Silicon Valley Raises the Bar on Innovation.

“The fact that we were able to bring 165 applications into our program — and do it in two years and under budget — is quite miraculous for an identity and access management program.”

— Shawn Lawson, head of IT, Silicon Valley Bank


Silicon Valley Bank

Silicon Valley Bank is a U.S.-based high-tech commercial bank that has helped fund more than 30,000 start-ups. It is one of the largest banks in the United States and one of the largest providers of financial services to wine producers in Northern California’s wine country.

The challenge

With increased regulatory compliance demands and identity being managed in an ad hoc way, Silicon Valley Bank sought more consistency and security for their identity program.

The solution

  • Meet regulatory demands
  • Centralize and standardize identity across the organization
  • Increase employee productivity

The results

By addressing all users, applications and data, Silicon Valley Bank developed an identity program that reduces risk and improves operational efficiencies. Automating certification campaigns is no longer time consuming for managers, removing a previously costly and ineffective process. Employees and contractors now have swift access to the resources they need, all while improving the company’s security posture.
