First Access Management Solution Provider Introduces SOAP Web Service

CALGARY, CANADA - March 19, 2003 - Hitachi ID Systems, Inc., the industry leader in identity management solutions, today announced the availability of ID-Synch v1.2. ID-Synch is one of the most flexible access management solutions for enabling organizations to effectively manage accounts while reducing processing time and significantly decreasing costs.

In response to customer demand, ID-Synch v1.2 introduces a new SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) XML web service, extending the reach of existing security workflows developed with products such as Lotus Notes or Microsoft .net.

ID-Synch is now able to act as a fulfillment engine on behalf of an existing workflow system, meta directory, or other identity management technology.

Customers were looking for a solution that would work with SOAP web services and M-Tech has delivered that. ID-Synch v1.2 is a testament to M-Tech's commitment to bringing its customers, and the market, the most comprehensive and intuitive access management solution," stated Idan Shoham, M-Tech CTO. According to M-Tech CTO, Mr. Idan Shoham, "The new feature was generating so much interest among customers that it was timely to introduce it now with a minor release instead of waiting for the next major release."
