SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Centrify Corporation, the leader in unifying identity management across cloud, mobile and data center, today announcedthat Holly Adams, head of channel marketing for Centrify, has been named to The Channel Company’s prestigious 2015 CRN® Women of the Channel. The annual list honors outstanding female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors, solution providers and other women prominently involved in the IT channel ecosystem for their successes and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward.

Adams is responsible for developing channel strategy as it relates to Centrify's cloud, mobile and data center offerings. She launches results-driven joint marketing programs, including webinars, seminars and in-person events, to meet quarterly lead, opportunity and pipeline metrics.

“These executives have made a lasting mark on the industry, expanding the breadth of influence in the technology channel,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the Women of the Channel, and celebrate their innovative contributions and commitment to the IT channel community.”

Adams played a critical role in the development and execution of the successful launch of the Centrify Channel Partner Network (CCPN), a global network of value-added resellers, system integrators and distributors. The CCPN helps partners to achieve growth and profit by delivering unified identity management solutions that help customers strengthen security, meet compliance requirements, reduce IT expenses, and extend cloud and mobile technologies across the enterprise.

In 2014, Centrify more than doubled its channel revenue with contribution from new and existing partners, and also announced the world’s first subscription-based managed service provider (MSP) program. Through Centrify’s partner network, businesses of all sizes can leverage Centrify’s unified identity management technology in a manner that suits the size and scope of their business at any given time.

“It’s an honor to be named to The Channel Company’s prestigious 2015 CRN Women of the Channel list," said Adams. “At Centrify, we tightly align with our partners and deliver on the promise of unified identity management that is easily integrated, readily adopted and highly regarded.”

This year’s Women of the Channel were carefully reviewed and selected by the editors of CRN based on their accomplishments and the influence they wield over the technology channel. The Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of CRN, and online at
