SC Magazine Readers Select Centrify as Finalist for Best Identity Management Solution Award in SC Awards 2014 -- As Determined by Readers, Centrify Server Suite Named One of the Best Identity Management Solutions of the Year for its Robust Active Directory-Based Authentication, Access Control and Policy Management
 


SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 12, 2013 -- Centrify Corporation, the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced that its Centrify Server Suite has been selected as a Reader Trust Award finalist in the Best Identity Management Solution Category for the SC Awards 2014. The Centrify Server Suite is recognized as a top product in the Reader Trust Award competition, which honors best-in-class security products and services as selected by a panel of readers who represent the readership of SC Magazine. Products in this category address the identity management lifecycle in an enterprise environment, including password management, user provisioning and enterprise-access management.

In today’s IT environments, threats or breaches associated with the actions of insiders -- such as employees, IT contractors, offshore IT workers and even partners -- can be malicious or completely unintentional. Linking access privileges and activity back to specific individuals establishes both the control required to minimize security risks and the visibility required to achieve compliance, resulting in operational efficiencies across heterogeneous server environments. However, managing user privileges can be challenging in many organizations since identities and entitlements often reside in disparate silos or are managed locally on servers rather than centrally. The Centrify Server Suite leverages existing directory infrastructure, allowing organizations to identify and eliminate “blind spots” in administrator access across the broadest range of Windows, UNIX and Linux platforms, resulting in one single identity for users and one unified identity architecture for IT.

“Being named a finalist for a Reader Trust Award is truly noteworthy, because it reflects the opinions of real IT professionals and the solutions they use to address the network security problems that plague their companies on a daily basis,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “The SC Awards represent the best of the best in the information security industry and we look forward to recognizing the people and solutions our readers see as stand-outs.”

Vendors and service providers who offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries can enter the Reader Trust Award category. The Centrify Server Suite was selected from hundreds of entries submitted across 18 technology categories. Winners will be selected by a panel representing a cross-section of SC Magazine readership comprised of large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets, including financial services, health care, government, retail, education and other sectors.
