M-Tech joins Microsoft Gold Certified partner program

July 20, 2001
Calgary, Canada

Enterprises using Windows 2000 Active Directory now have a proven solution to expedite the password management process.

M-Tech Mercury Information Technology Inc. has joined the Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Program. P-Synch, M-Tech's total password management solution, is now certified for the Windows 2000 operating system and can be used to expedite the password management process in Windows 2000 Active Directory.

The innovative technology in P-Synch V6.0 accelerates password propagation across global Active Directory domains. This allows users to login with their new password immediately after a help desk password reset, self-service password reset, or web-based synchronization. Users get instant use of the new password even from remote locations.

"Many of our enterprise customers are migrating to Windows 2000 Active Directory," said Idan Shoham, M-Tech's CTO. "They have found that password resets made by a central helpdesk in a global Active Directory domain can take hours to reach distant users. M-Tech's innovative solution to this problem allows users to immediately log in with a newly reset password."

The Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Program certifies companies that have proven their commitment and expertise in enhancing one or more specialized functional areas, when delivering Microsoft technologies. To become a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, the participating company must meet a high set of criteria for each category, including enhanced functionality and a portfolio of real-world customer references. These partners are the most skilled companies in specific solution areas.

"Given the number of choices in software products in the market today, customers need to quickly learn who is committed to integration and testing," said Rosa Garcia, General Manager of the Partner Programs Group at Microsoft Corp. "They need to be assured that a software provider has a policy of effective platform testing and integration. With commitments to the Microsoft Windows and .NET platforms, M-Tech has clearly demonstrated that its software products are very robust and credible. Microsoft is pleased to have M-Tech as a Gold Certified Partner for Software Products."
