One of the things I love about partnering with Amazon Web Services is how often they are in front of their user community. In addition to their large, annual user conference called RE:Invent, AWS hosts several smaller regional summits throughout the year. As an APN partner, Centrify had the opportunity to participate in last week’s AWS Summit in San Francisco. We were lucky to be able to visit with a nice cross-section of AWS users — users across multiple industries, many of which were in the Fortune 1000. It was great meeting with these organizations and across the board, companies…

With over 320,000 customers worldwide, SAP is one of the most critical business applications in the market. Because of the information that it contains, it is also one of the most targeted applications and systems for cyberthreats. Over the past few years, the SAP landscape has expanded beyond legacy ERP systems into technologies such as cloud, mobile, big data and the Internet of Things (IoT), while at the same time broadening the attack surface for SAP applications. According to a Ponemon Institute survey released earlier this year: Two of three SAP platforms were likely breached between 2014 and 2015. 75%…

We just completed another productive week at SAP TechEd and would like to thank the many Centrify customers who visited with our team and reaffirmed that Centrify is a vital to securing their SAP environments. Our customers inspire us to work harder each day, and we will continue to do our very best to maintain their confidence and trust. After attending the conference, and as we look ahead, Centrify understands these three realities of the SAP community: SAP systems are under constant attack: Since SAP is a critical business application in an enterprise containing some of the most crucial business data, intellectual…

Have you ever wondered what happens to all the information that is generated by computers as they log the activities of users doing things? Every click, every command, every application interaction and every error is recorded as these actions occur. Sometimes these “events” figuratively do go on a road to nowhere… they just sit unanalyzed on a server somewhere waiting to fill up the disk with their eventual growth. The answer to the first sentence is that the information lies in these stacks of data, and that is a problem. As soon as you say problem — here comes software to the…

Centrify has been working with Cloudera for years around our many joint customers and a partnership embracing the product strengths of both companies. Building on this foundation, Cloudera and Centrify today announced that Centrify has joined the Open Network Insight (ONI) project.

ONI provides an open data model for Network, and with the addition of Centrify to the project will be extended to include identity. By extending ONI’s open data model into identity, Centrify is allowing users to centralize identity and…

It’s industry standard for vendors to hand out annual awards, and Centrify is no different. The Centrify Channel Partner Network (CCPN) was launched in January of 2014 and is focused heavily on core strategic partners. Last year, we were able to launch our own CCPN awards program to honor partners that have embraced our efforts and program. Now that we are in our second year of awarding partners, there are some very obvious metrics that we have seen that drive success selling and managing Centrify’s products. There is a very high percentage of our partner community that have met the…

With a knowledge base and a self-service portal in place, you’re probably enjoying the fact that when someone in your organization needs help with a problem that they can solve on their own. It’s great to have options that will only make your business stronger — if you know how to properly utilize them. Yes, you can utilize the knowledge within your organization! Encyclopedias aren’t just made to look pretty on a shelf, their purpose is to use history to inform future decisions and help people draw conclusions that will make the world a better place. Okay, so that’s a…
