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.

There is a remarkable transformation in how people access systems and information. Mobile devices are rapidly overtaking computers as the primary information consumption means. In a recent report, The Economist has projected a growth in the number of mobile devices to reach 10 billion by 2020 and the shipment of mobile devices to be almost two times that of laptops and PCs as early as 2013.
Mobility services are frequently being positioned as part of broader application transformation offerings, enabling enterprises to support the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) approach, with the development of enterprise app stores and the ability to leverage personal devices for business functions.
This white paper describes software and services that accelerate and simplify the creation of internally developed or “in-house” enterprise mobile applications. It also describes how to deploy and manage these mobile apps on both company-provided and “bring-your-own” smartphones and tablet computers. Solving the complete mobile app lifecycle means transforming enterprise apps for multiscreen devices; facilitating design, testing, security, performance, management, and compliance to reach new customers and employee expectations.
