Centrify Offers Worldwide Technical Support for Open Source Interoperability Solutions

Organizations To Receive Consistent And Knowledgeable Support For Open Source Applications

Centrify, provider of solutions that securely integrate non-Microsoft systems and applications with Microsoft Active Directory, announced its Support for Open Source Software solution. This service solution is a companion to the DirectControl-enabled versions of OpenSSH, Kerberos Utilities, PuTTY, and Samba that Centrify provides free to all of its customers.

Centrify's unique Support for Open Source Software solution assures organizations that they will receive consistent and knowledgeable support not only for the DirectControl suite itself but also for the ecosystem of Open Source applications that they rely on for additional enterprise services and day-to-day productivity.

Centrify DirectControl enables UNIX, Linux and Mac servers and workstations to participate in an Active Directory domain by effectively turning the host system into an Active Directory client. This enables an organization to secure and manage that system using the same authentication, access control, and Group Policy services currently deployed for its Windows systems.

 Centrify recognizes that customers also employ a variety of Open Source software for day-to-day operations (such as remote access through OpenSSH, Kerberos Utilities, and PuTTY) and to deliver enterprise services (such as file sharing through Samba). Centrify's packaged, DirectControl- enabled versions of these Open Source tools include recompiled versions of the Open Source software, documentation, customized installation and now, the option of technical support.

"Providing DirectControl-enabled versions of Open Source software, along with our new technical support for Open Source software option, distinguishes Centrify as a solution provider, not just a technology provider," said David McNeely, Director of Product Management for Centrify. "Integrating non-Windows systems with Active Directory is the first step in the process toward creating a secure, connected infrastructure for a heterogeneous environment. Centrify is helping its customers accelerate that process through our unique Support for Open Source Software program, which will result in enhanced security and better manageability for that environment."

Centrify offers the same options for Support for Open Source Software as it does for its product support. These include worldwide phone and email support, access to an exclusive web portal, response time commitments and product and information downloads.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
