You know when you’re hanging out with friends, maybe doing a little drinking, and somebody suggests that you go to a karaoke bar? “Heck yeah! Sounds fun, I’m a GREAT singer!” The letdown is always when somebody records your performance and you listen to it (or worse, watch it on YouTube or social media) the next day…. “Oh, I’m not as good as I thought I was, but I’m still not willing to take any voice lessons.” The same could be said about Privileged Access Management. We all know it’s a good thing to do, but we tend to be…

Centrify received exciting news this week that we are now FedRAMP Authorized! For those who don’t know about FedRAMP, it is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. FedRAMP Authorization is an important qualification that significantly smooths the process of selling cloud technology solutions to government agencies. We have been trying to get this authorization for years, so this is a BIG win for Centrify, our partners, and our customers.

If there was one clear takeaway from the 2018 RSA Conference, it was that Zero Trust was ready to take off. It seemed like everywhere you turned, Zero Trust was staring you in the face. Oh wait, that was just the Centrify marketing blitz that overtook San Francisco and Moscone Center last April! ZERO TRUST, 10 MONTHS LATER Fast-forward 10 months ahead and here we are, heading back to Moscone for the annual cybersecurity event. And what’s even more clear: Zero Trust has arrived. Many vendors in the industry have jumped on the Zero Trust bandwagon (whether they have a…

As organizations struggle to protect the ever-expanding attack surface, they not only have to secure access to infrastructure, databases, and network devices, but also extend security controls to cloud environments. The modern threatscape now includes Big Data projects, DevSecOps, and hundreds of containers or microservices that represent what used to be a single server. At Centrify, we believe that legacy PAM solutions simply are not capable of securing modern enterprise attack surfaces. That’s why we have a vision of redefining legacy PAM with cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege. Yet, as with anything, knowing how, when and where to start or progress…

The 2019 RSA Conference is just around the corner, coming up March 4-8 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco! If you’ve never attended an RSA show before, this is the security event of the year and the best opportunity you’ll find to network with over 40,000 other security professionals — exchanging ideas, learning the latest trends and finding solutions that empower you to stay ahead of rapidly-evolving and increasingly-costly cyber threats. As usual, Centrify will have a significant presence at the event. We’ve moved from the South Hall into the North Hall, and will be offering demos, theater presentation and great…

In 2018, Zero Trust Security gained a lot of popularity, as more organizations recognized the merit of the Zero Trust approach to security. We saw the term go from being a buzzword to an actual security approach that organizations have engaged and started to implement. That’s the good news. The bad news is that when it comes to actually implementing a Zero Trust Security model, many still don’t know where to start. And there are several misconceptions surrounding Zero Trust that further impede adoption. This might explain why, despite the rise in awareness about Zero Trust Security, an incredible 66%…

Today Forrester Research released The Forrester Wave™: Privileged Identity Management, Q4 20181. Evaluating 11 vendors, Forrester named Centrify a Leader. Here at Centrify, we believe this is a strong validation of Centrify’s Zero Trust Privilege approach to privileged identity management.
