AUSTIN, November 30, 2015 – SailPoint, today announced that for the third consecutive year, the company has been named to Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™. With hundreds of global customers and more than 500 employees around the globe, SailPoint is the only identity and access management (IAM) vendor to rank on the list for three consecutive years. Verified by Deloitte, SailPoint’s impressive 187% growth rate propelled the company to this year’s list.
“With a history of record growth and profitability, our financial strength ensures we have the resources necessary to support our expanding international footprint,” said Mark McClain, CEO and cofounder of SailPoint. “We have always believed that our success is tied directly to our customer successes, and we remain focused on ensuring they continue to see value from their growing IAM deployments. We’re also very committed to building the industry’s strongest team of IAM experts across our employee and partner base.”
Today’s biggest data breaches are targeting the identities of employees, contractors and partners. In many cases, hackers can exploit a legitimate identity without the organization knowing until it’s too late. In order to help customers prevent or minimize this type of data breach tied directly to insiders, SailPoint’s solutions provide a user-centric approach to security that allows organizations to monitor “who has access to what” data, as well as determining “should they have that access?” SailPoint is at the forefront of helping companies protect themselves from data breaches, which has propelled its growth in the market.
This recognition builds on a string of awards SailPoint has received in 2015. In June, SailPoint’s CEO Mark McClain and President Kevin Cunningham were named the Ernst & Young “Entrepreneurs of the Year” for the Central Texas region. The award recognized their long history of excellence in leadership and personal commitment to their company, employees and community, as well as a deep-seeded motivation to drive the IAM industry forward. Frost & Sullivan also named SailPoint the “2015 Global Identity and Access Management Entrepreneurial Company of the Year,” based on the company’s high growth, global customer adoption and ongoing efforts to drive innovation in the market.
