Spera Security to join forces with Okta

Cybersecurity vendor Okta this week signed a definitive agreement to acquire Spera Security, an identity security platform, a move it said will broaden its identity threat detection and security posture management capabilities.

According to Okta, ”Spera will equip customers with richer insights and technology to elevate their identity security posture management, and quickly identify, detect, and remediate risks.

“It will also allow our customers to uncover threats and misconfigurations not only within their IdP, but also directly within other SaaS and infrastructure applications (i.e. AWS, Salesforce, GCP, GitHub). This will enhance customers’ ability to identify and break down identity silos across the tech stack, such as partially offboarded users or non MFA admins.”

The company went on to say, “the acquisition continues our investment in secure identity product offerings and furthers our vision to free everyone to safely use any technology.”
