Centrify has been working with major analyst firms to evangelize our vision for securing cross-platform IT environments by leveraging Active Directory for centralized identity and access management. Here is a sampling of recent analysts, along with links to webinars and podcasts in which they have collaborated with Centrify to explore the business and technical benefits of leveraging Active Directory.
Centrify is a company to watch because of its "established, proven record of accomplishment" in the IAM space.
IDC's Sally Hudson has written a vendor profile titled "Centrify Private Vendor Watchlist Profile: Bridging Linux/Mac/Mobile Platforms for Increased Security and Managed Access Control via Microsoft AD." The study concludes that Centrify is a company to watch because of its "established, proven record of accomplishment" in the IAM space. Hudson notes that:
"Centrify's ability to grow out and expand its product line to meet the emerging needs of the customer has been insightful and impressive. Centrify has successfully identified existing and emerging customer pain points, such as management, audit, and PIM, and focused on delivering appropriate solutions."
She also notes that Centrify's solutions will appeal not only to organizations that need "integrated identity management and granular access control solutions in mixed AD/Linux/Mac/mobile environments," but also to "cloud service providers as they look for ways to host and provide services to a wide variety of industries with compliance and audit regulatory mandates."
Here is a sampling of publications by other analysts writing about Centrify and its solutions.
"The Centrify recipe is simple: make the tools you already count on more productive by extending their reach and capabilities. Centrify layers its authentication, access control and auditing sauce on top of ubiquitous Active Directory to make this happen. This makes Centrify one of those rare companies that figured out how to add a whole lot of additional value without a lot of ripping, replacing, re-architecting or training."
"Centrify's DirectAudit fills an important role in securing systems from insider threats and demonstrating compliance to auditors. By tying UNIX and Linux system auditing into the established Microsoft management environment, Centrify further centralizes the administration of security and auditing in a way that increases the robustness of both."
"For enterprises using or considering Active Directory deployments, Centrify's DirectControl Suite can enable compliance and deliver high levels of business benefit and ROI."
"By integrating non-Microsoft systems with Active Directory, Centrify helps organizations comply more confidently with government regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, because enterprise security policies can be enforced across all of their distributed systems equally."
