Nelnet embraces AI-driven identity security

Nelnet, Inc. is a student loan servicing company headquartered in Lincoln, Nebraska, with offices around the globe and over 6,500 employees. In addition to student loans, Nelnet is also a professional services company, consumer loan originator and servicer, payment processor, telecommunications innovator, and K-12 and higher education expert


Nelnet initially set out to solve challenges around automation and compliance, specifically onboarding and off-boarding associates and enforcing effective access review processes. With those goals met, they are now working with AI-driven Identity Security for simplified role management and informed decision support for certification recommendations


Nelnet has established a successful identity security program with greater automation, stronger compliance, and increased visibility. AI-driven Identity Security is helping them understand more clearly what access looks like in their organization and ensuring the right access at the right times for the right people.

To someone who is on the fence about whether or not their organization should partner with SailPoint, I would say SailPoint is a clear leader with the tools offered in the identity space, but they have not sat back and been content with that success. SailPoint’s drive to make the industry better by looking to the future and listening to customers and partners will keep them as a leader and a partner for my team for many years to come.
