Bracknell, 30th November 2015 – Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats, today announced the appointment of two key partners, HANDD Business Solutions and Identity Methods, to boost momentum in the identity management space and broaden its audience.
The two new partners, HANDD, data security and managed file transfer experts, and Identity Methods, a leading provider of identity management and data masking solutions in the UK, have been appointed to strengthen and extend Centrify’s presence in the identity and access management market, both in the UK and Asia.

With a number of large house accounts, and a solid sales methodology, HANDD offers a different approach to the UK market, as well as providing a valuable connection to the Asian market, strengthening Centrify’s presence across the globe.
Chris Farrelly, HANDD Business Solutions Sales Director said “HANDD is very excited to be partnered with Centrify. Their strategy for growth is in line with HANDD’s vision and objectives and we believe this partnership will enhance the value we currently provide to our enterprise customers in the UK. With Centrify on-board, we will be offering solutions that uniquely address identity management across cloud, mobile and a variety of infrastructure platforms, enabling us to solve some of the top security issues that customers are facing today.
Commenting on the new partnership Matt Pearson, EMEA Channel Director, Centrify, says: “We are delighted to be partnering with HANDD as they have a great reputation within the end user community. This will be the start of a truly beneficial partnership as HANDD recognises identity as the next big security story, and we are confident in helping their customers tackle this security challenge.”
As identity management consultants, Identity Methods not only provides the Professional Services and installation aspect of projects, but also delivers a consultative approach to clients looking to secure their identities and access to critical and privileged accounts.
