FREMONT, CA: Centrify, an enterprise identity management, and security solutions provider, offers cloud services in Japan and Australia to meet its Identity and Access Management (IAM) Solutions demand mounting in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. The new data centers enable better cloud reach to the customers of APAC with the pre-existing centers, meet in-region data sovereignty requirements and maximize the benefits of new product enhancements such as Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Customer (B2C) support.
The Centrify cloud comprises Centrify Identity Platform, Centrify Identity Service (CIS), Centrify Privilege Service (CPS), SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type II compliant and audited systems and controls, and Physical and virtual infrastructure hosted globally on Microsoft Azure.
CIS is an integrated identity and mobility management solution, and CPS is a cloud-based privileged management solution, that is powered by the Identity-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform, Centrify cloud.
“Centrify is the first company offering a cloud-based IAM solution to open a service region in both Japan and Australia, often in-region data residency,” says Bill Man, chief product officer of Centrify. “Centrify secures enterprise identities against cyber threats that target today’s hybrid IT environment of cloud, mobile and on-premises. This is critical in an increasingly active world, where the leading point of attack used in data breaches is compromised credentials.”
Centrify Identity Service
The CIS integrates Single Sign-on (SSO), Provisioning and Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) with enterprise mobility and Mac management, and enables end-user productivity, secure access to cloud, mobile and on-premises apps, and reduces cost and complexity of the users. It supports internal users including employees and contractors as well as external users such as partners and customers.
