SailPoint Identity Security Cloud Delivers AI-Based Protection

SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc., a provider in enterprise identity security, is offering new innovations infused into the SailPoint Identity Security Cloud to help enterprises move beyond the traditional identity governance approach of looking at access after-the-fact and replacing it with a forward-looking approach to managing access.

Newly added to SailPoint Identity Security Cloud are additional intelligence capabilities, including contextual insights into access anomalies and persona-based reporting. These insights are powered by AI and build on SailPoint’s heritage as the first company to drive the vision of AI into identity security.

The platform now generates an industry-first Outlier Score with deep contextual insights, standardizing the measurement of access anomalies and providing deeper insights into what factors contributed to the Outlier Score.

Comprehensive persona-based dashboards and reporting provide simple data visualization, making information easier for business stakeholders such as internal auditors and identity program sponsors to understand and analyze.

In addition to these new intelligence capabilities, SailPoint also released new SaaS Workflows templates to help organizations automate identity tasks across systems.  Whether it is identifying and de-provisioning access for unused SaaS applications based on activity data or automatically generating an access review using the new Outlier score, these new templates will allow organizations to improve efficiency and security across their identity systems, according to the vendor.

“Today’s enterprises are faced with the challenge of managing tens—even hundreds—of thousands of digital identities,” said Grady Summers, SailPoint’s EVP of product. “This exponential growth has only added more complexity to today’s digital environments. When combined with problems like staffing shortages, increasingly complicated compliance regulations, and the rising cost of cyber insurance, it can be difficult to know where to begin. Our goal has always been to help our customers not only address those challenges, but to largely rewrite their identity security playbook— shifting the paradigm from complex to sophisticated yet simple to use. Altogether, this provides the improved user experience and operational efficiency that our customers demand and deserve.”

The platform leverages artificial intelligence (AI) technologies that speed and standardize the measurement of access risks across the organization, automating complex identity security processes, reducing both business cost and risk while improving productivity, according to the vendor.

With out-of-the-box integration capabilities, SailPoint Identity Security is designed to work seamlessly with existing security tools and allows customers to get up and running quickly. The combination of advanced intelligence, automation, and integration capabilities allows SailPoint Identity Security Cloud to effectively govern access to new applications and resources as they are added to user environments.
