Identity as a Game-Changing Breach DefenseOkta's Teju Shyamsundar on Re-Thinking Traditional IAM
Often in breach response, security professionals focus on the technical aspects of the attack. Yet, the non-technical aspects are often more insidious, says Teju Shyamsundar of Okta. And Identity can be a powerful tool to bolster defenses.
"I think identity is still really an untapped market, and there's lots of potential there across multiple areas," says Shyamsundar, senior product marketing manager with Okta.
In an interview about identity and breach defense, Shyamsundar discusses:
- Recent breach trends of concern;
- How we are approaching IAM wrong;
- Five steps for protection using modern identity.
Shyamsundar is a Senior Product Marketing Manager at Okta, leading adaptive authentication products. Prior to Okta, she worked at Microsoft and implemented enterprise mobility technologies across a large set of enterprise customers in various industries. She now works on driving the value of Okta's adaptive MFA and adaptive SSO capabilities across customers and partners.
