SailPoint | January 13, 2023
On January 12, 2023, SailPoint Technologies, Inc., a leading identity security enterprise, announced the acquisition of SecZetta, a prominent third-party identity risk solutions provider. With around half of today's firms comprising non-employees, organizations need to factor this rising group of identities into their identity security strategies.
By incorporating SecZetta, SailPoint will be able to expand its capabilities to assist businesses in gaining greater visibility into all types of identities, including both employee and non-employee identities, ranging from third-party contractors to temporary workers, and all this from a single, market-leading identity security platform. This acquisition will provide businesses with the centralized approach needed as well as the required identity verification to thoroughly validate non-employee identities across their organizations.
SailPoint and SecZetta have a long-established partnership, and once SecZetta's solutions get fully integrated into SailPoint's Identity Security Cloud platform, SailPoint will deliver a unified platform to its customers, providing context-rich identity information with an appropriate level of intelligence answering the "who should have access to what," "why," and "when" questions for this unique, often under-secured set of identities.
The addition of SecZetta will allow SailPoint to assist businesses with identity consolidation efforts, combining and arranging workforce data across authoritative sources into a consolidated identity repository. This identity intelligence will then be made available as a packaged offering within the identity security cloud platform in order to provide a more extensive identity security that provides the critical layer of risk management and governance required across employee and non-employee identities from a single platform.
SailPoint is a leading identity security provider for modern enterprises. Through automating the administration and control of access by using the power of machine learning and AI, it delivers just the required to the right identities and technology resources at the appropriate time, matching the velocity, scale and environmental needs of today's cloud-oriented enterprise.

By adding Active Defense, Acalvio's ITDR solution transforms the environment not only to detect and repel cyber assaults but also to collect threat information to get a deeper understanding of the adversary and better train future defenders.
"Modern identity threats can subvert traditional identity and access management (IAM) preventive controls, such as multi-factor authentication (MFA). This makes Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR) a top cybersecurity priority for 2022 and beyond."
According to October 2022 research from Gartner
Acalvio's patent-protected, unique, and comprehensive ITDR solution is the foundation for building and maintaining a robust zero-trust security model. It enhances identity protection in three important ways
Active Defense against malicious activity: ShadowPlex Advanced Threat Defense from Acalvio generates a rich and broad collection of honey accounts that are automatically blended into Active Directory and distribute honey tokens throughout the company network for malicious actors to locate and exploit. It also identifies tools for stealing credentials by presenting options to use deception.
Identity Attack Surface Management: ShadowPlex Identity Protection outlines the attack surface in identity repositories such as Microsoft Active Directory and Azure Active Directory, as well as the credential caches on different endpoints. This enables a comprehensive study of identity misconfigurations and possible attack vectors via vulnerable relationships, cached credentials, and linkages for lateral movement.
Extensive integrations with the security ecosystem: The ITDR solution from Acalvio integrates with an enterprise's existing SIEM, EDR, SOAR, NAC, and other security solutions to understand the environment's assets, automatically deploy deception across the enterprise, detect the use of decoy credentials, and enable a variety of automated real-time responses.
