IdentityIQ Extends Identity Governance to the Cloud, Allowing Companies to Centrally Manage User Access Across All IT Environments
AUSTIN, March 29, 2011 - While many companies are deploying software as a service (SaaS) applications and have selectively deployed enterprise applications in private clouds, very few have moved mission-critical applications to the public cloud. In fact, a recent SailPoint survey of Global 1000 showed that only 7% of respondents have moved compliance-relevant applications to the public cloud; security and compliance issues were the primary inhibitors to cloud adoption.
SailPoint is helping companies address these compliance and security barriers with a new solution, the Cloud Identity Bridge, which seamlessly extends the identity management capabilities of SailPoint IdentityIQ to all applications deployed in cloud environments. With Cloud Identity Bridge, SailPoint is removing key roadblocks to cloud adoption by enabling organizations to manage identities and access privileges in the cloud in the same manner that they govern them for applications in the datacenter.
