Cloud Secure: Own Your Responsibility Across the Multi-Cloud Ecosystem
Cloud-First or Cloud Only strategies offer flexibility and speed, but organizations struggle to navigate the differences between securing identity and access on-premises and in the cloud as they attempt to comply with Shared Responsibility agreements.
Saviynt’s cloud-native platform provides continuous monitoring capabilities for human and machine identities, creates an authoritative source of identity across complex security hierarchies, and enables adherence with the Shared Responsibility Model.
KEY PRODUCT FEATURES
How Saviynt's IGA Platform Helps Teams Secure a Multi-Cloud Ecosystem
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 cloud-native solution integrates with cloud platform notification services so as soon as a workload is created, we bootstrap SSH keys and credentials and automatically register the workload in PAM for ready access. Saviynt de-registers workloads when they are destroyed, providing the agility essential in an ephemeral environment.
Saviynt’s solution removes the complexity of key management, downloaded clients, and proxy or jump-box scaling problems that legacy PAM tools create with our web-based session request and connection. Our integration with Hashicorp enables keys-as-a-service and support browser-based terminal services access Windows and *NIX workloads via a just-in-time container initiated for this purpose. We support session recording, keylogging, and cloud-native logs so organizations can prove governance over privileged users and access.
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 intelligence-based platform integrates with enterprise SIEMs to provide holistic access visibility. Saviynt’s platform continuously monitors access privileges for control violations, such as those granted as part of emergency elevation or through a backdoor. When the platform detects potential violations, it sends alerts and suggests remediation actions, such as exception documentation, setting time limits, or rejections.
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.
Saviynt’s factory application onboarding model leverages our intelligent analytics with a template-based approach that automates and expedites modernization strategies by simplifying business tasks while improving quality and consistency. Organizations deploy the ID and security warehouse then prioritize applications. Next, organizations import Segregation of Duties (SoD) rulesets, users, usage data, asset management, applications, and entitlements. Organizations can typically complete Phase 1 within 90 days, depending on application complexity.
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 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.
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.
Developers utilizing DevOps tools for deployment need to ensure code can run with the necessary permissions, without storing authentication keys or passwords within that code. Saviynt’s API integration provides the tool for developers to make a programmatic call to the Saviynt vault to request access permissions and check out a key at the time of code execution. This creates a more secure environment, less subject to key exfiltration and compromise.
