With Centrify, cumbersome passwords can become a thing of the past. Centrify's unified identity management software and cloud-based Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solutions offer organizations greater user productivity, improved IT efficiency, better regulatory compliance and lower total cost of ownership (TCO) of their identity infrastructure. This is achieved via the enablement of single sign-on, role-based access control, privileged identity management, auditing and compliance.

As a result, end users are able to access all their applications from their PC, Mac or mobile device using a single identity. IT administrators achieve greater time and process efficiency when managing a variety of operating systems, mobile devices and applications -- deployed on-premises and/or in the cloud -- because they are able to consolidate all identities and privileges. With Centrify, organizations can reduce their TCO associated with identity management and compliance by more than 50 percent.

"Centrify is proud to receive the highest honors as a 2014 Hot Company by our industry and peers, and especially by Network Products Guide," said Tom Kemp, Centrify CEO and founder.
