Build a Stronger Identity Security Posture

Identity Security Posture

What is Identity Security?

Implementing Identity Security Posture best practices are crucial to secure the SaaS environment. Identities in SaaS applications can be either human, associated with individuals, or non-human, such as service accounts, API keys, and 3rd party app OAuth authorizations.

The validation of the user’s access control and authentication settings such as MFA and SSO are important, in addition to validation of role-based access management and user activity monitoring. As a means of prevention and first layer of defense, SSPM operates as the security layer in the Identity Fabric to establish robust user governance.


Identity Security Posture Use Cases

To harden your SaaS Security, strengthen your control of privileged users by gaining consolidated visibility of user accounts, permissions, and privileged activities.

Privileged Roles

Identify administrators and users with the highest permissions within any application to prioritize misconfiguration management, device management, and third party app access.

Permission Trimming

Implement the Principle of Least Privileged (PoLP) and ensure each SaaS user has the right level of access needed in order to ensure business operations while avoiding unnecessary access to sensitive data.

User Deprovisioning

Detect users that have been disabled in the Active Directory while still having access to SaaS applications, and detect dormant, privileged accounts from external domains to quickly ensure the deprovisioning of their access to SaaS if needed.

User Classification

Identify which users are external, internal, non human and any other categorization of choice.
