Intercede’s MyID technology and Centrify Identity Service enable compliance with HSPD 12 and open new mobile use cases for employees

Centrify Chief Product Officer Bill MannCentrify Chief Product Officer Bill MannUK-based cybersecurity and identity management expert Intercede has announced a partnership with Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity, to secure and manage mobile access in highly regulated industries.

The partnership is intended to assist enterprises that must comply with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), FIPS 201-2 and NIST 800-157.

Interecede’s MyID enables enterprises to replace employee passwords with more secure and convenient digital identities on smart cards.  This solution then manages the lifecycle of credentials, for example revoking them if a user leaves an organisation or updating them in advance of the credentials expiring. All credential issuance and lifecycle events are recorded into MyID, providing full visibility and audit capabilities.

By integrating Intercede’s mobile identity agent and software development kit (SDK) with Centrify Identity Service’s derived credential, the companies are creating a superior security solution for end-users and allowing mobile devices to be used for secure access to apps, websites and services that require smart card authentication. 

For enterprises that need stronger authentication that eliminates passwords, or Federal agencies and other organisations that must comply with HSPD-12, NIST guidance and other security mandates for Smart Card authentication, Centrify’s derived credential solution provides a seamless way to provide mobile access without compromising security.

Centrify Senior Director APAC Sales Niall KingCentrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, has expanded support for both Windows and Apple-based laptops, desktops and mobile devices in Australia and New Zealand.

As well as strengthening security for Windows endpoints, Centrify has joined AppConfig.org to streamline app and device provisioning, extend IT security policy and provide end-users with more device choices.

These enhancements to Centrify’s mobile-centric identity management solutions let organisations further realise seamless, context-aware policy across all the applications, endpoints and devices their users prefer – all from a single integrated solution.

Centrify has made these developments available immediately in Australia and New Zealand through its Identity Service, Privilege Service and Server Suite. Learn more at https://www.centrify.com/products/.

Now available in Australia and New Zealand, new add-on for Centrify Identity Services Platform uses machine learning to spot and block suspicious access attempts

Centrify Chief Product Officer Bill ManCentrify Chief Product Officer Bill ManCentrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, has launched its new Analytics Service, which uses machine learning to assess and respond to risk based on user behaviour. 

Based on its analysis of constantly-evolving user behaviour patterns, the Centrify Analytics Service assigns a risk score, and enforces an appropriate decision - determining whether the user’s access is granted, requires step-up authentication, or is blocked entirely.

The Centrify Analytics Service is now available in Australia and New Zealand as an add-on to Centrify Identity Service and Centrify Privilege Service.

Centrify chief product officer Bill Mann said behaviour-based scoring gave low-risk users a frictionless experience, easing access and improving productivity, while maintaining high security. “By tailoring security policy to each individual’s behaviour and automatically flagging risky behaviour, we’re helping IT professionals minimise the risk of being breached — with immediate visibility into account risk, without poring over millions of log files and massive amounts of historical data,” he said.
