MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 9 - Centrify Corporation, the leading provider of Microsoft Active Directory-based auditing, access control and identity management solutions for non-Microsoft platforms, today announced its expanded Channel partner program now extends around the globe, delivering assessment, deployment and customization of Centrify's DirectAudit and award-winning DirectControl solutions. Centrify has grown its base of active reseller partners and service providers from a handful in the U.S. and Europe to over 40 including South America, Africa, Asia and Australia. Centrify has enlisted partners with the special combination of skills that allow them to provide in-depth services to customers seeking to integrate the identity management of their Linux, UNIX, Macs, web applications and databases into Microsoft Active Directory.

"We are committed to ensuring that enterprises get the best identity management products, services and support, and our channel partners are essential to fulfilling that commitment," said Richard Weeks, Director of Worldwide Channel Development for Centrify. "Across the globe, we are partnering with organizations whose high levels of technical skill and business acumen have distinguished them with the customers they serve."

"Centrify solves important security and operations problems for our customers," said Sylvain Cortes, partnership manager for Cerberis. "Centrify DirectControl is an important extension to our Microsoft identity management services and solutions." Based in Grenoble, France, Cerberis is a value-added distributor specializing in solutions that complement Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Identity Integration Server and other Microsoft applications and management platforms.

"Our customers rely on us to provide them with reliable, cost-efficient IT solutions and to help them manage their multi-platform environments while keeping things simple and secure. Centrify solutions deliver the authentication, access control, and the comprehensive group policy support they need for centralized control and consistent security," said Stephan Pinheiro, CEO of HumanIT. Based in Montreal, Canada, HumanIT is a turnkey consulting and integration firm providing enterprise-class services and solutions in the fields of Identity Access Management and Data and Content Management to the digital content-creation industries nationwide.

"We are confident about Centrify's technology and value the outstanding degree of support they have given to help us be successful in both pre- and post-sales engagements," said Andrew Ferguson, Marketing Director for eB2Bcom(Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd based in Singapore. "Many companies approach eB2Bcom each year asking us to distribute their solutions into our markets, but we are very particular about who we work with. Because we are in a completely different time zone, it is absolutely critical that the vendor have a robust product, a good track record in their own local market, and excellent pre- and post sales technical support. Centrify has been a breath of fresh air to us because the Marketing and pre-sales efforts have surpassed many of our more established partners. On top of this both the product solution and the post-sales back up are excellent." eB2Bcom in Australia & New Zealand and eB2Bcom (Asia Pacific) in ASEAN specialize in Identity and Access Management, IT & Data Security, and solutions for the defense, police, homeland security and intelligence sectors. eB2Bcom has offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, and Brisbane in Australia; and in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong in Asia.
