LOS ANGELES – Saviynt, a leading provider of intelligent identity and access governance solutions, today announced that it is partnering with Kraft Heinz Company (Nasdaq: KHC), one of the largest food and beverage companies in the world, to advance its identity and access governance by leveraging Saviynt’s Enterprise Identity Cloud.
“Identity is increasingly becoming a must-have cornerstone for enterprises building a successful business and cloud transformation program,” said Amit Saha, CEO, Saviynt. “Saviynt is partnering closely with our customers to deliver an identity-based intelligent security and compliance perimeter for critical assets such as SAP, AWS, and Azure.”
Future-Facing Enterprise Identity at the Speed of Business
Kraft Heinz Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Ricardo Lafosse and his dedicated identity & access management team led the strategic initiative to overhaul the Company’s existing security posture and deliver better cyber controls through identity governance. The effort, aimed at reinforcing Kraft Heinz’s expansive IT infrastructure, will mitigate identity risk often introduced into the organization through cloud and on-premise applications.
The team leveraged Saviynt’s Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) solution to lay the foundation for Kraft Heinz’s new identity and security strategy. Kraft Heinz also used Saviynt’s Application Access Governance (AAG) solution to implement consistent, compliant Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) processes throughout its entire hybrid application environment.
“With over 70,000 internal and external identities, we needed a sophisticated solution that offered a centralized, enterprise-wide identity governance framework,” said Ricardo Lafosse, CISO, Kraft Heinz Company. “Together with Saviynt, we’ve created a dynamic approach that allows us to visualize, manage, and seamlessly administer identity governance. Embracing our Kraft Heinz value, We dare to do better every day, we’re tackling security head-on and automating compliance processes at the speed of business, without compromising end-user experience.”
Zero Trust in Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Environments
With Saviynt’s IGA solution, Kraft Heinz has reaped the benefits of a cloud-architected solution that can control access, protect critical assets, and minimize overall risk. Through these efforts, the company strengthened its identity management capabilities within a diverse hybrid computing environment for over 70,000 users across 45 applications and 100 connected systems.
Kraft Heinz has surpassed the typical identity management challenges faced within a hybrid IT environment. For example, employees benefit from a seamless onboarding experience without delays or productivity issues. Saviynt’s break-glass approach ensures that Kraft Heinz employees have seamless access to applications and infrastructure necessary to their role, without compromising compliance. The break-glass procedures are now available in the Kraft Heinz environment through on-demand, privileged access.
Continuous Compliance with Simplified Risk Analysis
Saviynt’s AAG solution has provided Kraft Heinz with a granular view of application risk that helps maintain audit readiness with continuous compliance across enterprise SaaS and on-premise applications.
