Redefining Access Governance for Security and Fraud Prevention in Critical Applications
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, December 07, 2017 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am ET, 7:00am PT
Continued digitalization of modern organizations, supported by the growing adoption of cloud computing, big data and other innovative information technologies, shows no signs of slowing down. Critical business data such as corporate intellectual property, financial documents or sensitive personal information, which traditionally have been kept in the most secure on-premises systems, must now be made accessible to the outside world: remote offices, mobile workforce, business partners, sometimes even the whole Internet.
Enterprise platforms from SAP, Microsoft or Oracle, applications for highly regulated industries like finance or healthcare, even cloud services – all of them have their own unique and complex security models and each is usually managed by a separate team. Growing organically but even more so through mergers and acquisitions, a substantially large enterprise inevitably faces the challenge of managing risk and maintaining regulatory compliance across multiple and highly heterogeneous critical applications. Some of them are no longer even under their direct control and are managed instead by a cloud service provider.
The only viable approach towards tackling this enormous challenge is to design a holistic method to enforce access controls and implement access governance for all critical applications, on-premises and in the cloud. Only when these controls are applied uniformly and continuously providing organizations full and clear insight into every business application platform, can an organization assume that its assessments of security risks and regulatory compliance are based in reality.
In this KuppingerCole webinar, we will cover the following topics:
- Digital Transformation and its impact on critical business applications
- Challenges and risks of securing critical data across heterogeneous platforms and systems
- Next-generation Access Governance as the foundation for reducing fraud and managing risk
- Presenting an integrated cloud-based access governance and intelligence solution
In the first part of the webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about the need for redefining Access Governance as the foundation for mitigating security and fraud risk. Organizations need to implement Access Governance for all critical applications across heterogeneous environments. They need insight into details. And they need more efficient approaches to reduce the burden on the business departments.
In the second part, Yash Prakash, Vice President of Products at Saviynt, will provide an overview of the company’s Cloud Access Governance and Intelligence solution and explain how the framework supports heterogenous platforms, how rulesets and controls are defined and mapped to industry regulations.

Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions are critical cybersecurity controls that address the security risks associated with the use of privileged access in organizations and companies. To reduce the risk of privileged accounts being hijacked or used fraudulently, and to uphold regulatory compliance, a strong PAM solution is essential. But finding the right PAM solution can be challenging.
