Optiv Security and SailPoint Launch First-to-Market Identity Governance-as-a-Service Powered by IdentityNow

Sponsored by Businesswire

Pervasive enterprise digital transformation actions continue to
dramatically expand business complexity and the attack surface, leading
organizations to face increasing cybersecurity complexity. Compromised
identities are at the center of today’s challenges, however most
organizations are still executing project by project, capability by
capability. To enable organizations to implement identity and data
management strategies based on business outcomes, Optiv
and SailPoint
Technologies Holdings, Inc.
today announced a new Optiv Identity
Governance-as-a-Service, the first-to-market as-a-Service powered by IdentityNow.
This new offering is a key element of Optiv’s Cyber-as-a-Service
(CaaSTM) Platform
, and a core component of Optiv’s
end-to-end Identity-as-a-Service capability, with two additional
offerings scheduled for release later this year: digital access
management as-a-Service and privileged access management as-a-Service.

Designed to allow organizations of all sizes to recognize the advantages
of implementing identity solutions without requiring significant
software and skillset expertise investments, Optiv’s Identity
Governance-as-a-Service is a comprehensive identity administration and
governance platform. It combines Optiv’s best practice approach and
extensive experience delivering holistic services that address identity
management challenges with the power of SailPoint’s IdentityNow, a
multi-tenant SaaS solution for cloud identity governance. Together, this
provides organizations of all sizes with a fully-featured identity
program that uses a subscription-based cloud model.

“To truly mitigate risks in a world moving at the speed of digital
transformation, businesses need a new approach to identity and data
governance that aligns with an effective model for risk governance.
Organizations must re-examine their identity programs through a lens
that focuses on speed and agility, so their transformation efforts
aren’t derailed,” said Julie Talbot-Hubbard, vice president and general
manager, identity and data management for Optiv. “Our new Identity
Governance-as-a-Service is designed to help organizations address the
speed of change by enabling them to innovate how they consume and apply
security. We are proud to partner with SailPoint on this offering and
are looking forward to helping more organizations realize efficient,
flexible and measurable approaches to identity management so they can
become involved in key business initiatives earlier, and be empowered to
seize new business opportunities without introducing undue risk.”

“To be successful, today’s modern enterprises must accommodate the needs
of a broad base of users that includes employees, partners, suppliers,
contractors and more. Each user group has specific systems and asset
needs in the corporate ecosystem, and each requires fast, easy and
entirely mobile access to business assets,” said Harry Gould, vice
president, worldwide channels and alliances, for SailPoint. “Optiv’s new
Identity Governance-as-a-Service, the first identity governance
as-a-Service currently in market that is built on IdentityNow, can be
rapidly deployed allowing users to connect to and use identity
governance services from the cloud. We believe this delivers a unique
business solution to customers, particularly for those organizations
that have been searching for a scalable IGA solutions like ours, and we
are excited to bring it to market with Optiv.”

Optiv’s Identity Governance-as-a-Service can be consumed alone or
combined with other Optiv CaaSTM, advisory or integration
services, and is designed to provide clients with:

  • System Availability – access to platform and features as
    needed; the ability to keep employees mobile and productive by
    minimizing times they are locked out of accounts.
  • Identity Management – unified and centralized password
    management across data center, cloud and mobile resources.
  • Solution Management – the ability to maintain configuration
    control, system documentation and streamline and simplify audit
    process and reporting.
  • Maximized Investment – reduced time and costs of compliance
    efforts with automated access reviews; reduced operation costs with
    decreased help desk costs.
  • Enhanced Security – automated password policy enforcement,
    provisioning and de-provisioning access and periodic review of who has
    access to critical applications.
