Certification and Approval Recommendations

The SailPoint Identity Platform provides insightful recommendations for reviewers/approvers when certifying and approving access utilizing both machine learning and data analysis.

Overview

Certification and approval recommendations enhances the overall experience for your reviewers/approvers by making them more efficient and more confident when approving, revoking, or denying access.

Understanding Recommendations

The SailPoint Identity Platform uses common access amongst peers, also known as Peer Group Analysis, to recommend whether access should be granted, revoked, or maintained. Recommendations are provided for fine grain entitlements included in certifications and access request approvals.

You might see the following recommendations:

  • Yes - More than 70% of the identities within the peer group have the access
  • No - 70% or below of the identities within the peer group have the access or the entitlement is unique to the identity's peer group
  • None - The identity does not belong to a peer group

Reviewers/approvers can instantly view if a recommendation is available or not and can also filter based on the recommendation.

Understanding Peer Group Analysis

Peer group analysis is a machine learning model that analyzes data based on groups.

The SailPoint Identity Platform uses peer group analysis in its AI Services to organize your identities into peer groups based on common entitlements, and simplify the creation and maintenance of a dynamic identity governance program.

Peer groups are constantly evolving with your data and updated on a daily basis.
