Oktane15: Staying on Top of Cloud Solutions…and Threats


Excitement is growing as Okta’s Oktane15 quickly approaches.

With keynote speakers such as Todd McKinnon (Okta CEO), Walter Isaacson (Aspen President), Bill Nye (Scientist, Engineer, & Inventor) and Frederic Kerrest (Okta Chief Operating Officer), this is one event you will not want to miss.

As a silver sponsor, Imperva is looking forward to connecting with hundreds of organizations as well as thousands of “IT leaders, leading cloud ISVs, industry analysts and influencers” all of whom have the same question:

“How do I maximize cloud security without negatively impacting productivity?”

With that question firmly in mind, let’s take a look at why this particular event is such a big deal for anyone who cares about staying on top of cloud solutions…as well as cloud threats.

Why are we sponsoring Oktane15?

To begin, Imperva is more than just an Oktane15 sponsor.

In July of this year we became an official Okta partner.

Why? Because as data loss and cyber-attacks in the cloud become more commonplace, integrated security becomes more essential. Okta’s Identity as a Service (IDaaS) solution provides a major piece of the security puzzle. Our partnership, however, is about completing that picture by augmenting identity management with a full scale cloud access security broker (CASB) such as Imperva Skyfence.

Together “Okta and Imperva Skyfence provide comprehensive security for user access to cloud applications and data – from authentication and monitoring to cyber-threat detection and data leak prevention. Certified interoperability of the solutions helps ease deployment and ensure a seamless end-user experience.”

The primary reason we’re sponsoring Oktane15 is to help educate the cloud community about the new security challenges associated with cloud app adoption and how our certified interoperability helps ease deployment as well as ensure a seamless end-user experience.

What to expect at Oktane15

The mobility theme of this year’s event is a critical subject for any company that uses cloud applications — whether those apps are sanctioned or unsanctioned by IT (Shadow IT).

It’s especially relevant for business who want to get cloud-literate and stay ahead of the curve.

The trend toward mobile puts many businesses at risk. This risk is exactly why Obama officially declared October to be national Cyber Security Awareness month.

The goal of Oktane15 is to explore exactly how you and your business can maximize cloud and mobile solutions (i.e., productivity), while minimizing and eliminating threats.

That’s where Imperva Skyfence comes in …

Why should you stop by the Imperva booth?

Simply put, to see Imperva Skyfence in action. We’ll be showing attendees how to restrict uploads and downloads of sensitive or regulated data, and how to discover risk in existing unstructured data in the cloud—as well as how to enforce BYOD access rules, prevent account takeovers, and identify rogue users for Office 365, Box, Salesforce, Google Apps and other cloud apps. We’ll also share our latest research on Man in the Cloud (MITC) attacks and strategies for mitigation.

On top of that, we’ll also be giving away “What happens in the cloud, stays in the cloud” t-shirts (we’ll be in Vegas after all) and have a drawing for a chance to win a new Apple Watch Sport!

So come by and meet our product experts, see a demo of Imperva Skyfence, and learn how the interoperability of Okta and Skyfence make protecting your organization’s data in the cloud even easier.
