Nov 07, 2007 (10:11 AM EST)


AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Identity risk management software pioneer SailPoint Technologies, Inc. today announced the formation of the SailPoint Alliance Network, a global affiliation of strategic implementation and technology partners focused on delivering services and solutions around SailPoint's Compliance IQ software. The latest companies to join the partnership network include First Point Global of Australia and KOGIT Enterprise Identity Management GmbH of Germany, premiere consulting and systems integration firms for international identity management markets. As SailPoint channel partners, First Point Global and KOGIT will resell SailPoint products internationally. They join SailPoint's current partner roster of leading firms Beacon, Control Solutions, CPSG, Iditarod and Mycroft.

"Controlling user access in an increasingly complex, regulated and threatening environment is no short order for today's Global 1000 -- especially when coupled with the pressure to streamline operations and contain costs," said John Havers, chief executive officer, First Point Global. "Identity risk management is the key to solving this challenge, and SailPoint's technology provides an automated, efficient way to identify, prioritize and address serious risks to systems and data."

"As in the U.S., the regulatory environment facing today's European enterprise community -- especially around data privacy -- requires an increasingly watchful security posture that includes a comprehensive strategy for controlling and auditing user access," said Gerald Kaufhold, managing director of KOGIT. "SailPoint's innovative identity risk management solution provides us with tools to help organizations gain control over user access to critical systems and reduce the risks of poor access control."

The SailPoint Alliance Network unites the capabilities of Compliance IQ, SailPoint's breakthrough identity risk management software, with complementary products and services from leading companies that specialize in identity management. The combination creates easily deployed and closely integrated identity intelligence solutions that reduce the complexity, costs and risks associated with controlling and managing user access and identity information.

"Capable partners are critical to meeting the growing demand we're seeing in this market," said Dave Hendrix, vice president of client and partner services for SailPoint. "Each of our partners is recognized as a leader with proven services and solutions in the identity management market. Together, we are committed to delivering practical solutions and long-term customer success."
