Univention: Single sign-on made easy for Ubuntu clients

Bremen, April 26, 2018 – Today, Univention releases the Domain Join Assistant for Univention Corporate Server (UCS). This new tool allows administrators to integrate Ubuntu machines into a UCS domain without any additional manual configuration. All users can directly log in to an Ubuntu desktop using their usual domain accounts. With this automation, Univention significantly helps administrators to manage Ubuntu clients on the network. Thanks to a Kerberos SAML integration, organizations who are already using the recently released UCS 4.3 can now also offer their users single sign-on for the Ubuntu clients. The new Domain Join Assistant will replace the previous Univention Corporate Client (UCC). However, Univention customers with a maintenance contract will receive updates for UCC until April 30, 2021.

Univention Corporate Server 4.3: Simpler, Faster, and More User-Friendly Administration

Bremen, March 14, 2018 – Univention is proud to present the latest Univention Corporate Server (UCS) release. Version 4.3 of the established Open Source software now allows administrators to customize the portal pages which can be set up in UCS to suit the specific requirements of their organization very simply via the drag and drop feature. In addition, they are also able to make the more than 90 enterprise applications in UCS’ integrated App Center available to users. The users access these applications via the portal pages and, insofar as the respective application permits, only need to log in once thanks to the single sign-on mechanism. Univention has also considerably improved the data import performance. In this way, UCS 4.3 allows smaller companies to administrate heterogeneous IT environments with ease and fulfills the requirements of larger organizations with tens of thousands of users at the same time.
