Amazon Web Service (AWS)
Unified Identity Management for Amazon Web Services
Centrify provides SSO and automated account provisioning to Amazon Web Service (AWS)
Managing employees’ access to corporate AWS resources for development and test, application hosting or cloud storage shouldn’t be a hassle. IT wants to minimize the work needed to administer shared accounts, password resets, or wondering who’s logged into AWS as admin and broken the latest software build.
Centrify Identity Service makes it easy to manage and keep track of corporate AWS environments. IT can provision Single Sign-on (SSO) using Amazon’s proprietary authentication protocol, or login to the Centrify Cloud portal and configure SAML. With Centrify Identity Service, IT maintains centralized control over access privileges and usage policies, and can monitor activity on AWS. Employees using AWS can login from desktop or mobile devices with zero sign on. Centrify’s Identity Service for AWS decreases the cost of rolling out and managing AWS and other cloud services, while improving user adoption, satisfaction and productivity.
Integration with Active Directory
A five-minute installation securely connects your Active Directory to AWS. Centrify works without replicating sensitive Active Directory data into the cloud or a third-party, and requires no changes to firewall policies. If your business doesn’t use Active Directory or wants 100% cloud-based identity for users outside of the corporate network, Centrify supports that too.
Automated Account Provisioning
When IT creates a new user in Active Directory, Centrify can automatically create an AWS account for them, with the correct authorization, and single sign-on access. When that user leaves, Centrify automatically revokes AWS access — ensuring only the right users have access at all times.
Secure Browser Single Sign-on (SSO) with SAML
Provide one-click access to AWS — without adding another username and password for users to remember. Centrify leverages SAML for secure authentication without passwords, to provide one-click access to AWS and all your other cloud and mobile apps.
Centrify and Amazon Web Services
Centrify and Amazon Web Services have partnered to give AWS users secure single sign-on and provide IT with centralized management and security using existing infrastructure.
