SailPoint is the leading provider of identity security for the modern enterprise. Enterprise security starts and ends with identities and their access, yet the ability to manage and secure identities today has moved well beyond human capacity. Using a foundation of artificial intelligence and machine learning, the SailPoint Identity Security Platform delivers the right level of access to the right identities and resources at the right time—matching the scale, velocity, and environmental needs of today’s cloud-oriented enterprise. Our intelligent, autonomous, and integrated solutions put identity security at the core of digital business operations, enabling even the most complex organisations across the globe to build a security foundation capable of defending against today’s most pressing threats.

The SailPoint Identity Security Cloud provides a range of capabilities to help organisations to ensure that users have the right access to perform their roles, without being overprovisioned. In addition to providing IGA functions such as user provisioning, access certifications, access request and separation of duties controls, the solution enables in-depth understand of user access across cloud platforms (IaaS, SaaS), unstructured data in file systems and common cloud storage and deep controls over access in SAP.
The SailPoint Identity Security Cloud has a true multi-tenant, micro-services based architecture to provide scalability and security, allowing customers to focus on what matters in their identity programmes and increase value from the solution.
The platform incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning (ML) at the core to improve on common identity processes, making recommendations to users around access and showing exceptional or outlying access where risk is likely greater. ML is also used to help create and maintain a role model to further smooth delivery of access.
SailPoint provides a large number of connectors to platforms, applications and systems which provide automation around provisioning and deprovisioning, reducing the costs and effort associated with manual activies on access such as helpdesk agent time. Common systems have included connectors with a simple, wizard driven configuration. Other systems can leverage standards-based approaches with some additional configuration which allows for integration with almost all applications. Connected applications may be both in cloud and on-premises which means that a single identity solution can control access across the entire IT estate. Integrations are also available with other IT and security infrastructure, allowing identity data to be leveraged in other systems or processes to be executed externally (such as using ITSM for driving self-service access request, governed by the SailPoint platform). Publically documented APIs are provided for custom integration work and a no-code workflow engine is included to allow for automation of identity processes.
As an organisation focused on security, SailPoint implements strict compliance standards to help our customers comply with their own industry regulations. SailPoint completes SOC 1 Type 2 and SOC 2 Type 2 audits annually and maintains ISO27001 certification.

Norfolk County Council needed a solution that automated the process of managing their identities to gain full visibility into employee access. Being subject to government policy and security standards, they needed an end-to-end system to help them onboard, offboard and track access rights for full-time and temporary employees (including volunteers and students) across the entire council.
After a series of mergers and acquisitions, ABN AMRO had various homegrown and legacy systems that made it difficult to get a single view of user access. They knew in order to gain control of their IT environment and provide secure access, they needed to strengthen their identity program.
The University of Reading needed to update their semi-manual identity program. Establishing access for users was inconsistent and took considerable time, so the university was ready to streamline access and create more convenient processes for students, associate (guest) users and staff by building a dynamic and automated identity program.
