In today’s increasingly technology enabled world, managing digital identity is a foundational tenant of a strong cybersecurity program. An organization’s understanding of users (both internal and external) and their digital representation is both a business enabler and a means to reducing risk.

The primary function of identity and access management (IAM) solutions is to reduce the risk of inappropriate access by managing the lifecycle of digital identities and controlling access to critical information assets based on defined access policies and business need.

KPMG LLP (KPMG) helps large, complex organizations with a wide variety of IAM services spanning assessment, strategy, implementation, and managed services.

Our experience and collaborative innovation in delivering SailPoint projects has produced numerous accelerators that help organizations meet various challenges in delivering a secure, scalable and operational IAM platform.

Some of these accelerators include:

  • Implementation accelerators, such as a well-defined and repeatable business application onboarding factory model and an IAM platform migration tool to SailPoint Idenity IQ
  • Risk and compliance accelerators, such as enhanced integrations of SailPoint with CyberArk allowing for more granular access certifications of privileged accounts in addition to enabling easy rotation of credentials for onboarded SailPoint applications
  • Industry-specific accelerators, such as the enhanced EPIC SailPoint connector.

KPMG is a committed and long-standing SailPoint alliance partner, achieving multiple awards for both Global Alliance and Americas Partner of the Year as well as Sailpoint 2020 Delivery Armiral award.
