About Us

Background image

From managing third-party identity risk to establishing a master identity system of record, we ensure that organizations have the data they need to make well-informed, risk-based, access decisions.

SecZetta provides third-party identity and master identity management solutions that are easy to use, and purpose built to help organizations execute risk-based identity access and lifecycle strategies for employee and non-employee populations. With SecZetta, organizations can improve the time and the cost of making well-informed access decisions while reducing risk.

We are also a proud member of The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA), a group of identity and security vendors, solution providers and practitioners that acts as an independent source of education and information on identity centric security strategies.
