GSI, Inc.

GSI consultants needed a simpler, more secure way to access client networks through a variety of remote devices. Centrify Zero Trust Privilege Services delivered these capabilities and, in the process, reduced help desk requests and increased productivity.

When you get a clear picture of the breadth of capabilities Centrify Zero Trust Privilege Services provide, you begin to understand just how many security check boxes it ticks. I’m still surprised at the number of issues I was able to address with just this single solution.

Challenge

As an Oracle consulting partner, GSI provides services for a large and rapidly-growing list of clients. Whether they’re helping to execute specific, short-term projects or providing long-term managed services, GSI consulting teams regularly need to connect to client systems from outside the network. But connecting to so many different systems proved to be an ongoing challenge.

Project Drivers

  • Ease access to client networks and decrease the time and effort required to switch from one network to another.
  • Implement MFA with high level of security to boost customer confidence.
  • Reduce the number of help desk calls due to connectivity challenges.
  • Minimize the time required to solve customer issues.

The Solution

GSI leveraged the following Centrify Zero Trust Privilege capabilities to achieve their objectives:

  • AUTHENTICATION
  • SHARED PASSWORD MANAGEMENT
  • SECURE REMOTE ACCESS

Aha Moment

Centrify has helped GSI to secure access to their clients’ remote environments. “Previously, it wasn’t really possible for us to have one resource connected to two separate clients at the same time. But with Centrify we can connect to multiple clients simultaneously, each through a different browser window. And we can wrap multi-factor authentication (MFA) individually around each critical resource to ensure it remains secure.”

A Look Ahead

Centrify Zero Trust Privilege provides fast, easy and secure access to GSI client resources. With Centrify, GSI consultants can now switch from one client network to another with ease- increasing productivity, speeding resolution of customer issues and improving overall service. It’s been so effective that the company decided to implement a policy that all new clients will use Centrify for remote access. It’s written into the contracts.

With Centrify Zero Trust Privilege Services, I saw how one product could address all of our problems. It would help us manage both personal and shared credentials.
