Today’s CISO, and security and risk professionals are tasked with providing guidance and prioritization to the teams who must maintain and manage all of the security tools and processes within the organization in order to ensure the business operates securely and according to compliance mandates.
The perennial challenge for security professionals continues to be striking a reasonable balance between enforcing appropriate security and policy controls without slowing down business processes. And, in today’s era of massive digital transformation, the balance between helping an organization adapt to security and compliance requirements – such as GDPR, SOX, PCI – without inhibiting employees and contractors from accessing the systems and tools they need to work faster in today’s highly competitive business landscape is getting complicated to say the least.
Today, we often hear CISOs say, identity is the center of their IT universe given the disparate complications of managing dispersed identities, applications, infrastructure, and data. A solution to this challenging journey is to implement a strong identity and access management (IAM) strategy. Identity is the core to ensure the overall security posture of any organization – no matter the size or industry. To protect an organization, and its customers, from sophisticated cybercriminals, while also meeting current compliance mandates without infringing on internal business processes, requires a focused IAM strategy that can help CISOs effectively prioritize where it matters most.
At Saviynt, we believe clarity and vision helps our customers identify and govern the access planes within their IT environments with greater confidence. Our aim is to help customers make informed, risk-based decisions that solve the challenge of balancing security and policy enforcement with an organization’s need to thrive economically in today’s fiercely competitive marketplace.
