Centrify Corporation, the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced the availability of the Centrify User Suite, SaaS Edition the industry’s first Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution to provide both robust Active Directory- and/or cloud-based Single Sign-on (SSO), access management, application management and mobile management across any cloud, mobile or on-premise application. With Centrify User Suite, SaaS Edition (“Centrify for SaaS”), organizations eliminate password sprawl for their users and for the first time gain centralized control over access to ever-increasing numbers of SaaS apps and mobile devices in the workplace.

Today’s users have too many passwords, which are inherently weak due to sharing and reuse and are susceptible to phishing and breaches. IT is increasingly reliant on user-managed passwords, and also faces accelerating adoption of SaaS and mobile apps which require multi-factor authentication for enhanced security, with mobile devices representing the best “something you have” factor. In addition, mobile is the new preferred way to access apps, with users mixing work and personal information on their mobile devices, creating the need from an identity and access management perspective that the underlying device be secured and trusted.

Because of this intersection between mobility and identity, IT requires a new user-centric approach that gives it visibility and control over end users’ identity and their mobile access, while enabling those same end users to have seamless anytime/anywhere /any device access. With today’s launch, Centrify for SaaS delivers unified SaaS and mobile management all at a breakthrough price that is similar to competing products that offer only a subset of Centrify’s SaaS management functionality.

“We looked at the vendor landscape for identity management solutions that also support SSO and SAML and it turned out the Centrify Suite not only best addresses these needs, but it also covers other AD management requirements that we were trying to solve,” said Clifford Russell, CISO of Morehouse College in Atlanta, which worked with Centrify partner Corus360, an Atlanta-based technology consulting and solutions company, on the deal.

“Since Centrify covers all our needs around robust audit trails, role-based user management, Mac and Unix AD integration and management tools, our decision to select Centrify was a no-brainer,” Russell continued. “The Centrify Suite will be instrumental in providing the deep AD integration that we need for our Macs and Unix/Linux environments. Centrify will also play a critical role in role-based user management for our Windows systems, which is critical in supporting our new Tier l student manned service desk, and the deep audit trails that are required for regularity compliance regulations.”

With Centrify for SaaS, organizations can now solve users’ password problems and secure the devices that are accessing cloud and mobile apps. End users benefit from the SSO and self-service features that let them locate, lock or wipe their mobile devices, as well as reset their Microsoft Active Directory passwords. IT benefits from Centrify’s easy-to-deploy, cloud-based service that delivers centralized access control and visibility to SaaS app usage and integrated mobile application management with seamless integration to Active Directory or Centrify’s cloud user service. Centrify for SaaS decreases the cost of managing SaaS apps and mobile devices while at the same time improving security and compliance, as well as user adoption, satisfaction and productivity.

With its years of growth in the industry, adoption by more than 5,000 organizations, global expansion, and the broadest distribution made possible by more than 200 channel partners worldwide and its Samsung partnership, Centrify is uniquely positioned to deliver on these important new capabilities announced today. In addition to combining SaaS and mobile management into a single unified product, Centrify is adding significant new functionality including:

• Identity Where you Need It In addition to Centrify’s leading Active Directory integration for SaaS and mobile management, Centrify now supports cloud-only deployments for non-Active Directory users, as well as a hybrid Active Directory and cloud deployment for external users, thus enabling the industry’s most flexible Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) offering. Centrify is unique in not replicating Active Directory to the cloud and out of organizations’ control, even if they choose to manage some of their users via Centrify’s cloud model.

• Industry’s Deepest Mobile Capabilities Centrify is adding built-in multifactor authentication with Centrify Authenticator soft token, one time passcode (OTP) via text/email, and interactive phone calls, to its fully integrated mobile device, container, app and authentication management functionalities. Centrify now also delivers the industry’s most flexible and unique mobile per app authentication policies to restrict access or require additional authentication factors.

• Global Enterprise Support Building on Centrify’s global penetration and leadership, Centrify is the only company in the space delivering global support and regional separation so customers can deploy and keep their data in a preferred region. Centrify also delivers internationalization and localization support with more than a dozen local languages unique in the IDaaS market and global 24x7 support. This week Centrify has also recertified as SOC 2 compliant after a rigorous audit of more than 100 controls defined by established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) related to data security, availability and confidentiality with no noted exceptions.

“The industry is validating our unified approach to SaaS and mobile management with more than 2,000 end user organizations installing the solution since the beginning of the year,” said Corey Williams, Centrify senior director of product management. “With our new class-leading SaaS and mobile management features, our rapidly expanding catalog of more than 2,000 SaaS apps supported, and our global expansion, we are pleased to help thousands of enterprises solve their password problems and reign in the devices used to access their users’ apps.”

Centrify (centrify.com) also offers self-service apps from the MyCentrify User portal; custom branding; and custom, dynamic, and role-based tagging of apps to make it easier and faster to find apps users want to launch. Its SaaS and mobile offerings are facilitated by the Centrify Cloud Service, a multi-tenanted service that provides secure communication from on-premise Active Directory infrastructure to mobile devices, and to the MyCentrify User Portal for secure authentication to SaaS apps. For customers who don’t have Active Directory as a corporate directory, Centrify also offers a fully cloud-based offering for SaaS and mobile management. This new edition rounds out Centrify’s complete solution set for unified identity and security across cloud, mobile and on premise; which also includes the Centrify User Suite, Mac Edition that delivers robust on premise or in-cloud management of Macs and mobile devices, as well as the Centrify User Suite, Premium edition that delivers combined management for SaaS, Macs and mobile devices.

Pricing and Availability
