Saviynt is an identity authority platform built to power and protect the world at work. In a world of digital transformation, where organizations are faced with increasing cyber risk but cannot afford defensive measures to slow down progress, Saviynt’s Enterprise Identity Cloud gives customers unparalleled visibility, control and intelligence to better defend against threats while empowering users with right-time, right-level access to the digital technologies and tools they need to do their best work.

Access certification is a process that ensures that the access rights and permissions of users for various enterprise applications are reviewed, validated, and approved periodically by appropriate authorities in an organization. It helps in identifying unauthorized access and preventing security breaches. Saviynt’s  cloud-based identity governance and administration (IGA) solution provides access certification capabilities through its SaaS offering. Saviynt's access certification solution enables organizations to automate the access certification process, streamline compliance reporting, and maintain a strong security posture. With Saviynt's access certification solution, organizations can define access policies and rules for different user types, roles, and responsibilities. The solution automates the access certification process by sending notifications to managers and supervisors to review access rights for their team members and provides an easy to use interface where they can approve, revoke or modify access rights based on their assessment.
