SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/21/11 -- Ensim, the leading provider of solutions to manage, orchestrate, and automate private and public cloud infrastructure, today announced that it has been selected by a Global 50 corporation to provision and manage its corporate-wide Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS) and Group Chat infrastructure. Ensim Unify OCS Manager breaks new ground by enabling medium and large organizations to automate security and compliance policies down to the feature level within this popular Microsoft unified communications (UC) product.
The explosive growth of unified communications applications poses significant security and compliance challenges, including requiring support for complex IT policies, such as multiple provisioning workflows for different types of employees in large regulated environments. Additional capabilities addressed by Ensim Unify OCS Manager include multi-level help desk support and the ability to minimize the burden on IT caused by manual or scripted update processes. Most importantly in terms of cost savings, customers using Ensim Unify to automate manual processes and enable self-service are seeing over 70% reductions in support and help desk costs.
Ensim Unify OCS Manager delivers a provisioning and management solution that integrates with a customer's existing directory infrastructure and provisioning policies and supports multiple provisioning workflows, while automating the hundreds of daily updates. Its delegated administration model enables end-user self-service based on IT policy while offering full audit and reporting for these processes. In addition, Ensim's OCS Manager provides the needed fine-grain control or entitlements at the feature level to fully automate enforcement of compliance policy while insulating organizations from the need to make changes to their legacy systems with each new release.
The size and complexity of this type of customer installation is a testament to the capabilities and scalability of the Ensim Unify platform with its proven role-based delegation engine that allows the highest degree of control over application features in applications such as OCS including VOIP telephony and Group Chat. Ensim Unify works with existing ID management solutions to allow organizations to take full advantage of their Microsoft application software such as Exchange, SharePoint, and OCS/Lync. Key capabilities include:
"Manually or script-based provisioning of users and managing access to the full range of OCS features while strictly adhering to IT compliance and security policy is a complicated and expensive undertaking fraught with the potential of serious errors," said Scott Young, vice president of marketing and product management at Ensim Corporation. "Ensim OCS Manager enables businesses to realize the promise of unified communications without the headache of increased IT overhead. We are very pleased to have been chosen by these larger organizations to navigate the complexities of their large OCS deployment with even greater ease."
