SailPoint Drives Adoption of SCIM Standard

SailPoint Cloud Experts to Speak at Cloud Identity Summit and Gartner Catalyst

AUSTIN, July 8, 2013 – As the rapid adoption of cloud continues, the SCIM (System for Cross-domain Identity Management) standard is becoming a critical component in addressing identity management in the cloud, and is designed to make managing user identities in cloud-based applications and services easier. SailPoint recognizes the importance of helping enterprises adapt and handle new challenges stemming from managing cloud-based applications, and continues to be an advocate for the adoption of the emerging SCIM standard (SailPoint was a primary author of the SCIM 1.0 specification).

In fact, SailPoint will be participating in the SCIM Interop at today’s Cloud identity Summit. During the session, the company will showcase how to utilize SCIM for provisioning and governing access to cloud-based applications like Salesforce and Google. This is the fourth SCIM interoperability event that SailPoint has participated in.

In addition to the Interop, in July SailPoint experts will discuss the ongoing development of SCIM and how IAM must evolve to address new risks presented by the mass adoption of cloud-based applications.
