FishNet Security Partners With Centrify to Provide Solutions for Data Center Security and Compliance

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  FishNet Security, the nation's leading provider of information security solutions that combine technology, services, support and training, today announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with Centrify Corporation, the leader in securing and auditing access to cross-platform systems and applications through Active Directory. FishNet Security will provide Centrify solutions, support, and related professional services to organizations who want to enhance their data center security by centralizing access control and privilege management for all of their non-Windows servers and desktops within Active Directory. FishNet Security will sell and support Centrify's security and compliance solutions from all of their offices throughout North America.

"We are pleased that FishNet Security has chosen to include Centrify among the solutions they offer organizations to help secure their corporate data centers and ensure they are compliant with regulations," said Frank Cabri, vice president of marketing at Centrify. "FishNet Security has a solid reputation for understanding their customers' business challenges and the technical expertise to help them solve them."

Compliance requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley, FISMA and PCI, as well as security best practices, dictate that organizations limit access to business-critical systems only to named users whose job role requires it, and they must audit and report on actions taken by those users. In cross-platform environments, establishing accountability by linking privileges and actions to named users can be a complex task. Though Active Directory provides a central repository for Windows user accounts, privileges to UNIX and Linux systems in particular may reside in multiple identity silos, or they may be managed locally system by system. Together, FishNet Security and Centrify address these IT security and compliance requirements with a comprehensive identity and access management solution that uses Microsoft Active Directory to centralize authentication, administration, access control, authorization and auditing of non-Microsoft systems and applications -- whether physical or virtual, on-premise or cloud-based.

"FishNet Security is pleased to include the Centrify Suite in our solution set," said Gordon Shevlin, executive vice president of business development for FishNet Security. "Adding Centrify's identity consolidation and access control solutions strengthens our already comprehensive array of IT product and service offerings, allowing us to better serve our customers security and compliance needs."
