Forrester Report Recognizes Centrify as a Strong Performer

February 24, 2014

Centrify Corporation has been recognized as a Strong Performer in the recent Forrester (News - Alert) Research’s Privileged Identity Management report, "The Forrester Wave: Privileged Identity Management, Q1 2014." The report evaluated nine vendors based on 18 key criteria, including current offering, strategy and market presence. Centrify Corporation is a leading provider of Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile platforms.

In a release, Matt Hur, senior director of product management, Centrify, said, "In today's IT security environment, malicious insiders and outsiders are ultimately after the 'keys to the kingdom', because access to privileged accounts gives hackers everything they need to siphon off sensitive data from critical servers. Centrify uniquely provides an approach to privileged identity management that leverages existing investments in infrastructure and skillsets, and does not affect user productivity by changing the way they access servers and applications. This approach combined with our comprehensive privileged access management solution enables our customers to effectively manage identity-related risk while adapting as their business demands."

According to the report, among the vendors' current offerings evaluation, Centrify Server Suite was recognized as the only solution to earn the highest possible score for its customer satisfaction, market presence, and Active Directory bridge functionality. Centrify also received highest score for its privileged session spawning, privileged session recording, and privilege escalation.

The Forrester Research (News - Alert) report cites, "Customers have found the product to be above expectations, citing excellent staff support and technical support. Customers have been impressed with the level of care Centrify has committed to its product and the partner relationship it establishes. Leaders in the Privileged Identity Management (PIM) space now offer cloud support, threat mitigation to prevent data breaches, and privileged identity intelligence. The PIM market is growing because more Security and Risk (S&R) professionals see PIM as a relatively simple but effective way to address their top security, compliance, and efficiency challenges. Also, S&R pros increasingly trust PIM providers to act as strategic partners, advising them on top password safe decisions and offering layered controls."

Centrify's unified identity services extensively supports cloud applications, multi-tenancy for centralized policy management across its components, and agent-based as well as agentless deployment for session recording. Organizations are enabled to reduce costs, and increase agility and productivity.
