The Silicon Review
“With employees in 20 countries, SailPoint offers innovative identity management solutions to help global organizations address the growing threat of data breaches.”
The cyber threat landscape is infinitely more complex and dangerous today than it was even a few years ago. The reason: the number of points of exposure to breaches within organizations’ IT infrastructure is soaring—for larger organizations the number can now exceed a billion. This is a new phenomenon created by the proliferation of data, apps and devices that people use to do their jobs. The digital identity of the individual user is the key that unlocks corporate data and apps, and each identity and each interaction between that individual user, a data source, an application (or between applications) and a device creates another potential entry point for a breach.
Managing this complexity is impossible for IT departments that lack the right technologies. Founded in 2005, SailPoint’s solutions offer IT departments a way to ensure that identities are being holistically managed at scale across and beyond the enterprise. While SailPoint is recognized as the industry leader in IAM, the company still represents less than 10% of the Global 5000. These enterprise companies are facing more regulation and more security threats than ever before, and SailPoint is uniquely qualified to capitalize on this market acceleration.
The Identity Governance Expert
Large companies today have over a billion points of exposure to data breaches, mostly tied to the identity of individual workers. SailPoint is a core security technology for hundreds of global organizations to manage these points of exposure with the industry’s broadest set of identity and access management products. It is a $100 million, profitable company that is growing at an average of 40 percent over the last three years in one of the highest growing segments of the cyber-security market.
In the world of unicorns and tech giants, SailPoint is the exception to the rule. A successful start-up turned profitable industry-leader that has taken minimal funding and consistently delivered on the promises of innovation and customer service is increasingly rare in today’s increasingly overvalued, ego-driven tech scene. SailPoint boot-strapped the company on $21.5M in funding and built a profitable, growing organization that is one of – if not the – largest independent identity companies in the world, with nearly 550 employees serving 530 of the world’s largest companies.
