Centrify Announces New Analytics Service App for the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework

May 22, 2018

SANTA CLARA, CA — Centrify, a leading provider of Zero Trust Security through the power of Next-Gen Access, today unveiled its analytics service app for the Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW) Application Framework. Combining Centrify’s Analytics Service with the capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform strengthens Zero Trust Security approaches and helps joint customers gain next-level security for their endpoints, networks, servers and applications.

Consuming cybersecurity innovations has become an arduous process. Organizations waste time deploying new sensors every time they want to collect a new piece of data and managing point products rather than improving security controls to stay ahead of attackers. The Palo Alto Networks Application Framework makes it easy to add new security capabilities quickly and efficiently. The framework extends the capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform, with a suite of APIs that developers can use to connect innovative apps with rich data, threat intelligence and enforcement points. Organizations gain immediate security value from apps developed by an open ecosystem of trusted innovators.

Centrify’s analytics service app will utilize data and user information from the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework to further build out more comprehensive user profiles and risk scores for more secure authentication and access results. This enables Centrify, with better risk context, to make access decisions to resources. Centrify Zero Trust Security verifies every user, validates their devices, limits access and privilege, and utilizes machine learning to discover risky user behavior and apply conditional access, all without impacting user experience.
