Centrify APAC Regional Director, Matt Ramsay, said the company would formally announce its first Australian cloud compting partnership with Paradyne at the Microsoft TechEd conference, starting tomorrow on the Gold Coast and running until Friday.
Ramsay said the combination of Centrify’s product suite with Paradyne’s cloud expertise created a “compelling alliance.”
“Paradyne is Microsoft’s number one Office 365 partner in Australia.
Paradyne is a cloud consultancy specialising in the deployment and integration of Microsoft Cloud Products including Office 365, Exchange Online, Lync, SharePoint Online, Office Web Apps and more for small business, education, enterprise and organisations such as aged care providers.
Ramsay said that this year Centrify had extended its product set from the data centre to the cloud by launching Centrify for Mobile 2013 and Centrify for SaaS 2013.
“Enabled by the Centrify Cloud Service platform, this set of integrated capabilities delivers secure, enterprise-class mobility with integrated application Single Sign-On (SSO) to improve security and increase enterprise workforce productivity.”
Paradyne Managing Director, Loryan Strant, said Centrify’s Unified Identity Services solution was the answer that solved the security challenges introduced by cloud services. “Centrify provides organisations with a more streamlined way to leverage their existing identity infrastructure,” he said.
“This allows Centrify customers to centrally manage authentication access, control, privilege management, policy enforcement together with auditing not only for cloud but also on-premises systems.
“In addition, Centrify has also integrated its SSO feature set with 1000-plus applications including Office 365, Salesforce.com, Webex, Concur, Dropbox, Box, Zendesk, Marketo and so forth. We are very positive about delivering great value for customers through this new partnership with Centrify.”
