Identity Security: A continuous journey in the evolving digital landscape
As the saying goes, the only thing that is constant is change. For many organizations, that change can take many forms. For some, the change is enabling a work from-anywhere workforce. For others, it is meeting new compliance standards or changing how they protect themselves from cyber risk. And for some companies, it is all three simultaneously (or even more.) Whether the change is driven by internal or external forces, businesses are constantly in a state of change and it is imperative that they keep up.
Identity security is not a one-time destination but an ongoing journey.
As organizations navigate this ever-changing world, it is crucial they recognize that their identity security solution has to evolve and change with them as well.
However, to evolve and grow, identity solutions must have the building blocks needed to solve identity problems today and be flexible enough to solve the identity problems of tomorrow. That is why, at SailPoint Navigate 2023, we are announcing key advancements that will help organizations not only meet organizations existing identity needs but also give them the tools to tackle future threats, while they scale their business.
