Global Excellence Award Recognizes SailPoint’s Innovation in Identity Governance and Provisioning

AUSTIN, March 3, 2011 – Info Security Products Guide has named SailPoint the “Innovative Company of the Year” in security as part of the 2011 Global Excellence Awards program. The award, announced at RSA Conference 2011, recognizes a company that has delivered significant innovation in the market in the past year. SailPoint was chosen based on the company’s expansion into provisioning earlier in 2010, which introduced an innovative new governance-based approach to user access control.

SailPoint’s new provisioning capabilities built on the company’s early innovations in identity governance and leveraged its founders’ provisioning heritage at Waveset Technologies. SailPoint IdentityIQ now features end-to-end provisioning capabilities and can automate the entire user access request and fulfillment process. The industry’s first governance-based provisioning solution, IdentityIQ enables organizations to simplify implementations, reduce costs and build compliance into provisioning business processes.

“Being named Innovative Security Company of the Year validates the strong momentum that we’ve gained in identity governance, as well as the market need for a new approach to provisioning,” said Kevin Cunningham, president and cofounder of SailPoint. “By taking a business-centric, governance-based approach to provisioning, IdentityIQ sets the bar for ease of use and fast time to value. We have the team and product strategy in place to continue driving innovation and delivering leading-edge technology in identity management.”

The Info Security Products Guide 2011 Global Excellence Award adds to SailPoint’s ever-increasing list of awards for its corporate successes and innovation with IdentityIQ. In 2010 alone, the company was named a “2010 Red Herring 100 finalist” based on its financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management and execution of strategy. SailPoint IdentityIQ was also recognized in 2010 for product innovation by two publications: the product won CSO Magazine’s “Emerging Solutions Demo” and was featured in eWEEK’s “Products to Watch in 2010.”
