At the Forefront of Identity Management

The Microsoft Forefront security line just keeps on growing. The newest member is an update to Forefront Identity Manager 2010.

Identity Manager isn't just for Windows, but manages access and passwords for heterogeneous systems. I tried to find out for you what these other systems were by going to the Identity Manager Web site, downloading the data sheet and moseying around. But nowhere could I find mention of a non-Windows computers. I have to assume by heterogeneous they mean Linux, Unix and mainframes.

In any event, R2 lets end users more easily reset passwords, and lets IT create system of role-based access to network resources.
