Likewise Accepted into Intel Certified Solutions Program

Helps Microsoft, Mac, Linux and Unix work together

Likewise Software has successfully completed the process for the Intel Certified Solutions Program. Likewise software helps Microsoft, Mac, Linux and Unix systems work together in mixed networks by administering authentication and access policies for all users from a centralized location.

Likewise becomes part of the Intel Software Partner Program to help grow its business and expand its sales reach. Now, Likewise software is available to small- and medium-size business (SMB) buyers globally through the Intel Business Exchange online storefront.

The company's flagship enterprise software, Likewise Enterprise 5.0, facilitates integration of Linux, Unix and Mac systems with Microsoft Active Directory, adding group policy and reporting capabilities to the core authentication function. Version 5.0 includes a number of compliance features for regulatory requirements and standards such as PCI and Sarbanes Oxley, as well as flexibility for identity mapping, and support for Active Directory-based NIS (Network Information System) maps.

Likewise Enterprise allows organizations to provide users with a single username and password for Windows and non-Windows systems. The latest version is based on Likewise Identity Service (LWIS), the next-generation authentication engine, and provides enhanced capabilities and integration for Mac OS X-based computers, allowing Mac system administrators to manage Microsoft Active Directory from a Mac OS-based machine, and perform policy editing using familiar Mac tools via the Likewise Administrative Console (LAC).
