Centrify Extends Microsoft Active Directory
DirectControl Provides Full ADFS Web SSO Agent

Centrify Corporation has announced at Microsoft Tech Ed Europe that it will deliver Web Single Sign-on (SSO) Agents running on non-Microsoft web platforms in support of Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS).

Available as part of the forthcoming Windows Server 2003 R2 release, Microsoft ADFS is Microsoft's federated identity management solution that enables distributed identification, authentication, and authorization across organizational and platform boundaries.

The Company is delivering the first solution that extends ADFS Web SSO Agent support to web-based applications running on non-Microsoft web platforms (Microsoft ADFS supports applications running on the Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) platform).

Thus, using the Centrify solution, web-based applications hosted on Apache and popular J2EE application servers including IBM WebSphere, BEA WebLogic, JBoss, and Tomcat will support Microsoft ADFS without having to deploy any additional federated identity software.

As Michael Stephenson, Director of Windows Server Product Management of Microsoft Corporation says, "Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services brings distributed users, systems and applications together in a secure, trusted relationship. Microsoft is pleased to partner with Centrify to help customers extend the use of Active Directory to their heterogeneous systems and applications, and now with Centrify's support for Microsoft ADFS this interoperability has been extended to Web Single Sign-on federated identity management scenarios."
