Centrify Certifies DirectControl Suite for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4

Certified Solution to Offer Active Directory and Group Policy for Linux Identities and Configurations

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Centrify Corporation today announced Red Hat Ready certification of DirectControl(TM) which integrates Red Hat(R) Enterprise Linux 4 environments into Microsoft's Active Directory. As a member of the Red Hat Ready Partner program, Centrify has added support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 to its existing product line, which already includes support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 and 3 as well as Fedora Core 3. DirectControl is an identity, access and Group Policy management solution that comprehensively extends the capabilities of Microsoft(R) Active Directory(R) for mixed Microsoft Windows(R), UNIX(R) and Linux(R) environments and Java(TM) and web-based applications.

"Our Red Hat Ready certification and our Windows Server 2003 Certification demonstrate our commitment to customers that our Windows-Linux interoperability solution meets the high standards of both Microsoft and Red Hat," said David McNeely, Director of Product Management, Centrify Corporation. "With Red Hat Ready certification, Centrify helps assure customers of the reliability of the DirectControl suite running on Red Hat servers and workstations. Enterprises can confidently leverage Active Directory and Group Policy for identity and configuration management as they deploy the latest version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux."

Active Directory Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Customers can now map multiple Linux User IDs (UIDs) to a single Active Directory account to provide users with a single sign-on experience and to reliably control a user's access to all systems and applications. DirectControl helps address top security concerns such as enforcing consistent password policies across the enterprise and eliminating the security risk of orphan accounts. An additional benefit is that DirectControl performs the centralized auditing and reporting required to show compliance with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA. By consolidating all user account management in Microsoft Active Directory, an organization is able to extend Active Directory's benefits to non-Windows platforms without increasing administrative overhead.

Microsoft Group Policy(TM) Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

DirectControl delivers significant cost savings by enabling administrators to leverage Microsoft Group Policy to manage mixed Windows, Linux/Unix and Java/J2EE environments. Any configuration file common to groups of Linux systems or web applications, can be centrally defined and automatically updated by the DirectControl agent on the target system. Time-consuming administrative tasks that would otherwise have to be implemented for individual systems such as login banners, firewall settings, start menu specifications, and application parameters can now be centrally managed and enforced across Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems from Active Directory's Group Policy services.

Price and Availability

Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 is included in DirectControl. Centrify DirectControl supports the following versions of Red Hat: Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3, 4; Red Hat Linux 7.2, 7.3, 8, 9; and Fedora Core 3. DirectControl is licensed beginning at $50 per workstation and $300 per server.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
