Reduce risk and improve organisational control with integrated cloud platforms
From sharing proprietary information to sending financial details, email is how critical business gets done. Employees depend on email almost exclusively to interact and collaborate with colleagues, suppliers and customers. By using email to conduct phishing, business email compromise (BEC) attacks, brand impersonation and more, attackers leverage an organization’s weakest security link — its people — to wreak havoc.
Mimecast and Okta provide an integrated solution to improve detection, stop threats and increase organizational controls. By integrating Mimecast with Okta, security teams can leverage advanced tools for applying fine-grained adaptive security measures for containing and remediating attack campaigns. The integration offers a comprehensive solution to help secure access to cloud applications like Office365, G Suite, and the entire IT environment. Mimecast identifies at-risk users through zero day attacks and phishing links targeted towards customers and supply chain partners coupled with Data Leak Prevention (DLP) incidents. The Okta Identity Cloud protects users and their access to resources through centralized access policies across cloud and on-prem apps and services, with Single Sign-On (SSO) and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) as critical security controls.
2. Sensitive data leaked via email is identified by Mimecast.
3. All malicious content and data leakage events are controlled by Mimecast based on the organization's risk posture and security policies.
4. Associated user information relating to the events is shared with Okta and moved into unique groups based on the risk.
5. Okta performs actions based on the associated policy for the group which range from enforcing password resets, applying selective MFA or account lockout.
