SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 27, 2014 -- Centrify Corporation, the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced that the company posted record total sales in calendar year 2013 and more than 40 percent growth over the prior calendar year. With this growth, Centrify continued to grow its customer installed base, the largest share in its segment within the security market, while maintaining in excess of 97 percent customer retention rate. The company’s employee base also grew by approximately 30 percent over 2012, with total headcount now more than 400 personnel.
“Centrify continued to expand its solution set to comprehensively address identity needs for both on-premise and cloud environments while also taking a decidedly mobile-centric approach to identity that is critical given mobile devices are the growing method for accessing apps,” said Centrify CEO Tom Kemp. “Posting yet another record year for sales validates the differentiated approach Centrify offers that centralizes identities for improved security and management across data center, cloud and mobile. The company continues to expand globally through headcount and important partnerships, including here in the U.S. where we have moved to larger headquarters facilities to meet our continued rapid growth.”
