SailPoint Named as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration

SailPoint today announced it is the 62nd fastest growing technology company in North America, and the fastest growing of all IAM companies according to the recent Deloitte Technology Fast 500. As additional validation that SailPoint is leading the rapidly growing identity and access management (IAM) market, the company surpassed the $100 million mark in cumulative GAAP revenue in 2013 and lists hundreds of the world’s largest organizations as customers. Additionally, SailPoint was recently named a Leader in Gartner’s 2013 “Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration” based on the company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute.

The IAM market is poised to reach about $3.5 billion this year. SailPoint, which provides customers with the innovation, customer service and expertise they need to stay on top of their identity challenges, is well positioned to take advantage of this surging market. The company currently boasts one of the industry’s largest, dedicated teams of IAM experts with an average of more than six years of IAM-specific experience per employee. The company is committed to every customer’s success, and maintains a 90%+ customer satisfaction level. As an example of SailPoint’s commitment to innovation, the company recently delivered the industry’s first enterprise-grade IAM-as-a-service (IDaaS) offering. With both SailPoint IdentityIQ and SailPoint IdentityNow, the company delivers the maximum range of choice for customers to address their ever-evolving IAM challenges.

“The IAM market is experiencing the hottest growth I’ve seen in my career,” said Kevin Cunningham, president and founder of SailPoint. “SailPoint’s market-leading innovation and unparalleled commitment to our customers is fueling our continued growth. We believe that being named a Leader in the Gartner IGA Magic Quadrant is validation that our heritage and deep expertise in enterprise IAM will continue to lead the charge as the market evolves. We pioneered the identity governance market and completely disrupted the legacy provisioning market, and we will continue to deliver innovative solutions that meet the evolving IAM needs of the world’s largest companies.”

The IGA Magic Quadrant report replaces two previous Magic Quadrant reports, one on identity and access governance (IAG), and the other on user administration and provisioning. As part of the assessment process for inclusion in the Magic Quadrant, Gartner conducted an exhaustive product and company evaluation and interviewed customers from each vendor in the report.

The 2013 Technology Fast 500 is an annual ranking of the fastest growing public and private technology companies. The ranking is based on five year’s of fiscal year revenue growth that is validated and measured by Deloitte. SailPoint's growth rate from 2008 to 2012 was 3,483%, which is well above the average growth of all the software companies on the list. Deloitte’s Fast 500 is the second time in a year that SailPoint’s record growth has been validated by a third party. Earlier in 2013, the UK-based analyst firm Ovum conducted its IAM market analysis and concluded that SailPoint is one of the fastest-growing IAM vendors in the market, writing in the 2013 Ovum IAM Decision Matrix that SailPoint’s growth is “more than double that of its nearest competitor and has been a strong measure of the company's success for the last three years.”

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos.
