Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats, has today announced the appointment of Hemisphere Technologies as its first distributor across Australia and New Zealand.
The appointment of Hemisphere Technologies, a specialist distributor of industry-leading cyber security and business continuity solutions, marks Centrify’s adoption of a local channel-focused strategy in line with the company’s global channel model.
Centrify, which has had an Australian office since 2012, sees the partnership with Hemisphere as an opportunity to increase its visibility and reach across the A/NZ market. Trusted by more than half of the Fortune 50 companies in the US, the company boasts the iconic Snowy Hydro Limited company amongst its local customers - a sign of its experience in providing solutions for Australian critical infrastructure providers.
Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats, overnight announced the next evolution of its Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Everywhere initiative, with support for new platforms — including Windows and UNIX servers, as well as Windows laptops — and new authentication factors while extending MFA to privileged account use cases.
“Centrify is committed to protecting businesses against cyberattacks that target both end users and privileged IT users,” said Bill Mann, chief product officer of Centrify. “We are extending our MFA capabilities to Windows to better secure end users and their devices. For privileged IT users, we’ve added additional server operating systems, as well as enforcing MFA when remote sessions are initiated, and on privileged password checkout. Our integrated MFA capabilities clearly differentiate our solution from the competition when it comes to securing access across today’s hybrid infrastructure and apps environment.”
Brisbane-based Accelerated Concepts has appointed Melbourne’s NPS (Network Professional Services) as a master reseller to speed up sales of its Australian-designed 4G failover routers.
Designed by an engineering team based in Brisbane, Accelerated routers use an embedded, carrier-certified cellular modem to provide Internet access via 4G LTE and 3G cellular wireless data networks when primary access fails. The devices are sold globally by US-based Accelerated Concepts Inc. In Australia, they are available through https://www.acau.com.au/.
With a long background in routing products, Richmond-based NPS employs network engineers with experience from SME to enterprise service and sales staff familiar with channel sales in Australia and New Zealand. NPS already partners with CrowdStrike, BeyondTrust and Okta.
