SailPoint addresses access models with latest releases

SailPoint Technologies has launched updates to its SailPoint Predictive Identity platform. These updates are designed to help businesses to simplify and streamline how they create and update access models.

According to SailPoint, more specifically, the new Access Modelling service simplifies role-based identity management and empowers teams to make more educated access decisions in a predictive and autonomous way.

The technology utilises AI to identify similar groupings of users and access to suggest potential roles. From here users can create roles across the business more efficiently.

According to SailPoint, this simplifies the deployment and daily management of a role based identity governance program. As any type of user joins or moves within the organisation, their access rights change automatically to reflect their new position or departure from the company.

This is available without the overhead of traditional approach to access modelling, SailPoint states.

The solution will be available in March as a new cloud service on the SailPoint Predictive Identity platform, which also includes the Access Insights and Recommendation Engine services, also powered by AI.

The SailPoint Access Insights service utilises identity data to provide deeper visibility and intelligence across users (human and non-human) and their access.

It tracks access patterns over a period of time, easing the ability to comply with audit requests or generate reports that flag users whose access may require immediate attention.

The SailPoint Recommendation Engine service evaluates access changes in real-time and provides AI-generated insights to help managers and administrators make informed decisions.

The Recommendation Engine service can also be used to deliver an autonomous experience, bypassing the need to for a human to be involved in granting or revoking access.

For example, the Recommendation Engine automatically approves low risk access, thereby allowing certifiers to focus on anomalous or high-risk access decisions, SailPoint states.

SailPoint chief product officer Paull Trulove says, “We live in a world where identity must adapt in near real-time to stay aligned with today's dynamic business environment. By adding a predictive approach to access modeling, we’re helping companies to simplify and streamline how they create and update access models.

“These models define who can and should have access, based on their organisational role, job responsibilities and business needs, three areas that change constantly across the business.”

According to SailPoint, the Predictive Identity Platform and Access Modeling help organisations of any size to make increasingly education access decisions in a predictive and autonomous way.
