Even with the best defenses in place, all organizations are at risk of cyber threats. In 2020, 60 percent of cyber insurance claims reported to Coalition were caused by human error and targeted businesses of all sizes. The majority of these claims could potentially have been prevented by using additional factors of authentication.

“Cyber crime is rapidly evolving, and organizations need to adopt a holistic risk management strategy to combat growing threats from malware, socially engineered attacks, and security breaches,” said Matt Dort, Head of Technology Alliances for Coalition. “Coalition serves a broad range of customers. We required a solution that could serve the basic needs of small businesses to the complex demands of large public companies. Okta meets these needs and more.”

“Today, layered protection against threats is critical – and not just when it comes to your technology stack,” said Maureen Little, Vice President of Technology Partners for Okta. “Our partnership with Coalition ensures total peace of mind by pairing our identity solutions with best-in-class cyber insurance.”
