Centrify Corporation, a player in securing identities from cyber threats, has announced the appointment of TIG Limited to its Centrify Channel Partner Network in the UK. The announcement demonstrates continued momentum for Centrify products in the channel, following the appointment of Matt Pearson, the company's new EMEA channel director in May.
Solutions provider TIG has a strong customer base of large corporates within the City of London. By connecting into this customer network, Centrify will strengthen its focus on the financial services and insurance sectors and have a stronger footprint in the City. TIG's experience with cloud and mobile environments also complements Centrify's offerings.
The partnership will enable TIG to offer Centrify single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, privileged identity management and shared account password management to better serve customers needs.
"Large enterprises in the financial services sector have traditionally been slow at embracing the cloud and Bring Your Own Devices but this is changing," says Andy Thomson, EMEA channel manager, Centrify. "The rise of cloud-based Office365 and a growing acceptance of Apple devices in the workplace is driving demand for Centrify's solutions among financial institutions. The Centrify TIG partnership will make it easier for these organisations to secure every aspect of this new hybrid way of working."
"We looked at other players in the identity management space and found Centrify to have the most complete and robust products, especially from a cloud perspective," comments George Georgiou, sales director TIG. "Centrify's integrated platform means that we can offer customers functions such as Single Sign On or Mobile Device Management without incurring additional cost or complexity. Centrify will sit at the forefront of what TIG is doing from an identity management perspective and will be a critical part of our cloud offering."
"Centrify's channel strategy is clearly working," adds Matt Pearson, EMEA channel director, Centrify. "Partners are attracted to our commitment to support a limited number of high-calibre partners in the best possible way without spreading our services too thinly across the channel. We're excited to add TIG to our partner network and look forward to building the relationship further."
Centrify launched its Channel Partner Network, a global network of world-class solution providers, including VARs, system integrators and distributors, in January 2014. The program allows partners to grow and profit by delivering unified identity services that help customers strengthen security, meet compliance requirements, reduce IT expenses, and extend and enable the cloud and mobile enterprise.
