DirectControl for Mac adds Snow Leopard support

Centrify Corporation has announced its Centrify DirectControl for the Mac now supports the latest Snow Leopard operating system, including both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS. Centrify DirectControl is designed to allow IT professionals to integrate Macs into Active Directory networks, while delivering similar behavior and accessibility for both Macs and PCs. The Snow Leopard support brings all the security and configuration controls from the previous Mac OS X versions, such as hundreds of "group policies" and smart-card login features.

One of the main benefits of this update is the Snow Leopard's support for the Microsoft Exchange e-mail system across iCal, Mail and Address Book applications, which is just another step for simpler integration of Macs. The company has also included added support to File Vault for Active Directory users, allowing people with network-based home directories to now create a portable home directory within a File Vault.

DirectControl requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, and is priced at $60 per-workstation or $350 per-server.
