Centrify is redefining the legacy approach to Privileged Access Management by delivering cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege to secure modern enterprise attack surfaces. Zero Trust Privilege mandates a “never trust, always verify, enforce least privilege” approach. Organizations may consider approaching Privileged Access Management by solely implementing password vaults, leaving gaps that can easily be exploited. Zero Trust Privilege combines password vaulting with brokering of identities, multi-factor authentication enforcement and “just enough” privilege, all while securing remote access and monitoring of all privileged sessions.
