The company formerly known as ThycoticCentrify has unveiled a new name and new branding today, continuing business under the name Delinea.

Delinea was initially formed in April 2021 from the merger of Thycotic and Centrify. Nine months later, the company has launched its new brand identity to signify its progress as a combined company and specialisatoin in privileged access management.

Art Gilliland continues on as Delinea CEO after heading the merged ThycoticCentrify company since March 2021.

Gilliland says Delinea's mission is to provide ‘invisible' security to the end user whilst providing the control that IT and security teams need.

“With Delinea, the boundaries of access are easily defined to help customers reduce risk, ensure compliance, and streamline security. We are providing privileged access without the excess.

TPG Capital partner Tim Millikin says the brand launch marks a milestone in the journey towards building an identity security platform and product suite.

He calls Delinia “the next generation of cloud-based privileged access, purpose-built for enterprises operating in today's hybrid, perimeter-less and ever-evolving world”.

Decently, Delinea was named a Customers' Choice in the December 2021 Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer report for PAM.  Gartner also named Delinea as an ‘established' PAM provider based on factors including user interest and user adoption.

Thycotic and Centrify were evaluated separately for the Voice of the Customer report for PAM, and as ThycoticCentrify for subsequent analysis throughout the year.

Delinea SVP of product management, Jon Kuhn, says it is important to be confident in the decision-making process for any technology solution.

“Even more so when choosing the right solution to secure privileged access to your most critical systems, infrastructure, and data.

He notes that Delinea customers' insights are invaluable to the company.

“Gartner Peer Insights enables them to be publicly shared amongst their peers for more informed research and purchasing decisions. We are proud that Delinea has been recognized as a Customers' Choice for PAM based on the opinions and reviews of IT and security leaders who use our solutions.”
