Centrify Corp. has announced the general availability of Centrify Suite 2012, the latest release of its security and compliance solution in use at 3,500 organizations.

The new features in Centrify Suite 2012 empower enterprises to centralize identities to cross-platform systems and establish secure, privileged user access across Mac, UNIX and Linux environments, according to the folks at Centrify. An integrated solution, Centrify Suite 2012 — consisting of DirectControl 5.0, DirectAuthorize 2.0, DirectManage 5.0, DirectAudit 2.0 and DirectSecure 1.2 — enables secure authentication, single sign-on, privileged access management and user session auditing.

Other unique capabilities in Centrify Suite 2012 such as Hierarchical Zones and Computer Roles are designed to make it a scalable solution for consolidating complex UNIX and Linux identity environments into Active Directory, and logically managing relationships between users, groups and computer roles in a cross-platform system environment. Other capabilities include extending DirectAudit’s historic focus of delivering user session auditing of UNIX and Linux systems to also include complete full fidelity capture of Windows sessions.
