 Building the Next Generation of Identity and Access–Next-Gen Access – Idaptive

Who you are and what you have access to are the foundational pieces of most of our online experiences. Whether we’re at work or at home, managing a complex IT infrastructure or watching a movie on the couch, identity and access shapes nearly every experience we have, dictating how we interact with products, services, brands and each other.

That foundational importance of identity and access is the driving force behind Idaptive. We spun out of Centrify so that we can focus solely on IDaaS with a laser-like focus toward building innovative products that will let companies shape the future of how we work, live and play online, while also making sure those experiences are secure.

We’re here to build the next generation of identity and access.

Customers First

Most importantly, Idaptive’s sole focus on identity and access technologies will allow us to do what’s best for our customers. While identity has become more essential in our online lives, it’s also become a bigger target for bad actors. According to various research, 79 percent of companies have already experienced a breach, and 81 percent of all breaches involve a weak or stolen password. It’s imperative that companies adopt strategies and technologies that ensure that every user is verified and every device is validated.

In this new world, it’s not enough for companies to keep their data secure by trusting a password or trying to create a secure perimeter around their data. It’s also not sustainable to apply rigorous policies that promote maximum security, but also introduce tremendous friction.

Companies need to adopt a Zero Trust strategy, backed by next-gen access technology that can evaluate, learn from and adapt to context and risk in a way that protects data and also offers intense freedom for users to securely access data everywhere. If they don’t, they risk poor security postures, data breaches and unhappy customers –– and at worst, irrelevance. Idaptive is doing just that ––protecting companies in this new world, while offering exceptional freedom for users to safely access data everywhere. Our platform uses real-time data and adaptive technologies to allow companies to make smarter decisions at scale about who they let in. Our unique combination of SSO, MFA, EMM, and UBA technologies is the cornerstone of all this, from the insights we derive, to the use cases we implement, and the incredible success we have with customers.

As we make more and better products, our goal will always be to make our customers our biggest fans by helping to build innovative companies that create amazing experiences for their customers. As we continue to build the future of identity and access, we want to be sure our customers are as much a part of it as we are. It’ll be a fun ride –– see you there.

Danny Kibel – Idaptive CEO
Chief Executive Officer

Danny Kibel is Chief Executive Officer at Idaptive, leading the overall strategy and vision for this newcomer to the identity and access management market. Under Danny’s direction, Idaptive is establishing its Next-Gen Access Cloud platform as the cornerstone of the Zero Trust approach to security, securing access for everyone, everywhere and on every device.

Prior to taking the helm at Idaptive, Danny was Vice President of Engineering & Operations at Centrify, where he led the development and delivery of the company’s cloud identity and mobility products.

With more than 20 years of experience designing, developing and delivering software, Danny has combined his deep technical background and strong business perspective to help create and deliver innovative products and solutions for enterprise software companies worldwide. Prior to his leadership roles at Idaptive and Centrify, he was a senior director at ServiceNow, leading several teams that automated and managed application releases in cloud environments. Before that, Danny was a senior software manager at Cisco for nearly eight years. Earlier in his career, he led the delivery and solutions team for a startup company that was later acquired by Cisco.

Danny graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with a degree in computer science and later earned an MBA in marketing and technology management from Tel Aviv University.


If Danny could have any chameleon-like superpower, it would be the chameleon's 360-degree vision. In the wild, the chameleon is faced with opportunities (a yummy grasshopper hanging about), as well as dangers (a snake lurking nearby, or a hawk flying up above), so having 360- degree vision helps the chameleon evolve while protecting it from predators. “Similarly, to run a successful business, one needs to have a wide perspective of the market, technology, opportunities and challenges.”
