Quest One Privileged Access Suite for Unix solves the inherent security and administration issues of Unix-based systems (including Linux and Mac) while making satisfying compliance requirements a breeze. It unifies and consolidates identities, assigns individual accountability and enables centralized reporting for user and administrator access to Unix. The Privileged Access Suite for Unix is a one-stop shop for Unix security that combines an Active Directory bridge and root delegation solutions under a unified console that grants organizations centralized visibility and streamlined administration of identities and access rights across their entire Unix environment.
Achieve unified access control, authentication, authorization and identity administration for Unix, Linux, and Mac systems by extending them into Active Directory (AD) and taking advantage of AD’s inherent benefits. Patented technology allows non-Windows resources to become part of the AD trusted realm, and extends AD’s security, compliance and Kerberos-based authentication capabilities to Unix, Linux, and Mac. (See Authentication Services for more information about the Active Directory Bridge product.)
