(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 --
Centrify Corporation, the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced that its channel revenue contribution nearly doubled in 2013 and that its enhanced Centrify Channel Partner Network, launched in January 2014, is rapidly expanding. Strategic planning, enablement and lead generation efforts are accelerating channel contribution with expected 90 percent growth of channel contributed revenue by the end of Centrify's fiscal year in June. At the Premier Level, the top tier of Centrify's channel program, partners have contributed heavily to this trend, and are recognizing strong margin and revenue growth. Some of Centrify's newest partners include SoftwareONE, Corus360, FishNet Security and Mainline Information Systems, among others.
Centrify's solutions deliver a single login for users and unified identity infrastructure for IT. Centrify's software and cloud services allow joint customers to securely leverage their existing identity infrastructure to enable single sign-on, role-based access control, privileged identity management, auditing, and compliance across on-premise and cloud resources. With Centrify, channel partners can offer their customers a better way to reduce operational and helpdesk costs by centralizing identity management and standardizing on a single set of tools and processes. Centrally managing access rights and privileges strengthens security and enforces consistent security policies across heterogeneous systems.
"Centrify's solutions provide a unique value to our customers by allowing them to integrate user access into Active Directory, apply granular role-based access, and maintain audit logs to achieve regulation compliance," said Jeff Dobbelaere, vice president of technical sales support at Mainline Information Systems. "Mainline is proud to be a Centrify Premier Partner and to offer their industry leading solutions to our clients. With data security on the minds of every enterprise, Centrify is an integral part of Mainline's strategy."

Centrify's partner levels include Premier, Select and Authorized. Premier Partners such as SoftwareONE, Corus360, FishNet Security and Mainline Information Systems receive the highest level of privileges and rewards and have the closest working relationship with Centrify. They are experts in multiple competencies and have made a significant commitment to actively sell Centrify's solutions and jointly plan for revenue growth. They receive the most competitive deal registration discounts as well as privileged access to sales tools and collateral, reward programs, marketing funds, sales leads and more.
Select Partners -- the next tier of channel partners -- not only sell Centrify solutions, but also use them internally. Having made a larger training investment, they receive access to leads, sales tools and collateral, additional deal registration discounts, reward programs and marketing funds. Finally, Authorized Partners meet the minimum sales and technical training requirements needed to sell Centrify solutions. They also receive access to sales tools and collateral, and benefit from deal registration and reward programs.
