Ernst & Young and identity management company SailPoint Technologies have partnered in a move to help joint customers secure digital identities across the organization.
EY said Thursday it will integrate cyber managed services with a technology offering SailPoint designed for use on premises or in cloud computing environments to address clients' identity governance requirements.
"Managing digital identities, such as when their people change or shift roles, is a challenge for all large organizations today, especially during acquisitions, divestitures and mergers," said David Burg, cybersecurity leader for EY's advisory business in the Americas.
"Whether it’s compliance controls, access requests, automated provisioning, or password management, those functions are at the heart of any enterprise."
The alliance intends to offer the platform to multiple sectors such as the government, financial services, energy, life sciences and energy markets.
Texas-based Sailpoint offers file access and password management, artificial intelligence, machine learning and access certification services.
