SailPoint announced AccessIQ, a solution that integrates cloud access management with identity governance and automated provisioning. It provides services such as single sign-on (SSO) 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 allows enterprises to take advantage of cloud access services coupled with improved visibility and oversight over their usage.
AccessIQ provides a tablet-like interface and includes an App Launchpad for one-click, single sign-on to cloud applications from any device, step-up authentication options for added security, as well as self-service application request capabilities, via an app store.
SailPoint AccessIQ, together with SailPoint IdentityIQ, offers end-to-end controls over cloud applications available today. AccessIQ’s integration with IdentityIQ provides a 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.
- 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.
