Citrix Sharefile

Unified Identity Management for Citrix ShareFile

Centrify provides SSO and automated account provisioning to ShareFile and other cloud apps


Enterprises struggle with managing how employees use Internet-based file sharing sites. Controlling the spread of sensitive corporate data and plugging security breaches from username and password combinations shared across apps are challenges every IT professional knows well. Corporate users are frustrated as well, since they typically have to create and remember unique passwords for every app. 

Centrify and Citrix ShareFile make it easy to deliver secure corporate collaboration, without end-user hassle.  Citrix ShareFile provides enterprise-grade security, allows large file uploads, and can synchronize files across desktop and mobile devices – and Centrify Identity Service makes it easy to deploy and manage access to Sharefile. 

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.

The result: Lower cost to roll out and manage ShareFile and other cloud services, and improved user adoption, satisfaction and productivity.

What’s Included?

Integration with Active Directory 

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

Secure Single Sign-on (SSO) with SAML

Provide one-click, or one tap, access to ShareFile from any device — without adding another username and password for users to remember.  Centrify leverages SAML for secure authentication without passwords, to provide easy access to ShareFile and all your other cloud and mobile apps.

Centrify and Citrix

Centrify and Citrix have partnered to give ShareFile users single sign-on and provide IT with centralized management and security using existing infrastructure.
