Likewise Touts Growth Linking Red Hat into Mixed Corporate Networks

Bundling with Red Hat Enterprise Server drives 100 percent year-over-year growth

Likewise will be a Silver sponsor at the Red Hat Summit June 22-25 demonstrating how its software can help integrate Red Hat systems securely on corporate networks using Active Directory.

"More than half of Likewise customer server licenses are on Red Hat -- so our relationship with them is a critical one," said Tracy Lothringer, director of strategic alliances, Likewise. "Red Hat is moving well beyond data center oriented Unix migration and is reaching into the broader market. We're seeing RHEL adoption in market segments that hadn't been using Unix previously -- representing new growth for Linux. These customers require solutions to unify their increasingly mixed environments."

Likewise is a previous winner of the annual Red Hat Innovation Award in the category of "Enhanced Security" -- cited for its effective use of Red Hat solutions to heighten the security of IT systems. In addition, Likewise is a Red Hat "Ready Business Partner" with software that has been tested and built from the ground up to work well with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Likewise Open enables desktops and servers running Red Hat to join an organization's existing Active Directory. Likewise Enterprise builds on the authentication engine of Likewise Open, making it simple for IT managers to authenticate users, control access to applications and data, centrally manage settings with group policies, and create reports for regulatory audits.
