Likewise Software Ships with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 from Novell

Integrates SUSE Linux Desktop with Microsoft Networks

Likewise announced today that its Likewise Enterprise offering will ship as part of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 from Novell.

Likewise Enterprise securely connects computers running SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 with Microsoft Active Directory -- making it easy to authenticate users, control access to applications and data, centrally manage settings with group policies and create reports for regulatory audits.

“Likewise is seeing acceleration in the number of our Linux desktop projects,” said Barry Crist, CEO of Likewise. “Novell is a natural partner for us as it has been a pioneer in the area of Linux desktops with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop. The company clearly understands the widespread demand to offer better integration into Active Directory environments.”

The group policies in Likewise Enterprise let system administrators manage the security settings of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop computers and users from a central system. Likewise Enterprise also includes GNOME group policies to control SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop user and computer settings -- policies that are based on the GNOME GConf project to define preferences like the default web browser or when to lock down a desktop.

Under the terms of the agreement between Likewise and Novell, all Novell customers who buy SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 will get Likewise Enterprise, and it will be part of the SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop software repositories.

Likewise Enterprise addresses the authentication, auditing, and reporting needs of companies running multiple operating systems in their network. Likewise Enterprise is a simple upgrade for customers who have installed Likewise Open and want to use group policies to manage their mixed environment and use the auditing features of Likewise Enterprise to view access reports. The auditing features help companies comply with regulatory requirements, such as those of Sarbanes-Oxley.

Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
