Centrify overnight announced at Mobile World Congress in Spain that it has widened its lead in mobile security by combining multi-factor authentication and single sign-on for the next generation of wearable devices.
Centrify Corporation, the leader in unified identity management across cloud, mobile and data centre, is also providing new containerisation and security support for Samsung’s KNOX 2.4.
The Centrify Identity Service will support both the Samsung and Apple built-in fingerprint scanners, marrying the security of policy-based single sign-on with multi-factor authentication and thus creating a better and more convenient user experience.
This new functionality includes push notifications to Android and iOS devices, integration of multi-factor authentication for SaaS and mobile apps with Android Wear devices, and the industry’s simplest multi-factor authentication with one-tap verification. This capability will be generally available by the end of March.
Thousands of Centrify customers are now embracing its converged mobility and identity solution as their employees demand single sign-on (SSO) access to cloud applications via mobile devices.
“The more we investigated Centrify, the more we found that it met our requirements across the board - it could provision out our Wi-Fi network, provision apps down to the mobile phones and it could introduce a much deeper level of security,” said Martin Spencer, PC Asset Management team leader at Snowy Hydro Limited, a leading electricity generation company in Australia.
