Enterprises struggle with managing how employees use Internet-based file storage. They need to control the spread of sensitive corporate data and prevent security breaches from username and password combinations that may be shared across different apps. Rather than prevent the use of file storage, wouldn’t it be better to support their use, but in a way that secures and protects data? Enterprise-grade identity and access management is key.

Centrify and Box simplify corporate collaboration and eliminate the hassles. Box lets people access their data from anywhere, on any device, and keeps files in sync across devices. Centrify makes it easy to deploy and manage employees’ access to corporate Box accounts.

With Centrify, IT can centrally provision new users, create custom access policies, and automatically revoke access when needed. Thanks to SAML, employees can log in using their existing credentials from desktop or mobile devices without having to remember a unique, app-specific username or password.

Centrify helps lower the cost to roll out and manage Box and other cloud services, and improves user adoption, satisfaction and productivity.

What’s Included?

Integration with Active Directory 

A five-minute installation securely connects your Active Directory to Box. 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 a Box account for them, with the correct authorization, and single sign-on access.  When that user leaves, Centrify automatically revokes Box access — ensuring only the right users have access at all times.

Secure Browser Single Sign-on (SSO) with SAML

Provide one-click access to Box — without adding another username and password for users to remember.  Centrify leverages SAML for secure authentication without passwords, to provide one-click access to Box and all of your other cloud and mobile apps.
