Thought Leaders in Cyber Security: Saviynt CEO Amit Saha (Part 4)

Posted on Thursday, Oct 28th 2021

Sramana Mitra: Let’s double-click down into your own space. Talk to me about what are the key drivers and key customer pain points that you’re addressing. What are the trends within your space? Tell me about some of the white spaces within your segment where there is opportunity for innovation and where new entrepreneurs can plug some of those gaps that you are not working on.

Amit Saha: The biggest trend right now in the identity and security business is around zero trust. If you look at the Biden administration, they launched an initiative with different vendors to look at zero trust. It means different things to different people. Zero trust is an approach and mindset. Based on a context, you make decisions on the fly on how much you want to trust and how much access do you want the user to have.

Thought Leaders in Cyber Security: Saviynt CEO Amit Saha (Part 3)

Posted on Wednesday, Oct 27th 2021

Sramana Mitra: The other driver, I imagine, is the selection of different products. There is so much innovation happening in the cybersecurity space. It has become very difficult for small companies innovating on specific point products to get into the Global 2000. The Global 2000 CIO’s are really swamped with new products to absorb and evaluate. A specialized managed service provider who does all that product and technology selection would be very attractive.

Amit Saha: Managing and abstracting the customer from the complexity of the tools and integrated them is critical. Another aspect is, identity is moving closer to the business workflow. We have a product called third-party access governance. That access governance in Global 2000 customers varies from industry to industry.

Thought Leaders in Cyber Security: Saviynt CEO Amit Saha (Part 2)

Posted on Tuesday, Oct 26th 2021

Sramana Mitra: In the different segments that you talked about, what is the competitive landscape and the market share situation? Who is the market share leader in each of these categories? Where do you fit in?

Amit Saha: On the access management side, there are two top leaders, Microsoft being one of them. There are other players as well. Saviynt has a strong partnership with all of those players. On the IGA side, which is one of our core foundations, Saviynt is one of the leaders. In the PAM space, one of the market leaders is CyberArk. Then there are other private offerings.

Thought Leaders in Cloud Computing: Ohad Maislish, CEO of env0 (Part 2)

Posted on Tuesday, Oct 19th 2021

Ohad Maislish: Another use case is governance. Not every code should be executed. Some code can be very dangerous and expensive. That’s where you see Policy-as-a-Code. We see a lot of open policy agents (OPA) used to protect programmatic deployments before they happen. You can write policies that will prevent your organization from the wrong deployment. That’s like the unit test model for Infrastructure-as-a-Code.
