Centrify launched its app gateway for user suite that delivers remote access to internal web applications without the need for a virtual private network (VPN).

The unified identity management firm’s new capability will be demonstrated publicly for the first time at the Gartner Identity & Access Management (IAM) Summit 2014 in Los Angeles.

Enterprises have traditionally relied on VPNs to provide employees with external access to internal apps that sit behind corporate firewalls. The problem with VPNs, according to Centrify, is that once inside, the user has access to the entire network, introducing a significant level of risk.

Centrify senior director of products, Corey Williams, said the firm was the first vendor to integrate MDM with SSO to address the needs of mobile users.

“With the app gateway, we now offer one-click access to on premises apps from any device.”

“By building remote access to internal apps such as Sharepoint and SAP into the same solution that controls access to external cloud and mobile apps, Centrify is advancing the vision of the IDaaS market toward the access of any app from any device for any user, whether on-premises, in the cloud, or in a mobile environment,” he said.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
