Industry Expert Lauds M-Tech's Access Certification Solution

Calgary, AB - October 4, 2006 - M-Tech Information Technology, Inc., a leading provider of identity management (IdM) solutions is pleased to announce that ID-Certify, M-Tech's access certification solution, has received top marks from industry expert Julian Ashbourn. SC Magazine's review gave ID-Certify four stars in its recent "Policy Management Solutions" group test, which is published in the October 2006 edition of the technology magazine.

The review highlights ID-Certify's ease of use, focused functionality and straight-forward deployment. It points out that ID-Certify is an excellent solution for cleaning up user privileges where "applications have complex and dissimilar rules around the control of access."

"For some companies, this could be a godsend in terms of saved time alone", states Ashbourn. "(ID-Certify) is an extremely useful tool to ensure that your access rules are being maintained across the enterprise".

ID-Certify is a unique M-Tech solution for distributed review and cleanup of user entitlements. ID-Certify ensures that user access rights are current and appropriate by periodically requiring business stake-holders to review user profiles, login accounts and security group memberships. Different stake-holders can be asked to review different users: managers review their direct subordinates, application owners review the users of their applications, and security group owners review their memberships. ID-Certify easily enables an organization to comply with regulatory requirements that stem from Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, 21CFR11, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, the EU Privacy Directive, PIPEDA and more.
