ThycoticCentrify integrates Secret Server into privileged access platform

ThycoticCentrify has taken the wraps off its first integration of Secret Server with its privileged access management (PAM) platform, as once-separate Thycotic and Centrify merge their offerings.

Brad Shewmake, writing for ThycoticCentrify, said the move expands the cloud platform’s usefulness for hybrid organisations with SaaS-delivered access services and will help Windows and Linux users customise privileged access.

“The combination avails Secret Server customers ot a range of SaaS services, establishing the foundation of modern PAM strategies and centralising access and visibility to credentials for faster time to access, risk identification, and resolution,” Shewmake said.

Secret Server offers privileged account and session management, but will now also harness platform capabilities including improved remote access incorporating VPN-less login and more “second factors” for multi-factor authentication, he said.

David McNeely, chief technology officer at ThycoticCentrify, said the platform connects the vendor’s “core vaulting and privilege elevation solutions” across cloud architectures.

“Centralising access empowers security and IT teams to quickly access a range of accounts across multiple vaults, whether optimising day-to-day operations or during time-critical instances such as active cyber-attacks,” said McNeely.

Shewmake added that unless user identity is consistent, access can be denied when they log in to different Linux systems, mount central file shares, and create files and folders.

“In the 21.7 release, when a user with a Linux profile defined in the platform logs into a Linux server, (previously Centrify’s) Cloud Suite ensures their correct profile attributes are associated with the session,” Shewmake wrote.

“The clients on the host systems perform user identifier and group identifier rationalisation and preserve this across user sessions.”

More information is in the release notes.
