BeyondTrust Active Directory Bridge

Make UNIX, LINUX, and Mac Systems First-Class Citizens In Windows Environments

Partners / Technology Partners / BeyondTrust / Active Directory Bridge >

Improved Efficiency
Provide a single familiar toolset to manage both Windows and Unix/Linux systems.

Easier Compliance
Provide audit details to audit and compliance teams and centrally manage group policies.

Enhanced Security
Expand single sign-on (SSO) and file sharing, and control access to non-Windows systems.

BeyondTrust Active Directory Bridge centralizes authentication and configuration management for Unix, Linux, and Mac environments by extending Active Directory’s Kerberos authentication and single sign-on and Group Policy capabilities to these platforms.

Features and Capabilities

  • Active Directory Authentication: Enable users to use their Active Directory credentials (username and password) to gain access to Unix, Linux, and Mac.
  • 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.
  • Auditing and Reporting: Leverage a centralized and secure reporting module with hundreds of built-in regulatory-specific reports.
  • Access Control: Centrally control access to non-Windows systems by defining which users are permitted to log on to which systems via Active Directory.
  • Single Sign-On: Seamlessly transition users from desktop to remote machines, or between systems, without the need to constantly re-enter credentials. By leveraging Kerberos, Active Directory’s authentication protocol, single sign-on is easy, regardless of platform.
  • Remote Smart Card Authentication: Perform smart card authentication without having to be physically next to the server to insert the smart card.
