“It was your typical ‘build vs buy’ conversation. We don’t want to be in the business of managing a single sign-on solution; we want to be in the business of integrating applications.”
CENTRIFY IDENTITY SERVICE CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT
Spun off from its parent company, Dynatrace leveraged Centrify to rapidly build out a cloud-based identity infrastructure that would provide 2,000 employees with single sign-on access to apps across all devices. The company was also able to quickly onboard new employees gained in an acquisition to ensure immediate productivity.
In addition to Office 365, key applications include Samanage, UltiPro, NetSuite and Salesforce.com. Every employee uses at least one mobile device.
Overall, the response from employees has been positive. “Users have a much easier single sign-on access to all the apps they require,” Politi said. Dynatrace is currently developing policies that will govern its enterprise mobile management (EMM) roll out in the near future. “EMM is going to be crucial for us because every employee is using at least one mobile device,” Politi said.
- Easily transition 2000 employees after spin off from parent company
- Eliminate need for on-site infrastructure and reduce management overhead where possible
- Deploy single-sign on for secure identity and password consolidation
- Provide secure enterprise mobility management (EMM)
When Dynatrace acquired a competitor shortly after the spinoff from its parent company, new accounts were provisioned and new employees were rapidly onboarded using Centrify’s self-service password capability.
“With Centrify, we had Office 365 deployed in half the time it would have taken using AD FS. If we had gone with AD FS and deployed servers manually we would have to be concerned about hardware placement, the DMZ setup, and other details that would have added extra cost and time we didn’t have” says Politi.
