Saviynt vs Sailpoint

Enterprises Choose Saviynt.

Here’s why Saviynt rises above SailPoint.

True SaaS Delivered Platform

  • Built in the cloud, for the cloud
  • Cloud native and microservice-based
  • Single platform

  • Couldn’t quite deliver on their cloud platform, so you still need Identity IQ

Clear Identity Governance Leader

  • Ranked a leader in multiple analyst reports
  • Enjoy cloud flexibility, agility, and security with a tenant just for you
  • Costs us more, but we’d rather you be secure

  • SailPoint IdentityNow is not seen as a leading IGA solution by all analysts.

Faster ROI & Time to Value

  • SailPoint IdentityNow is rigid, inextensible, and not as fully-featured as Saviynt’s Enterprise Identity Cloud

Converged Solution

  • Transform your security posture with five core IAM capabilities on a cloud-first platform
  • Built on Zero Trust
  • Maintain continuous compliance

  • They’ve acquired new products and will get around to integrating them at some point
