Enter Centrify, a tool that puts all your Linux, Mac and Unix platforms under Active Directory services. It solves your SOX compliance, security, and auditing requirements, letting you manage and verify all your platforms with minimal effort.
For our customers who operate a Xinet production environment, it brings both the server and the desktops into the AD realm.
We’re aware of two approaches to implementing Centrify in Xinet domains.
One reduces your initial license cost, but adds some complexity, reduces functionality and is unsupported by Centrify. We don't do this. It does save some upfront costs, and reduces the annual maintenance.
Obviously, we think that approach is deeply flawed.
We’ve built a robust practice around implementing Centrify as a stable, flexible and fully supported tool. Centrify sets a very high standard. Would that all software worked so well.
