Government identity security

Achieve your identity security mission

Meet and exceed your agency’s Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) objectives by improving visibility and securing access to government data no matter where it lives.


Modernize your identity security program

Federal, state, and local agencies must secure against emerging cybersecurity challenges by protecting access to sensitive data, applications, and systems. This requires a cybersecurity approach that includes strong identity governance and follows the Identity Lifecycle Management (ILM) playbook.

Even with limited budgets and a shortage of trained cybersecurity personnel, government agencies can easily verify that user access is authorized, secure, and compliant. SailPoint identity security is the foundation for digital modernization and helps organizations increase visibility, better manage digital identities, and reduce security threats.

  • Automate the discovery, management, and control of all user access
  • Migrate to the cloud with increased visibility across complex environments
  • Advance zero trust with identity security to meet your mission
