Annual Identity Governance Conference Draws Sold Out Crowd of Security Professionals

AUSTIN, June 13, 2017 – SailPoint, the leader in enterprise identity management, today welcomed its largest audience ever at the annual identity governance conference, Navigate ’17, with a sold out crowd of customers, prospects and partners. This year’s conference agenda includes keynote addresses from Brian Krebs, a well-known investigative cybercrime reporter and General Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA and NSA. Conference attendees will also hear from SailPoint customers including Cargill, Humana, Manulife, Nielsen, Orrstown Bank, University of Utah, Weight Watchers and Western Union.

As a new addition to Navigate ’17, SailPoint is honoring customers that exemplify the company’s core values, which are integral to the company’s success and by extension, its customers. Award recipients include:

  • Innovation Award: Norwich University is an identity visionary who harnesses the power of identity to stay ahead of the constantly transforming IT landscape, ultimately making a significant impact on the university’s bottom line with their cloud-based identity governance program.
  • Individual Award: Paul De Graaff, head of security and compliance for Weight Watchers, is an identity evangelist who recognizes the need to put identity at the center of the company’s IT security strategy and shares that vision with his peers in security.

Navigate ‘17 will deliver insightful content for a diverse group of attendees working in identity management across the world’s leading industries. This year’s agenda also includes keynote addresses that cover the future of identity management and how SailPoint is driving innovation in the industry around cloud-based identity governance, identity analytics and the intersection of identity governance and privileged account management. The conference will feature after-hours activities including the 2nd Annual Women in Identity Dinner where female customers, partners and employees will gather to discuss issues specific to women in the identity industry, including a panel with SailPoint leaders and speakers from GirlStart, Providence Health, and UPS. Navigate ’17 will culminate with the annual and much-anticipated closing reception, and this year’s theme will celebrate all things Austin with NavigATX.

 “We look forward to Navigate each year because it’s a great opportunity for our SailPoint team to engage in interesting conversations, fostering connections with customers and partners who are innovating in identity all over the world,” said Mark McClain, CEO and co-founder of SailPoint. “At SailPoint, we believe identity is not just an IT security issue, but a business enabler, driven by IT. Much of this years’ conference focuses on how customers can harness the power of identity for their own organization. Navigate ’17 gives attendees a chance to explore the latest innovations in identity while learning from their peers about how they are using identity to their advantage, addressing unique business challenges and leading the charge in their respective industries.”

Navigate ‘17 will reach SailPoint’s customers and partners around the globe with Navigate Australia in Sydney on August 23 and Navigate Europe in Amsterdam on October 18-20. More information on both conferences can be found at
