Centrify, a leading provider of Zero Trust Security through the power of Next-Gen Access, today announces Vectra Corporation as a reseller for its identity management platform in Australia and New Zealand.

Vectra sees a strong opportunity for Centrify’s Identity and Access Management and Privileged Identity Management products in Australia, due to the new Notifiable Data Breach law and to assist financial services organisations reduce identity risk as the Federal Government-appointed Financial Services Royal Commission scrutinises the industry.

Poor identity management is the cause of many data breaches, according to Verizon’s 2017 Data Breach Investigation Report, which reported that 81 per cent of hacking-related breaches leveraged either stolen and/or weak passwords.

Centrify’s solution, which uniquely converges Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS), enterprise mobility management (EMM) and privileged access management (PAM), is used by more than 5000 organisations globally, including more than half the Fortune 100 in the US. Centrify has a well-established customer base in Australia and New Zealand.

Vectra, a national cybersecurity solutions and services provider that helps business fight cybercrime, protect data and reduce security risk, has strength in industry sectors including financial services, health, government and the defence sector.

Centrify Senior Director APAC Sales Niall King said Vectra had the experience and expertise to open new doors for the Centrify security platform in Australia and New Zealand. “Vectra can introduce Centrify to enterprise customers that can benefit from our identity management solutions,” he said.

Centrify, a leading provider of Zero Trust Security through the power of Next-Gen Access, today celebrates World Password Day by calling for the end of this outmoded form of protection.

World Password Day turns up annually on the first Thursday of May - as in today, May 3, 2018 - as a day to promote good security hygiene and password habits.

However, Centrify, a cybersecurity company whose products are used by more than half the Fortune 100 organisations in the US, warns people that passwords provide a false sense of security.

Centrify Senior Director APAC Sales Niall King said passwords fail to protect online resources. “The bottom line is that passwords are not doing the job they’re intended for,” he said.

As Australia unveils suspected Russian hacks on local businesses, Centrify moves to protect US 2018 midterm elections from cyber attacks with eight months free use of its Next-Gen Access solutions

Centrify CEO Tom Kemp

Centrify, a leading provider of Zero Trust Security through the power of Next-Gen Access, has announced an industry-first high tech leadership campaign to Secure the Vote for the 2018 midterm congressional elections in the United States.

Centrify is offering to provide US state, county, and city Election Boards and officials with the protection of its Next-Gen Access solutions at no cost for the first eight months of a 12-month or longer SaaS subscription, importantly covering this year’s congressional and gubernatorial elections.

Centrify’s offer was unveiled the same week that the Australian Government revealed that hundreds of Australian companies were targeted last year by suspected Russian state-sponsored cyber attacks that affected millions of machines worldwide. Also, a US “60 Minutes” report, titled When Russian Hackers Targeted the US Election Infrastructure, validates that the main target in the 2016 US election was election boards, and that up to 90,000 voter records were compromised.

Centrify CEO Tom Kemp said US democracy was under attack. “There is mounting concern that the 2018 midterms could result in more cyber assaults on election systems than in 2016,” he said.
