Best practices

This section, created by Centrify Systems Engineering in collaboration with Centrify Engineering and Centrify Professional Services, describes the deployment best practices for Centrify Authentication Service, Privilege Elevation Service, and Audit & Monitoring Service (formerly Centrify Infrastructure Services or Centrify Server Suite). The goal of this document is to outline and document the actions customers can take to prevent unexpected service degradation with the Centrify product.

Using our best practices that have evolved over many years, we have developed the Centrify software to be extremely resilient to many types of Active Directory topologies, networks and environments. In addition, we have gathered data from our major deployments to provide the top items that a customer should do to ensure the Centrify deployment is healthy. The best practices are organized by functional area.
