Centrify launches tech partner program to secure mobile, cloud apps
Identity management software maker Centrify is launching a new partner program providing developers, cloud and mobile independent software vendors--ISVs--the tools to jointly build integrated solutions allowing customers secure access to mobile and cloud applications.
The Centrify Alliance Partner Program enables partners like Dropbox and Zoom to address joint customer demands in the software-as-a-service and mobile device management markets. For example, CAPP partners may support the Centrify Mobile Authentication Services software development kit to provide customers with Centrify's Zero Sign-on validation solution across their mobile apps. There are also more than 2,000 cloud applications integrated with Centrify providing single sign-on and role-based access control, the firm said.
In addition, CAPP partners are given access to Centrify training, licenses and publications--as well as joint development and integration testing--and sales and marketing resources.
Developers and ISVs can choose between three levels of Centrify CAPP partnerships. The Developer Partner level provides cloud and mobile developers with a free solution for integrating their apps with the Active Directory-based Zero Sign-on. Developer Partners also receive discounts on Centrify products, services and support and obtain access to Centrify APIs.
The CAPP Business Partner level touts SaaS, mobile and Mac solutions--including single sign-on and mobile container, application and device management tools. Centrify also works with partners to implement joint marketing and sales strategies, including opportunities to cross-sell, upsell or promote solutions to Centrify customers.
The CAPP Premier Partner level employs Centrify's strategic partnerships with technology allies. According to Centrify, its premier partners have proven success in cross-selling and recommending its products globally and this program level offers access to Centrify's customers for mutual benefit.
