- 22 June, 2005 10:51
<p>Axios Systems (www.axiossystems.com), a leading provider of Best Practice-based consolidated IT Service Management software solutions, today announced a global agreement with M-Tech Information Technology, Inc. (www.mtechit.com) - adding its market-leading Identity Management Suite™ to Axios’ best-of-breed integrated solutions offering.
Today's organizations rely on an increasing number of information systems, each with their own user database, passwords and access privileges. As the number of systems grow, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage access securely and efficiently.
Axios Systems has partnered with M-Tech to provide an integrated solution that streamlines the administration of user authentication, access privileges and regulatory compliance across the enterprise. M-Tech’s Identity Management Suite simplifies and automates password management, account provisioning and non-password forms of authentication in a timely, efficient and secure manner.
Many organizations have recognized the significant benefits that can be realized from Identity Management, especially when integrated with Service Desk solutions and processes.
Highlighting the benefits of Password Reset in a recent research note, Gartner, Inc. states, "Self-service password reset is a viable, cost saving information security control. It is, by far, one of the strongest business cases for automation," *
“We are delighted to be working with M-Tech, providing our customers and prospects with best-of-breed Identity Management solutions, complementing our own IT Service Management solution - assyst,” said Tasos Symeonides, CEO of Axios Systems.
"This partnerships illustrates M-Tech's leadership in the global Identity Management market and the growing adoption of our solutions outside of North America," says Gideon Shoham, CEO of M-Tech. "In addition to North America, Axios offers specialized expertise and local market presence across EMEA and Asia Pacific, extending the value proposition of M-Tech solutions to these regions."
