Integrating Centrify DirectControl With Identity Management Systems
While evaluating enterprise software solutions, IT organizations that have invested in Identity Management Systems must carefully examine the ease with which the new software can be integrated. Centrify DirectControl is designed to work in co-ordination with an organization's existing Identity Management Systems. It readily integrates with both Agent-based and Agentless architectures. Using DirectControl reduces the provisioning complexity associated with databases and web servers. In addition to this, Centrify's patent-pending Zone technology simplifies management of UNIX, Linux and Mac computers and at the same time strengthens access controls through the centralized management. Centrify DirectControl can be successfully incorporated with the commercial Identity Management Systems which are tailored in standard sizes and available from merchandise in stock. It demonstrates how to handle common Identity Management events such as hiring a new employee, managing an employee's membership in Active Directory groups, marriage and divorce, promoting or demoting an employee, detecting and preventing unauthorized access attempts, and termination. DirectControl can simplify provisioning tasks and strengthen security when used in an environment that includes LDAP-based systems, databases, and portal servers. These initial high-level tasks must be performed or verified in order to integrate Identity Management Systems with Centrify DirectControl. Once this solution is deployed, the administrative tasks will primarily involve adding new services or servers as required and routine maintenance on existing services and servers.
