On March 9th, Idaptive is launching Intelligent MFA for Cortex, Palo Alto Network’s open and integrated AI-based continuous security platform. With Idaptive’s Next-Gen Access Cloud, organizations can leverage data from Cortex Data Lake and intelligently analyze event data to make risk-level decisions at the user level. Users who have elevated risk profiles can then be prompted to provide a second factor of authentication based on real-time events.

Our Intelligent MFA dynamically works with Cortex by: 

  • Aggregating threat intelligence feeds from multiple data sources within Palo Alto Networks and Idaptive’s ecosystems;
  • Generating insights from imported threat intelligence feeds;
  • Integrating with Idaptive’s behavior analysis system to make real-time decisions on security alerts and events.

The data provided by Palo Alto Networks is critical to expanding Idaptive’s intelligent next-gen access platform, ultimately leading to more robust security for applications and endpoints across customers’ networks,” said Archit Lohokare, Chief Product Officer at Idaptive. “We’re excited to be a part of Cortex and bring our Zero Trust approach to Palo Alto Networks’ customers. We believe this collaboration is an enormous step to strengthening our machine learning capabilities, adding diverse sources for greater contextual and behavioral understanding.”

Built on Cortex, organizations can ensure that Idaptive’s Next-Gen Access platform will work seamlessly with their existing Palo Alto Networks products and is easily configurable. For Idaptive Application Service customers, administrators can request to turn on our Analytics Service to begin the process. For organizations that are considering how to optimize their security posture and investment in Palo Alto Networks with complementary identity services, you can start a trial here.

With this app, Idaptive has created three ways for Palo Alto Networks customers to leverage our Next-Gen Access Cloud.

  1. Single Sign-On (SSO) for Next-Gen Firewall
  2. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for VPN
  3. Intelligent Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for Cortex™

Idaptive is committed to developing a dynamic and responsive ecosystem for our customers by integrating with best-in-breed platforms and applications. Our app for Cortex is a demonstration of this commitment, and we are excited about what Cortex by Palo Alto Networks has to offer for securing the future.
