EMERYVILLE, Calif.--()--Clear Skye® Inc., the “Better Way to IGA” identity company, today announced it has been named a Cool Vendor in the 2021 Cool Vendors in Identity-First Security report by Gartner. The IAM vendors presented in this research demonstrate critical, identity-first approaches that support rapid assessment of trust, enhanced modes of authentication, and cloud access.

As digital transformation and cloud adoption proliferates, so too does the need to constantly manage proper access and privileges within an organization. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated this challenge, as businesses adapt to increasingly remote and hybrid work environments, unencumbered by traditional IT processes. Clear Skye’s innovative solution empowers enterprises to more easily manage IAM through integration with ITSM.

While legacy Identity and Governance Administration (IGA) solutions require the addition of another complicated silo to be managed, Clear Skye integrates with existing IT systems simply, as an application within ServiceNow’s Now Platform. With identity lifecycle management, access request, access review, and workflow management capabilities, Clear Skye customers gain significant operational efficiencies and insights within their IGA programs.

"We’re excited to be named a Gartner Cool Vendor in Identity-First Security," said John Milburn, CEO at Clear Skye. “By leveraging the ServiceNow Platform, our unique business model enables us to extend users’ investments in the cloud, offering them a frictionless, cost-effective way to manage digital identities.”
