Open Source Authentication Provider Offers Free Advanced Management Feature With Service Plan

Free with Purchase of Three-Year Service Plan of Likewise Open Software

BELLEVUE, Wash. ? Likewise Software, the leader in open source authentication and auditing for mixed networks, will now include a free centralized user and group identifier management feature with the purchase of a three-year service plan for its Likewise Open software.

With the advanced Cell Module feature, system administrators can manage Linux, Unix, and Mac users and groups by assigning them user identifiers (UIDs) and group identifiers (GIDs) in Microsoft Active Directory. Previously, the feature was available only with the purchase of a Likewise Enterprise software license.

"We created this new offering in response to the many requests we've had for adding the UID/GID function with Likewise Open," said Barry Crist, the CEO of Likewise Software. "Now we have an offering that fits squarely between the freely available Likewise Open software and our flagship offering, Likewise Enterprise 5.0."

Likewise software integrates Linux, Unix, and Mac computers with Active Directory to provide a single, secure framework for authentication and access control in mixed networks. With Likewise, system administrators can manage all their computers -- Windows, Linux, Unix, and Mac ? from a central location.

Prices for Likewise Open with Cell Module and a 3-year service plan range from $179 to $224 for a server and from $39 to $44 for a workstation, depending on the level of service the customer wants.
