Author: Vibhuti Sinha

Date: 11/26/2023


In today’s digital landscape, the importance of robust Identity & Access Management (IAM) cannot be overstated, especially when it comes to cloud security. At Saviynt we are pleased to announce our extended integration with AWS IAM Access Analyzer which marks a significant step forward in this endeavor, offering unparalleled security and compliance capabilities.

The Role of AWS in Enhancing Cloud Security

AWS’s robust infrastructure is a cornerstone of cloud security. The IAM Access Analyzer is instrumental in managing access to AWS resources efficiently and securely. By identifying specific unused permissions and unused access, you can improve the security of your AWS environments on your journey to least privilege model.

Zero-trust security is not just a concept but a necessity in today’s security landscape. It operates on the principle of “never trust, always verify.” Through our collaboration with AWS, we at Saviynt embody this principle by continuously verifying identities and access rights, ensuring only legitimate access to your resources.

“Saviynt has deep and rich integrations with the AWS IAM framework and we have taken this several notches up with the IAM Access Analyzer integration. Saviynt’s converged cloud identity platform through this integration helps reduce access sprawl that our customers can immediately start to benefit from” Says – Vibhuti Sinha, Chief Product Officer, Saviynt”
