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.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
