Centrify Secures Access, Privileges On SUSE Linux Enterprise Servers

Identity and access management solution earns certification from both IBM and Novell

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Centrify Corporation, the leading provider of Microsoft Active Directory-based, identity and access management and auditing solutions for non-Microsoft platforms, today announced the availability of Centrify Suite 2008 for Linux on IBM System z. The first Linux supported as a guest OS is SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for System z. With Centrify Suite, enterprises can easily secure the hundreds to thousands of Linux servers that a single mainframe can host by leveraging their existing Active Directory infrastructure and user accounts. The Centrify Suite also allows IT administrators to integrate all other Linux, UNIX and Mac systems in an enterprise within Active Directory to provide centralized identity management, access control, privilege management and auditing of all non-Windows platforms.

Centrify Suite has successfully passed the IBM validation program, earning the IBM brand "Ready for Systems with Linux" for System z servers. This means the Centrify Suite is a qualified offering that has met compatibility and integration specifications established by IBM. The Centrify offering is also certified for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for System z, the most popular guest operating system for Linux on System z.

"Novell is pleased that Centrify Suite is now certified on SUSE(R) Linux Enterprise Server for System z," said Kevin M. Pereau, Director, ISV Ecosystems at Novell. "In today's economy, customers are looking for freedom of choice and lower total cost of ownership and by certifying Centrify Suite on SUSE(R) Linux Enterprise Server for System z, Centrify is offering its customers both."

"Linux on IBM System z servers provides one of the most cost-effective, powerful, resilient platforms for running massive Linux workloads," says Corey Williams, Director of Product Management for Centrify. "Combined with Centrify Suite 2008, you can centrally control access and manage users on Linux on IBM System z and those on your other UNIX and Linux systems to provide a secure and compliant operating environment for your most critical business servers."
