The Security Seal of Approval: SailPoint’s Path to Remote Assessment
In 2018, SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc. – the global leader in Identity Security – launched the SailPoint Certified Professional Program to ensure employees and partners were not only trained but also certified in their roles as implementers of SailPoint’s solutions. To achieve what the company’s program manager Arthur Altman has called the “seal of approval” for certification, SailPoint began a search for a proctoring solution as well as a testing provider that could help the company offer secure high-stakes exams.
SailPoint began its search with a blank slate, having never offered such exams to its employees and partners before. One thing the company did know, though, is that it wanted to offer tests online. As Altman put it, the flexibility and scalability of online tests were critical for the SailPoint team, and it was easy to pursue an online approach given that the company had no legacy relationship with testing centers.\
To address these emerging online assessment needs, the company began speaking with Caveon alongside a long list of test development vendors to help build high-stakes exams online from the ground up. Given Caveon’s existing integration with Examity, the partnership was an obvious match — and SailPoint was able to launch live proctoring with Examity almost immediately after establishing, assembling, and integrating the process for test-takers.
SailPoint soon found that working with Examity proved to be the right partnership at the right time—as the maturation of online proctoring reflected SailPoint’s own growth as an organization. Since the partnership began, Examity has continued to ensure that test candidates never face wait times or capacity issues, as there are always enough proctoring slots available. Anyone can schedule an exam any time that they want, enabling SailPoint to provide not just security, but also flexibility in its remote assessments. Examity’s low proctor to test-taker ratio, along with its strong customer service and 24/7 support, address any challenges in real time and provide a seamless and secure experience for test-takers.
By providing both the organization and its test-takers with exam protection and flexibility, Examity has helped SailPoint offer a program that aligns with its cybersecurity focus, while avoiding putting needless friction in the way of becoming a SailPoint Certified Professional.
