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.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
