Santa Clara, CA — Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, today announced it has been named the Platinum winner for Best Identity Management Platform category of GSN’s Homeland Security Awards for the second year in a row, beating out CyberArk and others for the top spot of this premier federal award.

Centrify Identity Services protects both commercial and federal organizations and protects in ways that go far beyond typical security solutions, addressing challenges such as digital transformation, intersilo finger-pointing and increasing data awareness and insight. Through a unified, integrated solutions offering, Centrify provides identity services across applications, endpoints and infrastructure for all users, without sacrificing best-of-breed features. Organizations may implement Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS), single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), enterprise mobility management (EMM), privileged access management (PAM) and User Behavior Analytics (UBA) technologies from separate vendors, but disparate solutions leave gaps and are expensive to implement and maintain.

“Our customers’ businesses are a combination of cloud, on premise, on mobile or all the above — which means traditional perimeter-based security is no longer an option,” said Tom Kemp, chief executive officer of Centrify. “It’s an honor to be recognized by GSN for the second year in a row, since we have a proven and differentiated identity platform that is trusted by hundreds of top government agencies to comply with specific requirements of key federal regulations.”

Following the highly-publicized breach of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which exposed the personal data of millions of Americans, the U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Oversight and Government Reform issued a report recommending that federal information security efforts move toward a Zero Trust model. Stating that, “The Zero Trust model centers on the concept that users inside a network are no more trustworthy than users outside a network,” the 2016 report triggered a discussion of Zero Trust across the public and private sectors.

Centrify’s Identity Management Platform is the only vendor with leading solutions recognized in:

Now in its 9th year, the GSN Homeland Security Awards are judged based on a combination of client organization, technological innovation or improvement, filling a recognized government IT security need and flexibility of a solution to meet current and future organizational needs.
