Ernst & Young, SailPoint to help organisations transform how they manage digital identities in workplace

Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) and SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc., a leader in enterprise identity governance, announced they have entered into a strategic alliance agreement to help organisations transform how they manage the growing number of digital identities in the workplace.

EY US and SailPoint will help their common clients implement on-premise, hosted, and cloud-based identity governance more efficiently, focused on both business and technology requirements while driving decreased cost, risk reduction and an increased focus on return on investment (ROI). There are plans to expand the alliance to additional EY member firms outside the US.

EY US will leverage its ability to scale across organisations and regions, as well as provide cyber managed service capabilities, while SailPoint will provide its identity governance platform, designed to be deployed in the cloud or on-premise. EY US and SailPoint will address digital identity needs for large organisations across a wide range of industries, such as financial services, healthcare, life sciences, energy, consumer products, auto, media, and government and public services sectors.

Commenting on the alliance between EY and Sailpoint, Charalambos Constantinou, Partner and Head of Advisory Services of EY Cyprus commented: “Managing digital identities, such as when people change or shift roles, is a challenge for all large organisations today, especially during mergers and acquisitions, or divestitures. Our new strategic alliance with SailPoint, following our long history of collaboration and innovation, will allow us to introduce a modern identity governance platform based on cutting edge technology. At EY Cyprus, we are excited to welcome this new alliance and the news that it will gradually expand to more EY member firms outside the US.”
