Centrify Launches New Tier in Channel Partner Program for National System Integrators and Consulting Partners to Speed Deployment of Cloud-Based Applications

July 13, 2015

ORLANDO – 2015 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference —  Centrify Corporation, the leader in securing identities from cyberthreats, today announced a new category in its channel partner program specifically designed for national system integrators and consulting partners. As part of the new category, Centrify is actively recruiting national system integrators and consulting partners to support and accelerate the deployment of SaaS applications, including Office 365.

Customers of all sizes are rapidly moving to the cloud. However, challenges around provisioning users and applications combined with identity integration pose some of the biggest obstacles to the adoption of cloud applications like Office 365. In particular, the labor-intensive nature of service provisioning and enterprise identity integration is making the deployment of cloud applications an overly complex and time-consuming endeavor for many customers.

Through its new partner category for national system integrators, Centrify can help to quickly and securely drive more Office 365 deployments via its Microsoft Azure-powered cloud identity platform. National System integrators can now use Centrify’s identity platform to quickly provision and deploy Office 365 and other SaaS-based applications while also securing the perimeter for new applications and mobile devices. They can also accelerate provisioning other popular cloud apps like ServiceNow, Box, Salesforce, Docusign, Concur, and thousands of other SaaS and on-premises applications.

“Centrify Identity Service is built on Microsoft Azure, the same platform trusted by Microsoft partners for apps like Office 365. As such, partnering with Centrify provides national system integrators and consulting partners with a level of comfort and credibility as they seek to deliver integration and deployment services,” said Craig Gadberry, senior director of business development, Centrify. “Our new category in our partner program is enabling the secure deployment of new cloud applications through the use of our Azure-based cloud identity platform, while leveraging customers’ existing identity infrastructure investments.”

By partnering with Centrify, national system integrators and consulting partners now have a quick, easy-to-deploy authentication and authorization solution. This is of critical importance to systems integrators and their customers, who are demanding the same level of security in the cloud as they have with their on-premises apps and networks.

“Centrify provides an Azure-based identity platform built for the modern enterprise, allowing customers to efficiently and successfully provision and deploy O365 and other SaaS-based applications,” said Ross Freedman, co-Founder of Rightpoint Consulting LLC. “We believe the new category of their partner program will benefit organizations like ours with a focus and emphasis on services and deployment from on premise to cloud-based environments.”

Centrify is helping partners deliver solutions more quickly to the market. Partners who have recently joined the program include McGladrey, Perficient, Peters & Associates and Rightpoint to name a few.
