Ensim Announces Support for Google Apps With Launch of New Unify Service Manager


(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SANTA CLARA, CA, February 3 / MARKET WIRE/ --

Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of
change management, user provisioning and access control software, today
announced support for Google Apps? with the release of a new connector for
its award-winning Ensim Unify Enterprise Edition. Ensim Unify Service
Manager for Google Apps enables enterprises to seamlessly manage both their
on-premise and cloud environments through a single management console.

"Many organizations are actively pursuing cloud-based computing initiatives
in an effort to lower IT costs and improve flexibility," said Scott Young,
vice president of marketing and product management at Ensim Corporation.
"For most of these organizations, it's not an 'all or nothing' proposition.
They need to be able to smoothly integrate cloud-based services with their
existing IT infrastructure. Our Ensim Unify Service Manager for Google Apps
removes the complexity and overhead costs associated with managing two
distinct environments, and instead allows peaceful coexistence while
ensuring compliance with existing security, access control, and compliance
audit requirements."

Using Ensim Unify Service Manager for Google Apps, IT administrators can
seamlessly, provision, de-provision, manage access and configure Google
Apps accounts for any user within their existing Microsoft Active Directory
and Exchange infrastructure -- all from a single web-based management
console. The new connector reduces administrative overhead costs by
allowing IT administrators to extend role-based administration to other
groups from help desk staff and human resources all the way to end users.
Tasks such as email list and nickname management can be delegated to end
users, allowing them to set up owners for each email list and delegate
membership management to the respective owners.

"Like many academic institutions, we have Active Directory, but we are also
implementing infrastructure using Google Apps, and would like to simplify
the management of this mixed environment," said Umesh Reddy, Manager for
Systems Team at Jackson State University. "Ensim Unify Service Manager for
Google Apps provides a more efficient way to meet our students' and
faculty's IT demands because it removes the risk and burden of having to
make manual updates, while letting them manage certain tasks on their own
in one place."

The key features of Ensim Unify Service Manager for Google Apps include the
ability for system administrators to configure IT policy including:

-- Suspend users
-- Restore users
-- Reset passwords
-- Manage nicknames and distribution lists


Self-service options available for Google Apps include:

-- Management of Distribution Lists (may be subscription-based)
-- Password Management

-- Management of Nicknames


"We see universities considering hosted solutions, and many are going with
Google Apps for Education," said Scott McMullan, Google Apps Partner Lead.
"Solutions like Ensim's make it easier for academia and enterprises alike
to get the most out of their hosted solutions."
