SANTA CLARA, CA — Centrify, a leading provider of Zero Trust Security through the power of Next-Gen Access, today announced it has been recognized as a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Access Management, Worldwide. Gartner defines Access Management as technologies that use access control engines to provide centralized authentication, single sign-on (SSO), session management and authorization enforcement for target applications in multiple use cases (e.g., B2E, B2B and B2C).
“We take great pride in being named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Access Management, Worldwide as customer satisfaction is key to our mission and continues to shape our products and services,” said Tom Kemp, CEO of Centrify. “We believe this recognition underscores our commitment to support our customers and to provide a Zero Trust Security approach powered by Next-Gen Access.”
The 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Access Management, Worldwide is one of several recognitions for Centrify this year. Whereas the Customers’ Choice distinction is a recognition by customers, the company’s Next-Gen Access solutions were also recently recognized by industry analysts and received the highest product scores in the “Workforce Users Accessing SaaS” and “Business-to-Business (B2B)” use cases in the Gartner, Inc. 2018 “Critical Capabilities for Access Management, Worldwide” report.
The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is a recognition of vendors in this market by verified end-user professionals, taking into account both the number of reviews and the overall user ratings. To ensure a fair evaluation, Gartner maintains rigorous criteria for recognizing vendors with a high rate of customer satisfaction. To earn this distinction, a vendor must have a minimum of 50 published reviews with an average overall rating of 4.2 stars or higher.
Centrify customers contributed the following reviews to Gartner Peer Insights to drive the distinction:
- “We've seen multiple times where Centrify has stepped in and blocked erroneous logins and prevented spoof attacks and phishing attempts. Their portal provides a great way to manage endpoints and lock down accounts.” – Information Technology Director in the Manufacturing Industry
- “The product and professional services exceeded my expectations. We used the cloud offering, and total install and rollout time was less than a week.” – IT Manager in the Finance Industry
- “We use Centrify for SAML SSO as well as joining Macs to our Domain. Their documentation is amazing and always has step by steps with screenshots. Their support team is always really responsive.” – IT System Administrator in the Services Industry
Centrify’s approach to access management is rooted in Next-Gen Access, its comprehensive portfolio of Single Sign-on (SSO), Adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), User Behavior Analytics (UBA), and Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions.
