Los Angeles, CA – (Dec 22, 2017) – Saviynt, a leading provider of Identity Governance and Cloud Security solutions today announced that it is one of 11 vendors included in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers.1

In the report, Gartner predicted that, “By 2020, 60% of large enterprises will use a CASB to govern cloud services, up from less than 10% today. Through 2020, at least 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault,” 1 according to Steve Riley, Research Director and Craig Lawson, Research VP at Gartner.

“Saviynt is unique in that we look at Identity Governance and Administration holistically to solve security challenges of sanctioned critical cloud applications,” says Amit Saha, Chief Operating Officer at Saviynt. “We purpose-built Saviynt to address the varying security, compliance and governance requirements of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS cloud providers. With the recent addition of cloud privilege access management to our existing offerings, organizations can leverage Saviynt’s identity-centric CASB solution to adopt a single security and governance pane across its hybrid IT.”

Some of the popular scenarios beyond shadow IT discovery, where organizations are successfully leveraging Saviynt include:

  1. Gaining visibility into sensitive data or vulnerable workloads with Saviynt’s advanced access analytics
  2. Enforcing real-time protection of critical data and devOps assets across most popular cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, Chef, Google Drive, Box and Office 365
  3. Performing access governance, data ownership management and enforce segregation of duties (SOD) for providers such as Workday, Salesforce, Oracle Cloud ERP and SAP Cloud applications
  4. Managing privilege access with just in time administration and audit log collation across various cloud providers as well as instances / VMs

“In addition, we believe that the inclusion of Saviynt in a range of 2017 Gartner reports including being listed as a Challenger in the Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration, being recognized in the Critical Capabilities for Identity Governance and Administration, being mentioned in the Market Guide for IAM Professional Services, North America, being listed as a Representative Vendor in the Market Guide for SOD Controls Monitoring Tools, and now being named a Niche Player in the Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers 1, is a testament to the depth of the Saviynt Identity Management solution,” said Yash Prakash (Saviynt). “We believe that our core ability is to converge IGA, PAM, Application GRC, CASB and DAG components into a single platform is a key differentiator, and critical to a cloud first or hybrid based security strategy,” continued Mr. Prakash. “Saviynt is leading the way in the evolution of IGA 2.0, including identity-centric CASB. Ensuring that companies know who has access to what, and being able to remediate violations across multiple applications, or be alerted when risks appear is how Saviynt is making sure that either cloud security failures or on-premise security failures are mitigated,” he concluded.
