Clear Skye Closes in on 5x Growth in 2021 with Innovative New Product Features, Notable Executive Hires, and Continued Global Expansion
EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 11, 2022--
Clear Skye® Inc, the “Better Way to IGA” identity company, today announced that it has achieved nearly 5x revenue growth in 2021. This momentum has enabled the company to expand its team and accelerate product innovation, resulting in significant new customer acquisition and continued global expansion. As businesses increasingly seek solutions that align with their current processes, Clear Skye’s software, which runs natively on the ServiceNow platform, offers a unique and seamless approach to identity governance.
The company’s latest product update, Clear Skye IGA 4.2, delivers improved integration and time-to-value with widely-used human resource platforms, Workday and SAP Success Factors. Through easy and accurate low- and no-code business workflows, Clear Skye IGA ensures that IT departments have an automated process for account creation and permissioning across all applications. Additionally, the new self-service portal integrated with ServiceNow and Microsoft Teams provides a familiar experience for supervisors and workers to better manage digital identity and access within their organization.
“The uptick in cloud adoption and economic events, such as ‘The Great Resignation’ have made it more difficult than ever to manage appropriate access and permissions across a highly digital and distributed workforce,” said John Milburn, CEO at Clear Skye. “By paying close attention to our customers’ and prospects’ needs and developing innovative new features that align with existing HR and IT functions, we’re empowering enterprises to put identity at the center of critical business processes, enhancing security and raising platform value. Our record year of growth is a direct testament to that.”
The demand for improved data compliance and workflow management paired with strategic product updates have enabled Clear Skye to increase its customer base 4x year-over-year. Many of the recently released 4.2 features came at the request of customers, further demonstrating Clear Skye’s commitment to delivering the most comprehensive identity governance solution on the market. As a result, company’s including ABB, West Fraser, Blackhawk Network, Premise Health, and more turn to Clear Skye to power their identity management strategies.
“Managing identity natively on the ServiceNow platform was important to us, as it reduces complexity and risk associated with data migrations and transpositions between systems,” said Michael Dobson, Director, Information Security at West Fraser. “Clear Skye enables us to connect our team to the assets and services they need through a single pane of glass view, while also bridging our corporate identity store with security and risk monitoring technologies.”
Both customer success and product innovation can be attributed to the talent and expertise of the fast-growing Clear Skye team. Since July, hiring has increased 70%, including notable executive team expansion. This includes Jackson Shaw, Chief Strategy Officer, a 30-year industry veteran, formerly of Dell, One Identity, and Forcepoint; Jen Ilsley, Vice President, HR and Operations; and Mike Tierney, Senior Vice President, Customer Success. Clear Skye is rapidly hiring in the US and EMEA for growth in the next year. For opportunities, please visit our careers page: https://clearskye.com/careers/overview.
