SOLUTIONS BY ROLE
The Risk and Compliance Officer
Use risk tolerance to drive automated workflows for a risk-aware approach to governing identity and access
Incorporate Risk Review and Remediation Across All Processes
Interconnected IT ecosystems streamline business processes but often obfuscate core risks that need to be identified, analyzed, and monitored to create an enterprise Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) vision.
Saviynt’s intelligent analytics continuously monitor for and identify new access risks, even across applications and clouds, while providing native connectors with GRC solutions so risk managers can create holistic enterprise risk management strategies.
How Saviynt Solves Challenges For the Risk and Compliance Officer
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 analytics restricts activity that could potentially lead to a breach. Leveraging powerful techniques such as quarantine, access lockdown, or security team alerts to address suspicious activity, Saviynt’s platform automatically prevents insecure data sharing.
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 Control Exchange provides out-of-the-box compliance controls for business-critical applications. By aligning controls with compliance mandates such as HIPAA, PCI, NERC/CIP, COBIT, and CIS, Saviynt’s platform accelerates the implementation of new controls to meet organizational business objectives and needs. Saviynt’s Control Exchange enables cross-mapping between regulatory initiatives, control frameworks, platforms, and control types as well as how Saviynt’s solution monitors and remediates risks. 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.
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 powerful data analysis capabilities include both pattern matching and natural language processing capabilities, ensuring that data which is PII, PCI, PHI or Intellectual Property can all be classified appropriately. Enterprises can leverage Saviynt to perform peer and behavioral analytics to detect high-risk activity based on various risk scoring parameters including volume spike, ingress/egress traffic, event rarity, outlier access, policy/control violations, threat intelligence, etc. Saviynt enables enterprises to perform signature-less analysis for rapid detection, effective investigation and closed-loop security response.
Saviynt’s platform automates micro-certifications, a limited review over specific access details, so that organizations can ensure security and compliance posture when users need to maintain multiple job functions. These can be based on user job changes within the organization or timebound access needs. Changes can trigger micro-certifications when the platform’s analytics detect additional risk arising from the users’ new status.
Saviynt integrates with notification services across multi-cloud ecosystems to evaluate every workload, database, serverless function, or other cloud asset initiation. Saviynt scans for misconfigurations, such as open clear-text ports on a database, and organizational control violations, like spinning up a database in development with production data. Saviynt’s extensive library of risk signatures and controls enables the platform to identify and send security alerts or even prevent risky assets from running.
With Saviynt’s intelligent analytics and peer analysis, managers and IT administrators involved in the access review and certification campaign process gain visibility directly into the riskiest access. Saviynt’s platform enables organizations to create business-process workflows focused on risk to alleviate the “rubber-stamping” often involved in periodic reviews and certification campaigns. Approvers see only those risks elevated based on “high-risk” designation, ensuring governance over user access and easing compliance burdens.
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 comes with over 250 security controls and risk signatures available out of the box based on industry compliance standards allowing rapid deployment of business use-cases based on industry best practices with drag-and-drop workflow configuration to expedite the customization of complex workflows. With a built-in, drill-down dashboard to monitor and analyze trends, history of control violations, as well as automatically generating alerts for control owners.
Saviynt’s platform leverages its extensive identity warehouse to find similarities to standardize role definitions. Our role engineering capability incorporates both bottom-up and top-down role analysis. Additionally, our solution can integrate usage-log analysis. This capability provides visibility into access granted but not being used that can lead to excess access risk. Our role-engineering also reviews access granted to some, but not all, individuals in a given role that should be expanded to all users in the role to decrease the number of access requests. Saviynt’s ability to clean up and standardize access across the organization mitigates the risks associated with excess access.
