Centrify claims ‘industry first’ Identity-as-Service cloud solution

By

Security services vendor Centrify claims an ‘industry first’ with the release of its new cloud-based unified Identity-as-a-Service solution which it says will enable organisations to solve users’ password sprawl problems and secure devices accessing Cloud and mobile apps.

Centrify, a global Unified Identity Services vendor, has just announced the availability of its User Suite, SaaS Edition.

“This launches the industry’s first Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution to provide both robust Active Directory- and/or cloud-based Single Sign-on (SSO), access management, application management and mobile management across any cloud, mobile or on-premise application,” said Corey Williams, Centrify senior director of product management.

Williams said that with Centrify User Suite, SaaS Edition organisations eliminate password sprawl for their users and “for the first time gain centralised control over access to ever-increasing numbers of SaaS apps and mobile devices in the workplace.”

According to Williams, today’s users have too many passwords, “which are inherently weak due to sharing and reuse and are susceptible to phishing and breaches.”

“IT is increasingly reliant on user-managed passwords, and also faces accelerating adoption of SaaS and mobile apps which require multi-factor authentication for enhanced security, with mobile devices representing the best ‘something you have’ factor.

“In addition, mobile is the new preferred way to access apps, with users mixing work and personal information on their mobile devices, creating the need from an identity and access management perspective that the underlying device be secured and trusted.

“Because of this intersection between mobility and identity, IT requires a new user-centric approach that gives it visibility and control over end users’ identity and their mobile access, while enabling those same end users to have seamless anytime/anywhere /any device access.”
