We recognised early on the critical need for combining mobility and identity management

Independent research firm recognises Centrify’s unique capabilities in risk-based authentication

Bracknell UK — Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, today announced Forrester Research Inc., a leading industry analyst firm, has named Centrify a “Strong Performer” for Enterprise Mobility Management in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Mobility Management, Q4 2017 report. Centrify is also the only vendor to be recognized as a “Leader” in Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS)¹ and Privilege Identity Management (PIM) Waves² and was cited as a “Strong Performer” for Enterprise (EMM). A complimentary copy of this report is available for download here.

Forrester recognised that Centrify uniquely uses machine learning to analyse employee behaviour and generate risk scores for users, allowing administrators to set policy, based on risk level and adaptively enforcing additional security policies, such as MFA or biometric.

“Forrester noted vendors who provide contextual access capabilities and risk-based authentication, position themselves to successfully deliver secure, user-friendly EMM experiences to their customers,” said Bill Mann, chief product officer at Centrify. “We recognised early on the critical need for combining mobility and identity management, so we built one platform that incorporates SSO, MFA, EMM and privilege. The seamless delivery of these capabilities in a single platform lays the groundwork for customers to move towards a Zero Trust Security model.”

According to Forrester, Centrify received the highest possible scores in the product vision and mobile identity and access criteria. The report states that Centrify’s identity capabilities include certificate and biometric authentication, conditional access policy creation, and support for derived credentials and privileged identity management, which we believe are in high demand by customers.
