Sponsored by Businesswire

Clear Skye® Inc., the “Better Way to IGA” identity company, today announced that its Clear Skye IGA™ solution has been selected as a finalist in the Innovative Product of the Year award category of the 2020 American Cyber Awards program. The American Cyber Awards were established to shine a spotlight on the most innovative and successful people, teams and products in cybersecurity in America.

Clear Skye is executing on its bold vision of simplifying security by delivering a cost-effective solution for today’s Identity Governance challenges. Clear Skye Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) is the only IGA solution built natively on the ServiceNow Now Platform, and as a result uniquely removes friction from business processes related to governing application access. Organizations can greatly increase the efficiency and effectiveness of IGA programs while leveraging and extending their investment in the ServiceNow Now Platform. Clear Skye IGA delivers the critical IGA capabilities of Identity Lifecycle Management, Access Review, Access Certification and Audit-Focused Analytics without the overhead of standing up another new software silo requiring integration.

Awards program organizer Christina Price said, “This is the inaugural year for these awards and we have been overwhelmed with the number and quality of entrants. Those companies and individuals who have made the finalist shortlist should be pleased with their achievement, as the competition to do so was tough. I know the judges are going to have a hard time selecting the overall winners.”

The American Cyber Awards judges review the industry, searching for those people, companies and products pushing the boundaries in the fight against cybercrime. The esteemed program judges come from varied backgrounds and are some of the most well-regarded individuals within the industry. They will review all applications, deciding winners collectively to be announced Sept. 18.

“It is an honor for our Clear Skye IGA solution to be named as one of this year’s top innovative cybersecurity offerings, and for it to be distinguished from organizations across the globe by the American Cyber Awards distinguished panel of judges,” said Shawn Gross, Clear Skye VP of Marketing. “Delivered on ServiceNow’s Now Platform, our unique IGA solution simplifies security and compliance for our customers and enables them to gain more value from their Now Platform investment.”

While legacy IGA technologies require the addition of another complicated silo to be managed, Clear Skye IGA integrates simply as an additional business process automated by the Now Platform. By providing Provisioning, Access Request, Access Review and Analytics on the Now Platform, Clear Skye customers gain significant efficiencies in the way their IGA programs operate. Additionally, Clear Skye IGA leverages the benefits delivered by other solutions on the Now Platform, such as Configuration Management Database (CMDB); Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC); and Security Operations.
