San Francisco (Samsung Developers Conference), Oct. 28, 2013 -- Centrify Corporation, the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced the Centrify Alliance Partner Program (CAPP), providing developers, cloud and mobile ISVs the ability to jointly develop integrated solutions leveraging Centrify’s leading Unified Identity Services to provide secure access to cloud and mobile apps for mutual customers. In addition, by formalizing its partnering efforts via CAPP, Centrify and its ISV partners such as Dropbox and Zoom are now better able to drive joint go-to-market activities. Centrify is making this announcement from its pavilion at the Samsung Developers Conference, where it is demonstrating how ISVs and mobile application developers can leverage its cloud-based mobile authentication service that has been selected by Samsung as a built-in Zero Sign-on solution for its Samsung KNOX platform.
As Centrify’s business success and solution set have broadened across the data center, cloud, and mobile markets, leading technology companies are approaching Centrify for partnerships to address joint customer demand in the SaaS and mobile management markets. For example, companies such as Dropbox and Box now support the Centrify Mobile Authentication Services (MAS) SDK to provide their customers with Centrify “Zero Sign-on” to their rich mobile apps. There are also more than 2,000 cloud applications integrated with Centrify to provide Single Sign-on (SSO) and role-based access control. This further builds upon Centrify’s OEM relationships with a number of ISV partners who embed Centrify SDKs in their on-premise products for Active Directory enrollment and advanced security and authentication for their products.
“Centrify has long partnered with the world’s leading technology companies, and our new partner program allows more companies and developers to rely on Centrify’s cloud platform to leverage our leading SaaS and mobile security features that provide centrally managed policies to securely access and authenticate users to partners’ leading SaaS applications, regardless of device or location,” said Shreyas Sadalgi, Centrify Vice President of Business Development. “Improved usability with SaaS application Single-Sign-on and mobile app Zero-Sign-on, along with user and mobile device self-service features, enhances security of our partners’ SaaS and mobile solutions by uniquely reducing passwords, securing identity, and authenticating access through Active Directory.”
With the launch of the CAPP, Centrify CAPP partners can now more formally engage with Centrify and leverage its leading cloud and mobile identity solutions, as well as its industry expertise, to jointly develop and deliver integrated solutions for the SaaS and mobile markets, helping partners discover and grow new revenue streams. In addition, CAPP partners have access to Centrify training, licenses and publications; joint development and integration testing; sales and marketing resources; and a wealth of information via Centrify’s secure partner portal. Developers and ISVs can determine their level of involvement through three levels of Centrify CAPP partnerships: (continued...)
