MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 15 / -- Centrify Corporation, a leading provider of Microsoft Active Directory-based authentication, access control and auditing solutions for non-Microsoft platforms, today launched the Centrify Partner Network to provide opportunities and resources to support global system integrators, value added resellers, distributors and consultants that help IT organizations address compliance requirements, secure their heterogeneous computing environments and enhance operational efficiencies. Centrify's software complements partner expertise by delivering innovative identity management and auditing capabilities that leverage the pervasive installation of Microsoft Active Directory.

"Centrify is committed to establishing a channel-friendly distribution model with programs that are designed to increase the success of our partners," said Jim Chappell, VP of Worldwide Field Operations. "We have invested heavily in the last year to build a comprehensive sales, service, training and support infrastructure for our channel partners. The program is designed to ensure that our partners can rely on Centrify people, processes and technology to support them as they solve problems for their customers."

With over 25 partners worldwide already on board, Centrify has established a strong reputation for technical expertise.

"Centrify had the technology, the expertise and an appreciation of our capabilities and relationship with the customer. Their solution fit the customer's requirements and their support for CSS exceeded our expectations for a reliable vendor partner."

"Centrify has provided us with superior support and solutions," said Walter Marmo, President of Eurosel S.r.l., a leading reseller of IT solutions based in Turin, Italy.
