Ensim Releases Upgrade to Unify Enterprise Edition


Version 1.5 Offers Enhanced User Management and Customization Features to Maximize Productivity


Santa Clara, CA - January 15, 2008 - Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of management software for unified communications infrastructure, today announced the immediate availability of Unify Enterprise Edition, Version 1.5. With this upgrade, Ensim Unify brings new functionality to enterprises looking to optimize their IT infrastructure, increase the security and control of Exchange deployments and enable a mobile workforce.

Ensim Unify Enterprise Edition is a comprehensive system-management software solution that allows enterprises to easily automate provisioning and change requests within their unified communications infrastructure. Available for Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange and mobility applications, Unify helps organizations significantly reduce operational costs while increasing IT and employee productivity. Its template-driven management interface enables IT to automate both simple and complex tasks, as well as offer delegated administration to employees.

“Deploying Ensim Unify has allowed my team to automate most of our change management requests, which has driven down our operational costs,” said Davis Truong, senior systems engineer at CashEdge, a leading online financial institution provider and Deloitte Technology 500. “Furthermore, we are able to increase employee productivity by giving them basic administration rights for tasks such as password reset and distribution list management.”

Key features of the 1.5 release include:

Quick Start Wizard for Administrators

Ensim Unify Enterprise now offers a quick-start, step-by-step wizard designed to help system administrators perform post-installation configuration tasks to ensure full functionality is available to administrators.

Enhanced User Management
With the latest version, system administrators can select default groups for a user when creating the user account, lock down user templates, manage user attributes (such as home directory path, home drive letter, profile path, and logon script path), move user accounts from one OU location to another, list a user’s group memberships, check availability of a requested user name, and customize the list of user attributes being managed by Unify.

Improved OU Management
Ensim Unify now provides a simplified OU management. The OU structure in Active Directory and any updates to the OU hierarchy are automatically synchronized with Unify. Additionally, administrators can now select the OU location during the provisioning process when creating users, groups or contacts.

Simplified Role Customizations
Using Unify’s simplified web-based UI, system administrators can customize and manage administrative rights according to each admin role in just a few simple clicks.

More Configuration Options
System administrators can configure Unify according to their internal business policies. Once configured, Unify will automatically apply these policies for each defined business process, including user account, user termination and permanent termination settings, group membership, archiving user account, and archiving user home folder and data.

New Web Services API
The new version of Unify Enterprise features an improved web services API for seamless integration with an enterprise’s existing systems.

“Enterprises that align their IT strategies with their business needs are better positioned for competitive growth and differentiation,” said Francois Depayras, vice president of marketing and alliances at Ensim Corporation. “The latest version of our Unify Enterprise Edition provides enterprises with a powerful solution that allows them to quickly deploy and run an extensible platform that addresses all of their provisioning, automation and IT infrastructure needs at a more predictable cost than they could deliver themselves.”
