What is Centrify Privileged Access Service?

Centrify Privilege Service provides all of your IT administration teams with secure, granular access to infrastructure regardless of location, and without the hassles of a VPN.
Secure browser-based access Authorized IT users launch management sessions for resources directly from the Privilege Service portal. Sessions use SSH and RDP protocols, and are always protected end-to-end.

Access across organizational boundaries Privilege Service enables you to authenticate your IT users through Active Directory, LDAP Centrify Cloud Directory, or Google G Suite
Directory. You can use one or any combination of these identity stores to grant granular access to employees, business partners and outside vendors.

Grant access to specific resources Unlike a VPN, Privilege Service enables you to grant access to
resources on a on a per-resource basis. This means that you can easily give your internal IT admins access to as much of your infrastructure as necessary, while limiting access by an outsourced
team to only the servers and network hardware their business role or IT function requires.

Access from any location Your IT admins can log in and securely access resources from any location that can reach the Privilege Service. For user logins outside the corporate network, you can require Centrify’s built-in multi-factor authentication for security stronger than a user name and password.

Centrify Privileged Access Service is also known as Centrify Zero Trust Privilege Services, Centrify Zero Trust Privilege, Centrify Infrastructure Services, Centrify Server Suite, Centrify Privilege Service.

Straightforward to set up and easy to deploy but it needs support for software-defined infrastructure

What is our primary use case?

This solution manages privileged access for all of our privileged accounts.

Pros and Cons

  • "This is a cloud-based application, which makes it very easy to deploy."
  • "This solution needs better integration with third-party solutions because their ability to support other tools is very weak."

What other advice do I have?

The suitability of this solution depends on the environment because every organization is different. If somebody is looking for a straightforward PAM that is easy to deploy then I would recommend Centrify. If on the other hand, they have a more advanced or more complex environment with a software-defined infrastructure then I would suggest they use another solution. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
