Palerra Integrates Its User Behavior Analytics With Okta's Identity Management Service to Uncover Malicious Usage Patterns, Provide Identity Insight and Control Granular User Access
SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2015) - Palerra, the leader in cloud security automation, today announced new User Behavior Analytics (UBA) capabilities for its award-winning LORIC™ platform including user profiling, user risk-scoring and anomaly detection. Palerra also announced a new integration with Okta, the leading identity and mobility management company. Leveraging LORIC's User Risk Scoring, Okta and Palerra customers gain greater visibility and granular access control across their entire cloud service environment.
LORIC UBA offers visibility on user risks as well as drill down capabilities for deep forensic analysis. Included in Palerra's new UBA capability are dynamic user risk scores that leverage LORIC's machine learning capabilities to continually assess and quantify user anomalies based on a range of attributes including access patterns, administrative actions, device characteristics and more. LORIC's integrated workflows allow security administrators to quickly respond to incidents by opening tickets, or placing surveillance on risky users, across all cloud apps, at the click of a mouse.
By combining Palerra's UBA capability with Okta's Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS), enterprises gain new insight into anomalies deep in their app usage activities, such as rarely detected administrative actions and access device characteristics.
The integration provides critical capabilities for enterprises to secure their cloud applications including:
"Okta's vision centers on strengthening security for the cloud and mobile world through our industry leading Identity-as-a-Service," said Chuck Fontana, VP of corporate and business development at Okta. "Palerra's cutting-edge User Behavior Analytics capabilities extend our vision, by natively leveraging our modern API platform to provide our customers with continuous monitoring and granular risk assessments on their users that access Cloud and SaaS services."
"With the continued increase in adoption of Cloud and SaaS services, Behavioral Analytics is the next frontier in Cloud Security," said Adina Simu, head of product management at Palerra. "Palerra's UBA gives customers the richest set of user insights, including early warnings on insider threats and credential breaches, while ensuring no compromise to end-user experience, application performance and latency."
Palerra's UBA capability further enhances LORIC's ability to provide visibility, governance, and automation across the entire enterprise cloud service environment including AWS, Salesforce, Box, Microsoft® Office 365™ and ServiceNow, through a single pane of glass.
