Centrify Delivers DirectControl Suite for Debian

Anonymous Reader writes "Centrify Corporation today announced that it has added Debian GNU/Linux to its list of supported Linux and Unix platforms for its DirectControl(TM) suite. DirectControl is an identity, access and Group Policy management solution that comprehensively extends the capabilities of Microsoft® Active Directory® for mixed Microsoft Windows®, UNIX® and Linux® environments and Java(TM) and web-based applications.

"By adding support for the free software Debian, we are able to extend the benefits of Active Directory integration to one of the more popular non-commercial Linux environments," said David McNeely, Director of Product Management, Centrify. "Centrify's goal is to deliver the broadest range of Active Directory support for UNIX/Linux systems and applications."

Debian users are strong champions of free software, yet they frequently find their systems used in environments that include Windows and Microsoft Active Directory. By supporting Debian and other Linux systems, Centrify increases their acceptance into commercial environments seeking single sign-on and centralized administration.
