SailPoint and Proofpoint Team Up to Fight Security Threats Facing Today’s Digital Workforce
With more than 90% of today’s threats starting with a seemingly innocuous email, SailPoint Technologies Holdings, the leader in identity management, and Proofpoint, a leading cybersecurity and compliance company, have partnered to protect people’s data and inbox. As part of this partnership, joint customers can now further safeguard high-risk users by identifying and applying appropriate levels of access to critical systems and data. Secure access to sensitive applications and data is under threat now more than ever through targeted phishing emails and malware attacks.

“Hackers are like burglars. If they want to break in, they will. Once a breach takes place, the front door is wide open for the attacker to wreak havoc. CIOs and CISOs are challenged with putting security protocols in place to stop this from happening,” said Robert Herjavec, founder & CEO, Herjavec Group. “Companies need to prioritize their investment in cybersecurity and identity solutions. By prioritizing these investments, companies are better-armed to take real-time action that protects their most vulnerable identities and the access hackers have to sensitive corporate data. Identity is foundational to a security program, especially with the unprecedented acceleration of digital transformation.”
Through the AI-enabled SailPoint Predictive Identity platform, SailPoint provides the vital – and automated — visibility needed into who has access to what sensitive data and applications and whether or not that access is warranted for each person’s role at the company. This, when integrated with Proofpoint’s Targeted Attack Protection (TAP), is a powerful combination that will help to automatically detect, analyze, and block email threats targeting today’s digital workforce at increasing velocity.
“Phishing attacks increased by 350% amid COVID-19, and SailPoint is on a mission to securely connect people to the applications they need to do their best work at home. A big challenge in today’s virtual office is knowing who is most likely to be targeted. Keeping the most vulnerable person secure is imperative,” said Juliette Rizkallah, Chief Marketing Officer, SailPoint. “To mitigate this risk, SailPoint’s integration with Proofpoint allows companies to detect and stop advanced email threats by automatically remediating access as potentially compromised accounts are identified.”
