Centrify will also deliver single sign-on (SSO) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) for Chromebooks and shared account password management and auditing of privileged users for Google Compute Engine’s virtual servers, and enhanced user provisioning for Google Apps.

As companies continue to adopt cloud and mobile technology, IT is challenged to secure access to applications, devices and servers and can no longer rely on traditional perimeter security.

Instead they need to protect their data by leveraging access policies that combine user identity and device context, such as location, time and security posture.

Centrify’s new capabilities and Android for Work partnership allow customers to confidently adopt multiple Google for Work products, including Android devices, Chromebooks, Google Compute Engine, and Google Apps for Work by providing a critical layer of security and management.

Tom Kemp, CEO of Centrify, said: “Centrify protects against the leading point of attack used in data breaches ― compromised credentials. Centrify’s identity platform can help companies enable Android for Work, as well as Google’s other cloud and mobile technologies for the enterprise, by providing security and management across users, apps, devices and infrastructure.”
