Hub City Media Develops Sun Identity Manager Connector for Centrify to Simplify UNIX Account Administration
EDISON, N.J., Sept. 16 -- Hub City Media, Inc. today released a new Sun Identity Manager Connector for Centrify. This exclusive product enables end-to-end UNIX account administration and auditing by integrating Sun Identity Manager with the Centrify Suite: DirectControl, DirectAuthorize, and DirectAudit.
"We recognized early on that together, Centrify Suite and Sun Identity Manager can provide customers the full set of capabilities required to manage user accounts across multiple UNIX systems and heterogeneous system environments," said HCM CTO and Founder Steve Giovannetti. "But there was a component missing, and now we've created it - a resource adapter that uses Centrify's APIs to manage entries in Active Directory."
Hub City Media's engineering team created the adapter to make managing Centrify's AD entries a simple configurable task. The adapter can create new accounts, add users to custom Centrify Zones for host access control, and provide complete password management features such as password change and reset.
The innovative adapter is delivered as a standard Java JAR file along with custom Xpress form definition files that can be installed into Sun Identity Manager. Once installed, the adapter can be configured to point to the Active Directory instance where user accounts and Centrify-specific entries are contained and managed.
With Hub City Media's unique Centrify Adapter, Sun's Identity Management system and the Centrify Suite can now work together to provide an end-to-end solution for account, access, and password management in complex system environments.
