- 06 June, 2014 10:01
Centrify has launched a single integrated enterprise solution for managing workers accounts across Cloud, apps and mobile devices.
The new user account management and provisioning features give organisations the ability to manage their entire Cloud application ecosystem through one solution.
This includes automatic account provisioning and de-provisioning, single sign-on access to Cloud apps, and self-service mobile management and security.
It also allows users to store identities in an on-premise active directory, in the Cloud or a hybrid combination of both.
Support is available for a wide range of popular SaaS applications including Office 365, Google Apps for Business, Salesforce, Box, Zendesk and others.
Centrify senior director of product management and marketing, Corey Williams, said new provisioning features provided enterprise IT with full account lifecycle management across Cloud, mobile apps and devices.
“Organisations can quickly and seamlessly on-board new users, secure the apps and devices used to access corporate data, deploy mobile apps to users’ devices, and de-provision access when employees leave the organisation,” he said.
“Additionally, they can let users easily enrol their own devices for both SaaS and mobile self-service and single sign-on.”
According to a company statement, new account provisioning enables IT organisations to save time and money by automatically creating user accounts across Cloud applications for new employees.
Centrify’s provisioning capabilities also include unique licence management for apps such as Office 365.
The new automated provisioning functionality rounds out the company's Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution with full user lifecycle management for popular Cloud apps including Office 365, Google Apps, Salesforce and others.
It provides an IDaaS solution that secures both application access, as well as the devices used to most commonly access and store the data within those apps.
Users receive single sign-on access to the appropriate apps, based on roles and responsibilities and can be rapidly de-provisioned centrally, for all Cloud apps
Admins can also manage all users, apps, devices, roles and policies from a single portal.
