M-Tech announces the beta release of its Account Management Product, ID-Synch

Calgary, Canada - August 10, 2000

M-Tech Mercury Information Technology, Inc. announces a beta testing program for the ID-Synch directory administration system. Leveraging its expertise in heterogeneous password management, M-Tech will incorporate support for over 60 target system types in the very first release of ID-Synch.

ID-Synch simplifies multi-system directory management by providing system administrators and help desk operators with a uniform, enterprise-wide facility for creating, deleting, enabling, disabling and renaming login accounts. These operations are all available through a Java graphical user interface (GUI), from anywhere on the network.

ID-Synch uses templates and roles to allow non-technical users to manage accounts on any system. Empowering support staff to manage accounts will free system administrators from this routine task. More importantly, a single point of contact means that account activation can be completed in hours rather than days, leading to substantial productivity improvements -- especially for new staff.

Besides streamlining the account management business process, ID-Synch enhances network security in several ways:

ID-Synch can manage accounts on virtually any system in a modern network, including:

Other ID-Synch benefits to the enterprise include:

Organizations interested in participating in the ID-Synch beta testing program should contact M-Tech at or 1.403.233.0740 by August 11, 2000.
