SailPoint Unveils Version 6.0 of Market-Leading Identity Management Solution
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
Continuing to drive innovation in the identity management market, SailPoint
today announced a major release of SailPoint
IdentityIQ™. With IdentityIQ 6.0, SailPoint once again raises the
bar for the business user experience by introducing easy-to-use,
consumer-level features to further accelerate the active participation
of business users in managing access while reducing their IT risk and
meeting stricter compliance requirements. IdentityIQ 6.0 provides
the enterprise-class identity and access controls that the world's
largest organizations require and a user experience as simple and easy
to use as a consumer application that business users demand.
"Business user involvement is critical to the success of an enterprise
security and compliance strategy and user experience is a key to
ensuring organizations get active, ongoing, participation," said Ian
Glazer, research vice president and agenda manager at Gartner.
"Once deployed, identity and access governance solutions can improve the
experience of business users. As those tools evolve to more closely
mirror the user experience that consumer-focused technologies provide,
it will be even easier for organizations to achieve widespread
participation from business managers."
IdentityIQ, which is currently being used by hundreds of the world's
largest organizations, is a proven
enterprise-grade identity management solution that scales to support
thousands of business users at a single time. New features in IdentityIQ
6.0 designed to provide an enhanced, consumer-like experience for the
multiples of business users being asked to participate in an
organization's compliance and security efforts include
Google (News - Alert)-like Keyword Search: Powerful relevance-based search and
predictive analytics eliminate the guesswork for business users,
allowing them to very quickly pinpoint the right access privileges in
the IdentityIQ access catalog helping guide them to the right roles or
entitlements to request.
Affinity Search: Building on IdentityIQ's ecommerce shopping
functionality that mimics an online retail experience, business users
can now "shop" for access privileges based on what other colleagues or
groups of colleagues have, in a policy-controlled and risk-aware
environment. This removes a significant administrative burden on IT
while still ensuring that access privileges are in line with corporate
Activity-centric Dashboard: IdentityIQ 6.0's robust dashboard
transforms how business users manage access with one-click entry into
access request, password management and compliance activities and with
new "visual alerts" which highlight actions that need to be taken,
including approvals, policy alerts and certification notifications.
Business users can easily personalize their IdentityIQ dashboard to
enhance their user experience.
Advanced Business Intelligence Capabilities: A new report
designer with more sophisticated charting and graphing capabilities
delivers business users a customized reporting experience based on
ready-to-use report templates. Additionally, IdentityIQ 6.0 expands
support for "direct connect" options to the IdentityIQ data store,
which allows organizations to leverage external business intelligence
tools on top of IdentityIQ's rich data model.
Expanded SaaS (News - Alert) Application Support: To help IT support the
growing business demand for software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings,
IdentityIQ 6.0 extends existing compliance and provisioning processes
to the cloud with the addition of new SaaS connectors, including:
Amazon AWS, Box.net, Exchange Online, GotoMeeting, Office 365,
NetSuite (News - Alert), ServiceNow, SharePoint Online, and WebEx.
"IdentityIQ 6.0 continues SailPoint's tradition of out-innovating the
market in a way that delivers immediate value to our customers," said
Trent Fitz, vice president of product and market at SailPoint. "From its
inception, SailPoint's risk-based approach to identity management
recognized that IT organizations and business users need to collaborate
in order to successfully manage identity-related concerns across the
enterprise. SailPoint was the first solution to market that made it
easier for business users to participate in what was historically a very
technical process. With 6.0, we're once again pushing the boundaries as
we address the new challenges that the 'consumerization of IT' is
presenting to our customers."
Continuing its commitment to industry standards, several of IdentityIQ
6.0's capabilities utilize the new SCIM
specification, including an upgraded Cloud Gateway (News - Alert) that enables the
secure, highly reliable exchange of identity and access data no matter
where that data resides - whether on-premises or in the cloud. This
gives organizations the flexibility to manage all identity and access
data within a single, centralized governance platform.
