SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Centrify Corporation, the leader in unified identity management across cloud, mobile and data center, today announced it has received certification of its integration with ServiceNow. Certification by ServiceNow signifies that Centrify Identity Service has successfully completed a set of defined tests focused on integration interoperability, security and performance. The certification also ensures best practices are utilized in its design and implementation.
Centrify Identity Service for ServiceNow along with Centrify’s integrated enterprise mobility management features are offered free of charge to ServiceNow customers. Centrify’s integration provides secure, one-click sign-on (SSO) access to ServiceNow for both enterprise and IT users along with strong authentication for ServiceNow with built-in multifactor authentication (MFA). Its benefits include:

- Reduced end-user frustration, and increased IT satisfaction
Centrify’s integration has also been certified to offer automated provisioning and de-provisioning of end-users and IT-users to ServiceNow based upon role membership within Active Directory or LDAP directories or Centrify Cloud Directory. Benefits of automated provisioning include:
- Time savings via automatically creating or updating, or de-activating user accounts across apps within ServiceNow
- Improved efficiency by deploying the right apps the first time, along with SSO
- Improved security via automatic role-based permissions within ServiceNow
- Visibility into who has access to which apps, how they received access, and when changes occurred
