BELLEVUE, Wash., May 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yvo van Doorn, field engineer at Likewise Software, will join interoperability experts from companies including Microsoft on a panel at the European Identity Conference in Munich next week.

The panel, Managing Identities Once - Active Directory-Focused Centralization, takes place Wednesday, May 11 at 3 p.m. CET. The panel will explore different approaches supporting a full integration of Unix and Linux management into Active Directory (AD). The panel will discuss what is needed, look at the limitations and experiences with such approaches, and talk about alternatives to that type of integration, like using E-SSO or provisioning to achieve at least some of the results.

"Active Directory is the directory of choice for most modern IT organizations," said van Doorn. "With more companies turning to Linux and Unix servers for their datacenters and Mac and Linux desktops for their employee workstations, Likewise fills a huge need for both IT administrators and their CIOs."

Likewise Open is the productized open source version of Likewise Identity Services, which has been licensed by many leading technology companies, including VMware, HP, DataDomain/EMC, and Isilon. It has also been included in the main repository of Ubuntu since its April 2008 release.

Likewise Open can be downloaded for free from the company's website at www.likewise.com/download .

Likewise Enterprise, which builds on the authentication engine of Likewise Open, makes it easy for IT managers to authenticate users, control access to applications and data, centrally manage settings with group policies, and create reports for regulatory audits.
