SailPoint and VMware Partner to Deliver Identity Governance to Modern Mobile Workforces

AUSTIN, September 12, 2017 – SailPoint, the leader in enterprise identity management, today announced an extension of the company’s existing partnership with VMware to deliver comprehensive identity governance to the VMware Workspace ONE™ digital workspace platform powered by VMware AirWatch® technology. Through this partnership, SailPoint will extend its existing integration with AirWatch technology to support a unified and global workforce while also supporting VMware’s digital workspace strategy.

“Adopting cloud and mobile technologies securely is critical to building a successful digital workspace strategy. The challenge is how to manage access to this modern workspace as employees come and go and new devices and technologies continually enter the workplace,” said Joe Gottlieb, Senior Vice President, Corporate Development for SailPoint. “Enterprises need to extend their identity governance program to include this growing number of endpoints and platforms to securely accelerate their digital transformation journey. By integrating SailPoint’s open identity platform with VMware Workspace ONE, we’re delivering a unified approach to governing today’s global and mobile workforce to mutual customers.”

Enterprise IT departments can leverage Workspace ONE to manage all endpoints within an organization. Tasks such as onboarding a new employee with all applications and devices can be accomplished quickly without tickets or help desk calls. SailPoint’s identity governance controls enable each user with the specific resources they need to successfully do their job. More importantly, as employees change roles or leave the company, SailPoint identity governance can trigger automated processes so mobile devices are either updated with new and applicable resources or completely wiped if an employee leaves the company.

“Employees today expect to be able to work from anywhere and from any device without hindrance,” said Ashish Jain, vice president of product management, End-User Computing, VMware. “We built Workspace ONE to give businesses the agility and security that is critical to delivering a digital workspace. Through this partnership with SailPoint, our mutual customers can deploy their preferred identity governance layer needed to securely and confidently accelerate their digital transformation strategy across their entire hybrid IT environment.”

“This partnership underscores the importance of the identity-aware infrastructure and the value of our open identity platform, which is critical to companies as they evolve into an increasingly digital workplace,” continued Gottlieb. “Our open identity approach provides a vendor-neutral platform for interoperability with other technology vendors like VMware, and is driven by industry need. This platform approach gives enterprises a higher return on their identity governance investment, expanding its reach to more systems, enabling more identity-aware security policies and streamlining identity-specific IT operations. This partnership will enable our mutual customers to embrace a more efficient mobile workforce while safeguarding important corporate resources.”
