Centralized Security Policy Administration
Cross-platform security control from one administration point
Over the years, organizations have taken different approaches to defining and managing operating system security configuration for their UNIX and Linux implementations. For example, a simple item like enforcing password length and complexity is implemented using five separate methods on today’s enterprise Open System platforms.
Powertech Identity & Access Manager (BoKS) takes care of the underlying technical specifics of how security policy changes are achieved. This can be done via each supported platform or by live updates from its distributed security database.
Powertech Identity & Access Manager (BoKS) makes it easy with two main methods of centralized security administration for all technical platforms.
You can select the right option for your business depending on the personal preferences of your staff and their experience with the command line.
