Bracknell, UK  — Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats, today announced that leading industry title, Computing, has awarded the Centrify Identity Service (CIS) as the best IAM (Identity and Access Management) solution in the inaugural 2016 Security Excellence Awards. 

Computing's Security Excellence Awards celebrate the achievements of the IT industry's best security companies, solutions, products and personalities. The award follows further recent industry recognition for Centrify, including being named a Leader in Gartner’s 2016 Worldwide Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Management as a Service (IDaaS) and a leader in The Forrester Wave™ for Privileged Identity Management, Q3 2016.

“We are delighted to be on the receiving end of such a prestigious industry award,” said Andy Heather, vice president of Centrify EMEA. “As companies continue to adopt cloud and mobile technology, and embrace BYOD initiatives protecting against the leading point of attack used in data breaches — comprised credentials — is critical. CIS does this by securing and managing access to cloud apps, on-premises apps and mobile devices via single sign-on, user provisioning and multi-factor authentication.”

CIS brings security and peace of mind that is indispensable for IT managers. With CIS, IT provisions new accounts across applications, provides single sign-on to them, securing and managing devices used to access those apps. CIS combines user identity with device context to provide security that scales as needed: allowing/blocking access or challenging for multi-factor authentication based on a comprehensive and flexible set of parameters.
