Centrify,
a leading provider of cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege to secure modern
enterprises, today announced that Centrify’s Privileged Access Service,
Authentication Service, Privilege Elevation Service, and Audit and
Monitoring Service (formerly Centrify Infrastructure Services) have
received authorization by the U.S. Government’s Federal Risk and
Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). Sponsored by the Overseas
Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), this authorization allows
government agencies to adopt Centrify’s cloud-ready service solutions
for Privileged Access Management (PAM) and bolster mission security as
they migrate an increasing amount of workloads to the cloud.

“Centrify is proud to have achieved a FedRAMP Authorization, which
requires rigorous testing to understand the risk posture and compliance
of the cloud system to meet the FedRAMP security controls and NIST
standards,” said Greg Cranley, Vice President, Federal and Public Sector
Sales at Centrify. “As more government agencies and contractors move
workloads to the cloud, they realize that they are also expanding their
attack surface and need to secure privileged access to critical cloud
infrastructure.”

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized
approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous
monitoring for cloud products and services. The objective is to ensure
adequate information security, eliminate duplication of effort, reduce
risk management costs, and enable rapid and cost-effective procurement
of information systems and services for federal agencies by using a “do
once, use many times” framework.

Additionally, Centrify’s Zero
Trust Privilege
Services have achieved many other Federal certifications
and compliances including FIPS 140-2, Common Criteria EAL2, DIACAP,
NIACAP, 508 Compliance and various ATOs for use on DOD and Intelligence
Community networks.

Centrify was also recently recognized as a Leader in all three of the
latest industry analyst reports evaluating vendors in the Privileged
Management market: the first-ever Gartner
Magic Quadrant for Privileged Access Management
in December 2018, The
Forrester Wave: Privileged Identity Management, Q4 2018,
and most
recently in the 2019
