Los Angeles, CA (March 28, 2019) - Saviynt, the Trust award-winning provider of intelligent, identity-driven security and compliance solutions and first and only identity access governance platform to achieve FedRAMP Authority-to-Operate (ATO) status, today announced David Thomson as the VP of Professional Services. In this role, he will be responsible for building and leading a delivery practice that focuses on customer satisfaction through project execution, enabling partners and building client relationships at multiple levels.

“During the course of David’s 18 years in Information Security, almost exclusively within the Identity and Access Management (IAM) domain, as a customer, vendor and SI partner, he has proven successful leadership over large identity projects,” said Amit Saha, CEO, Saviynt. He continued, “As VP of Professional Services, we know that David will lead Saviynt’s growth and ensure customer success.”

For 2019, Saviynt set out a strategic vision to reduce time-to-value for its customers. Saviynt’s hybrid model enables customers to implement IGA processes in just weeks or months instead of years as compared to some of its rivals, and the company increasingly seeks to accelerate deployment so customers can more rapidly realize ROI. As the VP of Professional Services, David is focused on realizing these goals as the Saviynt customer base is rapidly expanding.

David will use his industry experience to provide engagement oversight, consult with Saviynt clients, help develop new key offerings, and support sales initiatives. In addition, he will mentor other Saviynt team members while developing and maintaining relationships with clients, other vendors and delivery partners.

Increasingly, large global enterprises are adopting Saviynt’s innovative platform that delivers identity governance and administration, intelligent user access visibility, cloud privileged access management, and large-scale enterprise business-critical application integrations. The platform enables continuous monitoring over user and data access while incorporating automated risk-mitigation capabilities to help customers meet emerging industry standards and regulatory requirements.
