Overview:

Unix, Linux and Mac are traditionally managed as standalone systems — each like an island with its own set of users, groups, access control and configuration files. PowerBroker Identity Services allows non-Windows systems to utilize the best features of Active Directory’s centralized user and policy management while providing end users with platform choice. The simplicity of managing Windows infrastructure is now available on Unix, Linux and Mac.

Active Directory and Group Policy for Unix, Linux and Mac

PowerBroker Identity Services centralizes authentication for Unix, Linux and Mac environments by extending Active Directory’s Kerberos authentication and single sign-on capabilities to these platforms. By extending Group Policy to non-Windows platforms, PowerBroker provides centralized configuration management, reducing the risk and complexity of managing a heterogeneous environment.

  • Allow users to leverage their AD credentials to access Unix, Linux or Mac systems
  • Attain consistent configuration by extending native group policy management tools to include settings for Unix, Linux and Mac
  • Audit several events in real time; access results through the PowerBroker console or forward to third-party solutions
  • Transition users from desktops to remote machines or between systems, without requiring them to re-enter credentials
  • Consolidate directories to simplify management of complex environments

Strong Authentication

PowerBroker Identity Services provides a simple way to maintain Active Directory as a single authentication platform across your enterprise. For increased security, you can leverage multi-factor authentication with Smartcards or one-time passwords (OTP) on Unix, Linux and Mac.

Compliance

PowerBroker Identity Services provides several audited events to fulfill the needs of both security and compliance teams. Security teams have full access to real-time audit events from the operation console, or they can configure desired events to be forwarded to a specific operations console.

Platform Support

PowerBroker Identity Services supports a wide range of Unix, Linux and Mac platforms including CentOS, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, HP-UX, IBM AIX, Oracle Enterprise Linux, Suse, RedHat, Solaris, Ubuntu and others.

Platform Support

Highlights:


Consolidate Credentials, Increase Efficiency


Consolidate Credentials, Increase Efficiency

Allows users to log onto Unix, Linux, or Mac systems using their Active Directory (AD) usernames and passwords, without requiring additional infrastructure or password synchronization. Enables IT to leverage AD group membership to centrally control server and workstation access. Provides a single password policy set in AD to all joined systems, including Kerberos SSO for SAP, Siebel, and other key enterprise applications.

Simplify Administration via Directory Consolidation


Simplify Administration via Directory Consolidation

Facilitates migration from multiple authentication mechanisms, identities, and directories to a single Active Directory-based infrastructure for all systems and users. This centralizes control and speeds user onboarding and offboarding.

Extend Group Policy to Achieve Compliance


Extend Group Policy to Achieve Compliance

Enables consistent configuration enterprise-wide by extending native Group Policy management tools to include specific group policy settings for Unix, Linux and Mac. Supports compliance with SOX, PCI, HIPAA, and other regulations across all systems by replacing NIS with an Active Directory infrastructure.

Comprehensive Platform Support


Comprehensive Platform Support

Supports a wide range of Unix, Linux and Mac platforms including CentOS, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, HP-UX, IBM AIX, Oracle Enterprise Linux, Suse, RedHat, Solaris, Ubuntu and others, running on VMs to connect them with Active Directory.

Features and Benefits:

Efficient

  • Empower administrators: Provide a single familiar tool set to manage both Windows and Unix systems. Perform account maintenance and password updates through a single directory administration tool (Active Directory Users and Computers).
  • Configuration: Enables one-to-many management of Unix, Linux, and Mac OS X configuration settings.
  • Reduce costs: Leverage existing Active Directory deployments to centrally manage heterogeneous workstations and users.
  • Manage Active Directory from Linux or Mac OS X: Provides a pluggable framework with an interface similar to Microsoft’s Management Console on Linux or Mac OS X.
  • User management: Allow users to use their Active Directory credentials (Username and Password) to gain access to Unix, Linux and Mac, consolidating various password files, NIS and LDAP repositories into Active Directory and removing the need to manage user accounts separately on Mac workstations and server platforms.
  • Extend Mac OS X: Full support for Apple’s Workgroup Manager application, allowing for seamless management and control of Mac system settings.
  • Open Source Version Available: Try PowerBroker Identity Services Open for free. With access to the product source code, you can tailor your Active Directory bridging project to your specific needs.

Compliant

  • Extend Active Directory: PowerBroker Identity Services is the only solution that does not have to modify your Active Directory schema to add Linux, Unix, & Mac OS X systems to your network.
  • Granular Reporting: Effortlessly manage and view access privileges for users and groups through customizable reports. Provide audit details to audit and compliance teams via enterprise-spanning access and authorization reports.
  • Extend Group Policy: Extend the capabilities of native group policy management tools to include specific group policy settings for Unix, Linux and Mac – achieving a consistent configuration across the enterprise.

Secure

  • SSO: Get single sign-on for any enterprise application that supports Kerberos or LDAP, including Samba, Apache, SSH, Websphere, JBoss, Tomcat, Oracle, and MySQL.
  • File sharing: Support for Remote Network file share access for Mac and Linux systems.
  • Access control: Centrally control access to non-Windows systems by defining which users are permitted to log onto which systems via Active Directory.

How It Works:

Active Directory

PowerBroker Identity Services extends existing Active Directory infrastructure to nonWindows platforms. The solution increases security and enables you to meet regulatory compliance mandates by enabling users of non-Windows platforms to employ a single username and password. In addition to centralizing authentication, PowerBroker Identity Services enables you to leverage Active Directory group membership to easily provide effective access control for users of Unix, Linux and Mac systems.

Group Policy

Group Policy enables centralized configuration management of Microsoft Windows operating systems and supported applications. PowerBroker Identity Services extends Group Policy benefits to Unix, Linux and Mac. The solution’s Active Directory authentication capability enables you to implement a single account / single password policy for Windows, Unix, Linux and Mac. With the flexibility of Group Policy, you can define logon rights, message of the day, distribute files and directories, mount volumes, and hundreds of other settings. The solution also extends Microsoft Group policy with platform specific connectors, allowing you to achieve a consistent configuration across non-Windows platforms in Active Directory.

PowerBroker Identity Services extends Active Directory and Group Policy to non-Windows platforms enterprise-wide.
