The Gluu Server now supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux
The Gluu Server for single sign-on, strong authentication, and web access management is now compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
November 5, 2013 – Austin, TX — Gluu announced today that the newest update to its puppet recipe includes support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) operating systems. Previously, Community Enterprise Operating System (CentOS) was required. The update allows Gluu to remotely build and operate Gluu Servers for enterprise customers who prefer using RHEL, the best supported and most frequently upgraded operating system in the linux ecosystem.
The Gluu Server subscription enables organizations to more easily implement single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, and web access management using open web standards and open source software. Using Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Gluu clients can take full advantage of RHEL’s industry leading operating system for their federation service.
“Gluu’s out-of-the box support for both CentOS and RHEL improves the migration path to Gluu’s technology for organizations committed to open source software,” said Mike Schwartz, CEO at Gluu. “This combined support offers more options for enterprise customers, ultimately making it easier for organizations to utilize Gluu’s industry leading identity and access management suite.”
Gluu’s cutting edge open source OX technology enables dynamic attribute transformation, adaptive authentication and authorization, and can be clustered for high availability, allowing an organization to achieve maximum uptime for servers and handle thousands of authentications and authorizations every second. OX technology combined with a subscription to the Gluu Server can help maximize resource utilization and system efficiency while driving down operating costs. Gluu’s unique hybrid cloud deployment and dedicated server architecture delivers guaranteed security and scalability for large organizations.
“By providing out of the box support for RHEL, Gluu is enabling enterprise customers to run the best supported, most upgraded enterprise linux operating system on the market,” said Schwartz. “This will make it significantly easier for customers to deploy and maintain Gluu on the operating system of their choice.”
Gluu provides IT services to large organizations to help them design, build, and operate authentication and authorization (“AA”) systems to secure web and mobile applications using open source software. Gluu leverages open standards such as OAuth 2.0, SAML, and RADIUS to enable organizational strong authentication, single sign-on (SSO), and web access management (WAM). The “OX” open source project, maintained by Gluu, implements two profiles of OAuth 2.0: OpenID Connect for authentication and UMA for authorization. Gluu’s OX management service enables organizations to quickly deploy an AA service for their Internet domain, on the IAAS platform of their choice.
