SailPoint, a provider of identity management solutions, has announced the launch of SailPoint AccessIQ, a new solution that seamlessly integrates cloud access management with rich identity governance and automated provisioning.

AccessIQ provides convenient, easy-to-use services such as single sign-on and self-service access request, while ensuring that cloud applications are managed within the same identity governance framework used for on-premises applications. Delivered as a cloud service, AccessIQ deploys quickly and allows enterprises to immediately take advantage of convenient cloud access services coupled with improved visibility and oversight over their usage.

Designed for business users looking for a more flexible and agile way to address business challenges, AccessIQ provides an intuitive, tablet-like interface to deliver services that improve productivity and user satisfaction. AccessIQ includes an intuitive App Launchpad for one-click, single sign-on to cloud applications from any device, step-up authentication options for added security, as well as simple self-service application request capabilities, via an easy-to-use App Store. This empowers business users to safely use cloud applications for business or mixed-use purposes, with approvals and provisioning handled automatically based on organizational roles and security policies.

AccessIQ's integration with IdentityIQ provides an enterprise-grade governance platform for managing identities and applications in the cloud, with policy, role, and risk models unified with on-premises application identity management.

To extend governance to applications outside the control of IT, AccessIQ provides:

  • Full visibility of user sign-on activity and account usage, enabling business unit procured applications and SaaS applications procured by individuals to be managed as part of an enterprise-wide identity governance strategy;
  • A flexible, risk-based approach to cloud application identities so IT organizations can tailor how they manage and control those applications without locking down the environment and getting in the way of the business; and
  • Full audit reporting on application usage and “who has access to what” to demonstrate compliance and control monthly subscription expenses by promptly deprovisioning unused or unauthorized cloud application accounts.
