Centrify Delivers Secure Access Controls for Red Hat Storage 
Centrify Adds Enhanced Support for Red Hat Storage to Its Flagship
DirectControl Solution to Deliver Active Directory-Based Secure
Access Control to Data Stored on Red Hat Storage 
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/13 --   Red Hat Summit 2013
Booth 1012 -- Centrify Corporation, a leader in Unified Identity
Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced from
Red Hat Summit 2013 (www.redhat.com/summit), the industry's premier
open source technology event, that Centrify DirectControl has added
enhanced support for Red Hat Storage, delivering Active
Directory-based authentication and single sign-on for users accessing
file shares on Red Hat Storage. Enterprises can now benefit from
additional secure access to data stored on Red Hat Storage using
native Windows protocols and leveraging Active Directory. The
solution will be unveiled this week at Red Hat Summit 2013 at
Centrify's Booth No. 1012. 
Centrify DirectControl helps centralize identity management for Red
Hat Storage in Active Directory to speed the deployment of Red Hat
Storage through additional simplicity and efficiency. Centrify
provides even more simplicity when customers scale their Red Hat
Storage solution to integrate with Active Directory and provides an
easy path to control access, auditing, and server isolation policy. 
"IT managers are faced with the challenge of efficiently storing and
managing access to file shares on Windows SMB protocols," said Scott
Clinton, senior director, product management and marketing, Storage,
Red Hat. "Red Hat is pleased to work with Centrify to address this
challenge by leveraging the open scale-out architecture of Red Hat
Storage and the centralized identity management capabilities of
Centrify DirectControl." 
"We have worked closely with Red Hat over the years to help drive
innovation in Red Hat solutions, and Centrify's enhanced support for
Red Hat Storage is the latest effort," said Shreyas Sadalgi, Centrify
Head of Business Development. "With Centrify, user identities are
mapped and centralized in Active Directory, creating a more secure
environment for storing and accessing data, and access controls that
are more easily managed by IT." 
Centrify DirectControl, a component of the Centrify Suite 2013
unified identity solution, is differentiated in the industry for its
unique ability to enable Red Hat Linux systems, as well as more than
400 other versions of Linux, UNIX and Mac OS systems, to join an
Active Directory domain. Centrify DirectControl's enhanced support
for Red Hat Storage centrally secures and manages Red Hat Storage
servers using the same authentication, access control and Group
Policy services leveraged for Windows systems. Using Centrify,
enterprises reduce operational and helpdesk costs by centralizing
account management within Active Directory, enabling standardization
on a single set of tools and processes. Centrally managing access
rights and privileges strengthens security and enforces consistent
security policies across heterogeneous systems. Enterprises also
simplify compliance reporting for PCI, SOX, FISMA and other
regulations by linking all access rights and privileges to a single,
definitive Active Directory identity.

 Centrify DirectControl, available as part
of the Centrify Suite 2013, is available today from Centrify and
authorized partners worldwide. The Centrify Suite is licensed on a
