AUSTIN, TX and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 16, 2017) - RSA Conference - Edgile, the leading security and risk consulting firm, and provider of industry-specific regulatory content libraries, has been named by SailPoint as the 2016 "Partner of the Year" for the Americas.

Edgile's integrated identity, risk, and governance approach enables leading companies, especially in highly regulated industries such as financial services and healthcare, to more efficiently move to the new security model needed by today's modern enterprise. This strategic approach allows top security and risk officers to quickly assess, and fully implement, solutions accelerating access to the right information, governance across systems inside and outside the perimeter, and compliance with industry-specific practices, regulations and laws.

"Edgile's business-aligned approach maps people and process to technology, ensuring highly successful implementations of SailPoint's industry-leading solution."
