Thanks to the rise of cloud computing, outsourcing and increasingly mobile workforces, the network perimeter no longer serves as the sole, viable cornerstone of an organization's cybersecurity. Instead, identity has become one of the leading mechanisms for ensuring that organizations allow only the right people to connect to the right technologies at the right time, says Okta's Clare Cunniffe.
