Audit, tax, and advisory firm, KPMG, and SailPoint, an identity and access management firm, today announced an alliance that will provide information protection solutions to help clients manage and protect their critical information.

SailPoint provides integrated identity and access management (IAM) solutions for compliance, provisioning, password management, and access management—delivered either on-premises (IdentityIQ) or as a cloud–based service (IdentityNow). The alliance combines SailPoint’s next-generation IAM solutions with KPMG’s identity management services to help clients safeguard valuable data and applications residing in datacenters, on mobile devices, and in the cloud.

Additional potential benefits include the ability to reduce risk, address compliance requirements, enhance user experiences, streamline business process controls and increase operational efficiencies and reduce costs, while enhancing the customer experience to expand revenue opportunities.
