Centrify Secures Industry's Broadest Range of Mission-Critical Servers From Identity-Related Insider and Outsider Threats

New Centrify Server Suite 2014 Uniquely Helps Organizations Enhance Risk Management and Meet Compliance Requirements for the Broadest Set of Cloud and On-Premise Servers and Apps

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/14 -- RSA Conference 2014 Booth 2015 -- Centrify Corporation, the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today introduced major new functionality in its Server Suite 2014 that protects the industry's broadest range of heterogeneous servers and applications in the datacenter and cloud from identity-related insider risks and outsider attacks. Centrify Server Suite 2014 also makes security and regulatory compliance repeatable and sustainable for organizations.

As evidenced by recent high-profile breaches and the end goal of Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), access to privileged accounts gives hackers everything they need to steal or siphon off sensitive data from mission critical servers. At the same time, insider threats may be accidental or unintentional, but with the same damaging results. Implementing a least privilege access model, auditing and associating privileged activity to an individual, and providing comprehensive reporting are at the root of reducing threats and cost-effectively addressing regulatory compliance.

"Today's organizations can't keep up with managing the growing numbers of identities and associated access and audit policies that span applications and servers," said Matt Hur, Centrify Senior Director of Product Management. "The Centrify Server Suite 2014 release builds upon our market-leading privileged identity management solution and further helps organizations improve their risk management and compliance efforts to protect their systems and critical resources. This release marks another milestone for helping customers manage their risk posture and cost-effectively address regulatory mandates to make compliance a sustainable part of their businesses."

With Centrify, organizations gain visibility into identity-related risks and internal threats through automated discovery of violations of identity and access management best practices, and simplified privileged access management and auditing that links all privileged activity back to an individual (as opposed to a shared account). Regulatory compliance is streamlined with an architecture that enforces a least-privilege security model across Windows, Linux and UNIX systems and applications, while also enabling enterprise-wide privileged session auditing and compliance reporting. Organizations also reduce costs and increase productivity with a single, unified solution for identity management and audit that leverages existing investments in identity infrastructure, versus deploying a myriad of single purpose and platform specific products.

New functionality introduced in Centrify Server Suite 2014 includes streamlined creation and management of administrative entitlements, making it easier to implement least privilege access by delivering new pre-configured rights for Windows Server management consoles that can be used out of the box. New wizards automate the creation of new, complex rights for administrative users and reduce the process to the simple click of a button. Wizards can be used in conjunction with Centrify's powerful new match criteria that improves flexibility in building a least privilege access model by enabling privileges to be determined based on properties such as a digital signatures.

Centrify Server Suite 2014 also uniquely provides full privileged activity audit trails and video capture that ties all activity back to an individual. With this release Centrify enhances its powerful search capabilities and compliance reporting that combines access controls and the associated activity fully integrated across Windows, Linux, and UNIX platforms. The Centrify Server Suite supports more than 450 platforms, the most in the industry. New platform support in this release includes Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5.10, 6.0, 6.5; CentOS 5.10, 6.5; Oracle Linux 6.5; Scientific Linux 5.10; Fedora 20; Debian Linux 7.2, 7.3; Linux Mint 16; Ubuntu Desktop 13.10; and Ubuntu Server 13.10.
