2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant
for Privileged Access Management


Gartner Identifies Centrify as a Leader in the 2018 Privileged Access Management Magic Quadrant

Gartner’s first ever Magic Quadrant for Privileged Access Management1 (PAM) evaluates the key14 vendors based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute. Centrify believes our position as a Leader in the PAM market is due to our ability to deliver an integrated, cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege solution that covers Privileged Identity and Access Management, Privileged Account and Session Management, and Privilege Elevation and Delegation Management. Centrify uniquely enhances ALL of these services with embedded multi-factor authentication, privilege threat analytics and access request and approval workflow.

At its Security and Risk Management Summit in June, Gartner named Privileged Account Management as one of the Top 10 Security Projects for 20182 and in its Forecast Analysis: Information Security, Worldwide, 2Q18 Update, Gartner predicts PAM will be the second-fastest growing Information Security Segment by Spending Growth, in Constant Currency, Worldwide, in 20193.

Centrify is redefining the legacy approach to Privileged Access Management by delivering cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege to secure modern enterprise use cases. Centrify Zero Trust Privilege helps customers grant least privilege access based on verifying who is requesting access, the context of the request, and the risk of the access environment. By implementing least privilege access, Centrify minimizes the attack surface, improves audit and compliance visibility, and reduces risk, complexity and costs for the modern, hybrid enterprise. Over half of the Fortune 100, the world’s largest financial institutions, intelligence agencies, and critical infrastructure companies, all trust Centrify to stop the leading cause of breaches – privileged credential abuse.
