Managed Security Services: Identity & Access Management Emerge
Mycroft Inc., an identity and access management specialist, is partnering up with SailPoint on a range of security initiatives.The relationship caught our attention because SailPoint has a channel partner program, and Mycroft is positioning the joint solution as a managed service for enterprises.
According to a joint statement, the Mycroft Managed Security Service for SailPoint is a pre-configured identity management solution that can be deployed in a managed private cloud environment. Mycroft’s security operations center monitors the instance and customer networks 24 hours a day.
SailPoint IdentityIQ claims its identity management solutions help enterprises to:
- Minimize IT risk
- Achieve corporate compliance
- Reduce IT operational costs
- Speed deployment time
