Likewise enhances networks

Likewise Software's new Likewise Open Fall 08 allows network administrators to remotely access, control and manage multiple computers across 118 platforms, including Mac OS X, Linux, UNIX and more, all from one point of control on any computer. Using a Microsoft Active Directory environment, Likewise Fall 08 integrates non-windows systems by providing Active Directory Authentication services, with Kerberos, NTLM and SPNEGO security protocols supported. Its administrative console allows network managers to access and manage computers from Mac, Linux and UNIX stations and includes an Active Directory editor, a users and groups manager and an eventlog viewer.

Likewise Fall 08 works with Mac OS X 10.3 and higher, supporting both 32- and 64-bit processing and any Linux flavor with graphical desktop support. It is free, open source software available now for download.

    How does this compare with Centrify's DirectControl, LANrev, or other similar AD integration software?
