SailPoint's governance-based solution delivers sustainable identity management across plant environments well as the enterprise, without compromising performance or reliability. At SailPoint, we fully understand the significant cybersecurity and regulatory challenges in this market, and we have the solutions and support to help companies address them head on.
High-stakes Cybersecurity and Risk Management
In this industry, facilities and IT resources are not just extremely valuable assets. They can also be potential conduits for terrorism, sabotage, illegal immigration and other malicious and/or criminal activities. Therefore, they must be stringently secured against risks such as insider threat and other inappropriate access, at all times.
SailPoint IdentityIQ gives utility organizations unprecedented visibility into who has access to what – along with automated detective and preventive controls, based on company-defined policies. IdentityIQ helps organizations identify key user risk factors quickly and easily, eliminate high-risk accounts and track their progress in reducing risk. The solution addresses insider threat with continuous monitoring and remediation throughout the user lifecycle (from on-boarding through role changes and eventual termination). Manual processes are eliminated, saving time and money while enhancing control and accuracy.
Escalating Compliance Mandates
Year in and year out, utility companies grapple with multiple industry regulations and standards such as North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC CIP), CFATS, NIST SP800, MTSA, C-TPAT and ANSI/ISA 99 – in addition to business regulations like Sarbanes-Oxley. In such a heavily regulated industry, ongoing compliance and audit demands put companies under enormous pressure. For many, their existing manual processes or ad-hoc solutions are proving too costly, time-consuming and inaccurate to be sustainable.
SailPoint IdentityIQ helps utility companies get auditably compliant quickly and cost-effectively. Automated access certifications replace costly manual processes with far greater efficiency and accuracy. Real-time policy monitoring provides continuous detection and enforcement of separation-of-duty (SoD) and other access policy violations. And detailed business and technical reports make it easy to provide the documentation and demonstration auditors require.
