It surprises me that in today’s digitally accelerated world, many organizations are still trying to manage and secure their identities with manual processes – using older means like spreadsheets, for example – which is nearly impossible. According to our recent survey, 55% of companies still rely on manual processes to adjust user access when IT environments change. This opens the proverbial door to unnecessary workloads, human error that can result in significant risk to the organization, and lost worker productivity, increasing organizational costs.  

From user onboarding and access/change requests to certifications, password resets, and stopping risky access – already overloaded security and IT teams are facing mounting responsibilities concerning organizational and change management. One might say these responsibilities go beyond what’s humanly possible to perform successfully.  

“Today, as never before, organizations need to perform IAM tasks quickly and accurately, with maximum security, but with the least annoyance to users and minimum disruption to the business.”1 How can Security/IT resources achieve this conflicting balance?   

Automation with AI-driven identity security is at the heart of the balance. It can minimize risk, maximize scale, flexibility, and efficiency, and help organizations maintain a robust, effective, and compliant cyber security posture.  

This is where SailPoint steps in. At the core of SailPoint Identity Security are AI and machine learning.
