If you’ve been following along with us, you already know that Clear Skye had a busy Q4 on the events circuit. From speaking sessions, to exhibiting, from here in the US, up to Canada, and across the pond, we headed into the holidays ready to rest and recharge. But with the new year comes new opportunities, and we’re ready to get back in the saddle. And this year, it starts with The Gartner Identity & Access Management Summits.
Gartner IAM brings together experts and peers to share valuable insights and updates on all things identity management and security. This includes everything from privileged access management (PAM), IAM programs and strategy, and single sign-on, to multifactor authentication (MFA), passwordless methods, and more. To kick it off, we’ll hit Gartner IAM UK in London from March 6-7, followed by Gartner IAM North America, taking place in Grapevine, Texas from March 20-22.
This isn’t our first rodeo—we’ve been attending and speaking at Gartner IAM for years and the reason is simple. Identity is foundational to cybersecurity and business operations. But with digital transformation, cloud growth, and remote work, conventional approaches to identity are no longer sufficient. Add an escalating threat environment and a growing number of business apps that must be secured and this becomes even more challenging.
One major problem is that legacy solutions have not kept up with evolving business needs. For too long, identity has been confined to multiple, disconnected, best-of-breed solutions. But there’s a fundamental shift happening. Increasingly, enterprises want identity to live on their existing business platform. This approach not only enables organizations to improve operations and efficiency, but bolsters security in the process.
As such, our Vice President of Solution Architecture Thad Smith will present a session at the North American event titled, “4 Benefits of a Mature IGA Program Leveraging ServiceNow,” taking place at 5:45 PM CST on Monday, March 20 in Theater 2. Thad will break down how a platform-first approach to identity reduces silos between functional business areas, ensures usability, and accelerates time-to-value, all with your existing IT Service Management (ITSM) investment. Clear Skye will also be exhibiting at booth #133.
While we’re not presenting at the UK event, we’ll be available at booth #412. Stop by to learn about Clear Skye and say hi to our Vice President of EMEA Matt Westland, who will be representing. Don’t be shy—we’re always up to chat about all things identity.
We’re with Gartner when it comes to adopting an identity-first security mindset. This means putting identity-based controls at the heart of your organization to improve your security posture as well as threat detection and response. But equally important, it also means making your business run smoother.
While it can be hard to separate the initiatives that drive real value vs. the noise, Gartner IAM is the perfect venue to help IT and security leaders make identity decisions that move the needle. We’re excited to get in on the action, and we hope to see you there!
