PC networks cater to Macs

Centrify is expanding its Microsoft Active Directory-based authentication and access control to more than 100 versions of UNIX and Linux, as well as Mac OS X. The latest release of Centrify DirectControl allows corporate network administrators to easily manage Mac OS X computers right alongside Windows systems in the same way without extra effort, and adds more than 25 new supported versions of UNIX and Linux. The update includes enhanced Group Policy-based Mac OS X desktop lockdown capabilities, and delivers the industry's first solution to leverage Group Policy to enable bulk configuration of distributed OpenSSH deployments, according to Centrify. Centrify DirectControl aims to turn a non-Microsoft server, workstation or device into an Active Directory client to secure that system using the same authentication, access control and Group Policy services available to Windows systems.
