Centrify: Smart Card Support for Macs in Active Directory Environments

Centrify is most known for developing Direct Control, a product that extends Microsoft’s Active Directory to include group policy management of non-Windows servers and workstations. Centrify’s Direct Control for Mac offers a number of group policy objects for managing Mac workstations in Windows Server/Active Directory environments. In February, Centrify announced support for smart card authentication of managed Mac OS X computers. This allows Macs in a Windows network environment to use smart cards for login authentication based on a user’s Active Directory account.
