Digital certificates have become vital to MDM/EMM, WiFi and VPN access for mobile-device-to-enterprise authentication. But most struggle to identify who has access, audit that access, and terminate access if needed. IT teams need a central certificate security platform that delivers issuance and distribution, visibility, and policy enforcement, as well as the control needed to terminate access.
For many enterprises, the solution is a centralized single sign-on (SSO) infrastructure that leverages the enterprise directory with federation, multifactor authentication and centralized access control to give users one URL and login to access all their enterprise applications and services--without having to type in another URL or enter credentials a second time. At the same time, it provides IT with a single identity, access control and management infrastructure, closing the inevitable security and management gaps inherent in juggling multiple gateway solutions. Such a solution would offer the best of all worlds, combining enhanced user productivity with IT efficiency, cost effectiveness, security and compliance.
This white paper examines the compelling business and technical case for centralizing administration in Microsoft's Active Directory, using Centrify's DirectControl to extend Active Directory authentication and access control to your UNIX, Linux and Mac OS systems and applications, and using Centrify's DirectAudit to log user activity to provide you a clear picture of end user actions on all UNIX and Linux systems.
