BeyondTrust integrates with SailPoint Identity Governance

The integration of BeyondTrust’s Privileged Access Management Platform with SailPoint IdentityIQ enables enterprises to successfully track, manage and secure all identities across their environment.

BeyondTrust, a worldwide leader in Privileged Access Management, has announced that the BeyondTrust Privileged Access Management (PAM) Platform has been recertified to interoperate with the most current versions of SailPoint IdentityIQ, enabling joint customers to continue and extend their secure management of both privileged and non-privileged accounts.

The integrated solution combines BeyondTrust PasswordSafe’s strong controls for privileged accounts, including credential vaulting, credential rotation, session monitoring, session control and session record/playback, with SailPoint’s life cycle management of identity governance, including account and entitlement provisioning and deprovisioning, access request approvals and workflow, access certification and separation of duties policy enforcement.

The new SailPoint Certified capability leverages the System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) API built into the SailPoint IdentityIQ PAM Module, allowing privileged account vaults and associated entitlements to be visible and managed throughout the identity governance process.

This allows the automated provisioning of privileged accounts to new end-users that require them based on their job function, group membership or business role, and allows managers to recertify or remove privileged accounts on a periodic and/or event-driven basis.

Password Safe provides privileged password management and privileged session management in one unified solution. With secure discovery, management, auditing, and monitoring for any privileged credential, Password Safe customers can achieve complete control and accountability over privileged accounts throughout the cross-platform enterprise.

The resulting benefits of the integration include:

  • Automated access: Immediately empower IT admins, specialists and executives with the privileged access they need to do their job
  • Centralised management:  Provide a complete, centralised view of each identity’s access across all standard and privileged/shared/system accounts
  • Reduced risk:  Continuously remove unnecessary privileged accounts as users switch jobs or leave the company

 “In order to meet audit and compliance requirements, IT organisations must know who has access to specific applications and data, whether that access is appropriate, and that it’s being used properly,” said Joe Gottlieb, SVP, Strategy and Business Development at SailPoint.

“To meet the ongoing security challenges today, IT organisations need to have full visibility and control to effectively govern user access for both privileged as well as non-privileged accounts.”

Dan DeRosa, Chief Product Officer, BeyondTrust, said: “SailPoint IdentityIQ users can now leverage the fine-grained controls and verifiable audit visibility through detailed activity logs, session monitoring and keystroke logging to understand who is doing what with their privileges.

“Combined with BeyondTrust’s strong behavioural analytics, organisations can more effectively identify and mitigate external and internal information security threats.

“We offer the broadest set of integrations, and our partnership with SailPoint is yet another example of our open architecture and commitment to customers to create the market’s most comprehensive view of insider and privilege risk.”

Mike Wyatt, Identity solutions leader for cyber risk services and principal in Deloitte & Touche LLP, said: “As a leading systems integrator of BeyondTrust and SailPoint we are pleased that this integration is now available because it is our goal to make available to our clients a broad identity platform.

“We also want to share how great it is to watch BeyondTrust emerge as such a strong partner in the privileged access space and to see them be named as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Privileged Access Management.”
