Ensim Announces Industry’s First Integrated Management Solution for Enterprise Unified Communications

Ensim Unify simplifies, automates, and secures the deployment and management of applications, users, and devices

Sunnyvale, California --May 07, 2007 –Ensim Corporation, a leading provider of management software to the service provider industry, today announced the industry’s first integrated management solution for enterprise unified communications. Based on the widely-deployed Ensim Unify, the Ensim Unify Enterprise Edition offers integrated provisioning, administration and user self-service for email, VoIP, fax, IM, collaboration, and mobile devices. In service provider deployments, these capabilities have been demonstrated to reduce administration costs by as much as 50% while simultaneously increasing end-user satisfaction.

“As more and more enterprises begin adopting unified communications, a key consideration is how to roll out these capabilities and then manage them after deployment,” said Brent Kelly, senior analyst and partner at Wainhouse Research. “By removing complexity from provisioning and configuring applications through automation, Ensim allows enterprises to get significant benefits from their unified communications from day one.”

Developed jointly with Microsoft Corporation, Ensim Unify is currently utilized by tens of thousands of small and medium-sized businesses worldwide via 60 of the world’s largest telecommunications and hosting service providers. The new Enterprise Edition brings these proven capabilities to medium and large enterprises for internal deployment, enabling them to meet the growing requirements of unified communications services.

“We need to rapidly equip our new employees with multiple communications applications, both at their desks and on their mobile devices,” said Edward Voermans, technical specialist at InfoSupport. “With Ensim Unify, we’ll be able to automatically provision and administer all of our systems, saving our IT organization many hours of going from desk to desk to manually perform these tasks.”

Ensim Unify Enterprise Edition includes numerous capabilities designed to reduce the cost of deploying and administering unified communications. They include:

•Automated provisioning of multiple features and applications with associated devices via a single command
•Instant self-configuration of clients and devices, such as Outlook, IP phones and mobile devices
•Single user password creation, reset and management across all communications services
•Secure delegation of tasks to help desk personnel

Ensim Unify Enterprise Edition can be downloaded and deployed in just minutes with a single-click installation. It works with an enterprise’s existing infrastructure without requiring modification or reconfiguration of existing systems.

“With tens of thousands of small and medium-sized businesses using Unify through our service provider partners, developing a solution for enterprises was a natural strategy for Ensim,” said David Wippich, CEO of Ensim. “We are very excited to provide our flagship product and proven capabilities to medium and large organizations so they too can benefit from our unique ability to unify unified communications.”
