Earlier this week, we announced our partnership with Saviynt, a leading provider of identity governance and cloud security solutions. The partnership allows for the Axiomatics Dynamic Authorization suite to integrate with Saviynt’s Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) solutions. This integration provides mutual customers with increased value by improving connectivity between administration-time and run-time access control solutions.
Saviynt’s cloud security and IGA solutions enable enterprises to secure applications, data, and infrastructure in a single platform for both cloud and enterprise data warehouses. Through this strategic partnership, Axiomatics and Saviynt connect their technologies to strengthen Saviynt’s IGA solutions by unlocking in-depth access information from the Axiomatics Dynamic Authorization engine. Saviynt customers will benefit from a single, centralized view of the access control landscape across the enterprise, that will now include more detailed information about APIs, microservices, and data resources protected by Axiomatics.
The Axiomatics Dynamic Authorization Suite enables an externalized, policy-based approach to access control. Using Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC), this next generation framework leverages attributes to build policies that help define precise scenarios under which access should be granted. When combined with Saviynt’s IGA solutions, the Axiomatics ABAC engine can consume curated and governed attribute metadata from the IGA warehouse and can connect with this attribute source to solve the most complex access control use cases. In addition, Saviynt’s IGA tool can help with ABAC policy and workflow governance.
Saviynt is pioneering IGA 2.0 by integrating technologies like advanced risk analytics and intelligence with fine-grained privilege management. They are leading technology innovation in IGA, and we are excited to embark on a mutually beneficial relationship with them. This partnership and the technology integration is unique as it is a powerful, synergistic combination of how IGA and ABAC systems work best when deployed in tandem.
ABAC and IGA technologies can easily work in sync with one another to enable the governance of ABAC policies to provide an additional level of visibility and transparency for externalized authorization deployment. A single dashboard for IGA and ABAC provides high-level indicators of what’s happening in both systems. In addition, by governing the access of APIs and microservices, ABAC can give additional insight into the security of modern applications.
“Axiomatics has a deep understanding of the externalized authorization landscape. By combining their access control expertise with our identity governance background, we can take IGA technologies to the next level,” said Amit Saha, CEO of Saviynt. “We are now in a unique position to provide businesses with more in-depth access information while simplifying our identity governance offerings.
