SailPoint Provides Customers Freedom of Choice in Identity Governance DeploymentMarch 5, 2018
SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc. today unveiled the company’s comprehensive delivery strategy that provides customers with deployment options for their identity governance platform, spanning: software-as-a-service, in the public cloud, in their own data center or from a managed service provider. SailPoint is the first and only vendor to offer a comprehensive identity governance platform while providing customers with the freedom to choose the deployment option that best suits their needs.
"Global enterprises face a myriad of changing business requirements, which in turn is forcing them to evolve their infrastructure. Some organizations are moving to a cloud-first strategy while others are looking for a delivery option that reduces their needs for skilled staff and limits infrastructure capital expenses," said Kevin Cunningham, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-founder for SailPoint. "Regardless of their preference in approach, every enterprise needs an identity governance platform that manages their entire hybrid IT environment. We found that providing our customers with a comprehensive set of deployment options gave them the freedom to choose the identity governance delivery strategy that best aligns with their infrastructure strategy."
SailPoint’s Customer-Driven Delivery Strategy
Global enterprises can choose to deploy SailPoint’s market-leading identity governance solutions via the following comprehensive options:
- SaaS: Delivered as a turn-key SaaS offering to enable mid-sized enterprises to rapidly adopt a comprehensive approach to identity that takes advantage of the fast time-to-value and ease-of-use that SaaS provides
- Public Cloud: Customer hosted in a public cloud platform (like Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure) to maximize the benefits of a fully owned and operated identity governance platform balanced with the agility and efficiencies of the public cloud
- Data Center: Deployed on premises, for those organizations with a desire to maintain complete control of their identity infrastructure while addressing the sophisticated needs of the large enterprise environment
- Managed Service: Hosted and delivered by a trusted Managed Service Provider, delegating some or all identity governance administration to a proven service provider to assess, deploy, manage and support overall identity efforts
"The market has matured and evolved with enterprises now having varying preferences in deployment models," continued Cunningham. "While some of our largest customers favor migration to the public cloud, others choose to remain on-premises. On the other hand, a fast-emerging mid-market enterprise company may favor a SaaS offering. Between the two is the emerging MSP market. We are pleased to be offering our customers a choice in deployment options."
SailPoint works with a range of MSP partners including the global systems integrators and regional resellers. Some of our current partners include Accenture, Column Technologies, Grabowsky, IDMWORKS, NNIT and PwC.
"Our clients want immediate value from identity governance tools. They need fast deployment patterns, platform variety and security services to ensure resiliency is delivered for internal and external users as capabilities scale," said Rex Thexton, managing director, Digital Identity, Accenture Security. "This combined with an identity governance strategy delivers the critical security-first approach that is needed to help our clients drive risk out of their programs with velocity."
"Our customers are looking for the quickest time to value when deploying an identity governance program," said Richard Mardling, Director, Identity & Access Management, PwC. "By offering a variety of deployment options, including the ability to deploy as a managed service, we can tailor identity governance programs for our customers that best suits their business environment. This enables our customers to more quickly realize the impact that identity has on their business."
