BeyondTrust and SailPoint Join Forces to Unite Security and Identity of Privileged Users


December 21st, 2015

Unified PAM and IAM Solutions Will Extend User-Specific Enforcement of Policies, Security Requirements and Compliance Processes

PHOENIX, December 21, 2015 – BeyondTrust®, a global cyber security company that believes preventing data breaches requires the right visibility to enable control over internal and external risks, today announced that it is collaborating with SailPoint as an inaugural member of its Identity+ Alliance. Designed to accelerate and enhance integration with operational and security infrastructures, SailPoint has opened its Identity Governance and Administration platform, IdentityIQ™, to select technology partners, including BeyondTrust.

BeyondTrust will integrate its PowerBroker Privileged Account Management (PAM) platform, including Retina Vulnerability Management technology with IdentityIQ, providing customers with a powerful best-of-breed solution that will:

  • Increase visibility into user, application and asset interaction with behavioral analytics to track potential malicious activity from insider and external threats
  • Enhance efficiency around regulatory compliance reporting by providing insight into identity activities and account utilization
  • Provide visibility into provisioning applications to minimize risk and potential breaches

“Companies continue to seek the ability to answer the fundamental questions of ‘who you are’, ‘what you have access to’, and ‘how that access is being used’ as it relates to anyone who comes on to their network, be it employees, contractors or partners,” said Kevin Hickey, President and CEO, BeyondTrust. “By integrating the most advanced Privileged Account Management system with SailPoint’s market-leading IAM platform, enterprises will now have the ability to confidently answer those questions with far greater levels of operational efficiency and confidence.”

According to the recent (October 8, 2015) report from Gartner, “Twelve Best Practices for Privileged Access Management” (authored by Anmol Singh and Felix Gaehtgens), it was emphasized that organizations should “establish privileged access governance by extending identity governance controls, such as automated provisioning, entitlements cataloguing and access certification, to privileged accounts and administrator access.” BeyondTrust, who is mentioned in the report, believes this will be an important differentiator for SailPoint and BeyondTrust customers.

Further, at the Gartner IAM Summit last week in Las Vegas, our solution provider panel  session titled, “Practical Advice: How to Add Privileged Account Management to your Enterprise IAM Strategy” was met with overwhelming attendance and response.

Hickey adds, “Many of the questions and concerns expressed by the session’s attendees were based on how they are starting to tackle more PAM and IAM projects together across security and infrastructure teams. We believe the timing is right for this integration partnership with SailPoint as a critical success factor for customers to ensure they have flexibility in selecting their best of breed IAM and PAM partners, and not be locked into a closed framework that insufficiently attempts to cover both.”

“We’re honored to have BeyondTrust as an inaugural member of the Identity+ Alliance,” said Joe Gottlieb, SVP of Corporate Development at SailPoint. “The Identity+ Alliance was designed to create partnerships that make customers more Identity-aware in order to increase effectiveness of security and risk mitigation efforts. Combining the power of IdentityIQ and BeyondTrust’s privileged access management and vulnerability management solutions empowers IT with the user-context to conduct regular audits of high-risk accounts, automatically remediate any policy violations and monitor certification controls.”
