Everyone loves a better together story! Think mac and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, Simon and Garfunkel…I’m sure you have your own personal favorite. To put this in perspective from a technology standpoint, better together means enabling seamless, native, future proofed integration. The right integrations create a powerful IT environment that is greater than the sum of its parts. This blog discusses the importance of BeyondTrust and SailPoint's better together approach to identity security.
How can users benefit from an integrated IT experience?
An integrated or eco-system experience is one in which IT leaders get more out of their current investments using a best-of-breed approach, all while helping the organization deliver a next generation, cloud-based, digital transformation and solving their most complex IT and security challenges. I always love talking about a 1 + 1 = 3 benefit of partnering and integrations.
If your environment is not integrated, then your security stack could be underutilized or siloed, creating blind spots that impact business continuity.
What do IT integration, cloud computing, and Zero Trust have in common?
Identity security is a great example of the 1 + 1 = 3 benefit, especially when the goal is an overall Zero Trust model. Zero Trust, as we know is not a single product or solution; it’s a team approach with key solutions all natively integrated and working together to ensure the right users are accessing the right applications and the right data.
The combined solution offering of BeyondTrust Intelligent Identity and Access Security + SailPoint Identity Security Solutions is a perfect example of this better together story.
As organizations are moving to the cloud at a faster pace than ever before, a cloud-first strategy is no longer a future plan; it is a business imperative. As they make this transition, identity is the critical key to successful access management and governance. They want out-of-the-box integrations that don’t require additional services to connect. This enables enterprises to focus on building value for their business, rather than becoming bogged down with complex, costly, and time-consuming integration implementations.
How BeyondTrust and SailPoint embody the better together message
The recent announcement between BeyondTrust and SailPoint is a great example of how organizations can now gain the best of all worlds to address these challenges.
BeyondTrust has achieved a certified integration for SailPoint’s IdentityNow, the SailPoint SaaS platform. The combined solution enables customers to extend their investment in cloud technologies with an increase in manageability and security controls.
This combined BeyondTrust Password Safe and SailPoint Identity Security Cloud provides a hyper-scalable approach to managing privileged access for many vital business processes, including access requests, access certifications, provisioning, search and analytics, and more.
But seeing this better together approach is truly believing:
Now, organizations can achieve an automated approach to provisioning the right access rights to the right users while reducing tedious and time-consuming manual tasks. This allows admins to focus on more productive projects, eliminating the risk associated with human errors and delays. The result is that enterprises can maintain a high level of user productivity, compliance, and security.
