SecZetta And Active Cyber Announce Partnership to Help Organizations Increase Cyber Resilience Through Third-party Identity Risk Management

Authoritative source of identity data key to implementing zero-trust approach to identity


Fall River, MA. & Dallas, TX. May 17, 2022 – SecZetta, a leading provider of third-party identity risk solutions, today announced a new partnership with Active Cyber, a leading cloud consultancy, specializing in the implementation of Cloud-based Identity & Access Management (IAM) solutions. Active Cyber will resell the SecZetta Third-Party Identity Risk solution and provide consulting and implementation services to organizations seeking to implement a complete, zero-trust solution to their third-party non-employee challenges.

Organizations in almost every vertical industry are relying on growing and increasingly diverse numbers of third parties to provide the elasticity they need to quickly and cost-effectively respond to operational needs.  However, most organizations have no way to centrally track and manage their relationships with this ever-increasing number of non-employees or the access to enterprise assets they require. SecZetta closes a technology gap in third-party identity governance, providing third-party identity risk solutions that are easy to use and purpose-built to help organizations execute risk-based identity access and lifecycle strategies for third-party non-employee populations and provides the most value when used in conjunction with industry leading IGA solutions like Okta and SailPoint. Active Cyber delivers value throughout the sales and delivery process by consulting with and advising customers around a complete, zero-trust solution to their third-party challenges – one that includes SecZetta alongside these other industry-leading identity solutions.

“Organizations are investing heavily in cybersecurity programs to make them more resilient against cyber-incidents and enable them to detect attacks in a shorter timeframe to minimize the costs associated with breaches,” said Kishore Vankayalapati, CIAM Practice Leader, Active Cyber. “Not surprisingly, one area that’s gaining increased focus is third-party identity risk management, considering some notable breaches in the recent past used third-party partners as an entry point. The SecZetta solution enables organizations to manage non-employee identities throughout their lifecycle and provides a single source of truth with seamless integration into enterprise identity & access management systems such as Okta and SailPoint. We are very excited to partner with SecZetta to help our clients optimize and automate their third-party identity governance processes, improving their risk postures and increasing operational efficiencies.”

“Active Cyber’s expertise uniquely positions them to advise clients around a true zero-trust approach to identity, ensuring both internal and external workforce needs are met with respect to trusted, authoritative identity data that is essential for end-to-end identity governance,” said Jeremy Rohrs, SVP, global channel, alliances and corporate development, SecZetta. “Non-employee identity governance is critical to limiting the attack surface of organizations relying on third-party services. We look forward to collaborating with Active Cyber to empower customers to maximize their use of third-party resources to support their business needs by managing the identity lifecycle and risk of third-party users and strengthening their resilience to identity-related cyber incidents.”

Change Management

An organization’s ability to successfully manage change has become critical to maintaining a competitive edge in an era of rapid technological advancement and increasing global competition. A recent report on the frequency of change in the workplace suggests that as many as 375 million workers worldwide will face significant changes in their workplaces by 2030. Change – be it structural, strategic, or technical – comes with a myriad of challenges, ranging from ineffective communication and competing resource requirements to lack of buy-in and resistance among employees. A failure to plan for these challenges has led to a reported 70% failure rate in attempted organizational change over the past several years.

Change requires active planning and hands-on management before, during, and after implementation that focuses on building a long-term company culture of learning and innovation. Successful change in the workplace demands more than designing processes and handing them down to employees; instead, an organization’s aptitude for change is rooted in how well it is able identify and effectively mobilize agents of change and key stakeholders internally, mitigate risks and resistance, and continuously monitor performance.

Change Management shifts the concept of change away from a one-time, top-down order towards a collaborative process with lasting effects on company culture and an organization’s ability to seize new opportunities for growth and innovation. An effective and comprehensive Change Management strategy is vital for companies looking to not only keep pace with the innovation curve, but to become leaders of the curve through flexibility, communication, and adaptability.

A Case Study: Using Workday Adaptive Planning for a Comprehensive View into Total Compensation and Corporate Bonuses

Company Overview:

A leading software-driven cloud networking solution provider for large data center storage and computing environments.


The company’s sales employee compensation environment is strongly structured around a comprehensive portfolio of bonuses, equity, and stock options. In the existing Workday environment they had lots of information; however, HR lacked a planning model that showed compensation in 3 month, 6 month, and 12 month increments for forward looking compensation decision making. Lacking this visibility made calculating compensation packages a complicated and arduous task with very little ability to forecast different compensation scenarios.


With Workday Adaptive Planning, Active Cyber and Core Team were able to build a forecasting environment which provided a comparative view of future total compensation visibility, catered to this company’s individual needs and taking into consideration equity and stock options as well as regular compensation. Through the power of Workday Adaptive Planning, Active Cyber also provided the ability to model this data over various lengths of time with very little effort. This change has streamlined and revolutionized HR and Finance’s ability to accurately and efficiently forecast total compensation with autonomy. With the success of this instance, this company also plans to have Active Cyber implement Workday Adaptive Planning for Finance.

It is important to note that this instance of Workday Adaptive Planning, developed and implemented by Active Cyber, is a landmark first of its kind solution: providing a comprehensive view into total compensation and corporate bonus modeling. Active Cyber continually strives to stay ahead of the curve and developing innovative uses cases such as these to meet each customer’s unique needs and increase the ROI of a Workday Adaptive Planning purchase.
