Centrify Ships Express 2012; The Leading Free Solution Used by Organizations for Integrating UNIX, Linux and Mac with Active Directory
Centrify Corporation, the leading provider of security and compliance solutions that centrally control, secure and audit access to cross-platform systems and applications using Active Directory, today announced the general availability of Centrify Express 2012, the latest release of its free solution that has been acquired by more than 100,000 IT professionals and users in the past twelve months alone. Centrify Express 2012 is a comprehensive suite of five, free Active Directory-based integration solutions that deliver authentication, single sign-on, remote access, file-sharing, and reporting capabilities for cross-platform systems deployed on-premise or in the cloud. The new features in Express 2012 empower users to easily centralize identities to cross-platform systems and enable single sign on for the broadest set of platforms and applications.
Express 2012 includes Centrify Insight™ 1.1, a unique application powered by Splunk delivering out-of-the-box dashboards, reports and analysis for UNIX and Linux users' identity, authentication and authorization data. Centrify Insight 1.1 specifically adds the ability to monitor and report on *NIX user login activity for Active Directory and local users, successful/failed login attempts, and login methods including SSH, telnet and su (switched user). This system access intelligence ensures that only authorized personnel are accessing critical business systems on-premises and in cloud environments. The Insight application works with either of Splunk's free or enterprise versions and is available for download via Splunkbase.
"We are very pleased with the tremendous response and adoption we have seen of Centrify Express since it launched 12 months ago," said Corey Williams, Director of Product Management for Centrify. "With the most free Active Directory integration and UNIX/Linux management tools, and the industry's best reviewed and most broadly adopted free Active Directory integration products, Centrify Express customers are now more compliant, productive and secure than ever. The next 12 months will bring even more free capabilities and upgrade options that will delight customers."
