This white paper examines the compelling business and technical case for centralizing administration in Microsoft's Active Directory, describes how Centrify's integrated architecture enables you to extend Active Directory to your non-Microsoft platforms, and describes the Centrify Suite's unique benefits.
This white paper examines the compelling business and technical case for centralizing administration in Microsoft's Active Directory, using Centrify's DirectControl to extend Active Directory authentication and access control to your UNIX, Linux and Mac OS systems and applications, and using Centrify's DirectAudit to log user activity to provide you a clear picture of end user actions on all UNIX and Linux systems.
This white paper examines the challenges of migrating NIS deployments to a central repository, and explains in detail how a combination of Microsoft Active Directory and Centrify DirectControl can deliver a cost-effective solution that strengthens security while improving IT efficiency.
Managing the security and uptime of a Windows network requires you to master your Active Directory, the brain and heart of the network, with maximum efficiency. Active Administrator makes it simpler and faster than native Windows tools to exceed compliance regulations, tighten security, increase productivity, and improve business continuity.
Active Administrator is an extensive Active Directory management solution that addresses the auditing, security, recovery and health of Active Directory from one integrated console. This centralizes the management of the most important aspects of Active Directory and Group Policy so that administrators save time and have the most control over their environment.
Finding what you need in Active Directory’s native audit log can be an awful manual-intensive nightmare. There is a better, automated way to help you take control of AD auditing. Read this paper to learn seven essential audit needs, and how Active Administrator meets them.
While the pre-packaged set of permissions in Active Directory seems to make delegation easy, actually maintaining, customizing, and auditing delegation can be a real nightmare. But there is a better way. Read how the right tools can help you to automate and take control of your AD delegation.
Remember that the idea behind a help desk is to get users back online as quickly as possible when problems occur. Tracking problems and requests in tickets is a fine start, but a good help desk management solution can do much, much more.
When it comes to end-user service, however, cutting corners can really prevent us from getting the job done. This whitepaper will explain why it's so important to have basic processes to help run a successful business.

This document describes how Likewise and Microsoft Active Directory can foster compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, a set of requirements for businesses that process payment card information. Developed by Visa, American Express, Discover Financial Services, and other members of the PCI Security Standards Council, the standard sets forth policies, procedures, and practices to protect customer account data. The standard includes specific requirements for strictly controlling access to customer data, authenticating business users, monitoring access, maintaining a secure network, and auditing system resources. Likewise integrates Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X workstations and servers into Active Directory, providing the basis to assign each user a unique ID for authentication, authorization, monitoring, and tracking. Likewise also provides group policies for non-Windows computers so that their security settings and other configurations can be centrally managed in the same way as Windows computers.
