SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of change management, user provisioning and access control software, today announced the immediate availability of Ensim Unify Enterprise Edition, Version 2.7. The latest upgrade offers new functionality aimed at proactively enforcing compliance policies and improving IT efficiency by eliminating manual processes and providing stricter security for mobile devices and distribution group management.
Ensims award-winning suite of access management and provisioning tools include support for Active Directory (AD), MS Exchange, BlackBerry®, Windows Mobile, Office Communications Server (OCS), and more. Version 2.7 enables organizations to more easily meet compliance directives through enforced standardization, as well as plug security holes, such as misconfiguration of security groups and improper passwords, by eliminating reliance on manual processes or scripts.
According to Scott Crawford, Research Director at Enterprise Management Associates, As vital a component as Active Directory has become to IT policy administration, the risk of making a mistake using manual processes or scripts is great, to say the least. With tools that implement IT policies and automate their execution, like Ensim Unify, the risk of unauthorized AD manipulation that could directly threaten critical information resources is significantly reduced. This not only makes for a more streamlined directory, but guarantees a considerable reduction in potential security issues that can result from orphaned AD accounts and incomplete de-provisioning processes.
