  • Centrify Your Users. Gives users the single login users want.
  • Centrify Your Security. Apply the same identity policies across data center, cloud and mobile.
  • Centrify Your IT. Leverage Active Directory to centrally manage data center, cloud and mobile.

As organizations increasingly supplement and replace their on-premise IT infrastructure with cloud and mobile platforms, Centrify believes efficiently and securely managing user's digital identities in this hybrid IT environment becomes even more important.

We believe the end result of one single login for users and one unified architecture for IT is a compelling value proposition for you and your organization.

    I have been working at Centrify full-time (less than a year)


    I came to Centrify looking for a smart tech startup with a savvy management team, and got that plus a culture so great it's almost unbelievable. The people are smart, communicative, collaborative, and really care about the company and each other. I realize it sounds corny, but I'm excited to get in every day and I don't want to leave. Having been in the big corporate grind, where everything is silos and politics and red tape, it is such a breath of fresh air to be able to make real contributions that matter and work with a team that is also excited, intelligent and driven.


    You've gotta commute the 101. Seriously, that's all I've got. The company is in serious growth mode so there are the associated challenges, but the management team is meeting those opportunities head-on and really working with everyone in the company to get there. It's busy - if you are looking for something cushy and easy, look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an eye on the culture piece - it's great, and it takes work to keep it as you grow.
