Column Technologies, Computacenter, Accuvant+FishNet, KPMG First Point Global and PwC Honored as SailPoint’s Top Partners of 2014
AUSTIN, April 28, 2015 – SailPoint, the leader in identity and access management (IAM), today kicked off its third annual customer and partner conference, Navigate, with a sold out crowd of more than 400 attendees. As one the largest gatherings devoted entirely to leveraging IAM to mitigate risk and address growing compliance regulations, Navigate is custom designed for the SailPoint community to learn from and share advice with hundreds of their peers in the industry. During the event, attendees will hear from a slate of SailPoint product experts sharing in-depth training and hands-on demos, customers sharing best practices, and IAM visionaries talking about the future of IAM.
Navigate ‘15’s impressive line-up features acclaimed subject of the book, movie and Broadway play, ‘Catch Me If You Can,’ Frank W. Abagnale, as the keynote speaker. As one of the world’s most respected authorities on the subjects of forgery, fraud, cybercrime and identity theft, Abagnale will set the stage for a series of conversations around how identity is emerging as the critical linchpin at the center of business, security and risk management.
“Navigate is custom-designed to facilitate collaboration and networking across the growing SailPoint community, collectively exploring how we can continue to push the boundaries of IAM in an ever-changing market,” said Mark McClain, CEO and co-founder of SailPoint. “We’re thrilled to kick off this year’s conference off with such a renowned cybercrime expert. Abagnale knows firsthand that punishment of fraud and recovery of stolen funds are so rare that prevention is the most viable strategy for organizations. Today’s high-profile data breaches have organizations looking more closely at their security practices to ensure they will not be in the next headline, and we believe this opening session will set the stage for great conversations this week.”
In conjunction with Navigate, more than 100 global partners joined SailPoint for its annual Global Partner Summit yesterday. During that event, SailPoint recognized its top performing partners from 2014. Accuvant+FishNet was presented with SailPoint’s Spinnaker award, which distinguishes the top reselling partner worldwide. SailPoint’s Armada awards also honored Column Technologies, Inc. as the top reseller partner in North America; Computacenter as the top reseller partner in Europe; KPMG First Point Global as the top reseller partner in Asia-Pacific; and PwC as the top system integrator globally.
“A significant contributor to SailPoint’s continued success in the market is our partner ecosystem, and we’d especially like to thank Column Technologies, Computacenter, Accuvant+FishNet, KPMG First Point Global and PwC for their dedication and hard work over the last year,” said Kevin Cunningham, president and co-founder of SailPoint. “Together with our partners, we are able to deliver the industry’s best IAM solutions to the market while ensuring the ongoing success of our customers.
