Centrify Corp. which specializes in unified identity services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced the general availability of Centrify for Mobile 2013 and Centrify for SaaS 2013, a set of integrated capabilities enabled by the Centrify Cloud Services platform that delivers secure, enterprise-class mobility with integrated application Single Sign-on (SSO) to improve security and increase workforce productivity in the enterprise.
Centrify says its solution goes beyond Mobile Device Management (MDM) and SaaS SSO to also provide comprehensive Mobile Application Management (MAM) and "Zero Sign-on" for browser-based applications and rich mobile applications, addressing the IT and user challenges surrounding "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) adoption and the explosion of cloud-based apps.
"While a number of point products offer simple SSO to SaaS applications and basic MDM capability, the Centrify Cloud Services platform raises the bar in providing enterprises with true mobile enablement for their mobile and SaaS-driven environments with our Unified Identity Services," says David McNeely, Centrify senior director of product management. "With Centrify, users get to use the devices they choose and one-click Zero Sign-on to their apps to help them be more productive at work, while enterprise IT easily centrally manages and secures all these user-centric applications and devices on their networks. The unification of mobile and identity management truly enables today’s changing mobile landscape."
Uniquely enabling organizations to manage mobile devices, mobile and web applications, and application authentication, the Centrify Cloud Services platform delivers unparalleled integration with existing Active Directory infrastructure, skill sets and processes, he adds. The Centrify Cloud Services platform enables both Centrify for Mobile and Centrify for SaaS, both of which have undergone major enhancements.
Centrify for Mobile 2013 includes new capabilities such as Mobile Authentication Services (MAS), Mobile Application Management (MAM) and Mobile Container Management (MCM), as well as updates to current MDM functionalities. Centrify for Mobile 2013 is available today from Centrify and authorized partners worldwide. It's priced at US$3 per device per year, which includes technical support and access to feature updates.
