Customer Background

For Holidu, a dynamically growing scale-up that is reshaping the holiday rental industry, the security of its customers', employees' and partners' data is a key asset. Faced with significant growth, the company wanted to avoid the usual accompanying phenomenon of data sprawl and excessive user permissions within its infrastructure.

Holidu needed a robust solution to control identity sprawl and effectively manage user permissions across their cloud-based operations. They were looking for a single platform that could manage both human and non-human identities. With a rapidly expanding team and high data sensitivity, maintaining security and compliance were top priorities for Holidu.

And our team loves the solution too, because it improves security whilst relieving our internal resources." – Michael Siebers, CTO & Co-Founder of Holidu

Michael Siebers, impressed by the simplicity and efficiency of CyberDesk, emphasized the ease of integration without the need for extensive engineering support.
