We are honored to accept the Okta Workforce Identity Cloud Technology Partner of the Year award, which is a true testament to our joint efforts in elevating security posture, driving operational efficiencies and improving user access experience for customers across the globe.”

This year has been one of growth for CrowdStrike and Okta’s strategic partnership.

Where: Breakout Theater A (in the Networking Lounge on Level 2)

Description: John Smith, Integration Solution Architect at CrowdStrike, will discuss the core of a Zero Trust architecture, including the importance of user and device connectivity and context and how CrowdStrike and Okta together unify powerful insights into user and device context to eliminate security blindspots. Armed with this single view, teams can easily manage enterprise access policies that protect all corporate resources, both in the cloud and on premises, and sync data to reporting and monitoring tools for further analysis and correlation when needed. With a comprehensive view into user and device security, teams can deliver a frictionless user experience by authorizing fast, context-aware access to enterprise resources without compromising on security or compliance. 

Setting the Standard for XDR — Together

As a part of the CrowdXDR Alliancea unified and open extended detection and response (XDR) coalition formed by CrowdStrike with best-of-breed solution providers — Okta integrates with CrowdStrike to share relevant Okta logs for improved visibility with telemetry from the user and device. This sharing of intelligence maximizes cross-platform effectiveness to supply deep real-time visibility into host security posture and user login context so that teams can make informed and reliable access decisions. 

XDR is the next frontier for stopping today’s sophisticated threats. It’s a holistic approach that streamlines security data ingestion, analysis and workflows across an organization’s entire security stack. Learn more about XDR and how to choose a solution that best meets your organization’s needs.

When it comes to kickstarting the move to XDR, CrowdStrike focuses on helping customers take advantage of their existing security stack. XDR enables them to keep their current tools and extend value through the deep integrations provided by the CrowdXDR Alliance.

Easing the Zero Trust Journey for Joint Customers

CrowdStrike and Okta help customers deliver a top-notch end user experience by authorizing fast, context-aware, risk-based access to enterprise resources without compromising on security or compliance mandates. The integration of Okta Verify with the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform makes it easy for teams to evaluate incoming user and device data against centralized access policies, so they can block suspect users, require step-up authentication, or deny access from devices that don’t match an organization’s security posture requirements.

Zero Trust is a security framework requiring all users, whether in or outside the organization’s network, to be authenticated, authorized and continuously validated for security configuration and posture before being granted or keeping access to applications and data. Learn more.

CrowdStrike and Okta help customers advance in their Zero Trust journey, highlighting the importance of multiple layers of security to deter adversaries and keep up with the constantly evolving threat landscape. Together, CrowdStrike and Okta are empowering customers to take advantage of the partnership’s deep integrations and customize them according to the needs of their organizations.
