Santa Clara, CA — Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Centrify a 5-Star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide, for the second consecutive year. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

To determine the 2017 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

The Centrify Channel Partner Network is a global network of value-added resellers, system integrators and distributors. It helps partners to achieve growth and profit by delivering identity services that help customers strengthen security, meet compliance requirements, reduce IT expenses, and extend cloud and mobile technologies across the enterprise.

“For solution providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits.”

“We’re thrilled to earn a 5-Star rating in CRN’s 2017 Partner Program Guide,” said Nathan Adams, Centrify’s director of global channels. “Centrify is committed to stopping breaches by protecting access to applications and infrastructure for all users, from any device, anywhere. Our growing channel ecosystem enables us to deliver these critical security solutions to a high-growth market and secure access to the modern boundaryless hybrid enterprise.”
