Okta and Skyhigh Networks Deliver Unified Solution to Secure User, Device and Data Across the Entire Adoption Lifecycle

Gold Sponsor of Oktane 2015 Skyhigh to Present with Mike Bartholomy of Western Union on Seamless Approach to Protecting Cloud Data

Las Vegas, NV – November 2 – Skyhigh Networks, the Cloud Security and Enablement Company, will be showcasing an integration with Okta to deliver a unified solution to secure users, devices and data across the entire adoption lifecycle.

Skyhigh was recently granted a patent for a key component of Skyhigh Pervasive Cloud Control, a capability that intermediates cloud traffic based on user identity established by an Identity Provider like Okta. Skyhigh Pervasive Cloud Control enables frictionless (no device agents and no impact to cloud service providers) and ubiquitous (no way to get around it) visibility and policy enforcement. The solution was developed to work from any device, across the entire organization (employees, customers and partners), both on and off network.

“Okta and Skyhigh drive employee productivity and agility while meeting stringent security and compliance requirements,” said Mike Bartholomy, senior manager of information security at Western Union. “We’re seeing both costs and risk go down as a result of the integration because employees no longer have to call the help desk in order to request access to a cloud service – the approval process and onboarding is completely automated.”

Skyhigh will demonstrate the unified solution at Oktane 2015 in Las Vegas, November 2-4, 2015, where Skyhigh is a Gold Sponsor. The integrated solution combines identity management, mobility management and cloud access security brokerage (CASB) to deliver a comprehensive security, compliance and governance solution for all cloud services.

Speakers: Harold Byun, Skyhigh Networks and Mike Bartholomy, Western Union

Date/Time: Tuesday, November 3, 3:45pm – 4:30pm
Session Description: Insider threats, compromised accounts, inadvertent exposure, data exfiltration and compliance violations are risks that every enterprise is concerned about. And, with cloud and mobile increasingly moving data outside the secured perimeter, enterprises are adopting new strategies to enforce pervasive security controls to protect data wherever it lives.
Western Union has been at the forefront of enabling cloud services securely for their employees. In this session, learn how Western Union’s security team is leveraging Okta and Skyhigh Cloud Access Security Broker to create a centralized control point that enables them to protect their data across all cloud services. Presenters will share best practices for discovering all cloud services in use, standardizing on sanctioned services, detecting behavioral patterns indicative of insider threat or a compromised account, achieving compliance with internal policies and industry regulations and protecting data from unauthorized access.
