Listen to the webinar: The Changing Landscape of Identity Security

Hear thought leaders discuss the threat landscape, NIST guidance, and a need for lifecycle automation within an identity ecosystem.


Modernize your identity security program

Federal agencies, critical infrastructure, and the defense industrial base must secure against emerging cyber threats by governing access to sensitive applications, systems, and data. This requires a cybersecurity approach that includes a strong foundation in identity security to meet agency modernization and objectives set in regulations, directives, and guidance.

SailPoint provides visibility, compliance, and control for all user access by helping agencies and mission partners align to NIST SP 800-53 Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations, NIST SP 800-63 Digital Identity Guidelines, and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.

Alleviate your IT burden and ensure compliance by managing and securing all identities with intelligent automation. SailPoint identity security is the foundation for digital modernization and helps agencies gain efficiencies and reduce risk.

  • Improve identity security management with a centralized view of all identities
  • Safely migrate to the cloud with increased visibility across complex environments
  • Leverage automation for the discovery, management, and control of all user access
  • Advance zero trust with identity security to meet your mission
  • Identify and manage anomalous access for reduced risk
  • Demonstrate proof of compliance with real-time access reports

SailPoint is one of 18 technology vendors that will work with the NCCoE to demonstrate several approaches to implementing zero trust architectures, which will be designed and deployed according to the concepts and tenets documented in NIST’s Zero Trust Architecture special publication (SP 800-207). For more information, read our blog or visit NIST’s page: Implementing a Zero Trust Architecture

FICAM stands for Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) Architecture. FICAM is the federal government’s enterprise approach to design, plan, and execute common ICAM processes. The FICAM Architecture is a framework for an agency to use in ICAM program and solution roadmap planning. The FICAM Architecture focuses on enterprise identity processes, practices, policies, and information security disciplines. learn more at IDManagement.gov.

Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) Strategy encompasses the full range of activities related to the creation of digital identities and maintenance of associated attributes, credential issuance for person/non-person entities, authentication using the credentials, and making access management control decisions based on authenticated identities and associated attributes. learn more at defense.gov.

The Identity Lifecycle Management Working Group of the Federal Chief Information Security Officer Council ICAM Subcommittee developed this playbook to help federal agencies understand and plan identity lifecycle management initiatives. learn more at IDmanagement.gov.
