissions lowered so they no longer have access to confidential files thanks to the integration. Around the same time as permissions are restricted, a security investigation is conducted to review suspicious file movements so that effective response measures can be taken. Okta administrators and information security teams will use this mechanism to accelerate and coordinate cross-functional initiatives to reduce insider risk in their organizations. “Identity is crucial in KNOWING who is accessing data and where they are accessing it,” said Stephen Lee, vice president, technical strategy and partnerships at Okta, Inc. “Okta's goal is to enable everyone to use any technology safely. This integration begins in that direction, enabling enterprises to use access controls as an important tool for protecting data through their distributed workforces.” Using the Code42-Okta integration, security teams will use user identity to track high-risk users and optimize insider risk management platforms, as well as: • Reduce the risk of insider threats by automating and applying conditional user access controls based on predefined risk tolerance. • To identify behavior risk factors such as remote operation, off-hour file events, and attempts to hide exfiltration, provide additional useful information by provisioning role-based user attributes. • To accelerate investigations and efficiently mitigate insider threats, streamline and simplify response workflows for departing and high-risk employees. About Code42 Code42 is the market leader in Insider Risk Management. The Code42 Incydr solution, which is cloud-native, detects data loss, leaks, and theft quickly and speeds incident response – all without involving extensive implementations, complex policy management, or interfering with employee efficiency. Security experts will use Code42 to secure organizational data and reduce insider risks, all while fostering an open and inclusive atmosphere among employees. Code42's Insider Risk solution is FedRAMP authorized and can be configured for GDPR, HIPAA, PCI, and other regulatory frameworks. It is backed by security best practices and control requirements.
