SailPoint Survey Confirms Enterprises Recognize the Importance of Extending Identity Governance to Files
According to a survey conducted by SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SAIL), the leader in enterprise identity governance , the majority (65 percent) of enterprises polled acknowledge the importance of governing access to data stored in files as part of their overall identity governance strategy. SailPoint polled attendees at this week’s Gartner IAM Summit in London in an informal survey, and the results confirmed this important and growing trend in identity governance.
“At the same Gartner event last year, we polled attendees on their readiness to comply with GDPR,” said Kevin Cunningham, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-founder for SailPoint. “As part of that discussion, we informally asked attendees about governing access to files and found that about 40 percent viewed that as part of their identity governance strategy, so this year’s increase to 65 percent is significant. It’s great to see that we’re trending upwards as more organizations understand the importance of governing access to all applications and all data, no matter where that data lives in their infrastructure. Especially in Europe, as these same organizations spent the last year developing a strategy for GDPR compliance, I think they quickly realized that governing access to files was critical to their identity strategy.”
The risks associated with data stored in files like documents, spreadsheets, presentations and PDFs are significant. The vast majority of this data is created, extracted or downloaded by individual employees and is stored and shared from a variety of locations, often outside the purview of the IT department. Failure to secure this sensitive data stored in files not only increases the number of exposure points in the event of a data breach, but it also increases regulatory risk.
New privacy regulations, including GDPR that goes into effect in May 2018, have introduced stringent requirements for handling personal data and established harsh penalties for failure to adequately secure it. For example, if an employee downloads a document containing customers’ personally identifiable information (PII) from a sales tool and emails that document to a colleague, that PII now exists outside of a protected structured system – a system that usually lives behind the corporate firewall with strong security and identity controls in place – exposing the enterprise to risk and violating regulations like GDPR.
“At SailPoint, we work with mid-market and large enterprises, and protecting sensitive data stored in files is a top priority for our customers. The most effective way to protect this data is to govern access to it,” said Paul Trulove, Senior Vice President of SecurityIQ. “Identity teams have quickly realized that doing so improves security and ensures compliance with regulations like GDPR. Enterprises need to govern all digital identities, across all applications and data, and they cannot afford to leave data out of their identity programs. This week’s survey confirms that IT leaders realize that.”
SailPoint’s identity governance platform enables organizations to discover where sensitive data resides, establish access controls, and gain real-time visibility across on-premises and cloud storage systems, which helps companies better address strict regulations like GDPR. With a holistic identity governance program, identity practitioners can better address security threats, more confidently ensure compliance, and empower the business by making sure the right people have the right access to the right information.

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited Statement on Telecom Italia23.3.2018 07:00 | Pressemelding
Given the momentum behind Elliott's campaign at Telecom Italia to improve both performance and governance, Elliott was not surprised to see yesterday's resignation of seven board members affiliated with Vivendi. Unable to advance any meritorious arguments, the Board has simply abandoned their posts to stall for time. Elliott regards this action as cynical and self-serving, in that it delays the ability of Telecom Italia shareholders to express their votes at the upcoming AGM. This is yet another example of minority shareholder rights at Telecom Italia being abrogated and the continued disregard of corporate governance best practice. Finally, Vivendi should note Elliott's forty-year track record of consistent value creation, and sustained, long-term commitments to expose poor governance and catalyse positive change; Elliott's investment history in Telecom Italia dates back to 1999, well before Vivendi became a shareholder in the Company.

Sofinnova Partners Leads SafeHeal’s €6 Million Series a Financing Round23.3.2018 07:00 | Pressemelding
SafeHeal, an early-stage medtech company specialized in digestive surgery and focused on the development of the Colovac device, announces today that it has closed a €6 million Series A financing round led by Sofinnova Partners. Based in Paris, SafeHeal develops an innovative digestive anastomosis protection device, called Colovac, designed to reduce complications and obviate the need for ostomies for colectomy patients. This technology consists of a minimally invasive and fully reversible implant that remains in place until the body’s natural healing and tissue repair processes are complete, for approximately two weeks, after which it is removed. SafeHeal’s device has the potential to radically transform the market while significantly improve patients’ quality of life by enabling them to resume their normal life without having to bear an artificial anus and wear ostomy pouches for several months.

Redwood Software Announces First Industry Robotic Licensing Model to Revolutionize Transparent Marketplace Pricing22.3.2018 14:59 | Pressemelding
Redwood Software, the pioneer behind ‘The Robotic Enterprise’, today announced the launch of a revolutionary new robotic licensing model, where customers only pay for the robotic services they consume within their business. Available now, this new licensing model allows customers to directly compare the costs of manual work against processes that are robotized. With the unique Robotic Service Charge, Redwood only charges for the delivery of a robotic service, equivalent to a unit of work that can done by a person (send an email, download a report, reconcile two reports etc.). Redwood delivers a catalogue of 35,000 of these ready built robotic services that can be linked together by business users in a visual plug and play interface. End-to-end business processes can be modelled, robotized, tested and deployed without cost and risk.
