Gartner names SailPoint Leader in identity governance for the sixth time

FYI, this story is more than a year old

Identity governance solutions provider SailPoint announced it has once again been named a Leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration.

After conducting a company and product evaluation of SailPoint's identity platform, SailPoint was recognised by Gartner as a Leader, positioned furthest for completeness of vision and highest for ability to execute for IGA.

“Organisations today look nothing like they did even just a couple of years ago. Users now encompass both human and non-human users; applications, data and infrastructure are no longer purely on-premise but largely live in the cloud today. These changes have been driven by the massive digital transformation underway, ” says SailPoint chief product officer Paul Trulove.

“For much the same reason, identity governance today does not look like it once did.

“Our customers come to us because we stay in lock step with their needs, working to develop solutions that solve real business problems,” Trulove says.

“For example, we heard our customers asking for better ways to govern access to sensitive data held in files and folders and delivered File Access Manager to help them do that in the context of their identity programme.

“When the need for a more intelligent and autonomous identity programme emerged to tackle the growing complexity of hybrid IT environments, we delivered a new approach to identity with SailPoint Predictive Identity.

SailPoint's Identity Platform aims to enable organisations of all sizes to drive a comprehensive approach to identity, one that governs all users, applications and data; governs deep across both cloud and on-premises infrastructures and governs smart, creating an AI-driven approach to identity governance.

The company has been positioned as a Leader in every Gartner Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration that has been published.
