Simplify access management with Active Directory for Linux/Unix

Overcome cybersecurity challenges and get control with Active Directory for Linux and Unix systems. Safeguard Privileged Security Suite for Unix is a one-stop shop for Unix/Linux access management and security. This powerful suite combines an Active Directory bridge with the enhanced auditing and reporting of Sudo activities. It consolidates and unifies Unix, Linux and macOS identities. Plus, it assigns, records and audits all Sudo keystroke activity, as well as centralizes access reporting of the Unix root account. You get complete visibility, streamlined identity administration and access-rights management for Unix/Linux environments.

Key Benefits

Eliminate Complexity

Leverage Active Directory for Linux and Unix systems; plus, integrate macOS with Active Directory for complete authentication coverage

Improve Efficiency

Improve efficiency and policy consistency with centralized management of sudo across all your Unix/Linux servers

Simplify Compliance

Quickly see the information you need with centralized reporting on sudo policy, activities and history

Enhance Security

Increase security with Kerberos authentication, single sign-on and keystroke logging of all sudo activity


Active Directory for Unix, Linux and Mac

Extend the authentication, authorization and administration infrastructure of Active Directory to the rest of your enterprise. This enables Unix, macOS and Linux systems to operate as AD full citizens.

Integrate macOS with Active Directory

Consolidate control to a single tool by including those loyal Mac users in your identity-security strategy.

Extend Sudo

Leverage plug-ins that extend your current sudo environment instead of replacing it. Users access the root account the same way they did before there’s no need for additional training minimizing calls to the help desk.

Audit, alerting and change tracking

Receive alerts and show in-depth change history of Unix systems managed by Active Directory.

Central sudo policy

Use a central service to enforce policy across all your Unix/Linux servers. This eliminates the need for administrators to deploy sudoers on every system, reducing administrative effort and improving security.

Keystroke logging

All sudo keystrokes are logged. The keystroke log report is a comprehensive view of the activities and commands executed across all systems. You can filter the log report to quickly find the data you need.

Group Policy for Unix, Linux and Mac

When you extend Active Directory for Linux, Unix and macOS systems, you get policy-based management far beyond your Windows environment.

Centralized reporting

Easily track who, what and when changes were made to sudoers, including versioning. Reports analyze the sudo configuration file, user accounts and group memberships. Plus, you can track who ran specific sudo commands across all systems and whether the commands were accepted or rejected.

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.

Sudo Offline Policy Cache

Provides your organization with service continuity in the event of a network or server outage.

Script compatibility

Safeguard for Sudo ensures compatibility of your script files that contain embedded sudo commands across your Unix environment/infrastructure. With this, you can avoid run failures, and the expense and effort to test and fix scripts.

University of East Anglia: UK university cuts IT burden with Unix/Linux single sign-on

The benefits we’ve realised mean that Authentication Services has already paid for itself. Over time, the ROI will continue to rise as Authentication Services continues to add value.
