Dubai, UAE — Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats, has been awarded Best IAM (Identity and Access Management) Vendor by Security Advisor Middle East Magazine. Two members of the Centrify local team, Kamel Heus and Jenice Bhatia were presented with the award at a special ceremony on 29 August, which took place at the Habtoor Grand Resort in Dubai, UAE.

The much coveted award follows further recent industry successes 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 The Forrester Wave™ for Privileged Identity Management, Q3 2016.

Andy Heather, Vice President, Centrify EMEA, commented: “The IAM Vendor award was hotly contested and included entries from all of the main vendors, so we are thrilled to be acknowledged with this accolade from such a highly respected publication. Centrify only began working in the region two years ago and opened a local office in 2016. We are fully dedicated and committed to the region, so to have become a recognised leader in such a short timeframe provides further testimony to our unique vision and speed of execution in this space”.

The Security Advisor Middle East Awards recognise individuals, businesses and vendors that have delivered ground-breaking business value through the innovative application of security technologies. Scoring of the awards is by an appointed panel of judges, including security leaders, industry experts and academics.
