Allows users to log onto Unix or Linux 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.
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 off boarding.
Enables consistent configuration enterprise-wide by extending native Group Policy management tools to include specific group policy settings for Unix and Linux. Supports compliance with SOX, PCI, HIPAA, and other regulations across all systems by replacing NIS with an Active Directory infrastructure.
Allows for a remote system running the BeyondTrust AD Bridge agent along with a new client smartcard hook to establish a secure tunnel between the user’s workstation and the target server. The user’s smart card reader can then be connected to the target host via this secure tunnel so that the remote system acts as though the smart card reader has been physically connected directly to the machine itself.
Supports a wide range of Unix and Linux 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.
Deployments, upgrades and policies for BeyondTrust AD Bridge and BeyondTrust Server Privilege Management for Unix & Linux are unified in the BeyondTrust Servers Management Console, an HTML5-based web interface that simplifies management of your Unix and Linux solutions.
