Microsoft and Sailpoint join forces on Identity Governance
AUSTIN, February 10, 2017 – SailPoint, the leader in identity governance, today announced a collaboration with Microsoft to extend the value of Microsoft Azure Active Directory. SailPoint will add identity governance capabilities, including access certifications, access requests, separation-of-duty policy, role management, and audit reporting, to Azure Active Directory’s unique access management and identity protection services. The combination of services will cover the compliance, enhanced security and identity management needs of modern organizations in demanding industries such as healthcare and financial services.
“Organizations are struggling with how to best address the ever-changing security landscape while simultaneously opening their perimeter to ensure that employees, contractors and partners around the world have the right access to the right applications and data at the right time,” said Kevin Cunningham, president and founder of SailPoint. “Organizations can now better provide governance-based access to all of their on-premises and cloud applications and systems with the combination of Microsoft Azure Active Directory and SailPoint’s integrated identity governance capabilities. By working together with Microsoft, we accelerate our joint customers’ ability to empower users with seamless access while ensuring security requirements are met through identity governance.”
In addition to governing access across today’s hybrid IT environment, this collaboration allows organizations to get the identity governance capabilities of SailPoint and the risk-based identity protection of Azure Active Directory and Enterprise Mobility + Security to more platforms and applications on-premises and in the cloud.
“SailPoint has proven its commitment to driving innovation in the market. We’re thrilled to see SailPoint bring their identity governance capabilities to Microsoft Azure Active Directory and to our joint customers,” said Alex Simons, Director of Program Management, Identity Division, Microsoft Corp.
