The webinar, entitled "Deadlines Passed, But Merchants Still Out of Compliance" will address the major issues facing merchants as they strive for compliance, and explore the tactics used to overcome those issues.

"Our customers have adopted Centrify solutions to increase their security, improve their IT efficiency and help comply with rules."
