Ashburn, VA (PRWEB) December 08, 2011
Intelligent Decisions (ID), Inc., a premier global IT systems integrator, today announces a new partnership with Centrify Corporation to deliver integrated access management solutions to the Federal Government. Specifically, Centrify software will be combined with ID’s Cloud, Network Convergence and Cyber Security Practices to provide agencies and organizations with control over which systems users can access, how they access those systems, what privileges they have once they are granted access, and then audit activity they performed on the system.
Together, ID and Centrify will address a very complicated problem that government agencies and organizations have faced for years regarding identity and privilege access management – with the added benefits of much lower management costs, far better compliance, and significantly improved security.
“Centrify is a proven company that has established a strong reputation as a leader in providing security and compliance solutions for IT systems access on-site and in the cloud,” said Harry Martin, president and CEO of Intelligent Decisions. “We are particularly excited about Centrify’s enterprise integration solutions for Apple Macs as the product gains momentum in the Federal IT landscape”
“Intelligent Decisions has been a leading global IT systems integrator to the Federal Government for more than 20 years, and we are pleased to be working with them to extend Centrify’s innovative security solutions to their customers,” said Gary Taggart, VP of Worldwide Sales. “Centrify’s focus on the Federal sector helps government agencies address compliance and access controls across users and systems. Government agencies continue to consolidate data centers, improve security and embrace cloud infrastructure, and working with these agencies we deliver the identity consolidation and privilege management solutions that are critical to addressing their needs.”
Whether working to meet PCI data security standards, SOX IT compliance, or Federal Information Security Management Act regulations, or to protect intellectual property and data center resources in an increasingly borderless network, IT organizations are deploying identity-aware security solutions that provide centralized visibility and control over identities, user access rights, privileges and administration.
Centrify’s Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS)-validated solution has broad acceptance throughout Federal, defense and civilian agencies for its reliable identity consolidation and privileged access management solutions. The Centrify Suite has been awarded the FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validation, assuring government customers, defense contractors, systems integrators and resellers that Centrify products provide the highest level of protection for sensitive information, and comply with strict government security regulations.
The Centrify Suite allows these organizations to centrally control, secure and audit access to cross-platform systems and applications by leveraging an infrastructure they already own – Microsoft Active Directory. Built on an integrated architecture, the Centrify Suite strengthens security, enhances regulatory compliance initiatives, and reduces IT expense and complexity. The Suite – consisting of DirectControl, DirectAuthorize, DirectAudit, DirectSecure and DirectManage – delivers secure authentication and single sign-on, role-based authorization, privilege management, user-level auditing, trust-based protection of sensitive systems, and encryption of data in motion for the industry’s broadest set of cross-platform systems and applications.
