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 named Centrify to its annual Security 100 list. The recognition highlights innovative security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Security Analytics; and Web, Email and Application Security. The companies on CRN’s Security 100 list have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.

In addition to recognizing security technology vendors for outstanding products and services, the Security 100 list serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the IT security market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.

“Centrify is challenging the status quo, encouraging companies to implement a modern, Zero Trust Security model that verifies every user, validates their devices, and limits access and privilege,” said Brian Krause, Director, North American Channels for Centrify. “We are honored to be named to CRN’s Security 100 list, as we continue to rethink security, drive fundamental change that focus on identity as the primary attack vector, and deliver a broad set of opportunities to our partners to grow their businesses.”

Centrify Zero Trust Security through the power of Next-Gen Access unifies single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), mobility management, privilege management and behavior analytics in an end-to-end platform. By converging Identity-as-a-Service and privileged access management, Centrify verifies both users and their devices and ensures that access to services are authenticated, authorized and encrypted.

“The core elements of today’s businesses, both large and small, depend upon robust and reliable cybersecurity solutions,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Unprecedented streams of data, the sweeping transition to cloud computing, vast networks of wireless systems, the rapidly growing Internet of Things—all these advances necessitate increasingly complex and adaptive security measures. CRN’s 2018 Security 100 list recognizes top vendors that are meeting this extraordinary demand with the most innovative security technologies on the market, enabling businesses to grow uninterrupted.”
