“Centrify gives Rémy Cointreau the agility we need as an international company. All of our apps are available from a central portal, our employee identities are secured and we’ve merged the experience across cloud and mobile.”

CENTRIFY IDENTITY SERVICE CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT
When Chief Technology Officer Sébastien Huet joined Rémy Cointreau in 2015, one of his primary objectives was to help transform the company into a more agile organization. A key component of that transition would be the upgrade of it’s IT infrastructure to provide more flexibility, respond better to changing worker habits and deliver exceptional support for the business.
One of the key goals in Rémy’s cloud transformation project was to ensure users could access anything from a mobile device that they could access from their laptops -- in the same easy way. “We have many cloud apps from many different vendors and Centrify provides a portal through which users can get access to all those applications with a click or tap, from any device. In effect, it ties all the apps together and gives them the feel of one large, unified solution.”
Rémy is looking forward to implementing Centrify’s multi-factor authentication next. “For the same reasons, it makes sense to leverage the Centrify solution to the furthest degree possible,” he says. “The selection of Centrify was a strategic one, squarely focused on increasing our flexibility. But the ability to reduce our costs through the displacement of adjacent products can’t be overstated.”

The mobile device management capabilities came as a pleasant surprise that allowed Rémy to consolidate solution providers and save money.
Rémy has many cloud apps from a multitude of different vendors and Centrify provides a portal through which users now have secure, one-click access to all the applications they need. Employee productivity has increased, IT challenges have been reduced and the company is more agile than ever before.
