Access Control, Password Control
and Identity Management from S4Software
(previously known as GUARDIAN)
is a streamlined account and security management tool for UNIX/Linux, and
is independent of the specific operating system variant. Secure4Access is
designed to overcome the limitations of UNIX systems by providing centralized account
and identity management along with access and password control.
Many organizations utilize Secure4Access
to pass internal and external audits. Meeting compliance regulations such as
Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, FISMA, GLBA and NISPOM stanards requires stringent access
control and password management policies that go beyond the standard operating
system options. Secure4Access can close that gap, simplify administration
and secure your systems.
