Centrify Earns Advanced Partner Status in the Amazon Web Services Partner NetworkNovember 27, 2017
Centrify, a leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, today announced two milestones with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Centrify has been named an Advanced tier Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and Centrify Identity Services are now available on AWS Marketplace. Achieving Advanced Technology Partner status in the APN allows Centrify to leverage the power of AWS’s shared security model and provide identity and privilege management solutions for AWS administrators as well as developers and users of applications and workloads running on AWS services.
"We are thrilled to be a member of the AWS Partner Network and extend our collaboration with the leading cloud services provider," said Bill Mann, chief product officer at Centrify. "Our Advanced Technology Partner status enables us to couple Centrify’s cutting-edge identity services and privilege management with the AWS shared security model, making it simpler for organizations to securely manage their employees’ access to corporate AWS resources for development, application hosting and cloud storage and minimizes the need for administrative shared accounts and passwords to be reset on AWS."
As a new seller on AWS Marketplace, Centrify Identity Services for AWS is designed to increase security to users’ access to apps, endpoints and infrastructure through privileged access security (PAS), single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA) and enterprise mobility management (EMM) – critical capabilities that enable Zero Trust Security.
"Customers are increasingly concerned with securing access to apps, endpoints and infrastructure while simultaneously reducing complexity, costs and breaches in the cloud," said Barry Russell, General Manager of Worldwide Business Development, AWS Marketplace and Service Catalog, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "The availability of Centrify’s Identity Services on AWS Marketplace gives customers a great opportunity to experience a new approach to access control for apps, endpoints and infrastructure."
David McNeely, vice president of product strategy at Centrify, will also be speaking at re:INVENT on how enterprises can increase security in the hybrid enterprise. Attendees will learn how identity services complement the AWS Shared Responsibility Model and how enterprises can leverage and extend on-premises access policies to deploy infrastructure and apps quickly and securely on AWS.
