New Centrify capabilities reduce risk by securing local administrator passwords and simplifying Mac application management with turnkey Munki integration

Centrify Senior Director APAC Sales Niall KingCentrify Senior Director APAC Sales Niall KingCentrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, has enhanced its Centrify Identity Platform to increase administrator security and ease of use for managing Mac computers.

Centrify’s enhancements deliver local administrator password management for Macs and comprehensive Mac application management and software distribution via turnkey integration with the Munki open source solution. These new capabilities enable Mac administrators to implement best practices for controlling privileged access on Macs while at the same time simplifying management of Mac endpoints.

Centrify Senior Director APAC Sales Niall King said these latest security capabilities extended shared account password management (SAPM) from servers, network devices, Windows and Linux endpoints to Mac. “At the same time, they simplify Mac application management with Munki support that enables users to install applications without knowing the admin password,” he said. “The Centrify Identity Platform secures Mac endpoints as well as Windows and Linux with our market leading Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) and privileged identity management (PIM) solutions that help stop breaches across endpoints, infrastructure and apps.”

Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, has highlighted the fact that four out of five data breaches last year involved compromised credentials.

Citing the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), Centrify Senior Director APAC Sales Niall King said these latest statistics were a case of deja vu. “For years, we’ve seen compromised credentials as a primary cause of data breaches,” he said.

“Verizon’s report states that the number of data breaches involving stolen or weak passwords has gone from 50 per cent to 66 per cent to 81 per cent during the past three years. This alarming trend clearly illustrates that today’s security isn’t working.

Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, overnight announced significant enhancements to its best-in-class privileged identity management (PIM) solution to stop breaches that abuse privilege.

By minimising the attack surface and controlling privileged access to the hybrid enterprise, Centrify’s new capabilities enable organisations to move from static, long-lived privilege assignments to a just-in-time model, where advanced monitoring detects and alerts in real-time on the creation of backdoor accounts that make it easy to bypass a password vault.

Securing privileged access in today’s hybrid enterprise is mandatory in achieving a mature risk posture. According to The Forrester Wave™: Privileged Identity Management, Q3 2016, 80 per cent of breaches leverage privileged credentials to gain access to the organisation.
