Independent research firm notes that Centrify scored higher than any other vendor in the evaluation in the protocol support, step-up authentication, risk-based policies, multifactor authentication (MFA), and social login criteria.

 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 “Leader” for Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) in The Forrester Wave™: Identity-As-A-Service, Q4 2017 report. Most notably, Centrify topped all other vendors in this evaluation for execution of the company’s strategy. A complimentary copy of this report is available for download here.

Centrify provides the industry’s only single platform to secure each user’s access to apps and infrastructure through the power of identity services. With this recent report from Forrester, Centrify is the only identity services provider to be evaluated in and positioned as a leader by Forrester in both the IDaaS and Privileged Identity Management markets.

Centrify received the highest possible score in 22 of the 41 evaluation criteria including access management policy administration, policy management for user account provisioning to SaaS cloud web applications, breadth of mobile operating system support and customer satisfaction. Centrify scored higher than any other vendor in the evaluation of the protocol support, step-up authentication, risk-based policies, multifactor authentication (MFA), and social login criteria.

According to Forrester, Centrify’s “virtual-directory designed solution has extensive access policy protocol support, robust risk dashboards, integrated threat and identity analytics, and intuitive policy management.”

Earlier this year, Centrify announced that it hit a major milestone of more than $100M in sales in its Fiscal Year ending June 2017. The company continues to rapidly grow its customer base, particularly among large enterprises. New customers added to the roster include Sephora, Louis Vuitton, Office Depot, Colgate-Palmolive, Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Campbell Soup Company. Centrify now serves and supports over half of the Fortune 100, seven of the top-10 pharma companies, six of the top worldwide telcos and six of the top U.S. retailers.

“Even though security budgets are increasing as a result of the alarming surge in the number of data breaches, there is still a mismatch vis a vis the proportion of budgets spent on identity-related security solutions and the fact that compromised credentials are hackers’ top attack vector,” said Rhonda Shantz, chief marketing officer at Centrify. “We believe businesses of all sizes need to rethink security, and that starts with looking at an integrated platform to address identity and access management for both privileged and end user accounts which Centrify uniquely delivers.”

For this report, Forrester evaluated the top seven vendors against over 41 criteria, which were grouped into three categories including current offering, strategy and market presence. The report shows IDaaS reduces costs, supports flexibility and improves security. To download The Forrester Wave™: Identity-As-A-Service, Q4 2017, click here.
