Altron Arrow has secured a distribution agreement with cyber security specialist Centrify, covering its entire portfolio of identity-centric privileged access management (PAM) solutions.

Centrify’s cloud-ready, identity-centric approach to PAM is based on zero trust principles of "never trust, always verify, enforce least privilege".

Warren Mande, MD of Altron Arrow, said: “Data breaches represent a significant threat to organisations and the information they manage; these could lead to devastating losses in business productivity, reputational damage and revenue. Cyber security has never been more important.”

Centrify’s solutions are designed to protect organisations against unauthorised access and data breaches by managing permissions for humans and, increasingly, for machines, that are often fragmented across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

“The modern enterprise requires a modern approach to privileged access management, as attack surfaces like cloud, DevOps, containers and micro services have significantly expanded IT complexity. Centrify’s identity-centric PAM solutions can help any organisation optimise and secure privileged access, whether the requester is human or machine, in the cloud or on-premises. This relationship with Arrow significantly expands the depth, breadth and scope of our channel strategy in the region,” said Kamel Heus, regional director, Northern, Southern Europe, Middle East and Africa, Centrify.

Centrify’s cyber security solutions deliver an innovative approach to their partner channels, which address the inherent security challenges that organisations inevitably encounter on their digital transformation journeys. With Centrify, administrative management and access are seamless, security and compliance postures are strengthened, and machines are empowered to defend themselves against cyber threats.

“This agreement aligns with our goal to adopt Arrow Electronics’ global Enterprise Computing Solutions (ECS) strategy,” said Renato Martins, head of sales at Altron Arrow.
