Automation in the New Normal: The Next Phase of Distributed Work

The rapid shift to remote, distributed workforces forced IT professionals to quickly support new/expanded ways of working. Now, many months later, IT is challenged - and seizing the opportunity - to lay a foundation for the IT stack of the future! One key area of opportunity? Automating time-intensive onboarding and offboarding processes. According to a recent survey of IT leaders, these manual efforts sap budgets and productivity and increase your security gaps. In this session, we'll talk through how identity can help you to mitigate risk in a distributed work environment, help your technology teams be more efficient/effective, and reduce end-user friction.

  • Bridging the Gap between Physical & Digital Identity May 11 2021 1:00 pm UTC 35 mins
    Samy Kamkar, Brooke Lierman, James Segil
    The separation of physical and digital worlds leaves IT systems vulnerable to physical security breaches; today’s world requires a more holistic approach to security. This is true more than ever before, as the surge in remote working in 2020 has teams logging in from home in many locations, while their physical workplaces have less regular attendance that’s now moved to a scheduled rotation for teams to comply with social distancing density requirements. In their global deployment, Intercom uses Okta and Openpath to bridge the gap between physical and digital security, providing a frictionless and secure user experience regardless of where users are. Leveraging the open API architecture Openpath provides, Intercom was able to combine access control with their security suite including Openpath’s native integration with Okta to automatically sync users across the system making it quick and easy to issue or revoke credentials for both an improved security posture and an increased ROI. Giving customers the ability to synchronize users in real-time not only results in fewer vulnerabilities for physical access to locations, but also helps make sure that as new employees onboard in the company, they have quicker and more immediate access to the physical buildings they work in.

  • A New Approach to Automation and Identity Management Recorded: Apr 13 2021 36 mins
    George Kwon, Senior Director of Product Management, Okta & Mohan Ramaswamy, Senior Manager, Digital Services Group, T-Mobile
    Automation has always been a core part of a mature IAM program. It is an incredibly powerful tool that can deliver great end user experiences, secure access and even manage compliance risk. However, over the years, hand crafted and brittle integrations and failed deployments have given automation a bad rap and analysts have even steered customers away from prioritising automation. The Okta Workflows platform changes the game by delivering low code automation to the Identity industry. For the first time, Identity teams can get all the benefits of automation, without all the downsides. In this session, we’ll walk through the role of automation in Identity Management past and present, and how Okta Workflows can transform your teams in some unexpected ways.

    OAuth is one of the most important but most misunderstood frameworks out there. What you think it is, it probably isn’t. What it actually is, you probably hadn’t considered.
