Centrify Achieves Record Sales and Accelerated Company Growth Worldwide 
Samsung OEM Deal Highlights Fiscal Year in Which Company Posted Its
Best-Ever Fiscal Year Revenues and Bookings 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/31/13 --  Centrify Corporation,
the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and
mobile, today announced that its fiscal year 2013 ending June 30 saw
the company post its best-ever fiscal year, with record bookings and
revenue; and that it is on track to exceed plans to grow sales more
than 40 percent when comparing the current calendar year to last
calendar year. 
In addition to record sales, the company grew its installed base to a
total of more than 5,000 customers, the largest market share in the
industry. On the customer adoption front, Centrify now has as
customers nearly half of the Fortune 50; more than half of the top 12
telecommunications companies worldwide, top 10 pharmaceutical
companies worldwide, and top five US retailers; and half of the top
10 technology companies worldwide. The company has also achieved a 97
percent retention rate of customers over the past three years. 
"Not only did Centrify post its best-ever fiscal year and best-ever
quarters as a company, but we continued to significantly extend our
solution beyond the data center to comprehensively address identity
needs for both cloud and mobile, a winning recipe as validated by
recent customer wins and our Samsung OEM agreement," said Centrify
CEO Tom Kemp. "Moving forward we are very bullish on our business and
in our belief that we offer the industry the most comprehensive
vision for Unified Identity Services that spans across data center,
cloud and mobile. At the end of the day what we offer to customers is
a 'must have' solution -- a single login for their end users and one
unified identity infrastructure for their IT organizations." 
In addition to reaching significant records on sales, new customer
and growth fronts, Centrify also achieved the following milestones
during FY 2013: 


 
--  Inked an OEM software license and marketing agreement with Samsung
    Electronics Co, Ltd., to embed Centrify's technology into the Samsung
    KNOX Android-based solution for multi-application SSO for mobile and
    web apps, allowing customers to use their existing infrastructure --
    Microsoft Active Directory -- to manage KNOX containers, Samsung
    devices and role-based access to mobile applications centrally and
    easily. The Centrify and Samsung partnership also includes re-sale of
    Centrify premium mobile and SaaS Single Sign-on (SSO) offerings via
    Samsung partners, as well as joint marketing to Samsung customers and
    partners.

    "sudo" migration tools for Linux systems to enable organizations to
    quickly and effectively meet compliance requirements, mitigate risks
    from internal threats, and reduce operational costs across the
    broadest set of cross-platform systems deployed on-premise and in the
    cloud.

    mobile applications to cloud services.
    
    
--  Earned two highly respected cloud operations and security distinctions

    of its internal controls, assuring customers that their data is secure
    and confidential in the Centrify Cloud Service; and earning the TRUSTe
    Certified Privacy Seal, signifying that its privacy statement and
    associated practices to protect customer data are compliant with the

    fiscal year.
