BlackBerry partners with Centrify to provide Secure Access on Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform

New solution offers ironclad identity security for thousands of cloud and on-premises apps and servers via integrated single sign-on and multi-factor authentication

BlackBerry is partnering with Centrify to provide secure access on the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform to thousands of cloud and on-premises apps and servers, with integrated SSO (Single Sign On) and Multi-factor Authentication.

This combination of SSO, MFA and secure access to apps and servers on secure mobile containers is new to the market, and provides highly regulated customers, such as those in financial services, with the ability to safely use mobile devices without compromising security.

Centrify will deliver a smartcard-derived credential solution for use on Good-secured mobile devices. This means BlackBerry customers can use Centrify’s Identity Service (CIS) to ‘export’ their smartcards into Good’s secure mobile container and then use it as a strong authentication for securely accessing applications.

No-one in the industry provides a seamless, easy to use solution to “port” smartcards to their mobile devices, providing access to cloud or mobile apps (without using smartcards anymore).

Customers using BlackBerry’s mobility solutions have the highest levels of encryption and security for mobile application data—both in motion and at rest. With Centrify, customers now have a seamless solution for the use of smartcards for secure access on Good-secured devices. Centrify provides turnkey, password-free access to thousands of apps within the Good secure container, as well as support for smartcard-derived credentials for secure authentication to the Good container.

Centrify’s Identity Service ports smartcards into Good’s mobile container to gain strong authentication for secure access of apps and server passwords. With the Centrify mobile app now on the Good Dynamics marketplace, any customer can instantly install Centrify on Good-secured devices. This means an organization can benefit from the many security features of Centrify’s Identity Service and Privilege Service products.

“We are extremely proud to provide an even greater level of security for highly regulated customers in the government and financial sectors that use Good Powered by BlackBerry for email and applications,” said Shreyas Sadalgi, SVP of Business Development at Centrify.

“This is the solution the market has been waiting for as it allows organizations to work more securely without slowing down employees or hampering productivity.”

Mark Wilson, SVP and Chief Evangelist at BlackBerry said,

“With the support of Centrify’s solution, we are expanding the portfolio of third party business solutions for Good Dynamics,”

“These applications give users alternative strong authentication-based choices in accessing data on their devices.”

Here’s what the Centrify solution delivers to the Good platform:

MFA for cloud and on-premises apps and servers from mobile devices, based on context of app, device, location, user role and more:

  • Now companies can secure access from mobile devices with a second factor including smartcard/derived credentials, certificates, and biometrics.

Secure SSO to cloud and on-premises apps from within the Good Dynamics mobile container:

  • Customers can leverage from the enhanced Centrify portfolio on Good Dynamics. Centrify offers SSO access to thousands of cloud and on-premises apps , all from within the Good secure container.
  • Support for accessing custom apps from the Good secure container without the need to redeploy or recompile the app with specialized SDKs.

Privileged secure remote access to servers:

  • Customers can leverage secured mobile devices for MFA to server resources, or retrieve break-glass access to mission critical server passwords from their Good-secured mobile devices.
