Manage Privileged Machine Identity Access to Reduce Data Breach Risk
Machine identities, such as APIs and RPAs, create cybersecurity risks as malicious actors target these ungoverned silicon-based identities that often have privileged access.
Saviynt’s platform establishes and enforces risk-based access policies over machine identities so organizations can extend governance, secure data, and meet compliance mandates.
KEY PRODUCT FEATURES
How Saviynt's IGA Platform Helps Teams Govern Machine Identities
Saviynt integrates directly with common federation platforms to seamlessly tie into your multi-cloud environment. Accounts are directly linked back to identities and are automatically provisioned and de-provisioned as identities are added, moved, or removed to ensure credentials are not orphaned. When users leave the organization, Saviynt’s platform automatically removes/disables accounts in the federated platform and cloud solutions, ensuring organizations meet regulatory compliance requirements.
Saviynt’s access provisioning is intelligently managed by out-of-the-box and custom policies and controls. Self request provisioning empowers users by automatically granting low-risk access while escalating high-risk requests for additional review by data owners, using peer- and access-based analytics.
Saviynt’s Control Exchange provides out-of-the-box compliance controls for business-critical applications, including HIPAA, PCI, NERC/CIP, COBIT, FFIEC IT Manual, and CIS. Saviynt’s Control Exchange cross-maps between regulatory initiatives, control frameworks, platforms, and control types to integrate with Saviynt’s monitoring and risk remediation. The Control Exchange eases compliance by providing controls that organizations can implement across the multiple platforms Saviynt currently supports.
Saviynt’s depth of visibility with fine-grained entitlements is married with Saviynt’s breadth of visibility across the application ecosystem to allow organizations to define cross-application SoD controls.
Only Saviynt can delve into all of the complexities of application security hierarchies to draw a very precise image of exact access. Leveraging this deep visibility, you can grant the most precise access necessary for a person to execute their job, ensuring you’re adhering to the principle of least privilege across the entire application ecosystem.
Saviynt uses intelligent risk-based analytics to drive a frictionless access request process within the multi-cloud environment. Intelligent analytics compare risk-based criteria to user requests streamlining low-risk access and escalating higher-risk requests to resource owners. Approvers are then able to apply proper scrutiny to requests as they are relieved of the burden of reviewing low risk and common access requests.
Saviynt’s platform leverages its extensive identity entitlement warehouse, using access similarities to standardize role definitions. Employing both bottom-up and top-down role analysis, as well as usage-log analysis, Saviynt provides visibility into access granted but not being used, mitigating excess access risk. The platform also reviews access granted to some, but not all, individuals in a given role, enabling access request suggestions or recommending role re-engineering to reduce friction.
Saviynt’s DAG solution allows the creation of risk-based policies to manage the data access program and automate user requests to data. Assigned data owners perform fine-grained access review to ensure granting entitlements aligns with business needs. Utilize peer and behavioral analytics detect high-risk activity in near real-time, allowing the enterprise to rapidly investigate and respond.
RELATED / GOVERN MACHINE IDENTITIES
Cloud Access Governance, also referred to as cloud identity and access management (Cloud IAM), protects data security and privacy by using automated tools to enforce the principle of least privilege for users within Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud ecosystems. Saviynt helps you create an identity foundation for your holistic security.
Part of our series on converged identity and security, Saviynt focuses on how identity governance extends to encompass new types of identity. Machine, silicon, non-human, RPA, or whatever flavor and term is applied, Saviynt helps secure it.
More organizations are struggling with managing new identities such as (APIs, Bots, Vendor Accounts, etc.). Saviynt’s been thinking about this for a while.
Robotic Process Automation helps organizations to speed up business processes, eliminate human errors and cut costs. However, it needs powerful access to do so, and should be governed. Saviynt discusses this need.
