Ensim Announces Upgrade to Password Management Solution



New version of Unify Password Manager allows employees to reset their own passwords from any system or Windows log-in screen


Santa Clara, CA - June 3, 2008 - Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of user provisioning and access control software, today announced the immediate availability of the Ensim Unify Password Manager, Version 2.5. Part of the latest module in Ensim’s Unify Enterprise Suite, Password Manager 2.5 allows organizations to adhere to strong password policy enforcement, without slowing employee productivity or using up precious IT resources.

Requiring less than two hours for installation, Ensim’s Password Manager is a simple solution that minimizes calls to the help desk and maximizes employee productivity. With it, organizations of all sizes can decrease the number of help desk calls for password resets by more than 30%. Using a simple web-based interface, IT administrators can set and strictly enforce strong password policies by establishing any number of identity challenge questions that allow employees to verify their identity and securely reset their own passwords. Additionally, Password Manager provides a complete audit trail for compliance and security initiatives.

“It’s great to set strong password policies, but it can also be a headache for IT departments and a drain on productivity,” said Scott Young, vice president of product marketing at Ensim Corporation. “With Ensim Unify Password Manager 2.5, we provide a simple, effective and reliable solution for solving the growing problem of password management.”

The upgrades featured in Unify Password Manager 2.5 include the ability for employees to reset their own passwords from the Windows® log-in prompt. Employees who have forgotten their passwords are no longer stuck at the Windows log-in prompt. Additionally, Password Manager 2.5 supports the higher security “Graphical Identification and Authentication” (GINA) extensions that are now available and selected from the self-service portal.
