Doug Simmons – Principal Consulting Analyst
Gary Rowe – CEO, Principal Consulting Analyst
Most large enterprises need to solidify their Identity and Access Management (IAM) platforms to be competitive, responsive, and secure in a world that is becoming largely digital. This is the third in a series of research reports that provides independent analysis of the leading IAM platform providers. Our first report was on Microsoft’s Entra program, our second IAM platform report focused on Okta and this report focuses on three major IAM/Identity Governance vendors under the control of the private equity firm Thoma Bravo. Thoma Bravo is one of the largest software investors in the world with a 40+ year history and over $120 billion in assets under management as of Q3/22. The company made significant waves in the IAM software sector in 2022 by acquiring three foundational IAM companies that many of our enterprise customers have used over the years. They are:
- SailPoint: acquired for approximately $6.9 billion in August 2022.
- Ping Identity: acquired for approximately $2.8 billion.in October 2022.
- ForgeRock: acquisition to be completed in early 2023 for $2.3 billion, announced in November 2022.
In this in-depth report, we’ll review Thoma Bravo’s current portfolio of IAM and related products/services. Then, we will evaluate these offerings as specific IAM capabilities within the TechVision Reference Architecture for IAM. We’ll also explore how these assets can be optimized in building a next-generation IAM/IGA platform. We close with recommendations for organizations considering Ping, ForgeRock, or SailPoint as key foundational vendors to support the execution of their IAM strategies.
