IGA on Your Okta Tenant – Advantage YouAttest

Okta is an amazing IAM/CIAM/2FA product – the gartner leader, and the customer favorite.  It changed the world around identity by supplying the first fully-functional IAAS system.   But no product is an island – and the same is true for Okta and IGA – that’s why this blog is about IGA on Your Okta Tenant – Advantage YouAttest.

YouAttest Provides key advantages of its SSO integrated (And OIN verified) integration into your Okta tenant.   Integration is in minutes using SAML or OIDC.  Once integrated your tenant in the YouAttest cloud interacts securely with your tenant in the Okta cloud and provides the additional IGA functionality unavailable in your Okta tenant alone.

YouAttest IGA features for an Okta deployment include:

1.   Audit Ready Attestation Campaigns

YouAttest has a pre-created GUI to walk through users on Attestation Campaigns.   Most customers default to some form of XLS spreadsheet usage to have the audit-mandated non-admin personnel conduct the identity audits for SOX, SOC, HIPAA/HITRUST, PCI-DSS and CMMC guidance.

YouAttest automatically enables the audit team to mandate single reviewers, multiple reviewers and even groups of reviewers.

YouAttest enables the auditing team to enable auto-delegation to automatically delegate to the appropriate managers.

9.   Pre-Built Attestations on Key Security/Group Changes

Okta is an amazing tool that enables alerts and attestations all sorts of security modifications including group and resource allocations.   YouAttest is the plug-in that INSURES that these changes are reviewed.   That’s proper governance.

10. Instant Report of Reviewer Actions

YouAttest provides an outline of who took what action in reviewing access, what that action was, when it took place, and upon which individual. Reports are populated as soon as an action is made, meaning if a manager presses certify and a report is downloaded, it will reflect this decision and  who made it. Reports can be downloaded as a PDF, CSV, Excel, or printed off and serve as a paper trail for any auditor questioning when access reviews took place and by whom.

YouAttest provides the access review functionality, integrated into your Okta tenant that enables enterprises to save 100 of hours and create more compliant and secure environments.
