A Conversation with SailPoint & Nelnet

Authored by Katherine Cola

Nelnet, Inc. is a student loan servicing company specializing in consumer finance, telecommunications, and K-12 and higher education. With offices around the globe and 6,500+ associates, Nelnet has built a robust identity security program.

Nelnet’s identity program set out to solve challenges around user onboarding, offboarding, and access certification. Through automation, Nelnet was able to ensure accurate and consistent data being transmitted between systems. And with data protection regulations rapidly evolving, they required a tool that provided important context, such as the appropriateness of access, for effective user access reviews and reporting.
