Centrify is an identity management software and cloud-based Identity-as-a-Service ("IDaaS") provider that allows enterprises to manage identities and secure access across computer networks and cloud computing environments.[1][2] The company was formed in 2004.[3] The Centrify Identity Platform protects against a leading point of attack used in data breaches ― compromised credentials — by securing an enterprise’s internal and external users as well as its privileged accounts. Customers typically use Centrify for single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, mobile and Mac management, privileged access security and session monitoring.[4] It is located in Santa Clara, California.[5][6]
