Centrify Corporation, the leading provider of security and compliance solutions that centrally control, secure and audit cross-platform systems and applications using Active Directory, today announced that it will publicly unveil its new Centrify CloudTools for Active Directory-based security across platforms in the cloud at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit in Washington, DC, this week in Booth Number 28.

Centrify CloudTools is an integrated collection of free tools and enhancements to existing Centrify products that lets organizations dynamically apply Active Directory-based authentication and access control to Linux systems running within cloud hosting providers, such as Amazon EC2 and the RightScale Cloud Management Platform.

Managing dynamic cloud-based systems requires automated security infrastructure to allow critical security and compliance policies to be applied consistently as every new system is initialized within a hosted environment. For newly provisioned Linux servers in the cloud, CloudTools immediately secures the root accounts, locks down the servers, and joins them to the customer’s on-premises Active Directory domain. With CloudTools, only administrators defined by the licensor of the server, and not the cloud service provider, have access to and control over the server. All access to the server is provided through Active Directory credentials, enabling server activity to be associated with a specific user. Similarly, when a server is terminated from a hosted service, it can automatically be removed from Active Directory.

“The Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit attracts an impressive audience of CISOs and security, risk management and business continuity professionals interested in addressing today’s complex infrastructure protection and compliance needs, and we are pleased to debut our new CloudTools in its first live demos for attendees there,” said David McNeely, director of product management for Centrify. “We are seeing good traction for CloudTools as a way to centrally secure cross-platform servers in the cloud with Active Directory. The solution uniquely enforces privilege-based access via Active Directory Groups, and ensures security best practices to help organizations rapidly adopt cloud computing while mitigating security risks.”

Centrify CloudTools are available for free to customers of Centrify Suite (Centrify’s family of licensed software solutions) and are also a new component of Centrify Express 2011 (Centrify’s free suite of Active Directory-based integration solutions for UNIX, Linux and Apple Mac OS X systems that offers authentication, single sign-on, remote access, file-sharing, and reporting for cross-platform systems). Used in conjunction with the Centrify Suite or Centrify Express, Centrify CloudTools enable an “enterprise-out” approach that establishes Active Directory as the center of trust between enterprise and cloud servers, whether private or hosted, to make them as secure and compliant as those in an on-premises data center.
