Native .NET Libraries and Windows Remote Desktop Support Spans Microsoft Workloads in Cloud, Hybrid and PaaS Environments
WALTHAM, Mass.– April 5, 2016 – Conjur, Inc., provider of automated access management software, has released significant product enhancements for Microsoft® Windows® environments that addresses the growing customer requirements for building, managing and securing Windows workloads in cloud and hybrid cloud environments. Conjur’s Windows capabilities deliver a consolidated approach for access, control, authorization and audit for Windows resources and development environments.
Now, customers can seamlessly extend their on-premise datacenter operations to cloud services, leverage Microsoft Azure services and accelerate the .NET software development lifecycle while strengthening security practices.
Conjur’s new support for native Windows authentication and real-time application of authorization and permissions to dynamic virtual machines ensures an IT graceful migration.
“As we broaden our market adoption, the need for first class Microsoft Windows support is apparent, especially in hybrid and heterogeneous environments,” said Mitch Haile, Vice President of Products at Conjur. “We are excited to support both .NET native client APIs and Windows Remote Desktop Access Management for modern, highly automated IT environments.”
Conjur’s Window’s release incorporates support for:
- Windows Remote Desktop Connector: Integrate Windows authentication for user login to Windows instances operating in cloud environments
- Native .NET Client Library: Conjur’s new .NET client library is open source and available immediately.
“Conjur’s new native .NET libraries and Remote Desktop access to Microsoft Windows hosts in the cloud is a significant step forward in enabling automated infrastructure security,” says Dave Bechberger, Senior Architect at Expero Inc.
Through a centralized authorization service exposed through APIs, Conjur enables enterprises to apply a consistent set of policies for production, staging and test environment access throughout the entire software development cycle.
