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. SailPoint's sophisticated identification platform integrates seamlessly with existing systems and workflows, offering a unified view into all identities and their access. It strives to empower the most complex enterprises globally to build a secure foundation grounded in identity security.
