OCG and Saviynt announce new strategic partnership: Making identity governance and cloud security a priority

Oxford Computer Group (OCG) has announced details of its new strategic partnership with leading identity governance and cloud security specialists Saviynt.

Having recently launched details of its extended integration with Microsoft’s Azure AD platform, the Saviynt partnership will enable OCG to offer future-proof identity governance solutions to its enterprise customers.

Enhancing value: Partnerships that make a real difference

OCG Managing Director, Neil Coughlan, states that the partnership supports the company’s position as an identity-driven security specialist:

“Partnering with Saviynt underlines OCG’s commitment to helping our customers meet their security and compliance obligations.

“With cloud apps and mobile working transforming businesses of all types, we believe having visibility of your digital identities and implementing appropriate access controls are key to keeping your organisation protected.”

Saviynt CEO, Sachin Nayyar, says that the partnership has enabled the firm to add strategic value to their position, reaching key new clients in the UK market:

“OCG is a longtime, award-winning Microsoft identity and security services partner. Their understanding of this space has played a valuable role in articulating our value to Microsoft’s senior Azure team. And now, in partnership with OCG, we’re helping to deliver identity governance to Microsoft Azure Active Directory customers.

“OCG has taken the Saviynt message to their anchor clients and are putting them on the fast track to IGA 2.0.

“OCG is an incredible partner to have.”

OCG’s relationship with Microsoft is well-established in the UK market and Alex Simons, Director of Program Management in Microsoft’s Identity Division, has noted that there is no other partner in the world that the technology giant works more closely with than OCG.
