Dubai, UAE, August 4, 2020 — Cyway, specializing in identity-centric security solutions, today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Centrify, a leading provider of Identity-Centric Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions, to expand its footprint in the Middle East and Africa.
Centrify is redefining the legacy approach to Privileged Access Management by delivering multi-cloud-architected Identity-Centric PAM to enable digital transformation at scale. Over half of the Fortune 100, the world’s largest financial institutions, intelligence agencies, and critical infrastructure companies, all trust Centrify to stop the leading cause of breaches – privileged credential abuse.
Centrify Identity-Centric PAM establishes trust, and then grants least privilege access just-in-time based on verifying who is requesting access, the context of the request, and the risk of the access environment. Centrify centralizes and orchestrates fragmented identities, improves audit and compliance visibility, and reduces risk, complexity, and costs for the modern, hybrid enterprise.
Centrify’s cloud-ready PAM services are built for the cloud from the ground up while supporting on-premises as well as hybrid environments. Furthermore, Centrify offers the flexibility and efficiency that is simply not possible with a legacy Privileged Access Management approach, which is often based on an appliance deployment.
Koshy Oommen, Director of Operations at Cyway, commented that “PAM must become the top priority for organizations today since the majority of today’s breaches are due to privileged credential abuse. With the changing security infrastructure landscape, Centrify’s architecture fits well for organizations with current on-prem infrastructure and intending to move workloads to the cloud by automating processes with DevOps and thereby forced to manage hundreds of containers or microservices. Cyway is excited about this strategic partnership that will bring the best-in-class unified identity solutions and services to our Partners and customers.
“This relationship with Cyway significantly expands the depth, breadth, and scope of our channel strategy in the Middle East and Africa,” said Kamel Heus, Regional Director, Northern, Southern Europe, Middle East and Africa at Centrify. “Digital transformation has created new attack surfaces like cloud, DevOps, containers and microservices have significantly expanded IT complexity. The modern enterprise requires a modern approach to privileged access management. Centrify’s Identity-Centric PAM solutions can help any organization optimise and secure privileged access, whether the requester is human or machine, in the cloud or on-premises.”
