What is SailPoint IdentityIQ?
IdentityIQ is SailPoint's identity and access management solution for enterprise customers who currently prefer an on-premises deployment. IdentityIQ helps your users effectively participate in a wide variety of IAM processes – including automated access certifications, policy management, access request and provisioning, password management, and identity intelligence. And, with resource connectors included as part of the base platform, it delivers out-of-the-box integration to a wide variety of applications running in the datacenter or the cloud.

What are the Key Components of IdentityIQ?
IdentityIQ provides the following key components to automate access certifications, policy enforcement, and the end-to-end access request and provisioning processes:
  • Compliance Manager Streamline’s compliance controls and improves audit performance through automated access certifications and policy enforcement.
  • Governance Platform centralizes identity data, roles, business policy and risk modeling to support compliance initiatives and user lifecycle management.
  • Identity Intelligence transforms technical identity data scattered across multiple enterprise systems into centralized, easily understood and business-relevant information including dashboards, reports and advanced analytics.
  • Lifecycle Manager provides self-service access request and lifecycle event management to simplify and automate the creation, modification and revocation of user access privileges.
  • User Provisioning provides flexible options for implementing changes requested by the business during compliance and lifecycle management processes.
What are the types of Provisioning?
Types of provisioning include:
Automated provisioning: In this detecting new user record from the Authoritative Source or HR System and automatically provisioning those users with appropriate access on target applications.
Self-service provisioning: In this allows users to update their profile data and request an account or request an entitlement and manage their own passwords.
Workflow-based provisioning: In this gathers the required approvals from the designated approvers before granting a user access to an application or data.

What is Password Manager?
  • IdentityIQ Password Manager delivers a simple-touse solution for managing user passwords to reduce operational costs and boost productivity.
  • Self-Service Password Management
  • Strong Password Policy Enforcement and Sync
What is Account Mappings?
Account Mapping page to setup and map specialized accounts. Specialized accounts can be any accounts that justify special handling throughout your enterprise. For example privileged accounts such as Root, Administrator, or SuperUser, and service accounts that access a specific service or function on an application. Any attribute extended on this page is available for searching on the Identity Search page. You can assign icons to extended attributes to highlight these accounts in certifications and the detailed identity pages. Specialized account attributes can be modeled to handle any concept using simple one‐to‐one mapping and rules. This section describes two of the most common scenarios.
Use the Account Attributes page to view the extended account attribute information for your configuration. Use this page to set up specialized account attributes such as Privileged and Service, and any other extended attributes for use in certifications and searches.

What is Host configuration?
The Host Configuration page to monitor active servers running an IdentityIQ instance. This is also known as an IdentityIQ cluster. The data provided on this page informs system administrators of the current workload each server is maintaining.

Define Role Configuration?
Role Configuration page to define custom extended role attributes and role types. The extended attributes are displayed with the rest of the role information throughout the product. An example of an extended role attribute might be role status. Role type is used to configure roles to perform different functions within your business model. For example, type might be used to control inheritance or automatic assignment of roles.

How do you handle multi-threading?
If you are planning to have a lot of receivers, I would not use the ONE-THREAD-AND-QUEUE-PER-RECEIVER approach. You could end up with a lot of threads not doing anything most of the time and I could hurt you performance wide. An alternative is using a thread pool of worker threads, just picking tasks from a shared queue, each task with its own receiver ID, and perhaps, a shared dictionary with socket connections to each receiver for the working threads to use

What tools have you used in past to monitor code?
JRockit is a complete solution for Java SE which includes a high-performance JVM, profiling, monitoring and diagnostics tools, and can be used for predicting latency in Java applications
Eclipse Memory Analyzer is a Java heap analyzer that helps you find memory leaks and reduce memory consumption. It is more suited for being a general purpose toolkit to analyze Java heap dumps and calculation of its size.  It can be used also reports leak suspects and memory consumption anti-patterns.

What is Identity Intelligence?
Identity Intelligence is transforms technical identity data scattered across multiple enterprise systems into centralized, easily understood and business-relevant information including dashboards, reports and advanced.

What is IdentityNow?
IdentityNow is the SaaS (Software as a Service) solution for IdentityIQ making SailPoint the only manufacturer offering IAM as a service. The solution allows user provisioning, password management and single sign-on (Single Sign On). IdentityNow is designed for complex hybrid IT environments and unifies identity management processes across all environments. The basis is the encryption and security technology of SailPoint.

What is Identity Warehouse?
It is  the  core  of  the  Governance Platform serving as the central repository for identity and access  data  across  all  enterprise  IT  applications  in  the  data  center  and the  cloud. The warehouse is populated by importing user data from any authoritative source (e.g., HRMS) and user account and entitlement data from business applications, databases, platforms, and other systems. It is designed to scale and rapidly import access data from large numbers of applications and users by leveraging out-of-the-box connectors or via flat files.

What are the features of SailPoint IdentityNow - Cloud Identity Governance Service?

What is SecurityIQ?
SecurityIQ is SailPoint’s access governance solution for all unstructured data, whether on-premise or in the cloud. All enterprise applications and data can be centrally managed and controlled. SecurityIQ identifies the access to the data, thus minimizing the risk of unauthorized use. This way, the software helps to meet legal requirements and saves you a significant amount of time. The responsibility for managing the access privileges is shifted away from IT administration toward the technical decision.

What are the types of Certifications in Sailipoint?
Certifications in Sailpoint IQ can be divided into two categories. First on the basis of their “Time period of Execution” and second on the basis of their “functionality”.
Let’s first discuss their classification on the basis of their “Time period of Execution”
Certifications can be scheduled to run periodically or continuously. Continuous certifications focus on the frequency with which individual items need to be certified while periodic certifications focus on the frequency with which the entire certification needs to be completed.
Certifications can also be configured to run based on events that occur during an identity life-cycle For example, it might be configured to automatically generate a certification when an identity’s manager changes or any job change event or can be even creation of new identity etc.
Periodic Certification: Periodic certifications are scheduled to run on a periodic bases, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annually. These periodic access reviews provide a snapshot view of the identities, roles, and account groups. Periodic certifications focus on the frequency with which entire entities (identities, roles, account groups) must be certified.
Continuous Certification: Continuous certifications focus on the frequency with which individual items (roles, entitlements, and violations) contained within identity‐type certifications need to be certified and not on the frequency with which the entire certification needs to be performed. Continuous certifications do not use the sign off method.
