The authors recognized several key trends in the industry, including the growing support for PIM in the cloud and for PIM from the cloud. Saying the following about Centrify:

“Centrify offers the first SaaS PIM password safe in the industry,” states the report. “It has outstanding support for SaaS apps and IaaS platforms and offers flexible and customizable reporting features.”

I feel this is a definitive statement on a need we’ve addressed with Centrify Privilege Service. Our customers have adopted Privilege Service to extend their least privilege access and privileged session monitoring capabilities (provided by Centrify Server Suite). They are now securing privileged access to their hybrid infrastructures and access by remote employees and 3rd parties without the need for a VPN. One PIM solution for all your infrastructure — no matter where it is, and one solution for all your users — no matter where they are!

Centrify’s Privileged Identity Management solution includes Centrify Server Suite and Centrify Privilege Service, which together provide everything our customers need to address today’s growing gap in security, visibility and control over privileged access.

The Forrester report recognizes that PIM demands an integrated approach that includes multi-factor authentication (MFA), security assertion markup language (SAML), and also needs to be able to provide it’s own web-based channel for access, tamperproof password safe, privileged session monitoring, and control over privilege escalation on the endpoint. I couldn’t agree more!
