What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas…unless we’re talking about the Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit, in which case, we’re screaming it from the rooftops. The event brings together Gartner experts and industry peers to share valuable insights on privileged access management (PAM), identity and access management (IAM) programs and strategy, single sign-on, multifactor authentication (MFA), passwordless methods and more. Taking place from August 22-24 at none other than Caesars Palace, it’s not a show you want to miss.
We’re even more excited because this year, Clear Skye is not only exhibiting, but presenting. Our Vice President of Solution Architecture Thad Smith will lead a session about the benefits of a platform-first approach to identity, saving you time, money, and headaches associated with new tech implementations. Who doesn’t want to learn more about that? You can also find our CRO Luis Almeida and other Clear Skye team members at our booth (#234). Swing by if you want to say hi or learn more.
We know you’ll be distracted by the exhibit floor merch, beckoning Blackjack tables, and flowing cocktails. Let’s get back to the important stuff and dive a little deeper into Thad’s session, “Rise of the Platforms: The Next Generation of Identity on ServiceNow.” The pressure to accelerate digital transformation has left IT leaders with new business demands that require digital trust across every interaction and channel. Identity is a critical part of this, and one effective way to adapt is to connect your identity management solution to your existing business platform.
While identity has traditionally been confined to siloed best-of-breed solutions, there’s a fundamental shift happening in the industry. More than half of IT workers use IT Service Management (ITSM) to govern access and permissions, according to recent research. Thad’s session will explore why the rise of cloud-native, platform-first identity is the future. Attendees will learn how this approach reduces silos between functional areas like HR, IT, SecOps, and GRC, ensures usability, and accelerates time-to-value through the Now Platform. It’s taking place at 1:35 pm PT on Tuesday, August 23—mark your calendar!
The fun doesn’t stop there. On Tuesday evening, we’ll join forces with ServiceNow and our partner Templar Shield to host an IAM cocktail party at Vanderpump Garden. Enjoy some libations and rub elbows with Templar Shield’s identity and risk experts on the NOW platform. After all, life isn’t all diamonds and rosé…but it should be, according to the great Lisa Vanderpump (if you know, you know). Registration is required, so drop us a line if you’re interested in attending.
We’re especially proud to participate in the Gartner IAM Summit on the heels of our recognition as an inaugural 2021 Gartner Cool Vendor in Identity-First Security. According to the report, “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.” We believe that we were selected for our innovative solution, empowering enterprises to better manage IAM through integration with ITSM.
