SailPoint: Customers Tripled In 2009

Austin-based SailPoint said today that it tripled its customer base in 2009, and had consecutive, record-breaking quarters. The privately held firm--which did not disclose financials--said the growth came due to pain its customers was feeling due to regulatory demands and security breaches. The firm said it now has 23 Global 500 companies on its customer list. SailPoint is venture backed by Austin Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Origin Partners and Silverton Partners. The firm's claims follow similar announcements by the firm over the last year on breaking several quarterly sales records.
