New round of patents granted for AI identity platform
SailPoint has announced that the company has been granted additional US patents related to the SailPoint Predictive Identity platform, the company’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML)-enabled identity platform.
The first patent, 'System and Method for Intelligent Agents for Decision Support in Network Identity Graph-Based Identity Management AI Systems', is fundamental to the SailPoint Predictive Identity Recommendation Engine service. This service speeds the decision-making process by identifying and recommending who should have access to what and why and enabling auto-approval for low risk access during approvals and certification campaigns.
The second patent, 'System and Method for Role Mining in Identity Management Artificial Intelligence Systems Using Cluster Based Analysis of Network Identity Graphs', relates to the new Access Modelling service, which streamlines the process of creating and updating enterprise role models. With the SailPoint Predictive Identity platform, these models define who can and should have access, based on their current role, job responsibilities and business needs, three areas that change constantly across the business.
These patents come on the heels of the original patent that SailPoint was granted for the SailPoint Predictive Identity platform last year for its graph-based approach to peer group analysis. This patent, 'System and Method for Peer Group Detection, Visualisation and Analysis in Identity Management Artificial Intelligence Systems Using Cluster-Based Analysis of Network Identity Graphs', now includes two additional patents.
“Customers are struggling to keep pace with the rate of change in their businesses and IT systems without sacrificing security or slowing their workers down,” said SailPoint Vice President, Lead Corporate Architect Matt Domsch.
“By driving a more intelligent and automated approach to identity, we’re enabling our customers with an identity programme that matches the speed of their business. The patented technologies that form the foundation of the SailPoint Predictive Identity platform are fundamental to evolving identity to be the predictive, dynamic and adaptive approach to securing the enterprise that our customers require today.”
