Santa Clara, CA — March 23, 2010 — Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of user provisioning and change management software, today announced it has renewed its Gold Certified Partner status in the Microsoft Partner Program with four critical, customer-required competencies in ISV/Software Solutions, Server Platform, Identity and Secure Access, and Security Solutions. Certifications in these competencies recognize Ensim’s expertise in defining and deploying solutions for customers based on Microsoft technologies.
As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Ensim receives a rich set of benefits, including access, training and technical support for the latest versions of Active Directory, SharePoint, Office Communication Server (Lync), Exchange, and Microsoft mobility solutions. This enables Ensim’s award-winning suite of integrated tools for provisioning and user management to deliver a secure, compliant, and efficient mechanism to enforce IT policy as these applications grow in complexity.
Ensim customers, including some of the largest financial institutions in the world, gain a cost-effective way to ensure the compliance and security of their Microsoft infrastructure by automating key business policies. Ensim Unify’s fine-grain provisioning technology slashes costs and improves efficiency by unifying distinct provisioning tools into a single, policy-driven system.
“We have been a Microsoft Certified Partner since 2003 and a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner since 2006,” said Scott Young, vice president of marketing and product management at Ensim. “Through our Microsoft partnership, we demonstrate our expertise in the management and optimization of Microsoft technologies for our customers. The benefits provided through our Gold Certified Partner status allow us to continue to enhance our products.”
To maintain Gold Certified Partner status, Ensim demonstrated competencies designed to help differentiate capabilities with specific Microsoft technologies to customers looking for a particular type of solution. Each Competency has a unique set of requirements and benefits, formulated to accurately represent the specific skills and services that partners bring to the technology industry. Ensim achieved the following competencies:
Microsoft’s ISV/Software Solutions competency provides exclusive benefits and support to Microsoft Gold Certified Partners who specialize in developing and marketing packaged software solutions based on Microsoft technologies.
The Server Platform competency assures customers of the expertise to address their needs in creating operational efficiencies through effective use of application resources, reducing IT labor and facilities costs, and consolidating servers.
Identity and Secure Access
Ensim Unify was designed to securely manage user identities and control access to privileged information. Attaining the Identity and Secure Access specialization helps us deliver solutions designed to meet the needs of our customers with respect to access to specific application entitlements at a fine-grain feature level within the supported Microsoft applications.
The Security Solutions competency recognizes the unique skills and requirements of partners specializing in delivering security-based solutions. Microsoft Gold Certified Partners enrolled in this competency have proved their skill in advanced security solutions designed to protect customer information assets by building solutions such as security management and operations and identity and access management solutions.
“Security is a priority for Microsoft, and we rely on our partners to help us deliver security-based solutions to our customers,” said Mark Hassall, director of Security and Access Product Management at Microsoft Corp. “As customers continue to automate business processes, solutions competencies such as this one enable our partners to better identify and showcase their security solutions skills to respond to increasing customer demands to better secure and optimize their infrastructure.”
The Microsoft Partner Program was launched in October 2003 and represents Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to the success of partners worldwide. The program offers a single, integrated partnering framework that recognizes partner expertise, rewards the total impact that partners have in the technology marketplace, and delivers more value to help partners’ businesses be successful.
