Simplifying the business user experience must be balanced against ensuring that user access is managed according to corporate policies, with governance and compliance in mind. Based on a governance approach, the SailPoint IdentityIQ identity management solution provides a leading edge experience to enterprise customers trying to balance Convenience and Control.

IdentityIQ is SailPoint's identity and access management solution supporting a wide variety of IAM processes – including automated access certifications, policy management, access request and provisioning, password management, and identity intelligence.

Equipped with resource connectors (included as part of the base platform), IdentityIQ delivers out-of-the-box integration to a wide variety of applications running in the datacenter or the cloud.

Lifecycle Manager

to provide users with self-service access request and password management capabilities and to automate lifecycle event management based on user lifecycle changes.

Compliance Manager

to streamline the execution of compliance controls and improve audit performance through automated access certifications and policy management

Identity Intelligence

to transform technical identity data spread across multiple systems into centralised, easy to understand business-relevant information.

Governance Platform

to provide a single place to model roles, policies, and risk supporting compliance and provisioning processes across the organisation

Integration Modules

to provide flexible options to connect to third party solutions for collecting data and/or orchestrating provisioning changes

The identity and access management market what began as two relatively distinct markets, user provisioning and access governance, have merged into a single category of identity governance and administration.

“SailPoint, one of the pioneers of identity and access governance technology, offers IdentityIQ with several optional modules. Its product should appeal to organisations with stringent governance requirements that also need a moderate level of provisioning (up to 250 targets).”
