Centrify has announced the launch of a new partner program marketed as the Centrify Zero Trust Security Network. The new program is designed to unify its community of technology partners, making it possible for new and existing customers to more easily integrate complementary technologies with their Santa Clara-based company’s solutions.
The program, previously known as the Centrify Alliance Partner Program (CAPP), establishes an ecosystem of ISVs whose solutions are commonly used in conjunction with each other. The network spans product categories including Analytics, Big Data, Collaboration, Communications, Cloud, CRM, Customer Service, Education, ERP, Finance, HR, IT Workflows, Productivity, and Security, including CASB, Identity Governance, Next-Gen Firewalls and SIEM.
“As identity and passwords are the primary point of attack for data breaches, organizations need to rethink their approach to security and move to an identity-centric approach based on a Zero Trust model,” said Ben Rice, Vice President, Business Development at Centrify. “Combined with Centrify Next-Gen Access, these solutions enable our joint customers to strengthen security by implementing an ‘always verify’ approach for everything ― including users, endpoints, networks, servers, and applications.”
Program features and benefits include referral rewards, extensive pre-sales and field training, joint webinars and events, key account targeting, joint sales and marketing campaigns, user events, joint client roadshows, and joint marketing communications.
Current key partners include Palo Alto Networks, ServiceNow, HashiCorp, SailPoint Technologies, McAfee, Cylance, Exabeam, Bitglass, Netskope, and Carbon Black.
SaaS and IaaS present a variety of security challenges for enterprises. Programs that help multiple companies to more easily combine their security value propositions can go a long way towards making customers safer and, by extension, build greater channel success.
