SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats, today announced that it has formed technology integration partnerships with five leading cloud access security brokers (CASBs): CloudLock, Elastica, Imperva, Netskope and Skyhigh Networks. These integrations – coupled with Centrify’s proven leadership in end user and privileged user identity security — enables IT to confidently deploy cloud applications to all employees, while staying safe, secure and compliant.
SaaS applications like Salesforce.com, Office 365, Dropbox, Box, Google Apps and more are now a compelling option for enterprises looking to streamline their business and increase productivity. But as employees access those apps through their own devices, and from outside the corporate network, organizations are increasingly exposed to security risks.
The combination of CASB and Centrify’s Identity Service gives enterprises control over cloud applications by assuring that these applications are used for business purposes and are protected against data leakage — all without any compromise in performance or security.
“As users, and devices, and especially applications have moved outside the firewall beyond IT control, identity has become the new security perimeter,” said Bill Mann, chief product officer of Centrify. “Each application has standard users, privilege users and IT admins having various levels of access to sensitive information. The integration of Identity-as-a-Service and CASB technologies greatly assists in providing a complete layer of cloud security — providing deep visibility into SaaS applications and user behaviors on those apps. Our new CASB partnerships mean that end users benefit from password-free access to SaaS apps, while privileged users and IT benefit from maximum visibility and monitoring of app usage and suspicious behavior to ensure security is not compromised. ”
Thanks to Centrify’s Identity Platform integration for CASB Solutions, customers can now easily deploy and augment their security infrastructure for cloud applications to meet deeper compliance requirements like visibility of shadow IT apps, monitoring and auditing of user activity within apps, data leak prevention, governance, and threat protection. Customers can also seamlessly couple essential security features like secure sign on, multi-factor authentication (MFA), automated provisioning for apps and devices, and enterprise mobility management — along with advanced features to discover, audit, and protect SaaS app usage.
Centrify Identity Service is fully integrated with its CASB partners to provide a comprehensive solution for provisioning, governing and securing enterprise SaaS applications, jointly delivering:

“Enterprise adoption of cloud applications is growing rapidly, with more organizations storing and sharing critical business data in the cloud. This trend requires new tools to monitor, govern and secure usage of these new applications,” said Sheldon Gilbert, vice president of business development at Elastica. “Partnering with Centrify allows us to deliver seamless integration of their identity management solution along with our industry leading CASB offering to streamline safe adoption of the cloud for enterprise organizations.”
“The adoption of cloud applications has made security a shared responsibility between the application provider and the subscribing organization,” said Frank Cabri, Vice President of Marketing for the Skyfence product line at Imperva. “Imperva enables global organizations to discover assets and risks, then protect their most valuable information both in the cloud and on-premises. We are pleased to team with Centrify to give their customers confidence that their data is protected no matter where it resides and how it’s accessed.”
“As organizations continue to seek the cost savings and increase in productivity associated with SaaS, they need a solution that not only safely enables the use of cloud apps, but also secures the identity of the users on their network,” said Rick Holden, vice president of business development and alliances for Netskope. “The integration of the Netskope Active Platform with Centrify’s Identity Service provides these organizations with an industry-leading solution that delivers the most advanced cloud DLP, surgical visibility and control for both sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud apps, and a future-proof architecture that supports a variety of deployment options.”
