Clear Skye® Inc., the “Better Way to IGA” identity company, today announced that it has earned Most Innovative Company of the Year honors in the 10th annual Best in Biz Awards Program, the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America. Awarded last week, Clear Skye was named a Bronze winner in the “Most Innovative Company of the Year – Small” awards category.
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.
“Corporate resiliency has never been more important than in 2020 and the winning entries in the 10th annual Best in Biz Awards have impressive accomplishments in this area,” said Mark Huffman, Consumer Affairs, having judged six of the last 10 Best in Biz Awards competitions.
Since the program’s inception in 2011, winners in Best in Biz Awards have been determined based on scoring from independent judging panels assembled each year from some of the most respected newspapers, TV and radio outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. Combining top editors’ and reporters’ unparalleled expertise and experience with the objectivity inherent in the journalistic ethos, and further enhanced by the variety of outlets represented, Best in Biz Awards judging panels are uniquely able to determine the best of the best from among hundreds of competitive entries. The 2020 judging panel included, among others, writers from Barron’s, Consumer Affairs, USA Today and Wired.
“It is exciting to cap off a year of innovation and rapid expansion by being recognized with Most Innovative Company of the Year honors by the Best in Biz Awards Program’s distinguished panel of judges,” said Paul Walker, Clear Skye Vice President, Product Management. “Clear Skye is uniquely addressing the growing demand for more effective security that is better aligned with broader digital transformation efforts. Having Clear Skye IGA native to the Now Platform unlocks incredible synergy with other key IT services, amplifying the investment in ServiceNow as a strategic platform and streamlining security workflows across IGA, ITSM, SecOps, and HR.”
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.
