Centrify Continues Office 365 Partnership Momentum with Upcoming Office 365 Webinars

Centrify for Office 365 was introduced at TechEd North America in June this year, just a few weeks after it passed a myriad of functional tests by Microsoft to qualify as a “Works with Office 365 – Identity” solution.  Since then, Centrify has been partnering with Microsoft headquarter and field teams to bring the solution to our mutual prospects and customers – including plans to jointly present at a couple of upcoming customer webinars that I have highlighted at the bottom of this post. Centrify for Office 365 is the Microsoft-validated, Azure-based service that offers the industry’s most easy-to-deploy and comprehensive solution for Active Directory-based Single Sign-On, user provisioning and mobile management for Office 365. While the Centrify solution delivers Single Sign-On for over 2000 SaaS apps including Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, Skype and Windows Azure, we’re seeing a lot of traction with Office 365 as an anchor workload because of Office 365’s huge market momentum.  Having achieved well over a billion-dollar run rate since its launch in mid-2011, Office 365 is one of the fastest-growing businesses in Microsoft history and is now available in 40 languages and 141 markets worldwide. Microsoft is partnering with Centrify on go-to-market activities around Centrify for Office 365because it is a “Works with Office 365 – Identity” solution, and the only one powered by Windows Azure – making Centrify a strong Microsoft partner as both an ISV (Independent Software Vendor) and as a CSV (Cloud Solution Vendor).  Centrify has a 9 year history as a Microsoft ISV partner around our Server Suite solutions – including having won the Microsoft Active Directory Partner of the Year Finalist award in 2009 – which provides a strong foundation to expand the partnership around Office 365 as a CSV. Below is information on two upcoming webinars where Centrify and Microsoft are co-presenting to outline how we can help customers seamlessly adopt Office 365 using their existing AD identities – if you’re an IT leader or IT professional responsible for Office 365, you won’t want to miss them!
