Centrify launches User Suite SaaS edition

Further features added to solution to assist with password sprawl and provide centralised control

Identity services company, Centrify, has updated its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) edition of its User Suite, which provides Active Directory and Cloud-based single sign-on (SSO), access management, application management, and mobile management across any Cloud, mobile, or on-premise application.

User Suite is designed to assist organisations in eliminating passport sprawl for users, and to allow centralised control over access to the growing numbers of SaaS apps and mobile devices in the workplace.

From the administrative perspective, the Cloud-based service delivers visibility into SaaS usage and integrated mobile application management with integration into Microsoft Active Director or Centrify’s Cloud user service.

The end user benefit lies in the ability to locate, lock or wipe mobile devices, as well as reset Active Directory passwords.

“The industry is validating our unified approach to SaaS and mobile management with more than 2000 end user organisations installing the solution since the beginning of the year,” Centrify product management senior director, Corey Williams, said.

Centrify also offers self-service apps from its online customer portal, which incorporate custom branding, and custom, dynamic, and role-based tagging of apps.

According to the chief information security officer (CISO) of Atlanta-based Morehouse College – an early adopter of the solution – Clifford Russell, the User Suite is able to cater the institute’s needs around robust audit trails, role-based user management, Mac and Unix AD integration and management tools.

“We looked at the vendor landscape for identity management solutions that also support SSO and SAML, and it turned out the Centrify Suite not only best addresses these needs, but it also covers other AD management requirements that we were trying to solve,” Russell said.
