Knowledge Vault and Centrify Partner to Deliver Active Directory-Based Authentication to Extend Visibilty Across O365

Empowers Organizations to Securely Leverage Their Existing Identity Management Infrastructure

Knowledge Vault announced today a partnership with Centrify Corporation to enable seamless and secure one-click Single Sign-On (SSO) access to its SaaS based auditing, reporting and management platform for Microsoft Office 365. Knowledge Vault enables organizations to embrace cloud-based collaboration technologies while still retaining control.

This partnership and technical integration provides significant benefits to Knowledge Vault customers including:

  • Extending the power of Active Directory’s Kerberos and LDAP capabilities to enable organizations leverage existing Active Directory-based authentication for Knowledge Vault administrators and data consumers.
  • Providing enterprise-grade SSO functionality that enables users to be more productive and secure by allowing them to log-in as themselves, rather than sharing privileged accounts.

Christian Ehrenthal, CEO and co-founder, Knowledge Vault, explained:
“The lack of visibility and control over cloud content and processes is a problem for CIOs, CTOs, and those charged with managing IT security, risk and compliance. There is a growing demand for organizations to audit, document and analyze activities, enforce processes and oversee risk across cloud-based collaboration and content-sharing technologies. The integration between Knowledge Vault and Centrify creates a simplified identity infrastructure for IT while optimizing the end user experience.”

Shreyas Sadalgi, SVP Business Development, Centrify, commented:
“In order for a solution to gain adoption, it must be easy to access and secure. Centrify makes it simple to run Knowledge Vault in a secure mode by leveraging our existing identity management infrastructure. This dovetails perfectly with the mandates of our platform, which include increasing producitivity while ensuring safety in the Cloud.”
