Centrify extends commitment to securing apps and devices with deeper support for Windows endpoints and streamlines app configuration with AppConfig.org

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/.

Age of Access

Centrify recognises that it is critical to enable user choice while maintaining a highly secure environment in today’s age of access.

Centrify’s new Windows management features let IT organisations manage Windows endpoints from the cloud - including blocking app access from unmanaged devices - and further extends Centrify’s Zero Sign-On capabilities to Windows. After users are securely authenticated the first time, they never have to type in their ID again when launching an app.  

More Mobile Endpoints

This new feature builds on and extends Centrify’s existing industry-leading identity support for Mac, iOS. Linux and Android endpoints, as well as its Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) support for Linux and Windows login and privilege elevation. 

Combined with Centrify’s recently released Analytics Service, which uses machine learning to assess risk based on user behaviour patterns, Centrify’s extended service provides organisations with help to stop anomalous access requests across apps, sites, and resources.

Centrify has furthered its commitment to securing access to theboundaryless hybrid enterprise by joining AppConfig, a collection of industry leading enterprise mobility management solution providers and app developers that collaborate to make it easier for developers and customers to drive mobility in business.

The community’s mission is to streamline the adoption and deployment of mobile enterprise applications by providing a standard approach to app configuration and management, building upon the extensive app security and configuration frameworks available in the OS. 

Centrify Senior Director APAC Sales Niall King said security needed to move from a legacy static perimeter-based approach to protect millions of scattered connections in an increasingly boundaryless hybrid enterprise. “Centrify’s goal is to stop breaches through the power of identity services,” he said.

“By tightly integrating mobile and identity policy into a single solution, we are creating a more robust way to ensure that only the right people have access to the right apps and data from managed devices.”

More devices protected, better security

Centrify Identity Service enables organisations to extract more value from their investment by allowing greater endpoint choice, without compromising security. As well as provisioning new user accounts into cloud and mobile apps, Centrify can also push those apps to the users’ BYOD or corporate-owned devices and push the initial configuration to speed day-one productivity across any and all endpoints.

This assists organisations to increase productivity and eliminate helpdesk calls by accelerating the process of setting up new users with day-one provisioning of both endpoints and apps. They also save money by securing applications - and the endpoints used to access those apps - from a single context-aware solution.

Centrify also leverages endpoints such as Windows as a way to facilitate MFA to enable stronger authentication and reduce an organisation’s reliance on password-based security.
