The way Gartner defines a Cool Vendor is a small company offering a technology or service that is:
Innovative — enables users to do things they couldn’t do before.
Impactful — has or will have a business impact, not just technology for its own sake.
Intriguing — has caught Gartner’s interest during the past six months.
We’ve long admired the recognized companies, as we know the breadth and depth of knowledge on technology and business synonymous with the Gartner name. That’s why we’re thrilled to be named an inaugural 2021 Gartner Cool Vendor in Identity-First Security. The new category recognizes IAM vendors that 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.
At Clear Skye, we pride ourselves on offering a solution that is both frictionless to implement and use and maximizes customer's existing investment in the ServiceNow platform. To be honored among other up-and-comers in the security space for our unique and effective approach to managing digital identities is a real honor. In fact, it's one we intend to use as motivation to continue to deliver on our promise of giving businesses a 'better way to IGA.'
