SailPoint Announces Intent to Acquire Intello

AUSTIN, February 18, 2021 – SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SAIL), the
leader in identity security for the cloud enterprise, today announced its intent to acquire Intello, an early-stage SaaS management company that helps organizations to discover, manage, and secure SaaS applications, particularly the “shadow access” that is currently outside of IT’s purview. This pairing will address a current lack of visibility into what SaaS apps exist across today’s digital business combined with the critical need to properly manage and secure access to these apps for all workers. As a result,
SailPoint’s Identity Platform will give IT teams a seamless process from discovery to
governance, ensuring every newly-discovered SaaS app (and data within) is protected
with the right identity security controls.

“The IT landscape has changed markedly from even just a few years ago with the influx
of new technologies and, more recently, the impact of the predominantly remote
workforce. In their quest to work smarter and faster, workers are buying and self-
provisioning unsanctioned SaaS apps at a record pace with little or no oversight by IT,”
said Grady Summers, EVP Product, SailPoint. “This has led to a sharp rise in
ungoverned SaaS sprawl and unprotected data that is being stored and shared within
these apps. With little to no visibility into what shadow access exists within their
organization, IT teams are further challenged to protect from the cyber risks that have
increased over the past year.”


With Intello, SailPoint will enable organizations to shine a light on ungoverned SaaS
apps that lie hidden across the business and then extend the right security controls to
ensure only the right people have access to those apps. This will provide greater
visibility and control over what data these SaaS apps are accessing, what information
they may be importing and whether or not they are configured properly. And, when
SailPoint’s artificial intelligence capabilities are combined with the detailed usage data
and analytics that Intello provides, customers will begin to benefit from new types of
identity security recommendations--helping them better secure their SaaS applications
and improve compliance.


Summers continued, “With the rapid adoption and use of cloud technologies in the past year, we want to make it incredibly easy for customers to get their arms around the risk of SaaS app sprawl. Discovery combined with visibility are the name of the game here, and we’ll be able to deliver that to our customers with Intello. With our deep identity security knowledge and expertise combined with Intello’s expertise in SaaS app
management, we believe this acquisition will allow SailPoint to fully secure and support
this future world of work – enabling secure SaaS adoption at scale with identity
security.”
