Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Centrify for IDaaS and PIM Leadership

March 7, 2018

Today Frost & Sullivan, a leading analyst firm and growth partnership company, announced that Centrify has earned the North American Product Leadership Award for its Next-Gen Access Solution for Zero Trust Security. The report specifically noted Centrify’s success as a security company comes by challenging traditional approaches to security and using a unique philosophy to address the problem. Centrify helps its customers identify and follow a set of best practices that are grounded in Zero Trust Security—through verifying all users, validating their devices, and limiting access and privilege—to reduce risks related to breaches.

The author of the report, Sankara Narayanan, Senior Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, notes:

Centrify’s unique product leadership has been not only to deliver one aspect of securing enterprise identity but to secure identities everywhere and in one platform that can enable its customers to stop breaches coming from anywhere.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality that is gaining rapid market acceptance:

Centrify has ramped up its enterprise security capabilities to render unmatched product customer value and consolidate its position in the IDaaS and privileged identity management market

The author goes on to note that Centrify has uniquely combined Identity as a Service (IDaaS) and Privileged Identity Management (PIM) into a single and comprehensive platform for solving the primary cyber security challenge facing customers today — compromised credentials:

Centrify has gained a competitive edge by solving another critical challenge faced by enterprises, which is their reliance on point solutions that introduce security gaps, by offering its end-to-end, integrated, and comprehensive platform. By securing all enterprise entities on a unified platform, as opposed to relying on disparate/point solutions, Centrify’s customers can securely manage their entities better, achieve a lower total cost of ownership (TCO), and reduce the risk of breaches.

Centrify’s Next-Gen Access is the only industry-recognized solution that uniquely converges Identity-as-a Service (IDaaS), enterprise mobility management (EMM) and privileged access management (PAM). Centrify has already received recognition by other analysts for leadership in IDaaS, PIM and EMM. This award is the first of its kind to award a vendor with leadership in both IDaaS and PIM within a single report.
