Centrify Is Software Vendor of the Year at the European IT & Software Excellence Awards

Award Recognises Centrify's Channel Strategy and Its Commitment to Supporting, Training and Motivating Its Channel Partners

SANTA CLARA, CA and BRACKNELL, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- Centrify Corporation, the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced that it has won the title of Software Vendor of the Year at the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2014. Hosted by IT Europa, the leading European IT publisher and market intelligence organization, the pan-European awards for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), IT and Telecoms channels recognize the crucial role that Independent Software Vendors and Solution Providers have in delivering real-world solutions.

The awards attracted entries from 25 countries, which were judged by an independent panel of consultants and editors. In the supplier categories, including the category of Software Vendor of the Year, channel companies nominated their distributors, service providers and vendors for the support provided through their channel programmes.

"It is an honour to receive this award as it proves the trust the channel places not only in our solutions, but also in how we help them deliver those solutions to end customers," said Tom Kemp, Centrify CEO. "Achieving security and regulatory compliance can be daunting tasks for any organization. We work closely with our channel partners to provide tools that reliably protect data and applications from identity-related risks and attacks -- whether these sit in the data center, cloud or mobile environments. As one of the fastest growing security vendors, we see the channel as critical to our success and we will continue to invest heavily in our partnerships."

Centrify recently introduced its Channel Partner Network, a tiered program with benefits that provide resellers, integrators and consultants with unique revenue opportunities beyond the company's long-standing channel programs.

In congratulating the winners, Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa, said: "The overall quality of entries was extremely high and demonstrated the depth of talent in the ISV and channel communities across Europe. I congratulate all the winners and wish them and all the finalists every success in the year ahead."

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.
