M-Tech Announces Integration with Microsoft Identity Integration Server

Industry Leading Password Management Solution Integrates with Microsoft Identity Integration Server

Calgary, AB - July 9, 2003 - M-Tech Information Technology, Inc., a leading provider of identity management solutions, today announced a certified integration between Microsoft Identity Integration Server and P-Synch, the industry's most complete password management solution.

Increasing market demand for a password management solution that would seamlessly leverage Microsoft Identity Integration Server prompted this integration. Now, P-Synch customers who have already completed Microsoft Identity Integration Server deployment can leverage the user profile data in the metaverse, to expedite P-Synch roll-outs.

"M-Tech is quick to respond to its customers and market demands, as demonstrated by this integration," stated Jackson Shaw, Product Manager at Microsoft. "This integration delivers considerable value to our Microsoft Identity Integration Server customers who are looking to add a password synchronization solution to their infrastructure.

Microsoft Identity Integration Server enables the integration and management of identity information across multiple repositories, systems and platforms. Microsoft Identity Integration Server enhances Active Directory by providing broad interoperability capabilities including: integration with a wide range of identity repositories; provisioning and synchronizing identity information across multiple stores; brokering changes to identity information by automatically detecting updates and sharing the changes across systems; and managing passwords.

The products complement each other by providing multi-platform password synchronization with directory information synchronization. In organizations where Microsoft Identity Integration Server is installed first, P-Synch can take advantage of user profile data already managed by Microsoft Identity Integration Server. In environments where P-Synch is installed first, Microsoft Identity Integration Server can take advantage of user ID reconciliation data that was collected during P-Synch deployment, to expedite its "join" process.

"M-Tech is dedicated to integrating our identity management solutions into existing customer infrastructure. This means that we encourage our customers to leverage existing directory, meta directory and workflow engines that they have already deployed, in conjunction with P-Synch and ID-Synch," said Idan Shoham, M-Tech's CTO. "We see Microsoft identity management deployments at many of our key customers, and it makes sense to help these customers build an integrated solution and minimize total deployment cost."
