Centrify streamlines adoption of hybrid cloud

Centrify has announced new hybrid cloud capabilities and best practice guidance to speed and secure adoption of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), the company said.

Centrify´s solution uniquely provides identity freedom, deployment freedom, and the most comprehensive capabilities for securing privileged access to infrastructure and apps in a hybrid IT environment.

IaaS platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) provide an excellent layer of foundational security, but the shared responsibility model is clear: businesses are still responsible for the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their data in the cloud.

Centrify´s Identity Broker capability connects servers deployed in the cloud to the customer´s identity provider of choice ― including Active Directory and LDAP directories — without having to replicate complex identity infrastructure in the cloud or set up site-to-site VPNs or one-way trusts and Read Only Domain Controllers (RODCs).

Centrify secures enterprise identities against cyberthreats that target today´s hybrid IT environment of cloud, mobile, and on-premises.
