Product Details

What is BeyondTrust Active Directory (AD) Bridge?

BeyondTrust Active Directory Bridge centralizes authentication and configuration management for Unix, Linux, and Mac environments by extending Active Directory’s Kerberos authentication and single sign-on and Group Policy capabilities to these platforms.

Core Features - To reduce the risk and complexity of managing a heterogeneous environment.

  • Active Directory Authentication - Enables access Unix and Linux environments using Active Directory credentials, single sign-on, LDAP, and Smart Card Authentication.
  • Group Policy Extension - Extends native group policy management capabilities to include specific group policy settings for Unix and Linux.
  • Auditing and Reporting - Audit events in real time and leverage a centralized and secure reporting module with built-in, regulatory-specific reports.
  • Access Control - Controls access to non-Windows systems by defining which users are permitted to log on to which systems via Active Directory and policy.
  • Consolidated Identity Directories - Migrates multiple authentication mechanisms, identities, and directories to a single AD-based infrastructure for all systems and users.
  • Simplified Identity Management - Provides a single point of control for managing employee, partner, and third-party authentication.
  • Extended Unix/Linux Platform Support - Enables a wide range of Unix and Linux systems, including RedHat, Solaris, Ubuntu and others, by connecting them with Active Directory.
  • Deployment Flexibility - Provide non-impact, schema-less deployment to enable cross-platform management of identity and access control.

Security administrators often struggle to enforce Zero Trust and other security policies consistently across the heterogeneous enterprise. AD Bridge simplifies the secure management of access and identities, and the path to implementing zero trust enterprise-wide. It will automatically map policy settings and apply them to all systems—regardless of operating system or application. AD Bridge lets organizations attain consistent security policies and access controls across the enterprise, and seamlessly transition users from desktops to remote machines or between systems, without requiring credential reentry.

Additionally, Extending native group policy management across non-Windows platforms enables centralized configuration management, reducing the risk and complexity of managing a heterogeneous environment.

For Microsoft's current offering Entra ID, which going forward replaces the former Active Directory, BeyondTrust also notes that existing infrastructure for AD Bridge 22.3 and later versions provides native support for Entra ID, which means customers won't have to change their infrastructure.

We use pbis package to connect ad and authentic user. It connect easily and very less login issue we see due to pbis. In my case it is highly recommended to use for Ad services and to use LDAP authentication with Linux server in larger environment. Its also support ad management command which help me to get data from VMs
  • Ad authentication
  • Ad management
  • Intergrate with powerbroker policy
  • Auto upgrade feature
  • Central control GUI
  • More documentation to use
It's support LDAP and AD authentication but working with redhat it still comes under thrid party which redhat not support. I would like if pbis can be bundle with redhat which helps to get support during production issue and maintenance of all server along with patching. Otherwise pbis is one of tool which is recommended to use
