SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — point of proof, Inc., a leading cybersecurity and compliance company, today announced a product integration between its CASB solution and Okta, providing customers with the ability to detect and remediate suspicious logins for the most 7,000 cloud applications federated through Okta Identity Cloud. With this announcement, Proofpoint CASB now supports suspicious login detection and remediation in cloud applications federated by three popular identity providers: Microsoft Active Directory, Okta, and Google, covering the majority of enterprise applications today. In November 2021, Gartner® recognized Okta as a leader in the Magic Quadrant™ for access management with the greatest “ability to execute” of any vendor evaluated.1

Fueled in part by the ongoing pandemic, the takeover of cloud accounts is in full swing, costing businesses millions in resources and lost revenue. According Ponemon Institute research, businesses lose an average of $6.2 million per year to compromised cloud accounts, or about 3.5% of their total revenue. Respondents also reported an average of 64 cloud account compromises per year, 30% of which exposed sensitive data. And things seem to be getting worse, with 50% of respondents saying the volume or frequency of cloud account compromises has increased over the past 12 months.

“Proofpoint is proud to have the first CASB that protects users against account takeovers in Microsoft, Google, and now Okta-federated cloud applications,” said Tim Choi, vice president of product marketing at Proofpoint. “Because our cloud security solutions integrate out of the box, they dramatically accelerate our customers’ cloud security journey by enabling their teams to automatically remediate account takeovers instead of wasting valuable resources. in manual response efforts. With Proofpoint and Okta, organizations can reduce the risk of their users being compromised and react faster when something goes wrong, so security teams can stay one step ahead of the next attack.

“As the leading independent and neutral identity solution, Okta’s vision is to enable everyone to use any technology securely,” said Maureen Little, Vice President, Technology Partnerships at Okta. “Adding Proofpoint CASB to Okta’s Integration Network helps move more organizations toward this vision, enabling joint customers to protect their end users against sophisticated account takeover attempts when they connect to more than 7,000 cloud applications federated by Okta. We look forward to working with Proofpoint to keep more organizations secure as they adopt the best technology for their business. »
