SCO Group has unveiled a secure user identity management server that centralises Unix and Windows user identity management within Microsoft Active Directory.
The product, which succeeds SCO Authentication 2.1 for Microsoft Active Directory, has been dubbed Vintela Authentication from SCO Release 2.2.
It is compatible with Microsoft Windows Services for Unix and enhanced support for Active Directory.
SCO claimed the system could reduce IT administration costs because IT managers only need to manage one identity and users only need to remember one password to access their Unix and Windows systems.
Other features include enhanced domain support, allowing it to integrate with Global Catalogue and automatically detect multiple domains and sites on Active Directory.
It also boasts increased platform support, including support for Windows Server 2000 and Windows Server 2003, as well as providing expanded support for nine additional platforms, including SCO OpenServer and UnixWare, HP-UX for Risc, IA-64 and 64-bit.
"IT managers struggle to maintain solid network security in mixed Unix and Windows environments," said Jeff Hunsaker, SCO senior vice president, in a statement.
"Vintela Authentication from SCO eliminates these problems, delivering heightened network security through a single password for each user."
Vintela Authentication Release 2.2 is available immediately, with product pricing based on the number of users, systems and configurations.
