Okta teams with SailPoint for joint identity management service
SaaS identity providers Okta and SailPoint Technologies have inked a strategic partnership that aims to tackle access and identity governance problems for enterprises.
Okta and SailPoint are often pitted as rivals, but the companies offer different solutions to the online identity management problem. Okta functions as a badge reader, managing employee access to business applications and data. SailPoint’s platform works on the governance side, determining whether the person with the badge should gain access based on assigned privileges and corporate security policies.
