Centrify helps secure Box customers by reducing access risk through a Zero Trust Security model

Centrify's Ben RiceCentrify, a leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, has announced that it has been selected by Box as a Box Trust Partner, providing access to services based on what is known about you and your device, which is the core tenant of a modern, Zero Trust approach to security. Centrify’s partnership with Box empowers a seamless and more secure access experience for any person and from any device.

Box Trust Partners are a select group of technology innovators focused on security, governance and compliance. They are chosen based on their market leadership, value and quality of the joint solution and demonstrated commitment to customer success. Centrify is unique in its industry recognition as a “Leader" in The Forrester Wave™:  Identity-As-A-Service, Q4 2017 report as well as a “Strong Performer” in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Mobility Management, Q4 2017 report.

By unifying these two award-winning technologies of identity and enterprise mobility management through a seamlessly integrated platform that enables single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), user lifecycle management, mobile management, conditional access and risk-based authentication (RBA), Box customers are able to greatly increase confidence that only authorised users are allowed access.

“Leading businesses of all sizes are rethinking their security approach in light of the fact that the traditional network perimeter is disappearing given the rise of remote workers, BYOD devices and cloud resources,” said Ben Rice, VP of worldwide business development at Centrify.

“With Centrify Identity Services, the risk of a bad actor accessing your data is greatly reduced through a Zero Trust approach to security. Centrify built one platform that incorporates SSO, MFA, and EMM capabilities to securely verify you and your device before granting access. The seamless delivery of these offerings in a unified platform not only increases the productivity of Box customers but also ensures greater security for their data.”

“Box Trust is a partner ecosystem for select group of security companies that demonstrate market leadership and directly enhance security for Box customers,” said Nidhi Jain, director of business development at Box. “Centrify is unique in that they have demonstrated leadership in both the IDaaS and EMM space and Box customers can increase productivity and reduce risk from more intelligent and dynamic access.”

According to a Verizon report, 81 per cent of breaches involve weak, default or stolen passwords and Centrify helps enable collaboration and sharing without worry about compromised passwords. For Box accounts, Centrify improves productivity and bolsters security by reducing the number of passwords for users. Centrify also provides automated onboarding of users to Box for new employees and automated deprovisioning when they leave, as well as automated deployment of the Box mobile application on their devices.
