Authentication Services

Active Directory for Unix, Linux, and Mac

For organizations that have already adopted Active Directory for Windows access, authentication, and authorization, Authentication Services' patented technology provides the seamless capability to extend that infrastructure to the rest of the enterprise. Authentication Services natively integrates Unix, Linux, and Mac systems to allow them to act as full citizens within Active Directory—thus benefiting from the existing security and compliance advantages Active Directory offers.

Authentication Services also provides a framework for extending the powerful capabilities of policy-based management(through Windows Group Policy) to non-Windows systems.
