SANTA CLARA, CA — Centrify, a leading provider of Zero Trust Security through the power of Next-Gen Access, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Centrify a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Program Partner Guide and named Centrify to its 2018 Mobility 100 list. The company was also recognized earlier this year in CRN’s 2018 Security 100 list.

The annual 2018 Partner Program 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.

The 2018 Mobility 100 list recognizes the influential contributions of vendors bringing to market innovative mobile products and services. Compiled by a panel of CRN editors, the Mobility 100 list is divided into four categories: Mobile Hardware, Mobile Security and Device Management, Mobile Software and Services, and Mobile App Development. Centrify has additionally been recognized by CRN as one of the 30 Coolest Mobile Security and Device Management Vendors as well as one of the 20 Coolest Identity Management and Data Protection Vendors.

“It’s no secret — successful breaches are escalating. As a result, we’ve seen rapidly increasing demand for Next-Gen Access solutions offering organizations a scalable framework to implement Zero Trust approaches,” said Brian Krause, Director, North American Channels for Centrify and a 2018 CRN Channel Chief. “While this starts out as simple concept, it is not always well understood or easy to go down this road. Our channel partners are vital to helping our customers across all industries understand their options, educate on the various aspects of Zero Trust and ultimately help protect their organization against the primary threat vector: identity.”

Additionally, CRN has named Michele Hayes, senior director of field and partner marketing at Centrify, to its prestigious 2018 Women of the Channel list. The executives who comprise this annual list span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.

“It’s an honor to be recognized along with other influential women leading the channel ecosystem,” said Hayes. “Our partner program enables our channel partners to provide a platform of solutions to help their customers secure enterprise identities against cyberthreats, and we expect to see continued momentum for Centrify Zero Trust Security through the power of Next-Gen Access.”
