SailPoint Drives the Future of Identity Governance with SailPoint Predictive Identity™

SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SAIL), the leader in enterprise identity governance, today unveiled the SailPoint Predictive Identity™ platform, the intelligent cloud identity platform of the future that accelerates the industry to the next generation of identity governance. With SailPoint Predictive Identity, SailPoint is delivering a new world of adaptive security and continuous compliance that makes identity easy, transparent and autonomous.

“The next phase of identity needs to anticipate user access needs, spot and respond to risky behaviour, achieve continuous compliance and adapt security policies to respond to today’s dynamic business environment,” said Paul Trulove, SailPoint Chief Product Officer. “Our customers turn to us as the industry leader to constantly innovate by delivering the next generation of identity that addresses their ever-changing business and IT needs. We are once again redefining the boundaries of what a comprehensive identity governance program should be capable of with SailPoint Predictive Identity.”

SailPoint Predictive Identity is built on big data and machine learning (ML) technology which enables an AI-driven approach to identity governance, taking identity from reactive to predictive and autonomous. SailPoint Predictive Identity:

  • Automates identity processes using AI-driven recommendations while finding new areas of access and bringing them under governance with auto-discovery.
  • Provides predictive modelling allowing for instant discovery and creation of access policies using ML, while ensuring access is always up-to-date with current business needs.
  • Drives adaptive security powered by AI, alerting security professionals when potentially dangerous behaviours are detected and, with peer group modelling, identifying hidden risk due to inappropriate access.
  • Delivers continuous compliance, quickly shaping and evolving compliance policies with AI-suggested policies and, using machine learning, launches targeted certification campaigns on risky users and areas of access.

SailPoint Predictive Identity capabilities will be integrated into IdentityIQ 8.0 and the newest release of IdentityNow, both available in June 2019.

“There are two factors at play among organisations of all sizes today,” Trulove continued. “First, the velocity of today’s business environment is moving at a break-neck pace. This is compounded by the fact that today’s IT landscape is highly complex given the number and diversity of users, applications and data that organisations now manage. Identity and business teams simply cannot keep up with manually analysing identity data and patterns to understand whether the right users have access to the right systems and data throughout the organisation. AI and ML will play an increasingly critical role in how businesses adapt access models as the business evolves, either autonomously or through recommendation-based identity governance processes.”

“Our identity program is ever-evolving, particularly given how much our own IT environment continues to change thanks to our ongoing efforts to increasingly digitise our business,” said Shawn Lawson, Head of IT Engineering & Operations, Silicon Valley Bank. “As an identity practitioner, it is an exciting time to be in identity. The idea of being able to drive a more predictive versus reactive identity program, one that adapts to our business, security and IT needs is a welcome one.”

“In collaboration with alliance partners like SailPoint, Accenture is taking identity to the next level by making it easier for organisations to deploy and manage programs across their business,” said Rex Thexton, a managing director at Accenture who leads its Digital Identity practice. “Thanks to advanced technologies, more companies globally can now easily adopt an identity program, expediting the time it takes to establish the right roles and access rights. We are eager to work together with SailPoint and our clients to help them accelerate the adoption of identity governance as a critical foundation for a secure digital transformation.”

Save the date: During Navigate ’19 in Austin on June 10-12, SailPoint’s Paul Trulove will unveil the SailPoint Predictive Identity vision and lead a panel discussion on how the future of Identity will shape digital transformations across the globe.
