Centrify announced it is extending the Zero Trust ecosystem with new partners and a new partner program, the Centrify Zero Trust Security Network. The expanded program, debuted at SecurIT, the Zero Trust Summit for CIOs and CISOs, unifies Centrify’s extensive community of technology partners, making it possible for new and existing customers to integrate complementary technologies to extend and derive more value from their Centrify Zero Trust Security solutions.
The program, previously known as the Centrify Alliance Partner Program (CAPP), establishes a Zero Trust Security ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISVs), whose solutions are commonly used in conjunction with each other.
The network spans product categories including Analytics, Big Data, Collaboration, Communications, Cloud, CRM, Customer Service, Education, ERP, Finance, HR, IT Workflows, Productivity, and Security (i.e., CASB, Identity Governance, Next-Gen Firewalls and SIEM), empowering joint customers to protect their businesses from advanced threats and the impacts of breaches, while achieving compliance.
“As identity and passwords are the primary point of attack for data breaches, organizations need to rethink their approach to security and move to an identity-centric approach based on a Zero Trust model,” said Ben Rice, Vice President, Business Development at Centrify. “The Centrify Zero Trust Security Network establishes a Zero Trust Security ecosystem that includes incredibly inventive third-party technologies. Combined with Centrify Next-Gen Access, these solutions enable our joint customers to strengthen security by implementing an ‘always verify’ approach for everything ― including users, endpoints, networks, servers and applications.”
Participating partners can now leverage a broad range of tools and program benefits, including:
- Extensive pre-sales and field training
- Joint webinars and events
- Key account targeting
- Joint sales and marketing campaigns
- Participation in Centrify user events
- Joint client roadshows
