CTMS and M-Tech Form Strategic Alliance

Joint Customer Base to Benefit from Best-of-Breed Identity Management and Managed Services Offerings

Calgary, AB - March 30, 2005 - M-Tech Information Technology, Inc., a leading provider of identity management solutions, today announced a partnership with CTMS, an active Managed Service Provider (MSP) and reseller in the United Kingdom.

CTMS provides a variety of solutions to clients, including asset management and help desk technologies. Through the new M-Tech partnership, CTMS is now able to extend a richer offering to existing customers, including password management and user provisioning. CTMS is now also able to engage new customers, addressing IT security and regulatory compliance business drivers using the M-Tech's identity management suite.

"ID-Certify, M-Tech's user access certification software, is an effective solution for organizations seeking to implement strong internal access controls as a component of their regulatory compliance program," says David Keen, Director of HD Solutions. "This solution is especially attractive since the software streamlines the elimination of orphan accounts and improper security rights, using an organizationally distributed audit of rights. In addition, P-Synch, M-Tech's password management software, has been instrumental in reducing IT help desk call volume at many outsourcers and in many enterprise deployments. This combination of regulatory compliance and cost savings matches the needs of our clients," adds Keen.

Another M-Tech product that CTMS will offer is Hitachi ID Automated Discovery, an automated solution for discovering and reconciling login IDs across systems. The use of Hitachi ID Automated Discovery expedites deployment of other enterprise identity management functions, and simultaneously creates assurance for auditors that ex-employees are no longer able to access sensitive systems.

"The partnership with CTMS allows M-Tech to reach new markets while expanding the M-Tech identity management suite," says Richard Darrell, Vice President, Channel and Managed Services Sales.

CTMS has combined some of M-Tech's solutions with their own products to deliver more extensive, "best of breed" solutions to their clients. These joint solutions, integrating identity management, asset management and issue tracking, demonstrate the flexibility, scalability and easy integration of M-Tech's identity management suite. "We are always interested in partnerships that create value for customers by integrating our products into a larger offering, moving up the value chain," adds Darrell.

The partnership is already off the ground as CTMS and M-Tech both participated in two Identity Management Briefings with UK customers and partners. These were successful seminars that generated a lot of interest in the identity management suite offering. "We are confident that this partnership will lead to new opportunities for both M-Tech and CTMS," says Darrell.
