Enabling a high level of remote workforce productivity is key for business today.

In order to expand the cybersecurity services available to our customers, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Preempt Security.

BeyondID offers consulting, implementation and managed services for identity management, cybersecurity and cloud platforms, including Preempt integrations. Together, these partners can guide business to a more unified and strong cybersecurity posture by increasing ROI from Okta investments with Preempt’s Security Visibility and Control. Here’s how:

1. Get Holistic Security Visibility: On-Premises and Cloud
Get a holistic understanding of the security gaps in authentication policies, user roles, access privileges, human and service accounts, access deviations, and so on, across on-premise and cloud environments. The Preempt and Okta synergy will help you unify and extend security visibility, removing siloed visibility overhead.

2. Reinforce your Okta SSO Policies
With Preempt’s truly real-time threat detection, tweak your Okta SSO policies for users and groups. Without the need for log analysis, Preempt detects lateral movement and access violations in real-time and helps you stop Kerberoasting, Golden Tickets and Pass the Hash (PtH) attacks.

3. Increase User Acceptance of Your Okta MFA Strategy
Preempt continuously assesses risks based on user behavior that is tied to entities such as endpoints, servers, applications, location, user roles, and many more. You can trigger Okta MFA (Okta Verify Push/OTP/Phone Call) or block access to resources or applications, only when the risk increases, improving user experience and wider adoption of your Okta MFA implementation.

4. Extend Okta MFA to Any Application
Trigger Okta MFA for any application in your enterprise, on-premise or cloud, including legacy and proprietary applications. Without the need for additional agents on user endpoints, extend MFA and enforce risk-based Conditional Access even on proprietary servers and devices.
