Centrify Delivers Industry's First Unified Identity Solution for SaaS and Mobile Management for the Workplace -- New Cloud-based Identity-as-a-Service Solution Enables Organizations to Solve Users’ Password Sprawl Problems and Secure Devices Accessing Cloud and Mobile Apps
 


Centrify Corporation, the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced the availability of the Centrify User Suite, SaaS Edition -- the industry’s first Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution to provide both robust Active Directory- and/or cloud-based Single Sign-on (SSO), access management, application management and mobile management across any cloud, mobile or on-premise application. With Centrify User Suite, SaaS Edition (“Centrify for SaaS”), organizations eliminate password sprawl for their users and for the first time gain centralized control over access to ever-increasing numbers of SaaS apps and mobile devices in the workplace.

Today’s users have too many passwords, which are inherently weak due to sharing and reuse and are susceptible to phishing and breaches. IT is increasingly reliant on user-managed passwords, and also faces accelerating adoption of SaaS and mobile apps which require multi-factor authentication for enhanced security, with mobile devices representing the best “something you have” factor. In addition, mobile is the new preferred way to access apps, with users mixing work and personal information on their mobile devices, creating the need from an identity and access management perspective that the underlying device be secured and trusted.

Because of this intersection between mobility and identity, IT requires a new user-centric approach that gives it visibility and control over end users’ identity and their mobile access, while enabling those same end users to have seamless anytime/anywhere /any device access. With today’s launch, Centrify for SaaS delivers unified SaaS and mobile management -- all at a breakthrough price that is similar to competing products that offer only a subset of Centrify’s SaaS management functionality.

“We looked at the vendor landscape for identity management solutions that also support SSO and SAML and it turned out the Centrify Suite not only best addresses these needs, but it also covers other AD management requirements that we were trying to solve,” said Clifford Russell, CISO of Morehouse College in Atlanta, which worked with Centrify partner Corus360, an Atlanta-based technology consulting and solutions company, on the deal.

“Since Centrify covers all our needs around robust audit trails, role-based user management, Mac and Unix AD integration and management tools, our decision to select Centrify was a no-brainer,” Russell continued. “The Centrify Suite will be instrumental in providing the deep AD integration that we need for our Macs and Unix/Linux environments. Centrify will also play a critical role in role-based user management for our Windows systems, which is critical in supporting our new Tier l student manned service desk, and the deep audit trails that are required for regularity compliance regulations.” (continued...)
