SailPoint Releases Industry’s First Identity Annual Report

Jaa

SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SAIL), the leader in enterprise identity governance, today released the 2018 Identity Report, the industry’s first benchmark. In 2017, SailPoint launched a free assessment tool to help identify areas of exposure for companies, which automatically computed an “Identity Score” based on its results. After analyzing hundreds of completed self-assessments and the correlating Identity Scores, SailPoint found that while the majority of organizations have an identity program in place, there is still much work to be done to address holes in their security programs.

“IT leaders are struggling to secure an increasingly complex IT environment, driven by the need to govern a diverse population of users, now including non-human users like software bots, as well as an explosion of both applications and data,” said Kari Hanson, Vice President of Corporate Marketing, SailPoint. “Our goal with the Identity Report, coupled with individual Identity Scores, is to provide IT leaders with a roadmap to systematically improve their security and compliance programs.”

In order to adapt to their own digital transformation, organizations are now starting to put access control front and center in their security strategy to properly monitor who has access to what applications and data. In fact, SailPoint’s Identity Report showed that 54 percent of organizations have an identity program in place.

However, SailPoint’s research found that many organizations are lacking maturity in their governance processes over identities. Just 20 percent of organizations have visibility over all of their users, and 7 percent have no visibility over their users at all. Not only is this a compliance requirement for organizations today, but this puts IT teams in the impossible position of trying to secure what they cannot see.

Further, an overwhelming 88 percent of organizations are not properly governing access to data stored in files, including such common formats as Excel and PowerPoint. In fact, only 1 in 10 organizations is monitoring and governing their users’ access to data in files. By leaving the slew of corporate data stored in files and folders unmonitored and ungoverned, organizations are leaving a gaping hole in their security programs.

While the Identity Report exposes areas of risk, it also highlights an opportunity for most organizations. Today, only 10 percent of organizations have fully automated identity processes in place, although many companies are working toward increased efficiencies. For already-lean IT teams, an identity governance platform provides the visibility and control required to automate employee-driven processes like password management and access request. This frees IT staff to focus on other risk areas and ensures employee productivity.

“The ultimate goal of any identity program is to efficiently deliver access to users, securely and confidently,” continued Hanson. “When enterprises are able to see, understand and govern their users’ access to all business applications and data, they are better protected against potential threats. This turns identity into a business enabler for organizations, helping them to properly secure and govern all of their digital identities at the speed of business today.”

STEMCELL Technologies Launches mTeSR™ Plus, a Next-Generation Culture System for Human ES and iPS Cell Maintenance23.1.2019 14:00Tiedote

STEMCELL Technologies has released mTeSR™ Plus, an enhanced version of mTeSR™1, the most widely published feeder-free human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC) maintenance medium. The new medium has undergone successful beta testing with several members of the Stem Cell COREdinates group and has completed rigorous in-house validation testing. Designed to promote a more consistent cell culture environment through sustained medium pH and stabilized components including FGF2, mTeSR™ Plus prevents the rapid onset of acidosis. This helps avoid conditions that have been associated with DNA damage, genomic instability, and growth arrest in hPSCs. The stabilization enhancements allow for greater hPSC expansion rates, enhanced culture morphology, and truly versatile feeding schedules including the option to skip weekends. “With the launch of mTeSR™ Plus, STEMCELL is positioned to set new industry standards in the pluripotent stem cell research field,” says Dr. Allen Eaves, President and CEO of STEMCEL
