Expanding the M-Tech Identity Management Suite with the Release of P-Synch 6.3.0
Major Upgrade Enhances Usability and Simplifies Administration
Calgary, AB - May 1, 2006 -M-Tech Information Technology, Inc., a leading provider of identity management solutions, today announced the general availability of P-Synch 6.3.0. This product upgrade includes substantial enhancements to the P-Synch technology platform, plus a number of significant improvements to ease of use and ease of administration.
Over the past several years, M-Tech has expanded its identity management solution from stand-alone password management (P-Synch) and user provisioning (ID-Synch) to an integrated suite of products spanning access certification (ID-Certify), network resource access administration (ID-Access), orgchart construction and maintenance (ID-Org), and secure management of administrator credentials (ID-Archive).
P-Synch 6.3.0 builds on this integration, and takes on both the standard user interface of the Hitachi ID Management Suite, along with more shared technology infrastructure. The new P-Synch release includes:
- A harmonized user interface, consistent with current releases of other Hitachi ID Management Suite components.
- Shared connectors for P-Synch, ID-Synch and other suite components.
- Simplified support for clearing intruder lockout, in cases where users do not wish to concurrently reset their passwords.
- Support for target system groups, to enable multiple, inconsistent password policies without having to resort to multiple P-Synch instances.
- Improved integration with Lotus Notes ID files, supporting ID file registration and delivery directly, rather than through a hybrid solution that requires both P-Synch and ID-Synch.
- Closer integration with ID-Synch installations, including better data synchronization and single sign-on between the two products.
"P-Synch 6.3.0 is a significant release for our customers, and will help them to more easily migrate from simple installations, that only provide password management services to end-users, to more complex deployments, including user provisioning, access certification and other identity management functions," said Idan Shoham, M-Tech CTO.
P-Synch 6.3.0 is available immediately to all current P-Synch licensees and to all new product evaluators.
