SailPoint Extends Collaboration Efforts with Microsoft

With today’s tenuous situation it is more critical than ever for organizations to move forward with their digital transformation initiatives. It’s no longer when but how quickly I can get there.  As organizations deal with rapidly deploying business continuity plans, enabling remote workers, quickly provisioning users’ access to new applications and reducing costs, moving to the cloud will be the new norm going forward.  As more companies move much of their business onto Microsoft Azure, being able to secure every single users’ access to anything and everything now housed in the cloud is beyond critical.   

To address these customer concerns, SailPoint is thrilled to announce our continued collaboration efforts with Microsoft by joining the Microsoft One Commercial Partner Program. This builds on our existing integration with Microsoft Azure Active Directory to deliver integrated and secure access to all applications, data and cloud infrastructure like the Azure Cloud Platform. By renewing and extending our collaboration with Microsoft, we are committed to bringing the most secure cloud environment to our customers, pairing Microsoft’s best-in-breed cloud infrastructure with our industry-leading identity governance platform.

As the industry leader, SailPoint Predictive Identity offers the most comprehensive identity governance over all data, applications, and cloud resources for Microsoft platforms including Azure, Azure AD, SharePoint, OneDrive, Office 365, and Outlook. Our AI and ML– driven capabilities recommend if access should be granted or revoked, adapts access models as your organization changes, and enables real-time continuous compliance; helping ensure access is always appropriate and according to policy to everything and anything.

Co-Operative Group provides a great example of how they have integrated SailPoint and Microsoft Azure to help governs their data, applications & users.  As part of Co-op’s cloud-first approach and strategy, deploying SailPoint on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform was a key aspect of the implementation.  They can leverage all the benefits of their identity governance program balanced with the agility, security and efficiencies provided with the Microsoft Azure cloud platform and service.  Implementing SailPoint on Microsoft Azure allows them to more quickly and easily deploy and manage the overall solution without having to buy or maintain the underlying infrastructure.  The combination of SailPoint deployed on Microsoft Azure’s integrated cloud platform meets their security and compliance requirements while reducing costs, time and overall resources.

As a Microsoft One Commercial Partner with Co-Sell ready status, SailPoint and Microsoft teams will align across sales initiatives, inviting greater collaboration on joint customer opportunities. This partnership will help to accelerate the adoption of SailPoint’s best-in-class identity governance platform by enterprises whose business runs on Microsoft’s Azure Cloud Platform. The partnership also ensures a higher degree of security for Microsoft’s cloud platform given the tight integration with SailPoint’s identity governance platform.

And because SailPoint’s IdentityIQ is available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, providing applications and services for use on Azure, SailPoint customers can take advantage of the productive and trusted Azure cloud platform, with streamlined deployment and management.
