Saviynt Vs. Sailpoint

SailPoint-Logo-RGB-Inverse-mingray

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’re buying multiple products built on different code bases

The Identity Authority

  • SailPoint IdentityNow wasn’t included in either of Gartner’s 2021 or 2022 IGA comparison reports

Faster ROI and Day One Value

  • Realize up to 240% ROI 
  • Deploy an enterprise-grade solution in weeks, not months
  • Eliminate complexity
  • SailPoint IdentityNow is rigid, inextensible, and not as fully-featured as Saviynt’s Enterprise Identity Cloud

True Convergence

  • Saviynt is a single integrated platform with one underlying architecture and code base
  • Built on Zero Trust
  • Maintain continuous compliance
  • They’ve acquired new products and will get around to integrating them at some point
