Organisations are increasingly moving their workloads to the cloud to achieve greater agility, flexibility and cost savings. Accessing documents and sensitive information in the cloud brings about various issues that need precautionary measures to be put in place.

Underlying the foundation of digital transformation are privileged identities, as they’re meant to assure that only authorised individuals, machines or services are permitted access to the right resources at the right times and for the right reasons.

Establishing a proper mechanism to do this in the most efficient and secure manner is therefore essential, and has become the Achilles heel to the success of many digital transformation projects.

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 multicloud environments.

With Centrify, administrative management and access is seamless, security and compliance postures are strengthened, and machines are empowered to defend themselves against cyber threats.

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

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.

Centrify is modernising how organisations secure, orchestrate, and analyse privileged identities through:

Privilege Elevation and Delegation Management (PEDM)

  • Just-in-time privilege
  • Just enough privilege

Privileged Account and Session Management (PASM)

  • Vault away shared accounts
  • Broker access with credential injection

Privileged Access Compliance Auditing (PACA)

  • Continuously report who has access to what
  • Apply host-based monitoring and session recording for more granular auditing

Privileged Identity and Access Management (PIAM)

  • Identity consolidation
  • Federate access across DMZ, IaaS and multicloud

In the context of PAM, zero trust requires establishing a root of trust, and then granting least privilege access just-in-time based on verifying who is requesting access, the context of the request, as well as the risk of the access environment.

Implement identity-centric PAM in your organisation to minimise your attack surface, improve audit and compliance visibility and reduce risk, complexity and costs for the modern, hybrid enterprise.
