NetIQ Extends AD-centric Identity Management to Heterogeneous IT Environments

Centrify Relationship Enhances Solutions to Reduce the Cost and Complexity of Meeting Compliance

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 12/08/09 -- To help organizations better demonstrate consistent audit controls for role-based entitlements and user access -- the most difficult compliance requirements of PCI DSS, SOX, HIPAA, NERC, FISMA and others -- NetIQ Corporation today announced the availability of NetIQ® Identity Integration Suite(TM). As a result, NetIQ now provides a fully integrated solution that leverages Microsoft Active Directory to centralize the management of identities and access controls across Microsoft, UNIX, Linux, VMware ESX and Apple Mac OS X platforms.

NetIQ Identity Integration Suite helps organizations achieve compliance and improve efficiencies by:

--  Centralizing cross-platform directory administration -- Eliminates
    redundant identity stores, provides administrators and users with single
    sign-on, standardizes on a single set of tools and processes and enforces
    enterprise-wide security policies.
--  Simplifying compliance and reporting -- Provides a single point of
    administration for access control and security policy as well as out-of-the-
    box reports that help pass audits.
--  Delivering secure, granular user access control -- Segregates UNIX,
    Linux, VMware ESX or Apple Mac OS X systems within Active Directory with
    unique sets of users, administrators and security policies; enables users
    or groups to execute privileged commands without switching accounts or
    requiring privileged account passwords.
--  Restricting user access -- Limits commands that users or groups can
    execute, enables security managers to define and manage user roles;
    controls the time users can access sensitive data.
--  Freeing server administrators of mundane user administration tasks --
    Allows UNIX and VMware administrators to maintain current asset operating
    procedures and focus on higher value activities to the business.
    

NetIQ Identity Integration Suite is the result of a strategic relationship with Centrify Corporation to OEM its Centrify DirectControl and Centrify DirectAuthorize products.

"As organizations look to streamline costs, become more agile and adhere to growing regulatory compliance requirements, leveraging Active Directory as a unified platform for managing identities across the enterprise is a logical choice," noted Frank Cabri, vice president of Marketing and Alliances, Centrify Corporation. "Our partnership with NetIQ validates the importance of AD-centric identity management and will allow enterprises to maximize their return on Active Directory investments."

"We are pleased to partner with Centrify for this solution to help customers confidently leverage the investments they have made in managing Active Directory to securing other mission-critical platforms," commented Ron Hardy, vice president of Product Management, NetIQ. "Organizations look to NetIQ for complete AD management solutions. With the NetIQ Identity Integration Suite, they can maximize the value from those investments while addressing their biggest compliance challenges."
