Building Veza’s Platform and Products

Our Pace of Product Innovations

At Veza, we are building The Identity Security Platform for Enterprise-Wide Access Governance. Identity is a business problem and the beyond IAM era is here. Organizations have lots of business initiatives with IGA, PAM, IAM, SaaS Access Security, Unstructured Data Governance, Machine Identity Management, and more – all rooted to help them secure identity access to data across the enterprise. The key is helping organizations understand – who can take what action on what data. We believe just like SSO and MFA became the standards of authentication, now is the time to take RBAC, the purest form of identity data to secure access to data everywhere.

In the first half of 2023, we launched 50+ new features, 50+ new integrations, and tons of product usability focused enhancements. Huge push on product design, and we are barely getting started. These new features and capabilities stretch across the entire identity access fabric of graph, search, visibility, monitoring, request, and access lifecycle. THANK YOU to our engineering teams that are hard at work to deliver product requirements and innovations at a breakneck speed, and most importantly thank you to our customers and partners who are pushing us on this pace of product innovations.

Access Workflows

  • Significant operator and review experience enhancements for certifications through data visualizations and charts to show certification progress and status.
