Centrify Named Best Privileged Account Security Product in Cyber Defense Magazine’s 2019 InfoSec Awards

Centrify is redefining the legacy approach to Privileged Access
Management by delivering cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Centrify,
a leading provider of cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege to secure modern
enterprises, today announced that Cyber Defense Magazine, a premier
source of IT Security information, has named Centrify the Best
Privileged Account Security Product in its 2019 InfoSec Awards.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for our commitment to help stop the
leading cause of breaches – privileged credential abuse,” said Andy
Smith, vice president of product marketing at Centrify. “It’s critical
that companies secure privileged access with a Zero Trust approach to
reduce risk and limit access to sensitive data and critical
infrastructure. Zero Trust Privilege helps enterprises grant least
privilege access based on verifying who is requesting access, the
context of the request, and the risk of the access environment.”

Catastrophic data breaches have become more common in a mobile-first,
cloud-first world. Cyber attackers are no longer hacking their way in;
they are logging in using weak or compromised passwords, then moving
laterally across the network to gain privileged access to steal data and
cover their tracks. In fact, a recent Centrify
study
found that privileged credential abuse is involved in 74
percent of data breaches. From a hacker’s perspective, privileged access
is one of the easiest ways to reach sensitive and potentially valuable
information that can then be exploited.

To stop this leading cause of breaches, Centrify is redefining the
legacy approach to Privileged Access Management by delivering
cloud-ready Zero
Trust Privilege
to secure infrastructure, DevOps, cloud, containers,
Big Data and other modern attack surfaces.

“With Cybercrime continuing to gain momentum, surpassing global drug
crime last year and projected to reach over $1T in theft and damages in
2019, we are proud to see Centrify as an award-winning innovator,
offering a new approach to defeat these criminals,” said Pierlugi
Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
