Los Angeles, CA – ( February 28, 2017) – Saviynt, the leading provider of Identity Governance and Cloud Security solutions, today announced that the company was named a Challenger by Gartner, Inc. in the February 2017 Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration report by analysts Felix Gaehtgens, Perry Carpenter,  Brian Iverson and Kevin Kampman.

“We feel moving from the Niche Players up to the Challenger quadrant is a validation of our vision and mission to enable customers to secure their applications, data, and infrastructure in an integrated platform,” says Sachin Nayyar, Founder and CEO of Saviynt. He continued, “We believe this recognition validates our unique ability to deliver a complete solution both in the cloud and on-premise.  What we’re hearing in the market is that Saviynt is the most fully featured IGA Solution delivered as a service.”

With a growing list of Fortune 500 companies, Saviynt has become the next generation solution and a vetted alternative to the incumbent players in the space.  Saviynt is built on three core tenets: Identity is the new perimeter, Governance is the new imperative and Intelligence is the new prevention.  Sachin concluded, “We believe Saviynt’s new positioning is due to our ability to offer an intelligent and risk-aware Identity Governance Solution combining Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Application GRC and Data Access Governance (DAG) capabilities in a single platform. The power of bringing these components together is game changing.”

The solution delivers the most comprehensive, modular, and integrated IGA platform that helps organizations protect their critical assets, protect against cyber and security threats, meet compliance mandates, and embrace new technologies with confidence. It offers an intelligent and intuitive user experience tailored for different personas in the organization, leverages analytics to increase the efficiency of IGA processes and provides tools for effective decision making.
