CLOUD ACCESS GOVERNANCE AND INTELLIGENCE, AN OVERVIEW
A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO MANAGING ACCESS ACROSS DATA, INFRASTRUCTURE, AND APPLICATIONS
What is Cloud Access Governance? 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 “least privilege necessary” access controls for users within Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud ecosystems.
Why is Cloud Access Governance Important? IT is undergoing a huge transformation as enterprises increasingly adopt the Cloud to meet business demands for elasticity, flexibility, and scalability. With hybrid IT becoming a norm, critical assets are now distributed: sensitive data or critical infrastructure already resides on the Cloud and outside the enterprise’s traditional perimeter.
How Saviynt Can Help Saviynt’s Cloud Access Governance and Intelligence solution provides a single pane of glass to see users’ access across data, infrastructure, and applications on the Cloud or iinside the enterprise. Saviynt’s Cloud Access Governance and Intelligence platform, delivered either from the Cloud or on-premises, combines intelligent IGA processes with usage and risk analytics.
