LOS ANGELES, May 28, 2024 Saviynt, a leading provider of cloud-native identity and governance platform solutions, today announced from its Booth #1606 at Identiverse in Las Vegas that its customers are replacing inadequate legacy systems with its automated, intelligent cloud-native platform, the Identity Cloud. The platform which provides visibility, control, intelligence, and rapid time-to-value protects more than 60 million identities and counting with an increased return on investment (ROI) so organizations can eliminate the cost of legacy and point solutions, manual provisioning and access certification. 

“We were looking to free ourselves from the costs and burden of managing on-premises servers from legacy systems, so we sought out a cloud-native solution like Saviynt,” CISO at Ingredion Kenneth Townsend said in a recent case study. “We also wanted a solution that would be easy to learn and intuitive to manage, and that would enable rapid application onboarding. Robust reporting capabilities and the ability to leverage automation – as well as analytic insights from ML and AI – were also must-haves. We found everything we were looking for in Saviynt’s full-featured Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) platform, the Identity Cloud.”

Saviynt’s Identity Cloud manages all identities through a single pane of glass, allowing organizations to mitigate risk and focus on what matters. Its intuitive user experience, centralized identity warehouse, and advanced analytics increases an organization’s security posture without impacting business operations. 

“The vast majority of organizations that have implemented on-premises, legacy IAM solutions, have done so because of a lack of good alternatives. These organizations were trying to address very complex security requirements, satisfy regulations, and all the most complete IGA and Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions used to be legacy, software based,” said Henrique Teixeira, Senior Vice President of Strategy at Saviynt. “These organizations are dealing today with a massive technical debt challenge, which is many times inevitable with on-premises IAM apps. A Gartner survey says technical debt is one of the top challenges for infrastructure and operations for the past five years. Thankfully, technology has evolved, and organizations finally have a no-compromise alternative with the converged Identity Cloud offered by Saviynt. The Identity Cloud is stronger in terms of capabilities, offering full IGA and PAM features, and it is easier to manage than legacy solutions, because it’s a cloud delivered solution. It’s the best of both worlds.

Legacy systems are falling short as the Identity Cloud improves operational efficiencies by up to 50% and provides the following benefits of an intelligent platform: 

  • Consolidate Core Identity Security Functions: A single solution that combines IGA, PAM, and external and application access governance using the same management console, processes, and design characteristics that simplifies management and enhances the user experience.
  • Manage and Govern All Identities, Applications, and Workloads: With a 360-degree view of the entire identity landscape, organizations can manage all identities across environments whether on-premises, or in multi-cloud, or hybrid architectures. Organizations can also consolidate application GRC capabilities and gain cross-application separation of duty (SoD) management throughout the enterprise. The Identity Cloud unifies administration by bringing together intelligence, reporting, and dashboarding. It enables an organization to understand the overall health of its identity program’s with actionable reporting against key performance indicators including service health, configurations, and compliance. The platform also delivers reports aligned to regulations and frameworks that reduce manual efforts and increase audit success.
  • Speed Deployment and Simplify Management: Instantly connect cloud platforms, enterprise applications, databases and directories, cloud storage, and more to accelerate implementation timelines with pre-built and out-of-the-box integrations via Saviynt Exchange. Its rapid onboarding capabilities, combined with hundreds of integrations developed by Saviynt and its partners, let organizations quickly add applications, significantly reducing the effort required to ingest usage and risk signals from critical enterprise applications. Organizations can Bring-Your-Own (BYO) capabilities for existing workflows, security keys, vaults, forms, and more to leverage previous investments and provide a consistent user experience.
  • Reduce Costs and Technical Debt: Legacy systems are inherently more expensive to implement, manage and keep up to date. Legacy systems require multiple components built over the years by various vendors. This technical debt increases management costs through constant upgrades, patching, and developer costs due to its on-premises architecture and heavy customization needs. Saviynt’s SaaS and configuration-based architecture simplifies daily operations, empowering both administrators and end users through automation and a streamlined user experience. Eliminate unnecessary coding to increase your ROI and reduce total cost of ownership.

“The Identity Cloud is an original built-in-the-cloud identity solution that enables organizations to stay on top of the exploding number of digital identities across on-prem, cloud and multi-cloud application environments,” said Jeff Margolies, Chief Product and Strategy Officer at Saviynt. “Innovation from legacy security providers is lacking. Organizations continue to face the same challenges each year due to complicated visibility and upgrades, as well as disjointed management. Our platform’s superior capabilities, with intelligence and AI at its core, eliminates human error by prioritizing decision-making access to sensitive applications.”

Saviynt was also named a Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for IGA with 91% of customers willing to recommend its platform. It is the only vendor to be recognized as a customer’s choice for three consecutive years in a row. It also received the highest number of customer reviews, the highest overall customer rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars, and the highest number of 5-star reviews when compared to other vendors. 

Identiverse attendees can meet with Saviynt to view a demo of the platform May 28-31 at Booth #1606 inside the Aria Resort in Las Vegas. Or to learn more about why customers are leaving legacy solutions and choosing Saviynt’s Identity Cloud, please visit our blog
