Grappling to Increase Compliance Posture?

Industry bodies and government regulators have acknowledged that today’s number #1 cause of breaches is tied to privileged access abuse. Privileged credentials represent the keys to the kingdom, allowing for a “free ride” throughout the entire infrastructure. It takes just one compromised privileged credential to impact millions. In turn, internal auditors and regulatory mandates set specific controls and reporting requirements for the usage of these credentials.

However, even mid-sized organizations must comply with a variety of industry and government regulations, which creates its unique challenges when it comes to the collection, aggregation, and attestation of privileged access data.

Often organizations lack the continuous transparency into their compliance posture, leading to audits and certifications becoming a sprint during which the workload for the internal auditors and compliance staff skyrockets.

This often leads to a “sampling” approach, whereby only a subset of specific controls is being evaluated, leaving many blind spots from a compliance and security perspective.

Overall, hunting down answers from a wide variety of stakeholders and assessing diverse data sets takes a toll on efficiency and accuracy.


Centrify has you covered when it comes to assuring continuous transparency into your compliance posture. Leveraging Centrify Zero Trust Privilege solutions help customers improve accountability, conduct forensic investigations and prove compliance with government regulations and industry mandates.

With Centrify you can:

Demonstrate Compliance

Show that security controls are in place, working as designed, and provide proof of compliance. Search and find session recordings by servers, users or custom searches. You can find all sessions for a particular user or server, or for a set of custom criteria, simplifying forensic investigations and pro-actively identifying insider threats or suspicious activity.

Establish Individual Accountability

Record and manage a holistic view of privileged access and activity, and tie everything back to the individual for accountability. Establish a single source of truth for individual and shared accounts — leveraging a common tool set regardless of account type.

Enforce Privileged Access

Prove privileged access is controlled and audited to satisfy regulatory compliance for SOX, HIPAA, FISMA, NIST, PCI, MAS, FISMA, NIST, etc.

Report on Privileged Access and Usage

Gain comprehensive visibility with unified access and activity reporting. Customizable, built-in queries and out-of-box reports for SOX and PCI regulatory compliance provide information on privileged account access controls, password checkout and privileged sessions across Windows, Linux, UNIX and network infrastructure.

There isn’t a regulation that Centrify hasn’t helped us to meet. Today, every time an administrator touches a server, I have a record of it. I can pull a report, print it, and hand it to the auditor.
