SailPoint Extends Its Open IAM Platform with Plugin Framework

perimeterSailPoint has extended its open identity management platform, IdentityIQ, with a plugin framework. The plugin framework will allow customers and partners to develop extensions to product features. As part of its identity plugin framework early access program, SailPoint unveiled a plugin to help manage PAM (privileged account management) solutions, and a series of early access plugins from partners including: ColumnIT, Heimore, Identropy, KOGIT, KPMG and Regatta..

“Our vision for an open platform was to create a community of ‘power users’ who are actively extending their IAM programs into new areas, and we’re excited to help them to accelerate that innovation,” said Paul Trulove, vice president of product management for SailPoint. “Enterprises today have unique identity governance needs as they grow and scale their IAM implementations. We believe we can accelerate innovation by allowing the industry to build upon the industry’s leading identity governance product, IdentityIQ, to deliver value in new ways.”
