M-Tech Information Technology, Inc. Placed in Challenger Quadrant of Analyst Firm's 1H06 User Provisioning Magic Quadrant

User-provisioning implementations are increasing due to regulatory compliance needs.

Calgary, AB - May 3, 2006 - M-Tech Information Technology, Inc., a leading provider of identity management solutions, today announced that it has been positioned in the Challengers Quadrant of the 'Gartner Magic Quadrant For User Provisioning Vendors, 1H06' report (authored by Roberta J. Witty, Ant Allan, Ray Wagner: April 25,2006). The report is available at

"In this Magic Quadrant, Gartner ranks vendors based on product capability and market performance through March 2006. This Magic Quadrant considers which vendors will likely dominate sales and influence technology directions through 2006, as well as considers which vendors are most visible among clients, generate the greatest number of requests for information and contract review, and account for the most new and ongoing installations in Gartner's client base. For more details, see 'User-Provisioning Market: Definition and Description, 1H06.'"

"We believe the Gartner report reflects our focus on customer success and acknowledges our responsiveness to complex customer needs, such as access attestation, orgchart construction and secure management of administrative credentials." said Gideon Shoham, M-Tech CEO. "Our number one priority is lowering deployment time, and we measure this with an industry-leading services-to-license ratio," he added.
