Threat intelligence firm Recorded Future Inc. today announced a new integration with Okta Inc. to deepen coverage provided by its Identity Intelligence solution.

Under the arrangement, the Recorded Future Intelligence Cloud will provide integration through the Okta Integration Network for automated visibility into compromised identities, real-time evidence of exposed credentials, and immediate prioritization of identity threats and downstream response workflows.

Recorded Future claims that while multifactor authentication solutions make accessing business-critical infrastructure and customer-facing applications more secure, they’re limited in ensuring identities haven’t been compromised. The integration with Okta’s access management platform goes beyond MFA to assist in identifying and remediating identity compromises before they’re weaponized against an organization.

For Okta customers, Recorded Future Identity Intelligence is now available as a Workflows Connector, a no-code approach to automating identity processes at scale.

Recorded Future Identity Intelligence produces real-time intelligence from a range of open-source, dark web and technical sources to offer a source of truth for identity authenticity for Okta users. With the integration, users can accelerate incident response from hours to minutes when passwords are exposed.

Other benefits of the integration include the ability for users to save time and scale resources by reallocating analysts’ time previously spent on manual tasks. The service includes monitoring National Institute of Standards and Technology password best practices by leveraging automated password audits, while also improving end-user experiences with confident, intelligence-driven access management.

“MFA remains one of the most common methods organizations use to prevent identity-related risks, but it is no longer enough,” Craig Adams, chief product and engineering officer at Recorded Future, said in a statement. “Identity access and security teams now require a force multiplier of leading access management and intelligence solutions.”

Adams added that the integration allows clients to correlate independent intelligence with internal telemetry to achieve the visibility necessary to assess and respond to threats.

Recorded Future is owned by Insight Partners, which acquired the company for $780 million in 2019.
