The AlienApp™ for Okta enables you to monitor user activities and detect threats against your Okta account directly from USM Anywhere. It provides deep security monitoring for your users’ single sign-on (SSO) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) Okta activities, helping you to safeguard user credentials through early threat detection and rapid response.

Delivered out of the box in USM Anywhere, the AlienApp for Okta extends your security capabilities without the usual complexities of integrating multiple IT and security tools. Starting on Day One, USM Anywhere can help you to detect user credential theft, abuse, policy violations, and other threats to your Okta account, by alerting you to—

  • Suspicious or anomalous changes to Okta user accounts, profiles, and permissions
  • Authentication activities from a known malicious host
  • Attempts to bypass multi-factor authentication policies
  • Repeated login failures and possible brute force attacks
  • Escalations in administrative privileges and other admin-level changes

How It Works:

  1. USM Anywhere collects and analyzes data through the Okta API, including authentication events, user profile updates, and changes to your Okta account. Our unique Okta plugin parses the API data and generates events in USM Anywhere.

  2. If USM Anywhere detects an anomalous or suspicious event, such as user sign-on from a known malicious host, it raises an alarm, letting you know what to investigate.

  3. USM Anywhere has a pre-built, interactive dashboard for Okta that summarizes authentication events and failures, so you can quickly identify anomalies and drill down to investigate—all within USM Anywhere.

Why You’ll Love the AlienApp for Okta

Secure Identity & Access Management

Okta users know the value of a secure identity and access management (IAM) program. The AlienApp for Okta boosts your IAM program by providing advanced threat detection for your Okta activities directly in USM Anywhere. To ensure you always detect the latest threats, USM Anywhere receives continuous threat intelligence updates from the AlienVault Labs Security Research Team.

Accelerate Time to Detection

By collecting and analyzing your Okta API events against the latest AlienVault threat intelligence, USM Anywhere helps you to detect threats and intrusions earlier, so that you can take swift action to prevent or stop a breach in its tracks. Because Okta connects to thousands of applications and services, a malicious actor with stolen credentials could cause serious harm to your organization. Thus, it’s crucial to detect threats against Okta early and efficiently.

Save Time & Money

The AlienApp for Okta is available in USM Anywhere at zero additional cost, with zero integration headaches. It’s the fastest and most affordable way to layer on threat detection to your Okta account and broader IAM program without introducing another point security solution to your environment.
