SailPoint unveils IAM-as-a-Service suite
Posted on 24 July 2013.
SailPoint announced IdentityNow, an IAM-as-a-service (IDaaS) that delivers enterprise-grade identity governance, provisioning and access management in a single, unified solution.

It provides all the benefits of software-as-a-service (SaaS)combined with the security, scalability, and enterprise integration capabilities.

IdentityNow provides end-to-end data security, including strong encryption and secure and firewall-friendly integration to on-premises applications. The company has completed a rigorous SSAE16 SOC 1 audit.

"A true enterprise-grade IDaaS solution provides a lot of value to organizations like ours by addressing all of our IAM needs in a single solution and reducing the amount of time spent on implementation and customization," said Roger Gilhooly, CISO of Freescale Semiconductor. "With IdentityNow, organizations can focus precious IT resources on rolling out new services to more applications, and that means more IT control and visibility over more applications in less time, which directly improves a company's security posture."

IdentityNow's out-of-the-box capabilities mitigate the need for the heavy customization that is commonplace in enterprise IAM tools. Default policies, solution templates, and setup wizards make it easy to begin using IdentityNow, allowing enterprises to roll out IAM services within a matter of days.

It also features a "mobile-first" interface and consumer-focused usability to simplify how business users manage daily IAM needs, including logging into cloud and web applications, requesting or reviewing access, and resetting passwords. The solution gives business users the convenience and ease of use they require, providing anytime, anywhere access to IdentityNow's services through their desktop and mobile devices.
