The common element in all these data breaches is access control. As one security expert noted from the MyFitnessPal breach, “trust but verify” isn’t enough when data is stored in the cloud and accessed from locations outside a company’s secured internal network.

With the release of tighter integrations with Okta and Azure AD (or any SCIM-based directory service for that matter), you now have the ability to manage just-in-time, least-privilege access to your critical infrastructure right from your preferred identity provider (IdP), dramatically reducing the time needed to approve requests and grant access.
The way companies look at infrastructure access is changing.
