Channel partners of Thycotic and Centrify have been told to expect business to go on as usual as the company integrates — with news of a rebranding and combined roadmap set for later this year.
According to an email to partners from CEO Art Gilliland and president Jim Legg, the merged company will be known as ThycoticCentrify in the interim, with key aspects of communications and operation likely to be mirrored across both entities.
“This new name is an easier way to talk about the combined company, and makes sense for the time being as both brands continue to operate ‘business-as-usual’ in the near term,” they wrote.
“Looking further down the road, we expect to rebrand the combined company with a new name that is aspirational, references the rich legacies of both companies, and communicates modern identity security.”
The final, resourced roadmap and integration plan will be published for all customers and partners within 90 days, no later than the end of July, according to a ThycoticCentrify FAQ update.
All regulatory hurdles have been cleared for the TPG Capital-driven acquisition announced in March and the company has kicked off the integration process this week, they said. The channel would remain vital, and partners will continue to work separately for the moment.
“We believe that the combined company and solutions will create a more valuable and attractive offering to solve the modern identity security needs in the market,” Gilliland and Legg confirmed.
“We are committed to keeping you apprised of the integration, the technology roadmap and integration, and the go-to-market strategy from ThycoticCentrify.”
The company websites have already begun the synchronisation process, with merger updates mirrored across both Centrify.com and Thycotic.com. The plan is to cover news around operations, technology integration, go-to-market, and more.
Thycotic’s lineup includes Secret Server, Privilege Manager, Account Lifecycle Manager and DevOps Secrets Vault, benefiting from cloud-access controls and behavioural analytics. It offers solutions for enterprise password management, least-privilege policies, devops and audit/compliance for financial services companies and others.
Centrify’s cloud platform similarly focuses on least privilege access at scale for humans and machines, with zero-trust PAM solutions that minimise account sharing.
