Centrify Selected to Present on Future of Secure, Universal Access at Oppenheimer West Coast Software Showcase

Company Co-Founder and CEO Tom Kemp to Present on Upcoming Innovations for Centralizing Enterprise Security and Compliance for Protecting Systems on Premise and in the Cloud

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/26/12 -- Centrify Corporation, the leading provider of security and compliance solutions that centrally control, secure and audit access to cross-platform systems, mobile devices and applications using Active Directory, today announced that company Co-Founder and CEO Tom Kemp has been selected to present on the future of secure, universal access in an increasingly cloud and mobile world at the Oppenheimer West Coast Software Showcase on June 28 in Palo Alto, Calif.

Mr. Kemp will discuss the impact of the proliferation of mobile devices and cloud-based systems and applications on the security and compliance posture of today's organizations. Mr. Kemp will make the case that across this changing sea of heterogeneous devices and systems and applications the one constant is identity, and how identity is becoming critical to not only control what a user can access but also to enable single sign-on. The discussion will highlight the fact that as more organizations and users embrace the cloud, the traditional Security 1.0 approach of "protect the perimeter" becomes less relevant and identity in effect becomes the new perimeter.

"The Oppenheimer Software Showcase is an important series of events to educate enterprise attendees and investors on the latest in software innovations, and what to expect in the future," said Mr. Kemp. "A big part of that future consists of organizations having to manage a hybrid environment that consists of their existing, on-premise infrastructure while they also enable their users with new mobile devices and cloud-based applications. These hybrid and increasingly heterogeneous environments require a centralized approach for securing and managing access from any user endpoint to any on-premise or cloud resource. Centrify's approach -- which allows enterprises to leverage existing Active Directory infrastructure to manage it all -- provides an identity-centric model for bridging the on-premise, cloud and mobile environments to provide IT the visibility and control they need."
