LONDON (GARTNER IAM SUMMIT), March 13, 2012 – SailPoint, the leading provider of governance-based identity management solutions, continues its steady global expansion and has signed more than a dozen of Europe’s largest companies as customers in the last six months. SailPoint’s European customer base now includes prestigious companies such as: Aviva, Nordea, Rabobank International, Sanofi-Aventis Group, Societe Generale, Swedbank, Tesco Bank and UBS, among others. To support this growth, SailPoint also announced it has opened a Centre of Excellence in Germany as well as a development center in Israel.
Some of the world’s largest companies rely upon SailPoint IdentityIQ to help proactively mitigate risk, reduce IT costs, and ensure compliance associated with user access controls. SailPoint’s award-winning governance-based identity management solution provides enterprises with full visibility into their identity data, and enables them to automate the business processes associated with user access controls while ensuring the company’s corporate policies are enforced.
“At Rabobank, we needed a solution to better address stringent compliance requirements and manage security risk associated with user access,” said Jethro Cornelissen, global head of security operations for Rabobank International. “SailPoint IdentityIQ will allow us to move from a manual process that provided fragmented visibility into our identity controls to a fully automated process that provides full visibility into and control over our enterprise identity data. The product has been received enthusiastically by business users and other security units who immediately ask, ‘When can we have it?’ when they see the information it can provide.”
SailPoint’s customers represent a who’s who list of the world’s largest companies, all of whom require an identity management solution that can scale to support large global deployments. In order to prove that IdentityIQ could meet and exceed the performance and scalability metrics of these customers, SailPoint recently conducted a series of benchmark tests, sponsored by two of the world’s largest financial services companies. During the testing, IdentityIQ demonstrated the ability to support an environment of thousands of applications while aggregating massive amounts of identity data: more than 100,000 users, millions of accounts and more than 10 million entitlements.
