AUSTIN, Texas -- July 23, 2013

Leveraging its deep expertise in identity and access management (IAM),
SailPoint today announced the industry’s first IAM-as-a-service (IDaaS) that
delivers enterprise-grade identity governance, provisioning and access
management in a single, unified solution. Based on more than two years of
dedicated R&D, SailPoint IdentityNow™ provides all the benefits of
software-as-a-service (SaaS) - including faster time to value, ease of use,
and lower operational and upgrade costs - combined with the security,
scalability, and enterprise integration capabilities that global organizations

SailPoint IdentityNow is an enterprise-grade IDaaS solution that unifies
identity governance, provisioning and access management into a single
solution. The access certification dashboard (seen here) provides the manager
a summary of all team members' access privileges for periodic review to ensure
compliance and reduce risk. It can be accessed via a desktop or mobile device.

To date, enterprises have been slow to adopt IDaaS because of data security
concerns, cross-domain integration challenges, and the limited capabilities of
existing IDaaS offerings, which focus primarily on single sign-on (SSO)
capabilities. With more than a decade of history and experience delivering IAM
to the world’s largest organizations, the SailPoint team is uniquely qualified
to deliver a comprehensive IDaaS suite that meets the most stringent security,
availability, scalability, and performance requirements. IdentityNow provides
end-to-end data security, including strong encryption and secure and
firewall-friendly integration to on-premises applications. The company has
completed a rigorous SSAE16 SOC 1 audit.

“A true enterprise-grade IDaaS solution provides a lot of value to
organizations like ours by addressing all of our IAM needs in a single
solution and reducing the amount of time spent on implementation and
customization,”said Roger Gilhooly, CISO of Freescale® Semiconductor. “With
IdentityNow, organizations can focus precious IT resources on rolling out new
services to more applications, and that means more IT control and visibility
over more applications in less time, which directly improves a company’s
security posture.”

IdentityNow is a simple-to-deploy, cost-effective SaaS solution that provides
immediate value to business and IT users with services that are fast to set up
and easy to use. Its out-of-the-box capabilities mitigate the need for the
heavy customization that is commonplace in enterprise IAM tools. Default
policies, solution templates, and setup wizards make it easy to begin using
IdentityNow, allowing enterprises to roll out IAM services within a matter of
days. IdentityNow also features an innovative “mobile-first” interface and
consumer-focused usability  to simplify how business users manage daily IAM
needs, including logging into cloud and web applications, requesting or
reviewing access, and resetting passwords. The solution  gives business users
the convenience and ease of use they require, providing anytime, anywhere
access to IdentityNow’s services through their desktop and mobile devices.

SailPoint is the only IAM provider to offer enterprises a range of choices for
deploying IAM and for migrating from on-premises to IDaaS over time. The
company’s industry-leading IAM suite, SailPoint IdentityIQ, delivers identity
governance, provisioning, and access management via an on-premises deployment
model, while IdentityNow provides a full suite of IAM capabilities delivered
as cloud services. For customers who may wish to migrate to IDaaS in the
future, SailPoint provides an innovative “Cloud On-Ramp” program that gives
customers the flexibility to migrate from IdentityIQ to IdentityNow with
minimal business disruption.

“Customers have been underserved by the IDaaS products available in the market
because they do not meet the full scope of requirements for enterprise-grade
IAM,” said Kevin Cunningham, president and founder of SailPoint. “We spent two
years designing and building IdentityNow with the specific needs of our
enterprise customers in mind. With SailPoint IdentityIQ, and now SailPoint
IdentityNow, we can provide the maximum range of choice for today’s IAM
challenges. And, our Cloud On-Ramp offers IdentityIQ customers a seamless
migration path should they decide they want to evolve to an IDaaS model in the
future. We believe our approach represents a significant market shift as to
how IAM will be procured in the future.”

Pricing and Availability

IdentityNow will be sold on a per-user, per-month, per-service subscription.
IdentityNow services that will be available this quarter include: SSO, access
certifications, and password management. Access request and provisioning and
advanced policy and analytics services will be available in early 2014.
