Avatier Adds Identity Access Management Software to Microsoft Lync Server 2010 [Health & Beauty Close - Up]
(Health & Beauty Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Avatier Corp., a provider of identity access management software, announced the integration of its Identity Enforcer user provisioning module with Microsoft Lync 2010.
With this new integration, Identity Enforcer automates Microsoft Lync user provisioning and deprovisioning of Active Directory accounts, thereby greatly reducing risk and optimizing workflow, the Company said.
Using a single, familiar interface through which users can keep track of their contacts' availability; send an IM; make a phone call; or start or join an audio, video or Web conference, Microsoft Lync provides rich Unified Communications functionality for organizations. But it can also introduce serious risk and operational inefficiencies to an environment through manual user provisioning and deprovisioning of Active Directory accounts. But by integrating Avatier's Identity Enforcer module with Microsoft Lync, these tasks are automated. Identity Enforcer can also be used to Lync-enable existing Active Directory accounts, remove Microsoft Lync from any Active Directory account, or even manage a user's conference policy throughout the account's lifetime. With Identity Enforcer in place as the gatekeeper, organizations using Microsoft Lync maintain tighter control over provisioning and deprovisioning its users, in turn streamlining operations and reducing risk.
"In the past year, Microsoft Lync has emerged as a popular intra- company communications tool. Although its merits have proven valuable, it also introduces risks that can threaten an organization's overall security and efficiency," said Nelson Cicchitto, chairman and CEO of Avatier. "By integrating the Identity Enforcer module with Microsoft Lync, we continue our commitment to creating innovative and feature-rich solutions that mitigate risk, improve operational efficiency and relieve pressure on IT staff."
