SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Centrify Corporation, the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced that it has been included on the Silicon Valley Business Journal's Fastest Growing Private Companies list for 2013. Centrify was honored last night at an awards banquet at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif., and will be highlighted in the Oct. 18 issue of the Silicon Valley Business Journal.
Centrify is recognized as one of the region's top private companies after posting its best-ever fiscal year, with record bookings and revenue. In addition to record sales, the company grew its installed base to a total of more than 5,000 customers, the largest market share in its segment of the multi-billion dollar identity and access management market. Centrify now has customers in nearly half of the Fortune 50; in more than half of the top 12 telecommunications companies worldwide, top 10 pharmaceutical companies worldwide, and top five US retailers; and among half of the top 10 technology companies worldwide. The company has also achieved a 97 percent retention rate of customers over the past three years.
"It is rewarding to be recognized as one of Silicon Valley's top private companies by Silicon Valley Business Journal, after Centrify recently posted its best-ever fiscal year and best-ever quarters as a company," said Centrify CEO Tom Kemp. "Moving forward, we expect to continue to move up Silicon Valley Business Journal's Fastest Growing Private Companies list due to our continued innovations around Unified Identity Services that span data center, cloud and mobile; and our continued growth around Centrify's expanding partnerships."
Centrify's continued growth will be further fueled by innovations in cloud and mobile identity, as well as by its OEM software license and marketing agreement with Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd. This OEM relationship has Centrify's technology being embedded in the recently released Samsung KNOX platform for enterprise mobile security, with Centrify providing multi-application SSO for mobile and web apps, as well as management of KNOX mobile containers and devices. The Centrify and Samsung partnership, which is already delivering on the latest KNOX-enabled models of Samsung's GALAXY S4, Note 3 and Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) devices, also includes re-sale of Centrify premium mobile and SaaS Single Sign-on (SSO) offerings via Samsung partners, as well as joint marketing to Samsung customers and partners. Centrify has also significantly expanded its worldwide network of system integrator, value added distributor, and value added reseller partners, and has established key industry partner integrations and platform support, including for Dropbox for Business, Microsoft Office 365, Red Hat Storage, and NetSuite's SuiteCloud computing platform.
