Centrify Suite 2013 builds on the core enhancements Centrify introduced in Suite 2012 by extending DirectAuthorize to Windows, providing tighter integration between DirectAudit and DirectAuthorize, making migration from legacy “sudo” environments to DirectAuthorize fast and simple as well as adding many newly supported operating systems. All this makes Centrify Suite 2013 the industry’s easiest and most scalable solution for unified identity and privilege management and detailed user auditing across UNIX, Linux and now Windows systems.
