SailPoint Vs Oracle Identity Management

Before going forward with the comparison between Sailpoint and OIM, Let’s have a quick overview of IGA.

Identity Governance & Administration (IGA), also simply known as identity Governance, is both a policy framework and set of security solutions that enables organizations to mitigate access-related risks and manage identity chaos within their business more effectively.

IGA(Identity Governance) is considered part of identity and Access Management (IAM). Identity Governance offers organizations increased visibility into the identities and access privileges of users, so they can better manage who has access to what systems, and when.

IGA is at the center of IT operations, enabling and securing digital identities for all users, applications, and data.  IGA automates the creation, management, and certification of user accounts, roles, and access rights for individual users in an organization. This means companies can streamline user provisioning, password management, policy management, access governance, and access reviews within their business.

In Simple Words, “IGA means leveraging the most intelligent and efficient path to mitigating identity risk in your business”.
