Centrify understands the pressure on IT organizations to optimize costs while enforcing controls and demonstrating compliance. IT managers know that fractured identity silos across their data center systems, cloud and mobile environments is a major barrier to efficient operations and improved security. With Centrify's unified identity architecture, IT operations and security staff can eliminate fractured identity and policy silos by consolidating UNIX and Linux identities and privileges into Active Directory. The same Active Directory-centric approach makes centralized management of Macs and mobile devices easy while giving users the one login they want. Centrify goes well beyond "Active Directory Bridging" products by providing an integrated solution for identity consolidation, authentication, single sign-on, Group Policy enforcement on non-Windows systems, and mobile device management.
