SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Centrify Corporation, the leader in unified identity management across cloud, mobile and data center, today announced that it has been included on the Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Fastest Growing Private Companies list for 2014, marking the second consecutive year the company has received this distinction. Centrify was honored on Oct. 23 at an awards banquet at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif.

Centrify is recognized as one of the region’s top private companies after posting another year of record sales. This growth centered on strong customer demand for Centrify’s unique end-to-end solution, which features comprehensive privileged identity management for on-premises servers, as well as Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) for SaaS and mobile applications and devices.

Centrify helps organizations see greater end user productivity and security by unifying their identity management requirements and delivering advantages such as single sign-on (SSO) and multifactor authentication to business apps, regardless of a user’s physical location or device preference. Additionally, Centrify helps to improve IT efficiency, better address regulatory compliance, and better secure the hybrid cloud and on-premises IT environments, as well as lower total cost of ownership for identity infrastructure.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of Silicon Valley Business Journal’s fastest growing private companies for the second year in a row,” said Centrify CEO Tom Kemp. “We expect to keep climbing the list in 2015 by continuing to innovate around the intersection of IT and security, where we work hard to bring major productivity and security advantages to customers across their cloud, mobile and server environments.”
