Polish network and security VAD Clico has finalised a contract with SailPoint Technologies and introduced a new category of identity and access management products to its distribution offer, i.e. Identity and Access Management.
"The demand for Identity and Access Management solutions is enormous. Clico for many years now is working as a security auditor. One of the most difficult security challenges is to manage access and privileges of employees who change jobs and leave the organization. Managing this process is dependent on the discipline of the personnel department, IT workers and superiors. Without special tools this process is not working properly. As an auditor, we often detect 'ghost' accounts and accounts with privileges accumulated over the years as we work with our clients”, says Mariusz Stawowski, CTO at Clico Group and responsible for the development of technologies promotion strategies and management of the technical team.
SailPoint Technologies offers solutions that allow to create a coherent, organisation-wide policy of managing access to resources such as data, applications and infrastructure.
"The benefits of SailPoint are appreciated by both clients and independent consulting companies. Smaller organisations can use ready-to-use built-in tools to implement good practices based on SailPoint’s Identity Platform. Larger ones SailPoint’s Identity Platform will benefit from the ability to create complex configuration scenarios", comments Dragomir Jevtic, Country Manager at Clico Adriatics.
"In large organisations where structure is complex SailPoint Predictive Identity, SailPoint’s AI-enabled approach to identity, can be used – a technology of behavioural analysis and organisational structure with the usage of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Integration with many applications (SAP, HR, PAS) is available as a 'out-of-the-box' model. This makes it possible to manage the life cycle of user profiles from the first to the last day. Other applications, esp. own ones can be integrated based on the API. Systematic access analysis allows estimation of risks associated with user access and allows assessing compliance with auditors' regulations or requirements. The available integration with PAS solutions, e.g. Cyberark, allows to extend the risk analysis to the activities of privileged account operators", adds Radosław Szyszko, Security Consultant at Clico.
SailPoint Technologies is an American company founded in 2005, being a global leader in the market of identity governance products for many years. "As the market leader for identity governance, we are committed to helping organisations of all sizes securely govern all of their digital identities, ensuring that there is solid visibility and control over who has access to what, and how that access is being used for every user in the company”, said Volker Sommer, DACH & Eastern Europe VP, SailPoint. "We look forward to working together with Clico to put our SailPoint Identity Platform into the hands of more companies across Central and Eastern Europe with this distribution agreement."
