Things higher education identity teams often ask about...

Is identity and access lifecycle management simple to deploy?

Saviynt’s intelligent EIC platform with a low-code/no code approach supports identity and access lifecycle management for universities. Our platform’s capabilities and configurations meet higher education specific use cases.

Does real-time provisioning actually work?

Absolutely. Saviynt dynamically grants and revokes access to varied user personas including, students, staff, volunteers, alumni, and MOOC users. For example, Saviynt automatically removes student access to a course upon course completion – and staff access to required systems can also be provisioned instantly.

What happens when Saviynt detects access issues or violations?

Saviynt Enterprise Identity Cloud 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.

Will your compliance controls work with my existing applications and platforms?

Saviynt provides pre-built compliance controls for critical applications. Controls align with key compliance mandates (GDPR, NY SHIELD, CCPA, HITRUST, PCI, SOX, NERC/CIP, COBIT, and CIS). The platform cross maps to regulatory initiatives, control frameworks, platforms, and control types.

What cloud risk remediations do you offer?

Saviynt integrates with notification services across multi-cloud ecosystems to evaluate every workload, database, serverless function, or other cloud asset initiation. The platform also scans for misconfigurations and control violations. An extensive library of risk signatures and controls identifies and sends security alerts – and even prevents risky assets from running. Saviynt can monitor privileged user access to crown-jewel systems and prevent data exfiltration commands from executing.
