The two products are actually complimentary. Both companies have been very good about staying in their lanes and are their respective market leaders.


CyberArk's PAM solution is aimed at protecting privileged accounts by providing features like vaulting, credential rotation, session monitoring and recording. They also have solutions for DevOps and Secrets management.


SailPoint is an Identity Governance solution and actually manages CyberArk as an application the same way it manages accounts and privileges in SAP, AD, AAD and over 100 more applications. For CyberArk, it can add/change/delete users as well as create safes and assign users to those safes. At a user account certification time, it will show the CyberArk users and their associated privileges and allow the user's manager or other appropriate people to approve or revoke the privileged access. 


SailPoint creates an Identity warehouse so that a user's accounts and entitlements are gathered, managed and reported on in a centralized manner. See Youtube for a quick explanation - SailPoint Identity Governance Integrates with CyberAek Privileged Access Security. 

SailPoint does not provide the vault and session management functions that CyberArk does.
