Access-related features

Access-related features are provided by the Centrify Authentication Service and the Centrify Privilege Elevation Service. Together, these services enable you to manage access and administrative privileges for the computers in your organization. The primary tool for managing access-related features is Access Manager.

Access Manager provides a central console for defining and managing role‑based access control rules and applying them to specific users, groups, or computers. For example, you can use Access Manager to delegate specific administrative tasks to a particular user or group. As an administrator, you can also use Access Manager to configure roles with start and expiration dates or limit the availability of a role to specific days of the week or hours of the day.
