Identity Security Partnership: Simeio and SailPoint Combine Capabilities

Social Networking or distancing concept

Simeio, a provider of identity and access management (IAM) services for cybersecurity clients, has announced a partnership with SailPoint, a specialist in enterprise identity security, according to a prepared statement.

Partnership Powers Identity Security

This partnership, according to the statement, aims to enhance the companies’ identity security capabilities and protection measures. They will accomplish this by “adopting enterprise identity governance controls backed by best-in-class technologies and people.”

Successfully implementing identity governance and administration (IGA) programs is one of the biggest challenges enterprises face in realizing ROI for identity investments, Simeio said. As such, the partnership will allow clients to drive large-scale adoption and integration of their IGA programs through simplification, automation and business enablement.

Simeio added that its end-to-end identity security services will provide continuous threat protection, monitoring, remediation and maturity of identity processes across enterprises.

Company Leaders Cheer Partnership

Speaking about the partnership with SailPoint, Simeio CEO Chris Schueler said:

"I am excited about what this partnership will allow us to bring to our existing and prospective clients jointly. With Simeio's unmatchable experience in transforming identity programs and SailPoint's revolutionary identity security technology, we are confident to deliver nothing but the best to our clients."

Asif Savvas, Simeio’s chief product officer, added:

"This partnership between an identity technology leader and an identity services leader aims to deliver top-notch solutions that address today's security, risk and compliance needs. We aim to achieve this through convergence, interoperability and large-scale adoption across the enterprise for identity services."

SailPoint, acquired in 2022 by Thoma Bravo, and Simeio clients will also benefit from the identity convergence capabilities of the Simeio IO platform, the companies said. This convergence of IGA, access management and privilege identity functions will deliver cross-domain identity analytics. In doing so, these systems can more effectively detect and identify threats before they happen.
