StarLink enhances its Identity and Access Management portfolio with SailPoint partnership

Tuesday, 03 November 2020 – Dubai, UAE – StarLink, the fastest growing “True” Value-added Distributor (VAD) in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) region, announced a partnership with SailPoint for distribution in the Middle East and Turkey.  The joint objective is to help organizations drive business efficiency with a robust Identity Management strategy.

A leader in enterprise identity management, SailPoint delivers an innovative approach to securing access across enterprises with the SailPoint Predictive Identity platform, which is powered by AI and Machine Learning (ML) technologies. SailPoint provides enterprise identity governance solutions, tackling with ease the most complex business challenges that global organizations face today as they chart their digital transformation journey.  With SailPoint, organizations have full visibility into their entire workforce and their access to critical business assets needed to do their jobs both securely and effectively.  All of this translates to business value and thus enables businesses to run seamlessly and confidently.

The two companies, through this robust collaboration, will aim to empower enterprises in the region with advanced capabilities to help accelerate their business while delivering adaptive security, continuous compliance, and improved business efficiency.

Nidal Othman, co-founder and managing director, StarLink commented: "The impact of cybersecurity breaches is astounding, which calls for a Zero Trust approach. What customers need today is a strong AI-driven identity strategy that can enable efficient access without compromising on security or compliance. StarLink’s solutions portfolio consists of very strong technologies within its Access Control domain and our alliance with SailPoint will further strengthen our offerings as it complements with many of the Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions,"

"Given the massive number of digital assets to which today’s workforce needs access to do their jobs, global businesses cannot afford to grant that access without properly securing and governing that access. It’s akin to locking the front door but leaving the back door wide open,” said Stephen Bradford, Sr. Vice President Sales at SailPoint. “Identity governance is critical to securing today’s digital workforce and we’re looking forward to partnering with StarLink to provide the strong identity security controls needed to fully protect the enterprise."
