July 21, 2009, Calgary, Canada -- Hitachi ID Systems, today announced the release of the Hitachi ID Systems Connector Pack 1.0. Connectors are programs that enable Hitachi ID Systems' software to integrate with other systems and applications -- to manage users, privileges, passwords, etc.

In the past, connector programs were integrated into each product in the Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite. The connector pack separates the release cycle of integration programs from other Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite components, enabling more frequent updates to integrations.

“By decoupling the connectors from our major product release, we plan to ship more connectors, more often,” says Jason Maharaj, VP Quality Assurance. “The connector pack is now available on our portal for customers to download as needed.”

Hitachi ID Connector Pack 1.0 includes connectors to a wide range of systems and applications, including;

  • Windows and Active Directory.
  • Various LDAP directories, from Sun, IBM, Oracle, Novell and more.
  • Database servers, from Oracle, IBM, Microsoft, Sybase and more.
  • ERP applications including Oracle, SAP, PeopleSoft and more.
  • IT Management applications from HP, BMC, Axios, FrontRange and more.

All recent versions of Hitachi ID products can use connectors from the Connector Pack. This includes:

  • The Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite, versions 6.x.
  • Hitachi ID Privileged Access Manager, versions 5.x,
  • Hitachi ID Password Manager, versions 6.4.x,
  • Hitachi ID Identity Manager, versions 4.3.x.

Customers interested in this connector pack should contact their Hitachi ID Systems account manager or visit the customer portal at Hitachi-ID.com/portal/ to learn more.
