Ensim Releases Unify 4.5 Shared Edition Supporting Latest Microsoft HMC Solution

Santa Clara, California - August 11, 2008 - Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of user provisioning and access control software, today announced its support for the Microsoft Solution for Hosted Messaging and Collaboration Version 4.5 (HMC 4.5).

As a participant in Microsoft's Technical Adoption Program (TAP), Ensim extends Microsoft's technology with its Ensim Unify Shared Edition, a single, centralized software application that simplifies the day-to-day burden of activating, configuring and managing a service provider's hosted infrastructure. The latest edition of Unify Shared Edition, Version 4.5, can be installed in a wide range of deployment scenarios, including the new HMC 4.5, HMC 4.0, and homegrown infrastructures.

Some of the features available in Ensim Unify 4.5 are:

Support for Microsoft HMC 4.5: Ensim is pleased to announce that Unify Platform 4.5 is compatible with the latest release of Microsoft's HMC product

Control Panel Customization Using Role Management: With Unify's role management feature set, service providers and reseller administrators gain granular control over all operations performed by the system administrators.

Support for Ensim Migration Tool: Service providers can now use the Ensim's Migration Tool (EMT) to connect to existing organizations, resellers, and users that were created using Microsoft's HMC solution. This feature can also be used to migrate organizations (OUs) and users (created using a legacy solution) to Ensim Unify without having to re-create them.

New Password Management Enhancements:  Service providers can now configure Unify to accept more than one password hint question.

Support for Microsoft .NET 3.0:  In Unify platform 4.5.0, the Unify provisioning engine and control panel servers use Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0.

New Web Services Methods:  Unify platform 4.5.0 includes 50+ new web service methods.

Confirmation for Organization and Reseller Removal: As an added safety precaution, when enabled, this feature requires administrators to enter an authentication password before being able to delete any organization or reseller.

“We remain committed to giving our customers the tools that keep them ahead of the curve by supporting a variety of the latest applications,” said Francois Depayras, vice president of marketing and alliances at Ensim Corporation. “With Unify, service provider customers can focus on delivering their hosted services as opposed to developing them, and are afforded the convenience of deploying these services over any type of infrastructure, whether it be the new HMC 4.5 or a homegrown platform.”
