CSO Magazine Names SailPoint Winner of the 2010 Emerging Solution Demo

AUSTIN, October 12, 2010 – SailPoint continues its aggressive growth trajectory, having recently added several global companies to its customer roster, includingAviva, Computershare and Tesco Bank. In 2010, the company has doubled its international customer base, adding some of the largest companies in France, Belgium, the United Kingdom and Australia. SailPoint’s customer list now spans a dozen vertical markets and represents a “who’s who” of the Global 2000. More than 60% of them rank in the Global 500, including the world’s largest banks, insurance providers, consumer brands and manufacturers.

“Listening to our customers and using their feedback to map our identity governance solutions to their business requirements has fueled our growth,” said Kevin Cunningham, SailPoint president and cofounder. “That unmatched customer commitment, coupled with SailPoint’s ability to deliver new product capabilities to market quickly, generates partner and customer advocates who are helping to spread the word about SailPoint IdentityIQ. Over the past year, SailPoint completed one of the world’s largest deployments of identity governance, and we’re rolling out similarly sized global projects on a regular basis now.”

SailPoint also recently announced a global reseller agreement with BMC Software. The agreement allows SailPoint’s IdentityIQ™ Compliance Manager, which has been tightly integrated with BMC’s Business Service Management products, to be sold by BMC and its resellers around the world. The partnership gives BMC’s enterprise customers access to the industry’s leading identity governance solution, helping them achieve regulatory compliance with greater efficiency, effectiveness, and lower cost of ownership.

In addition to SailPoint’s corporate momentum, the company’s identity management product suite continues to garner industry accolades. During the CSO Security Standard conference in September, SailPoint won the Emerging Solutions Demo for its unique, governance-based approach to provisioning. SailPoint IdentityIQ was recognized for the product’s innovation and ability to deliver an immediate and measurable impact for the companies using it. “The judges noted that SailPoint addresses a huge pain point for enterprises and applauded the solution’s business-centric approach,” said Derek Slater, Editor in Chief of CSO.
