NEWS TODAY: Centrify to focus on Zero Trust Privilege, spins out IDaaS business as Idaptive
10-09-2018 05:15 AM
Good morning, Centrify Community!
If you haven’t seen the news already, this morning we announced the spinout of Centrify’s IDaaS business into a new company called Idaptive, in order to serve our customers and partners even better.
Centrify and Idaptive will operate as independent, affiliated companies beginning in January 2019. This strategy doubles down on two distinct areas of enterprise security – Privileged Access Management and IDaaS – with dedicated resources to optimize focus, efficiency and growth.
- Centrify is sharpening its strategic focus on redefining the legacy approach to Privileged Access Management (PAM) with cloud-architected Zero Trust Privilege to stop the leading cause of breaches – privileged access abuse.
- Idaptive will deliver Next-Gen Access to protect employees, partners and customers with its market-leading IDaaS solution, securing access everywhere with an Intelligent Access Cloud that constantly learns from and adapts to login context and risk in a way that protects companies.
