In his previous position as Chief Technology Officer and Chief Information Security Officer at Sailpoint Technologies, Darran was responsible for directing the development and communication of SailPoint’s technology strategy and for the overall security and compliance of its products and services. Darran has been in the IT industry for more than 30 years, with over 20 years of that time focused directly on identity and access management, information security and IT governance.
“I have known Darran for more than 10 years and I am delighted to welcome such a pioneering visionary to our extended team”, says KuppingerCole CEO Berthold Kerl. “Apart from his extraordinary technological skills, he also brings extensive experience in guiding successful IAM projects with large-scale enterprise customers. His engagement as an Executive Research Fellow will be a valuable asset for KuppingerCole’s clients.”
Darran commented: “I’m thrilled to be working closely with the KuppingerCole team again. The depth of knowledge, the quality of research and the level of integrity shown by the KC team is industry-defining. My goal is to help extend that body of knowledge by providing a unique perspective on what it means to develop, deploy and then operate IAM technologies as part of a next-generation identity-centric security architecture.”
