sallie-mae-streamlined-compliance-and-risk-mitigation

Sallie Mae, the US’s leading saving, planning, and paying for college company, faced spiraling compliance costs due to their many service offerings to consumers in addition to its role as a federal contractor. With SailPoint, they have automated their processes while improving the company’s overall IT risk and compliance posture.

The Process:

The volume of regulations with which Sallie Mae must comply indicated the company needed to automate their processes in order to keep up-to-date with access certifications, while also implementing role-based access control and gaining better visibility and risk management.

Goals:
  • Automate cumbersome, manual procedures
  • Reduce the cost and frustration associated with access certifications
  • Bring visibility and oversight to the IAM program
How Identity
Helped:

Within 6 months of leveraging the power of identity with SailPoint, Sallie Mae was able to completely restructure its compliance efforts to be more efficient, automated and cost-effective. This, in turn, has helped the company further its security efforts with improved insight to users’ access and pave the way for future improvements, such as self-service access requests.

“Compliance is a never-ending chore. By using SailPoint to automate it, we are saving a significant amount of time and money – and improving accuracy.”
