Unified identity management company Centrify has launched an app gateway for its Centrify User Suite that it says securely delivers VPN-free remote access to internal web applications.

According to Centrify its new app gateway, available immediately in Australia and globally, avoids the hassle or risk of a VPN, ‘dramatically’ simplifying access to internal apps.

Centrify senior director of products Corey Williams said that by clicking on a shortcut in their Centrify portal, users can immediately access their favourite apps, using a single sign-on (SSO), “just like with all their external SaaS apps”.

The app gateway also lets users, including partners and suppliers, securely access corporate resources from any device, including smartphones, tablets and personal computers.  

Corey says security is another key component of the app gateway.  “It is safer than a VPN because the user is granted access to only the target app and not the rest of the network”.

“Another benefit of the Centrify app gateway is that on-premises apps such as Microsoft Sharepoint can now be as securely accessed as SaaS apps leveraging all of the features of Centrify User Suite, including multi-factor authentication, per app access policies, and central reporting of app access.”
