M-Tech Teams with RSA Security to Provide Trusted Identity and Access Management Solutions
Leading Companies Expand Strategic Partnership to Offer Integrated Identity Management Solutions that Delivers Improved Security and Rapid ROI
Calgary, AB - September 8, 2003 - M-Tech Information Technology, Inc., a leading provider of identity management solutions, today announced that it has renewed its certification to the RSA Secured® Partner Program.
M-Tech's identity management solutions, P-Synch and ID-Synch, can manage already-deployed RSA SecurID® tokens, provision tokens to new users, manage RSA SecurID token inventories, and manage both passwords and accounts on RSA ClearTrust® web access management software. Certified integration between M-Tech and RSA Security products help ensure that customers recognize a rapid ROI, improved security, increased productivity and streamlined business processes.
M-Tech's P-Synch is designed to manage RSA SecurID authenticators:
- Synchronize RSA SecurID token PINs with alphanumeric network passwords.
- Clear or reset forgotten PINs.
- Resynchronize token clocks with the RSA ACE/Server software.
- Enable or disable tokens.
- Set or disable emergency access codes for temporarily misplaced tokens.
These features are all available through both self-service and assisted service web user interfaces, allowing organizations to reduce token IT support call volumes, and shorten resolution time for remaining token management help desk calls.
M-Tech's P-Synch is engineered to also manage RSA ClearTrust passwords, including password synchronization, self-service password reset and assisted password reset.
M-Tech's ID-Synch is designed to manage RSA SecurID authenticators:
- Track physical inventories of unassigned tokens at multiple locations.
- Allow business users to request new tokens for themselves or others with a self-service web form.
- Allow business users to authorize requests for tokens using an electronic workflow.
- Automatically assign tokens to new users, after workflow approvals or using a delegated administration facility. Tokens are activated upon delivery to their new owners.
- Deactivate and unassign tokens from users who no longer need them.
M-Tech's ID-Synch is engineered to also manage RSA ClearTrust login accounts, including creating new users, updating existing user profiles, and deleting accounts that are no longer required.
As part of the RSA Secured Partner Program, P-Synch and ID-Synch have been awarded "RSA Secured RSA SecurID Ready" certification and "RSA Secured RSA ClearTrust Ready." The RSA Secured certification lets organizations know that a powerful strategic partnership has been created that leverages market-leading security products and technologies to meet the needs of an effective e-business strategy.
"We're pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with M-Tech and continue to provide interoperable solutions for our joint customers" said Stuart Cohen, director of partner development at RSA Security. "Our work with M-Tech is only the latest in our ongoing efforts to provide customers with a wide choice in provisioning solutions necessary to form a strong identity and access management system."
"These certified integrations were driven by our customers, who need efficient and secure automated processes to manage their tokens and Intranet login accounts." said Idan Shoham, M-Tech CTO. "Customers demand self-service and business-focused processes for token provisioning, token management, token deactivation, password synchronization and more. M-Tech's integration with RSA Security infrastructure provide these capabilities, and give our customers immediate ROI."
