Course Overview

Learn how to use Okta to create a Zero Trust environment in a landscape where people are the new perimeter. This hands-on course is full of tips for expanding your security footprint with Okta.

You successfully use Okta today to securely manage identity and application and system access. Yet the distributed nature of today’s workforce combined with the sheer volume of in-cloud and on-premise IT resources requires a modern, identity-centric approach to securing your organization’s assets and protecting the perimeter.

Using Okta’s Policy Framework, you will gain experience configuring zone-based multi-factor enrollment (MFA) policies to govern user and application access as well as learn how to protect sensitive data and manage privileged access in your server architecture using Okta Advanced Server Access. This class explores Okta ThreatInsight’s ability to identify people and device access patterns associated with threat actors or malicious traffic. This data is leveraged by Okta’s contextual response framework providing you with the opportunity to implement passwordless authentication policies. Finally, automations and System Log queries will not only strengthen your security posture but also bring you a step closer to supporting some of the most rigorous compliance standards.
