One Identity Safeguard Authentication Services

Simplify UNIX/Linux Security and Administration

One Identity Safeguard Authentication Services Overview 04:48
Integrate UNIX, Linux and Mac OS X in Active Directory with One Identity Safeguard Authentication Services by Quest. This solution creates an Active Directory (AD) Bridge enabling users to log on to non-Windows systems using their AD credentials. With centralized authentication, cross-platform access control and single sign-on, your organization can extend the compliance and security capabilities of Active Directory across your enterprise and brings in a new level of operational efficiencies and compliance.

Key benefits

Eliminate Complexity
Single source for Windows, UNIX and Linux authentication
Simplify Compliance
Centralized management and reporting to reduce audit stress and ease compliance
Enhance Security
Increased security with Kerberos authentication and single sign on

Features

Active Directory for UNIX, Linux and Mac

Extend the authentication, authorization and administration infrastructure of Active Directory to the rest of your enterprise. This authentication tool enables UNIX, Mac OS X and Linux systems to operate as full citizens within Active Directory.

Audit, alerting and change tracking

Authentication Services enables you to alert on, audit, and show in-depth change history of UNIX-centric information being managed by Active Directory.

Group Policy for UNIX, Linux and Mac

Extend policy-based management (through Windows Group Policy) to non-Windows systems, including Group Policy for Mac OS X using the product’s patented framework.

Single sign-on (SSO)

Implement “Kerberized” and LDAP SSO to UNIX, Linux and Mac OS X systems in the same way they’re used in Windows. You also get out-of-the-box single sign-on for a variety of applications, including Siebel, SAP and DB2.

Simplified identity and access management

Maximize the value of your investment in Active Directory and AD-optimized identity administration tools while dramatically simplifying your existing security framework, meta-directory or synchronization solution.

NIS migration and directory consolidation

Streamline the process of joining UNIX/Mac OS X/Linux systems and users to your Active Directory domain. Simplify migration from multiple authentication mechanisms (including NIS), directories and identities to a single Active Directory-based infrastructure for all of your users and systems.

Deployment flexibility

Options range from a non-impact, "schema-less" deployment to a fully rationalized environment, enabling you to deploy Authentication Services in whichever way best suits your objectives, environment, timelines and challenges.

Two-factor authentication support

Enhance security by requiring two-factor authentication for your UNIX/Linux users and administrators. In addition, Authentication Services extends Windows-based smart cards to UNIX and Linux and supports third-party OTP solutions.

Specifications

Authentication Services includes the following components:

  • Unix Agent
  • Windows Management Tools
  • Management Console for Unix
