Centrify Launches Zero Trust Security Network Ecosystem

The world has changed. I’m not sure if it was the HBO breach, Equifax, Yahoo, or one of the many breaches since, but after one of those we at Centrify realized it was one breach too many. As we looked at how the breaches were increasing in number, size, and severity we knew we had to do something different. How could we better protect our customers who are struggling under the weight of thousands of passwords and hundreds of ways to access applications/devices/servers? The answer lies in Zero Trust Security. The idea that we can no longer trust anyone attempting…

Centrify Selected as a Box Trust Partner

Over the past few months, it seems Centrify can’t escape the winner’s circle. This all began with positive recognition from revered industry analyst firm Forrester when they positioned Centrify as leaders in both of the Privileged Identity Management and recent IDaaS Waves. In fact, we are the only identity vendor who appears in both Waves, let alone be positioned as leaders in both. The winning streak continues! Centrify is proud to announce that we have been selected to join the Box Trust ecosystem. To show real dedication in keeping their customers’ data safe, Box has assembled a network of hand-selected…

4 Reasons Why Security is Important for Innovation Management

Well, maybe we should start with, “What is innovation management anyways?” At its most basic, it is the purposeful organization and management of ideas within an organization to create meaningful change. Companies use it to gather new product ideas, improve processes and discover new markets and business models. The White House used innovation management processes to cut government spending, Home Depot used this process to identify new product lines, and the DREAMS Challenge used innovation management software to fund new projects that would halt the spread of HIV (just to name a few). But if innovation management often starts by…

What’s Next from Google Cloud: Scenes from Google Next

Google Cloud last week had their big event in San Francisco, gathering Partners, customers and Googlers alike to talk about Google Cloud and its bright future. Centrify was proud to sponsor this event, and we had a presence in the Partner Playground, which allowed us to visit with hundreds of Google Next attendees to understand what they were doing with Google Cloud. Of course we spoke with Centrify customers, Google customers and some prospective customers, but interestingly, most of these conversations were with those who are already using software as a service (SaaS) or identity as a service (IDaaS) today….

Veterans Day: My Transition from Artillery Officer to Identity Management Professional

As an Artillery Officer in the United States Army, I am tasked with the challenge of understanding the enemy, their assets and capabilities, and from what vectors they can and will attack. Based on this knowledge and understanding, it is my responsibility to recommend to the commander on the ground: Where he should place his indirect fire assets (howitzers and mortars). Where he should place his observation platforms (forward observers, radars, and UAVs). What additional enablers (Fixed Wing and Rotary Wing Aircraft) he should request from higher headquarters to ensure his units are properly defended and conditions are set for…

SAP TechEd: 3 Realities of the SAP Community

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…

SIEM Partnerships with IBM, Splunk and HPe Grow Centrify Partnership Ecosystem

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…
