How Our New Product Suites Are Setting the Standard for Identity Security

People tend to want what they need. This is as true for technology solutions as it is for everything else. But while the truism may sound simple in theory, the unfortunate truth is that people don’t always know what they need. Often, customers need to see for themselves the positive outcomes that stem from implementing a solution before they understand why it is necessary.

Back in 2020, I wrote that identity security was a business essential—but one that not enough organizations understood. Anticipating that identity security was more “essential” than ever, I noticed that many companies were only scratching the surface of identity security, focused only on granting access. That may have been good enough at the time, but today the stakes have never been higher when it comes to enterprise security. “Good enough” is no longer enough.

Today’s Threats Demand New Solutions

Enterprises face cyber threats daily, and breaches incur costs that are both financial and reputational—and in many cases, it has cost executives their careers. It’s no mystery where those breaches come from: according to a recent Identity Defined Security (IDSA) report, approximately 95% of security breaches are identity-related. Today’s enterprises cannot afford to kick the can down the road any further. Strong identity security is no longer a “nice to have” solution. It is essential. The SailPoint Identity Security Cloud suites package, unveiled earlier today, is exactly what is needed to secure the modern enterprise fully—just as we anticipated two years ago.

Because, look—we’re the leader in identity security. We’ve implemented thousands upon thousands of identity security programs for some of the most complex, sophisticated enterprises worldwide—from Humana and Samsung Biologics to Toyota Motor Europe and Western Union. We know what the standard for cybersecurity looks like today. It only makes sense for us to package our identity security offerings in a way that makes it foolproof for our customers—following through on meeting their needs by the tried-and-true approach of listening and then executing, guiding the path for true (and comprehensive) identity security.

One side benefit of streamlining our offerings is the fact that it will now be easier than ever for customers to add new solutions from us or our network of partners. All of this sounds like a win-win to me, but there are other reasons this approach seemed like the obvious course of action to us.  For starters, let’s take a look at the outcomes. Both the SailPoint Identity Security Cloud Business and SailPoint Identity Security Cloud Business Plus include features that lead to outcomes like:

Achieving time-to-value on access certifications from one year to one month
Automating new user access from 14 hours to 2.5 minutes
Deprovisioning worker accounts from 30+ days to minutes, resulting in $800k in savings
Fulfilling self-service requests: 62,000 requests are fulfilled automatically with new suites packaging, resulting in zero help desk calls and ~$1 million annual cost savings
Upleveling role modeling that used to take days to implement common access and birthright roles, all discoverable within minutes

No matter which option our customers choose, these outcomes come standard. We’ve packaged identity security for our customers, providing an unshakable identity security foundation for any organization. This not only makes for an easy purchase decision but easier consumption—and, from there, immediate ROI and cost savings.

I am proud of the work the SailPoint crew has put in to get this accomplished. I’ve worked closely with every single person on our team to make sure SailPoint is delivering a premium identity security solution to meet security challenges head on and to make our customer look like the hero in their security organization. We want our customers to know that SailPoint will be with them on every step of their identity security journey.

SailPoint will deliver on those promises every time. 2022 is off to a great start for the SailPoint product, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for our customers and our crew. We are setting the standard for identity security today and tomorrow.
