LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Saviynt, the leader in Cloud Access Governance and Intelligence, today announced a strategic partnership with Continuous Automation and DevOps leader, Chef Software.
Infrastructure Automation and DevOps has enabled organizations to rapidly move their workloads to the cloud with Chef as one of the leading pioneers in this movement. However, compliance and governance have always been perceived as blockers to speed. Saviynt has partnered with Chef to disrupt this notion by providing the agility organizations expect at the speed they need while remaining compliant and secure.
"Saviynt's integration with Chef will now allow enterprises to get complete visibility while managing high privileged access on Chef entities. Organizations looking for an Identity and Access Governance and Administration solution for their Chef ecosystem can take full advantage of this partnership by embedding Saviynt into their existing DevOps workflows with no impacts. These organizations can achieve the principle of 'shifting security to the left' seamlessly," said Vibhuti Sinha, Chief Cloud Officer at Saviynt.
"The cloud is central to every enterprise's modern application strategy and Chef's Continuous Automation platform provides the foundational capabilities needed to make that shift successful. We are delighted to be part of Saviynt's solution to accelerate cloud migration without jeopardizing compliance and security efforts," said Kimberly Martin, Vice President Business Development and Partners at Chef.
"Our strategic partnership with Chef, the leader in Continuous Automation Software, ultimately helps protect the brand integrity of the customers we both serve. By combining our strengths, we are removing significant risk and time for our customers by automating security and access governance of identities building or managing cloud environments. In doing so, customers migrate/manage faster and improve upon their time to value, while having the needed confidence that their compliance standards are being achieved," added Jerod Curley, Senior Vice President Strategy and Technology Alliances at Saviynt.
