Technical Support Policies

Service level priorities, escalation procedures and other support policies

The Centrify Support team is dedicated to providing knowledgeable and timely responses to your support requests. Online, email and phone support are available to all customers as part of our commitment to ensure your success with Centrify solutions.

Support Packages

Centrify offers three customer support packages — Premium+, Premium and Standard — to provide the right level of support to fit your organization's specific needs. See Support Overview for an explanation of the each package's features.

Priority Levels & Response Times

The Centrify Support team understands that you require a timely response to your requests. The following table shows the different issue priority levels, their descriptions, and the guaranteed response time. With Premium Support, you may report a critical issue at any time, night or day, and expect a Technical Support Engineer to begin working on your case based on the priority level of the case.

Note: These are standard case response times and not case resolution times. A response means that we will contact you to 1) acknowledge receiving your issue and 2) get any additional information that we will need in order to assist you. Centrify-enabled Tools are not part of the Centrify Zero Trust Privilege Services and Centrify Support provides support on these products on a “best effort” basis and are not covered in the Support SLA. If you would like to purchase Support for the Centrify-enabled Tools, please get in touch with Centrify Support.

Escalation Procedures

Every issue report is tracked from the time you contact us until we jointly agree that the issue has been resolved. Based on the priority of an issue, Centrify Support escalates customer cases through our organization to ensure your business-critical issues receive a quick resolution.

In general, if you are not satisfied with the responsiveness of our Support staff, the issue can be escalated to your Regional Sales Representative. If you are still not satisfied, the issue can be further escalated to the Vice President of Worldwide Sales.

Product Updates

Purchasing either Premium or Standard Support entitles you to product updates at no additional charge during the term of the maintenance contract for all Centrify products licensed and covered by maintenance.

Our Mission & Our Pledge

The Centrify Support team's mission is to work with you as a team to ensure you receive maximum value from your investment in Centrify solutions. Our pledge is to ensure your complete satisfaction with our service: a case isn't closed until you say it is.
