ThycoticCentrify has announced that Thycotic has been named a Customers Choice in the December 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Voice of the Customer report for privileged access management.

Centrify was also included in the report, listed as an Established PAM provider based on user interest and adoption. 

ThycoticCentrify, is a provider of cloud identity security solutions. The company was formed by the merger of Thycotic and Centrify,

Gartner defines privileged access management as, tools that help organisations provide secure privileged access to critical assets and meet compliance requirements by managing and monitoring privileged accounts and access. 

Thycotic and Centrify were evaluated separately for the Voice of the Customer report for PAM after their merger in April 2021 and integration as ThycoticCentrify throughout the year. Both companies were also named Leaders in the 2021 Gartner Magic QuadrantTM for PAM. 

"It is important to have confidence when selecting any technology solution, but perhaps even more so when choosing the right solution to secure privileged access to your most critical systems, infrastructure, and data," says Jon Kuhn, senior vice president of product management at ThycoticCentrify.

"Our customers insights are invaluable to us, and Gartner Peer Insights enables them to be publicly shared amongst their peers for more informed research and purchasing decisions," he says.

"We are proud that Thycotic has been recognised as a Customers Choice for PAM based on the opinions and reviews of IT and security leaders who use our solutions."

Meanwhile, ThycoticCentrify has also announced a new and expanded capabilities for its specialised PAM solution, Secret Server.

With the addition of new security controls, automation and design updates, Secret Server builds on its secrets management capabilities and ease of use to offer more protection and higher productivity, the company states.

To enhance auditing and compliance, Secret Server ensures that only one privileged user at a time can use a secret. When secrets arent checked back in to Secret Server after use, critical maintenance operations cant be performed and productivity slows.

The latest release also automatically checks in secrets for API connections after expiration. Additionally, users now have more visibility into remaining time on a secret checkout and can extend the checkout if required.
