M-Tech's ID-Access Manages 300,000 groups for 200,000 Employees at 244 Sites, 24 Countries.

Calgary, Canada - November 8, 2007 -M-Tech Information Technology Inc, a leading provider of identity management solutions, today announced the successful deployment of ID-Access with a world leader in the energy sector. ID-Access, a solution to manage group membership, will support group management for 200,000 of the customer's users. Users within the company work at 244 sites in 24 countries world-wide.

The deployment and roll out of ID-Access was carried out in partnership with IBM Global Services, the technology services and consulting division of IBM.

John Atkinson, a Delivery Project Executive for IBM, assisted in managing the implementation stages of the project and offered praise to M-Tech staff. Atkinson commented, "M-Tech's professional services team showed flexibility, integrity and tenacity throughout the implementation, particularly when dealing with the complexities of our client's Active Directory idiosyncrasies."

"ID-Access is the only solution currently available to effectively manage user group membership in large AD environments," noted Gideon Shoham, M-Tech's CEO. "M-Tech is proud of the successful deployment of ID-Access in such a large and complex organization. The effective cooperation with IBM Global Services will lead the way to more joint projects like this."
