Centrify for Mobile, SaaS for 2013 Takes Control of BYOD Management

Frank Ohlhorst, eWeek
Centrify brings unified identity management to networks that are supporting multiple mobile devices and applications while providing administrators with a single pane of glass to view the managed devices.

Centrify Tames the Burdens of BYOD and Application Management

Frank Olhorst, eWeek
Bringing mobile devices into the enterprise can be a complex and frustrating process, especially when BYOD (bring-your-own-device) initiatives and multiple mobile OS support is added to the mix. Centrify aims to ease the burden and tame the chaos with two products that work together, Centrify for Mobile 2013 and BYOA (Bring Your Own Application) with Centrify for SaaS 2013. Those products bring a management layer to the world of mobile devices by leveraging active directory in such a way that a common, single pane of glass management console can become an orchestrator for everything mobile. What’s more, end user portals, single sign-on and self service provisioning make it easy for end users to embrace mobile devices yet still have access to corporate and cloud resources securely.

Centrify Suite 2012 Platform Earns Editors' Best Gold Award in Auditing/Compliance

Windows IT Pro

Centrify was named the "2011 Editors' Best Gold Award" winner in the Auditing/Compliance awards category for Centrify Suite 2012's DirectAudit solution.

"DirectAudit 2.0 has truly useful capabilities. Replaying a session, in full-motion video, brings a new degree of insight to auditing sessions because it provides the auditor with an extra degree of context about what the user was doing during his session. Examining only the commands that were executed won't show the auditor what windows the user was opening, and what avenues he was exploring before he actually attempted to execute a command. Plus, Centrify's long track record of integrating UNIX and Linux into AD, and managing them holistically, only adds to its appeal."

"The Centrify Suite provides administrators a way to integrate UNIX, Linux and Mac OS X users into the already existing Active Directory structure for seamless user and policy management across the enterprise. ...
