SailPoint launches no-coding tool to automate identity security

FYI, this story is more than a year old

SailPoint has introduced a new feature to customise workflows and automate identity security with no coding required.

During the company's annual conference Navigate 2021: Confidence Redefined, SailPoint launched its new visual tool Workflows, to be generally available in Q4, 2021.

According to SailPoint, today's enterprises are facing a paradigm shift following the accelerated rate of the digital transformation and remote work boom.

As a result, organisations need to be much more agile than ever before and increasingly drive higher operational efficiency by reducing manual tasks across departments, the company states.

With Workflows, SailPoint is working to democratise software development by enabling more people to solve challenges and automate tedious processes with no-code options.

In fact, on this, Gartner predicts that by 2025 70% of new applications developed by enterprises will use low-code or no-code technologies, up from less than 25% in 2020.

According to SailPoint, with Workflows enterprises are able to do the following:

  • Automate use cases like event-driven certifications and custom approvals through APIs and event triggers
  • Accelerate innovation with drag-and-drop builder through no-code workflow, decreasing runtime and freeing up team power to focus on forward looking projects
  • Connect to other SaaS applications, for a broad range of capabilities across a company's technology ecosystem
  • Integrate into a customers cloud environment and SailPoint's partner network

SailPoint EVP of product Grady Summers says, "At SailPoint, we think every organisation deserves an identity security program like the ones we see at Fortune 100 companies.

"However, identity talent is in high demand, and most companies don't have teams of developers available to tailor solutions to their unique needs. We want to put that power into the hands of all of our customers.

"Earlier this year, we opened our identity security platform to be extensible in anticipation of offering no-code options. We continue to build a flexible product to help our customers on every part of their journey.

"We accomplish this with Workflows build security templates once, scale and share with teams for efficiency, all done securely."

Commenting on the release, Flinders University identity services lead Sam Ogden says, "For over 50 years, Flinders University has been a centre of inspiring achievement.

"To continue our mission, we need to remain vigilant on security and speed when granting our people access to resources needed to get the job done.

"We are thrilled to be part of the SailPoint Workflows beta program to help us accomplish security efficiency. My team is already anticipating reaping the benefits from these automation capabilities.

"To have the option to integrate SailPoint within our digital ecosystem or directly within the SailPoint Identity Platform is the flexibility we need today. Workflows is an identity security game-changer that we look forward to implementing.
