SailPoint Integration

  • Share this blog:

SailPoint's identity governance platform can be integrated with AWS, SAP, Microsoft Azure, ServiceNow, and many more applications. This methodology provides adequate security controls over access to these applications and systems. This blog lets you learn how SailPoint is integrated with the applications and ensures control access. You can learn identity governance and predictive identity platforms of SailPoint in detail in this blog. Let's jump into the blog to learn more. 


These days, the demand to access on-premises and cloud infrastructure increases as businesses scale over time. According to Dimensional Research Global Survey (2020), 97% of organisations encounter problems in IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) services because of malware attacks, stealing data, hijacking resources, and sometimes shutdown of critical services. So, organisations provide security to their infrastructure on high priority, meeting compliance requirements. In this way, SailPoint offers a solution to secure the infrastructure of organisations with their effective identity management and governance tools. It provides an end-to-end solution to secure all user identities and applications of your organisation.

Let us dive into this blog, where we will see the challenges in the security of identities, SailPoint’s comprehensive solution, featured integrations of SailPoint, and the benefits of SailPoint’s identity governance.

What are the challenges in managing digital identities?

Organisations encounter many challenges while they secure their digital identities in their infrastructure. Here, we list the challenges that they face as of now. Let’s get to that;

  • Increased use of resources over time
  • Managing the security of the resources have been a huge burden to IT staff
  • Partners, contractors, and customers could access data and applications based on the roles and requirements, which in turn leads to insecurity and risks
  • When the resources are large, the access-auditing process for compliance becomes complex and tedious.

How Does SailPoint Integration Secure Your Digital Identities?

SailPoint integration helps govern and control access for all your applications, data, and systems. Let’s see how SailPoint achieves this:

To begin with, know that SailPoint modernises your security ecosystem. When you integrate the identities of your organisation with SailPoint, it protects your applications by governing the identities effectively. SailPoint has policy-driven self-service tools, which will allow automating access requests, provisioning, and password reset. So, you can create robust security policies using these tools. As these policies help prevent fraud, theft, and breaches in your systems and applications, you can effectively secure them.

On top of all, SailPoint has the flexibility to adapt to the ever-changing business demands and manage new threats in access controls and security policies. As a result, SailPoint integration helps you get complete visibility on risky users and prevent excess access to users.

What are the Featured Integrations of SailPoint?

SailPoint can integrate with hundreds of applications right from AdobeCloud to Zoom. At the same time, the applications such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, SAP, and ServiceNow are known as the featured integrations of SailPoint.

Let’s look into how these featured applications integrate with SailPoint to protect their applications and systems.

How Does SailPoint Integrate With AWS?

Features of SailPoint AWS integration:

SailPoint follows the strategy of discover, model, manage and govern to carry out identity governance in applications. SailPoint ensures the security of AWS services based on the factors such as identity visibility, identity lifecycle management, and compliance to manage and secure AWS cloud services.

Next, Let’s see how SailPoint integration is carried out with AWS and governs identities effectively.

Aggregation of AWS Access Information:

SailPoint aggregates all the AWS users, groups, policies, roles, and organization information. Accordingly, it creates, updates, and deletes accounts and groups to ensure secured access to AWS resources.

Federation Support:

In this integration type, users are authenticated by their identity providers such as Okta, active directory, etc., while logging into AWS federated accounts. Then, permission to access AWS sources is granted based on the users’ identity and entitlements. Here, SailPoint takes the role of governing federated accounts and maintaining audit trails.

How Does SailPoint Integrate with SAP?

SailPoint is integrated with SAP via connectors such as SAP HR/HCM connector, HANA connector, SAP success factors, SAP ERP module, SAP governance module, and GRC module. By integrating SailPoint with SAP, you get the ability to manage multiple SAP applications and modules. As a single platform, SailPoint helps manage automated lifecycle management, SoD policy, access requests, and access reviews; as a result, you can increase the efficiency of your business well enough.

Now, let’s see how SailPoint integration is carried out with SAP applications and identities are governed effectively.

Aggregate Users, Groups, and Policies:

At the first stage, SailPoint aggregates SAP users, groups, and policies. After that, it defines and applies cross-domain Separation of Duty (SoD) policies to control access to resources. You can use SoD policies across various applications to control users' access and detect cross-application violations. Also, it helps you to manage large sets of SAP data with targeted filters and prevent granting incorrect provisions of entitlements to users.

SailPoint Connects with Multiple SAP Applications:

SailPoint can connect with multiple resources providing complete identity governance across all your SAP applications. For example, you can view the HR and system resource hierarchy in order to define access control to users based on their roles. This facility will improve your decision-making process. Here, SAP HR/HCM connector helps aggregate and provide employee information from HR systems.

How does Sailpoint Integrate with ServiceNow?

SailPoint integrates with ServiceNow's self-service interface and service desk system. SailPoint streamlines request processes with integrated security meeting compliance requirements. The centralised visibility to all users and applications supports to prevent of inappropriate access to resources. Thus, simplified ServiceNow automation and governance is achieved by integrating SailPoint with the ServiceNow application.

Now, let’s see how SailPoint integration is carried out with the ServiceNow application and identities are managed effectively.

Aggregates Accounts and Entitlements:

SailPoint aggregates ServiceNow accounts and entitlements, which provides a complete view of the ServiceNow access details. Then, it creates, updates, and deletes accounts in order to optimise identity governance in the ServiceNow application. And SailPoint carries out password management in the ServiceNow application to satisfy compliances, enhance security, and improve productivity.

Creates Ticket Requests Automatically:

SailPoint helps to create ticket requests automatically in the ServiceNow application. And SailPoint monitors the tickets right from the request up to its completion. Besides, violations in SoD policy are detected, and access control is managed accordingly.

Generates role-based access requests

When ServiceNow receives role-based requests to access resources, SailPoint syncs this request with user access provisioning. Then, SailPoint processes the service requests further to access. SailPoint supports processing software and equipment requests in a single transaction.

How does SailPoint Integrate With Microsoft Azure?

SailPoint cloud governance integrates with Microsoft Azure cloud platform. Then, SailPoint learns, monitors, and controls the access of all Microsoft azure accounts with its AI and machine learning capabilities.
Let’s see the functions of SailPoint after it is integrated with Microsoft Azure
