Mitigate Third-Party Access Risk

Prevent data breach risks arising from contractor
and vendor access to the ecosystem

Apply Risk-Based Identity and Access Governance Controls to Vendors

An organization’s contractors need access to digital resources, but companies struggle to gain full visibility into vendor access risk as complex IT ecosystems and legacy Identity, Governance, and Administration (IGA) tools increase operational overhead. 

Saviynt’s cloud-native platform converges IGA and vendor access management (VAM) in a single platform that streamlines onboarding, automates compliance activities, and documents governance.

Incorporate Vendor Access Risk Into Onboarding

Saviynt enables full control over the vendor onboarding process with integration to external invitation processes, risk-based creation policies, configurable end-dates, and delegation capabilities. We help you ensure vendors only have access to resources required for contractual purposes, during their contract.

Reduce IT Administrator Burdens

Saviynt’s onboarding delegation capabilities reduce time and operational costs from onboarding contractors. Your organization can designate administrative delegates for vendor companies and assign them the onboarding duties for their population.

Assign Sponsors/Owners

Saviynt provides sponsor/owner assignment for each vendor relationship, tying an internal user to vendor access to ensure governance. Sponsors/owners include vendors in their periodic access reviews and revoke access if a vendor company’s employee terminates employment, to prevent orphaned vendor access.

View Risk Holistically

Saviynt’s Risk Exchange integrates with key monitoring solutions, including SIEM and UEBA platforms, to enhance risk visibility and create a single source of documentation. Our platform reduces time and staffing burdens that make vendor access management compliance monitoring cumbersome.

Control External File-Sharing

Saviynt’s Data Access Governance (DAG) enables organizations to create data access policies with file-level, fine-grained entitlements. To give you control over vendor file-sharing, our platform scans structured and unstructured data, automatically blocks external file-sharing in near-real-time, and requires authorization before releasing quarantined data.

Simplify Compliance

Saviynt’s Control Exchange simplifies compliance with its out-of-the-box control repository and a Unified Controls Framework cross-mapped across business-critical regulations, industry standards, platforms, and control types.

How Saviynt's IGA Platform Helps Teams Govern External Identities

Identity & Access Lifecycle Management

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.

Fine-Grained Entitlement Visibility

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.

Risk-Based Data Access Governance

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.

Automated Real-Time Provisioning

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. 

Continuous Controls Monitoring

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.

Control Exchange

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.

Cross-Application SoD

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.
