Cyber Security that Pays for Itself in Australia

Centrify’s identity management platform is a unique product in the Australian cyber security market because of its ability to pay for itself through improved business productivity.

Many customers are surprised to discover Centrify’s “secret sauce” — the value it releases through improved business process efficiency, which delivers a prompt payback. In fact, Centrify stands out as a leading identity management product that saves companies time and money in the on-boarding process, especially in relation to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) use.

In the cyber security space, when a CEO asks the age-old question, “is this product going to make me money?” you usually say, “no, it’s just going to help you sleep better.” Centrify is unique in the security space as the only product that does save you money in terms of staff time, simpler usability and more efficient business processes. Companies are a lot quicker to close the deal with Centrify than with other security products. Customers are not taking months to decide — they have immediate requirements so they are deciding to buy quickly. With its day one provisioning, they see Centrify provides real process-driven benefits.

The Centrify identity management platform enables organisations to extract greater value from their investment by allowing greater endpoint choice, without compromising security. As well as provisioning new user accounts into cloud and mobile apps, Centrify can also push those apps to the users’ BYOD or corporate-owned devices to speed up day-one productivity.

When someone starts their new job, Centrify lets you put them in Active Directory, enable their approved access, including social media, and, with BYOD, all they do is log in to their Centrify dashboard and their applications are there. Then, when they leave, you just disable their account. From both a security standpoint and a business efficiency point of view, this brings huge value, which is why customers are jumping on board. Moreover, Centrify is ideally positioned to equip organisations in Australia and New Zealand to rethink their approach to securing corporate data, to deal with the advent of mobile devices and the cloud.

Centrify provides a single platform that secures each user’s access to apps and infrastructure through the power of identity services. Centrify’s growing channel ecosystem in Australia and New Zealand allows us to deliver these critical security solutions in the region.
