The new SSS / SailPoint partnership can help you streamline your identity governance

Identity governance makes it possible to see and control user access to all your applications and data — in the cloud and on-premises. It helps your organisation stay secure and compliant at the same time. As users come on board, change roles, or change projects, access is granted to give them just what they need to get the job done.

SailPoint makes identity governance easy. Access policies let you decide what rules should be followed when determining who does and doesn’t get access, and reports make it easy to manage permissions and demonstrate your compliance to auditors. Best of all, it’s all automated — meaning fewer headaches, huge savings, and a lot more productivity.

For five consecutive years Gartner has recognised SailPoint as a leader in the identity governance space. The newly formed partnership between SSS and SailPoint means we can extend our solutions to you to help you streamline identity governance in your organisation.

Key Features


Grant and remove access as users onboard, change roles, or leave the organisation. This includes your employees, contractors, partners, vendors, and even bots.

Access requests

With self-service, users request access to applications and files. Access is granted instantly if your policy settings allow it, otherwise an IT manager can approve it. Not sure whether to approve? AI-driven recommendations can tell you whether granting access is risky or not.

Access certification

If you’ve got compliance requirements, you know auditors want to see proof that you’re reviewing and certifying appropriate user access. The good news is that you don’t have to manually track this on spreadsheets anymore. SailPoint’s automated process can cut your certification time from months to weeks.


Create rules and policies that determine if, when, and how much access can be granted to a user. You can prevent the risk of granting too much access within systems like SAP, AWS, and Salesforce, and assign multiple people to high-risk or sensitive tasks to reduce the potential for malicious behaviour.

Password management

Empower your users to reset their own passwords. That may not sound exciting, but when you’re locked out and can’t get your work done, self-service password reset from anywhere at any time is a huge benefit. Password management also lets you control security settings like password strength and push out organisation-wide password resets.

File access management

PDF documents and Microsoft Office documents are prime targets for cybercriminals because they often contain sensitive information and are easy to hack. SailPoint helps you identify which files contain sensitive information (like PII and PHI), control who has access to them, and get alerted if there is any strange or suspicious behaviour happening with those files.

AI and machine learning

Work smarter, not harder with AI-driven reporting that helps you make intelligent governance decisions. Machine learning can identify users that may have too much access compared to their peers, and also provide recommendation for identity tasks that can be automated. That means your IT staff will have more time to focus on high-priority projects.
