Bridging the Non-Employee Identity Security Gap with SailPoint and Regatta
In today’s digital landscape, organizations face an ever-evolving challenge in managing access and securing sensitive data. Identity security is crucial, not only for employees but also for non-employees (contractors, contingent workers, partners, and service accounts) who play a significant role in business operations. That’s why Regatta is excited to offer integration and implementation services for the SailPoint Non-Employee Risk Management (NERM) solution.
As a SailPoint Delivery Admiral Partner well-versed in the NERM solution, we are assisting our customers in quickly deploying NERM into their identity security programs. In this article, we will delve into the importance of NERM and how Regatta is empowering organizations to strengthen their security posture while streamlining core IAM processes.
NERM: A Much-Needed Solution
SailPoint’s NERM solution addresses a critical aspect of identity security that has often been overlooked—the management of non-employee identities. These non-employees, including contractors, vendors, and partners, have access to sensitive systems and data, making them potential targets for cyber threats.
According to a recent survey, the average cost of a third party data breach is $4.29M. Managing non-employee access can be more challenging than managing employee access. NERM introduces a comprehensive approach to managing non-employee identities, ensuring that the right level of access is granted to the right individuals at the right time.
The Power of Integration
At Regatta, we understand the importance of seamless integration and delivering maximum value for a faster ROI. As organizations look to add NERM to their SailPoint Identity Cloud solution, Regatta can assist in defining non-employee resources and access requirements of contractors, vendors and partners. We then help align and integrate NERM with core business processes, roles and applications.
By aligning NERM with existing identity governance initiatives, Regatta can help customers to establish a unified framework that encompasses both employee and non-employee identities. This integration not only streamlines identity management processes but also strengthens security controls across the board.
Benefits of SailPoint’s NERM Solution
1. Enhanced Security: NERM provides a holistic view of non-employee access, allowing organizations to identify potential risks and promptly mitigate them. According to a recent study, 51% of organizations suffered a data breach caused by a third-party. With centralized visibility and control, organizations can proactively safeguard sensitive data.
2. Streamlined Compliance: NERM helps organizations meet regulatory requirements by enforcing consistent access controls for both employees and non-employees. Non-compliance can lead to severe consequences, including hefty fines and reputational damage. NERM ensures compliance with industry standards and minimizes the risk of data breaches.
3. Improved Efficiency: By automating non-employee onboarding and offboarding processes, NERM reduces administrative burdens and enhances operational efficiency. 62% of organizations manually manage non-employee identities, leading to inefficiencies and increased security risks. NERM empowers organizations to quickly grant and revoke access, eliminating security gaps associated with manual processes.
4. Heightened User Experience: With NERM, legitimate non-employees experience a seamless and user-friendly access management process. This improves productivity and fosters stronger relationships with external partners and contractors.
As organizations embrace digital transformation and rely on a diverse ecosystem of non-employees, managing their identities becomes paramount. SailPoint’s NERM solution offers a powerful and comprehensive approach to non-employee risk management. Our knowledgeable Regatta team can deliver the SailPoint Non-Employee Risk Management solution as an add-on to the SailPoint Identity Security Cloud.
