AUSTIN, Texas -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- SailPoint kicks off Navigate ’14, the company’s second annual customer conference, in Austin today. The sold-out event features an impressive line-up of speakers from SailPoint’s extensive bench of customers, including: AXA Belgium, Guardian Life and Rockwell Automation. The more than 300 attendees will also hear two exclusive keynotes from Lori Robinson, managing vice president of Gartner, and Dave Kearns, senior analyst of KuppingerCole. During the conference, SailPoint partners and customers will share best practices for maximizing their SailPoint investment, learn how to demonstrate ROI next-generation identity management, and discuss the future of identity and access management (IAM).
“While emerging technologies like cloud and mobile are presenting ‘new’ IAM challenges, at the end of the day organizations are still grappling with the basics of controlling ‘who has access to what’ due to the ever-changing security, compliance and business requirement that IT must address,” said Kevin Cunningham, president and founder of SailPoint. “Navigate provides another opportunity for us to help customers better understand how next-generation IAM addresses their top IAM challenges today and well into the future. It also offers the ability to connect directly with their peers and hear from our broad range of top-notch speakers as to how to push the boundaries of IAM in this ever-changing market.”
SailPoint was recently recognized as the fastest growing IAM company on the Deloitte Fast 500, and has established a growing community of hundreds of customers around the world. The company also has 60 partners who are actively engaged in building and maintaining the SailPoint community.

"We would like to thank FishNet Security, First Point Global and Qubera Solutions for their dedicated work over the last year on SailPoint’s behalf,” said Cunningham. “Capable partners such as these are critical to meeting the growing demand for IAM we're seeing in this market.
