Our final event of Navigate '21 kicks off today in APJ. It has been an exciting conference so far, connecting with attendees to understand what their business and security confidence looks like. Hearing from our customers, we know they are confident in their organisations' identity security strategy and are meeting today's complex identity challenges with flexibility, innovation, and expertise. With that, we are delighted to honor our The Identity Security Award winners across the globe, with representation in the Americas, EMEA, and now, APJ.
SailPoint's Identity Security awards are presented to customers who represent one of the company's core values of innovation, integrity, and individuals. Today we honor two customers with the Impact and Individual awards.
Congratulations to the following winners:
Impact Award - Macquarie Bank
The Impact Award is given to a company that is focused on delivering a purposeful identity strategy which has direct, measurable impact to the organization and its users.
With an emphasis on risk management across the organisation, Macquarie Group adopted a federated model for application onboarding and established clear success metrics and real-time reporting for Identity and Access Management. Through actionable insights, Macquarie have provided an effortless means to improving their risk position via federated teams. Their identity program proudly delivers best practice design, quality assurance, and access oversight.
Individual Award - Kim Valois, Flinders University
The Individual Award is given to an identity visionary who recognizes the need for identity to be the backbone of a security strategy and embraces the future possibilities of the industry.
Kim Valois, Chief Information Security Officer at Flinders University, sees identity as not just being the backbone for security, but for their entire digital IT organization. Her strategy at Flinders University is to replace legacy programs, simplify through a SaaS-first approach, and improve end user experience while enforcing optimized security. She has been a wonderful thought leader in APJ, sharing her perspective with other organizations.
